Why Use AS&S?

Architectural Symbols and Signs

Why our products stand out

Architectural Symbols and Signs (AS&S) offer a comprehensive range of Braille and tactile signs for blind and visually impaired people, which conform to the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). Although many other Braille sign companies offer a similar service, the sheer range of our products and standard of our auditing expertise in determining where Braille and tactile signs should be positioned is unmatched.

Our dedicated staff have spent years in the field with blind and visually impaired groups discussing the necessity for the right Braille signage and its optimum positioning, therefore we have a good understanding of your needs.

Architectural Symbols and Signs Products

Braille finger push plates signs
Our Braille signs are manufactured to the highest standards and are generally available in two sizes – 12 inches x 4 inches and 12 inches x 3 inches; in addition, we can also produce custom sizes.

Architectural Symbols and Signs can punch any message in any language on your Braille signs to help blind and visually impaired visitors or employees move around your building with ease. Typically, Braille signs are fixed to doors, where they will be easily found, and at heights within reach of the mobility impaired.

Tactile signs
Architectural Symbols and Signs also produce high quality Tactile signs that are best utilised in conjunction with Braille signs as not everyone can read Braille; such as those with visual impairments.

Our standard tactile signs come with yellow or white letters on a black background for optimum contrast and visibility. In addition, the letters are photo-luminescent (they glow in the dark) and therefore offer fantastic colour contrast in all light conditions (Architectural Symbols and Signs are the only company in the world to use this method).

To finish them off, we then mount our tactile plates on a quality satin stainlessbrass, or bronze plate, which is the same material that is used for the Braille signs.

Braille Strips
Another area where Architectural Symbols and Signs excel is in the production of Braille strips; again a unique design by AS&S. These handy Braille signs are used by many organisations that want to offer Braille signage in lots of different areas.
