How to Apply Handicap Signs Using Wheelchair Stencils
The first and foremost thing to prioritize when stenciling a handicap marking is the need of the people who are going to be using the parking space. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act, handicap-accessible parking stalls must be positioned near the entrance of the facility.
If the facility has multiple entrances, then the owner or the facility manager must ensure that there are multiple parking spaces accessible all over the property. Handicap parking spaces must also be located on level ground.
Using a broom and/or a power blower, remove dust, dried leaves, and loose asphalt from the parking stall.
If your client doesn't require a background, then lay out the stencil on the pavement and spray paint directly. But if the client requires a background, then trace the sides of the background with chalk or marker and fill it in with federal standard handicap blue paint. Let the paint dry.
Once the background is dry, paint the sign's border using a line striping machine. Let it dry.
Center the handicap stencil on the background and spray paint.
