How high do restroom signs on the wall need to be hung?

Strategically placing a safety sign in your workplace or establishment is important to guiding people with vision impairments. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as a general rule, a restroom sign should be hung 48 to 60 inches from the floor. Also, a sign must be placed on a wall adjacent to the side where the handle of the door is. This way, a user can easily find which door a safety sign refers to.
