As you are probably aware by now if you are an owner of a business located on premises, where staff are employed and or where the general public can frequent, you are required by law to display DDA manifestations in the style of partition graphics. The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), 2004 exists to make sure all interior glass manifestation installations are “marked” in some way, purely so people don’t injure themselves by crashing into them. The act is the result of campaigning from disabilities groups, who wanted to minimize the amount of incidents whereby those with disabilities, namely people with sight issues, hurt themselves by walking into unmarked partitions.
The new law doesn’t have to be seen as a problem or a chore, in fact quite the opposite it offers companies the unique opportunity to decorate a space inside their company with brand specific art work that has otherwise gone unadorned. You can meet the DDA requirements whilst at the same time enhancing the look and feel of the space concerned.
At Aspect Signs we can create a variety of glass manifestations for your brand, out of laser cut vinyl. The manifestations can feature several duplicates of your logo, lines or something completely different all together. The decals are easy to apply and can be removed at a later date with out any lasting damage to the glass.
According to the regulations the glazing of internal and external walls, in public spaces, should take the form of the following; broken or solid lines, patterns or company logos with a gap no wider than 400mm.
Glass entrance doors and glazed screens require manifestation on the glass at two levels, 850 to 1000mm and 1400 and 1600mm above the floor, resembling a clear difference between the background as seen through the glass (both sides from inside and outside) in any light. If the manifestation takes the form of a logo it must be least 150mm high (repeated on glazed screens)
