Crown Brands Introduces Gender Neutral Restroom Signage

By Lee Davis, CFSP


No matter where you come down on the issue of gender neutral restrooms and gender identity, the reality is that operators must find solutions that inform all of their patrons about what facilities are available, and where they are located. Depending on the operation, simple “His” and “Hers” signs may no longer be sufficient.


Update International, from Crown Brands, has you covered. They’ve introduced new signage for “All Gender Restrooms.” These are 6”x9” signs with self adhesive backing. They are professional looking, easy to read, and include Braille to satisfy the Americans with Disabilities Act.


The signs also feature the traditional standard international symbols for “Women” (stick figure in a dress), and “Men”(stick figure in pants) along with a new third international graphic symbol that combines both (stick figure with half a dress and half a pair of pants). These signs will satisfy policy and code requirements, and let your customers know you are aware of the issue, and seeking to accommodate all.


Update International has a large selection of other signage for food service operations as well. Visit the Update International website and then select “Signage & Crowd Control” from the menu to view their entire collection.
