Womens Shower Sign Purpose and Materials
This accessible womens’ shower sign includes the International Symbol of Accessibility (ISA), so please be sure your locker room is fully accessible as defined in §603 of the 2010 ADA standards before ordering. Additionally, this room sign uses the newer, modified International Symbol of Accessibility (ISA). While we prefer the new ISA, and it is required in NY and CT, please give your local building inspector a call to be sure it’s OK in your area. Go here to see the sign we carry without the ISA.
As a permanent room, showers are required to be identified with signs detailed in §703 of the 2010 ADA standards and this sign meets those requirements.
In case you are in the decision making process of whether or not to add a shower room to your facility, here’s a good article explaining why a shower and bike parking are part of responsible building ownership. Shower rooms are becoming an increasingly standard part of all larger buildings in most metros.
This sign is eligible for our end of life recycling program. When your sign needs change simply ship your signs to us and we’ll take care of the rest.
We first plane the raised womens shower sign elements off the wood base and dispose of them responsibly. Next, the wood sign base is shredded and the wood fibers get re-used as animal bedding, then as fertilizer, and finally they return to the earth as soil. We hope you can appreciate this is more responsible compared to the fossil fuel derived plastics used in most ADA signs. To make it easy to participate in our product recycling program we extend a 10% Green Dot Sign® credit for the value of the returned signs. To learn more or get started, visit our Sustainable Signs page and expand the “recycling” section at the bottom.
As with all our products, every business decision we make about this ADA sign, from production equipment and raw materials, to packaging and production location are weighted to produce both beautiful signs and a positive societal impact. We incorporate costs, durability & visual appeal with sustainability, biodiversity and fossil fuel use reduction to move forward with our goal of beautiful signs for a better planet.
