The Americans with Disability Act (ADA) was developed to enhance accessibility for people within the disabled community. ADA standards and regulations were made to include detectable warning surfaces on sidewalk curb ramps consisting of tactile paving designs for long-lasting use, versatility, and affordability.
Access® Tile ADA truncated domes and wayfinding tiles are the most cost-effective method of new curb ramp applications, as well as retrofitting existing curb ramps. Our ADA compliant detectable warning products are lightweight, easy to handle and can be easily cut to conform to various sizes and curb cut ramps.
Access® Tile products are available as Replaceable Cast in Place, Curved Radius and Surface Applied tiles. Truncated domes are required on all ADA compliant sidewalk curb ramps to warn pedestrians they are entering walkways areas shared with vehicular traffic.
Many jurisdictions are continuously researching ways to maximize their investments without raising taxes. Access® Tile’s tactile warning systems are the affordable alternative to reducing infrastructure costs while maintaining the integrity of the ADA and state regulations.
There are 3 main benefits in choosing Access® Tile for your next ADA curb ramp requirements:
