Originally enacted in 2013, the California Title 24 restroom sign specifications and building code regulations have been revised several times. The 2017 version requires that all public bathrooms have two signs – one on the restroom door and the other on a nearby wall. Title 24 also mandates that single-user bathrooms accommodate both genders, and marked accordingly with unisex toilet signs labeled All Gender Restroom. As before, multiple-user toilet facilities in California may be gender-specific with Men’s, Women’s or Unisex symbols and labels.
Under Title 24 California restroom signs must include the appropriate internationally recognized male, female or unisex symbol. Bathrooms that are wheelchair accessible should also include the approved wheelchair symbol. Wall signs indicating the presence of a nearby bathroom should incorporate raised tactile lettering, gender or unisex symbol, and Braille characters. As with ADA signage specs, the Title 24 Building Code also requires wall mounting at a height accessible by someone seated in a wheelchair or motorized scooter. Tactile lettering and symbology is not recommended for bathroom doors - to avoid having someone struck by a swinging door while trying to read the sign.
AB 1732 SINGLE-USER GENDER-NEUTRAL RESTROOM SIGNAGE
California Assembly Bill No. 1732 Chapter 18 becomes effective March 1, 2017. It mandates that all single-user toilet facilities in businesses, government facilities or other places of public accommodation be identified by All-Gender Restroom signs.
In addition to requiring compliance with California Title 24 bathroom sign regulations, AB 1732 now advises that building inspectors and other officials responsible for code enforcement may inspect toilet facilities for compliance during any inspection of these locations. California AB 1732 restroom sign regulations for single user toilet facilities apply to any restroom with no more than one water closet and one urinal, with a door lock controlled by the user.
