accessibility & barrier free signs
Good Design is Accessible Design
eyecandy SIGNS INC. is an internationally acclaimed sign company with a reputation for accessibility design, integrity and fabrication innovation. Working within the healthcare and education fields, we have given precedence to identifying braille technologies that uphold the standards for barrier free signs as outlined in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Photopolymer is our preferred fabrication process and is increasingly specified by architects as accessible room identification signs.
In 2015 eyecandy SIGNS INC. became preferred fabricators for accessibility advocates, NovaPolymers. We partner with NovaPolymer to provide continued education courses on Accessibility Design for the architect and design community throughout North America.
