Accessibility Codes

Buildings throughout the world must be designed with signage that complies with local accessibility regulations, which can vary by country and region. At Nova Polymers, we make it our priority to manufacture products and equipment that allow fabricators to create accessibility code compliant wayfinding & safety signage for any building, anywhere.

Our support team has created accessibility code reference documentation and whitepapers for buildings in the USA, Canada, Britain, and Australia.
