The first ADA door sign rule is in regarding to the area of mounting. The baseline can be mounted between 48 inches at the lowest point to 60 inches at the highest point. This ensures that the different size signs are placed within the same area. Elevator cars are not included in this rule.

On the other hand, for double doors that have two active leaves, the ADA door signs should be placed to the right of the right handed door. For double doors with one active leaf, the sign should be located on the inactive leaf.
