Braille Labels Decals

Along with audio, one of the mandated requirements for ADA Accessibility are braille labels, especially ones that last…

Quote — “As I had mentioned I am trying to figure out who handles the Airline Industry ticketing Kiosks, every time I travel, I see what is being installed on ticketing Kiosks or the lack of and I know that we can provide a much superior product that will last and hold up to the heavy public exposure keeping the Kiosk 100% ADA complaint and legible.  I was stuck in Long Beach due to flight / weather cancellations for the last two days and had plenty of time to stare at their ticketing kiosks”, said Ken Parnell.

At SysTech Displays, we offer a wide range of standard Braille decal sets, voice guidance signage, audio signage, and network decals for most makes and models of ATMs. We also have an in-house design team that can help with custom ATM signage.

Our “SOLID” dot Braille has proven to stay ADA compliant for the life of the decal, especially in the harsh and rough outdoor environments where the users are constantly tossing the vehicles on the ground or against curbs where an embossed Braille decal will not stay compliant.  I have photos of vehicles that are in the recycling bins with our Braille and serialized decals looking as good as the day they were installed on new bikes two years prior, and the vehicles are destroyed.

Feedback

I am glad to hear that you like our “Solid Dot” Braille decals.  It is difficult to understand the difference unless you can touch and see our Braille.  We worked closely with the ATM manufacturing companies as well as the banking industry when the ADA laws were passed and came into effect in 1989.  We have been the main supplier for Bank Of America and several others since 1990… There are a few that originally went with a more cost-effective way of manufacturing the Braille decals by embossing, but eventually they had all found themselves in litigation when the embossing failed and eventually partnered with us.  We can proudly say that for several years we have had national contracts with the top 6 banks in the US.   Embossing print films causes micro cracking at the base of each Braille dot. Over time in an outdoor environment, or when sunlight directly contacts Braille, the dots do two things. They “relax” causing the dot height to decrease, and the base of the dots will crack so that the dots can be picked off.  Using our “welded dot technology” eliminates both issues, therefore keeping the Braille compliant throughout the life of the decal.  Our clients that have ATM’s in harsh outdoor environments like Phoenix or Chicago will change out decal sets on average once every 5 years, unless they go through a refresh or they rebrand.  We are currently at the tail end of changing out all of Wells Fargo’s 12,000 ATM’s and are about to embark on a refresh for Bank Of America’s 15,000 ATM’s.
