The Americans with Disability Act (ADA) provides specific regulation regarding detectable warnings surfaces on sidewalk curb ramps, requiring the installation of truncated domes, such as Access® Tile.
Access® Tile’s ADA truncated domes, and directional wayfinding tiles are a popular choice within municipalities due to industry leading durability, design and non-slip surface. We’ve molded our ADA tactile warning tiles in a slip-resistant grid pattern to provide contrast texture, color, and visual warnings.
Having Access® Tile ADA truncated domes installed on sidewalk curb ramps may prevent incidences of slips and falls by serving as an indicator to slow down and evaluate the environment before proceeding into a potential hazard. Our engineering and manufacturing divisions collaborate to design high-quality tactile walking surface indicators that exceed the specifications of government agencies, municipalities, and contractors. In addition to the tactile warning surface, Access®Tile products are a completely non-slip surface.
Access® Tile’s detectable warning tiles are available in Replaceable Cast in Place, Curved Radius and Surface Applied truncated domes. Each detectable warning pad serves to warn pedestrians when they are entering walkway areas shared with vehicular traffic.
Access® Tile tactile warning systems reduce infrastructure costs while maintaining the integrity of the ADA and state regulations, which is why more and more municipalities are choosing Access® Tile as their supplier for truncated dome ADA compliant tiles.
Access® Tile’s radius curve calculator can assist you to quickly prepare a design layout of your slip-resistant surface for ramps and sidewalk curb ramps. All you need to know is the curb cut ramp radius, and arc length and the Access® Tile radius curve calculator will plot the number of truncated dome tiles your project needs, with exact sizes and quantities. You’re able to quickly download a blueprint of how the Access® Tile are positioned, and for more detailed ADA slip resistance requirements, our technical specialists are available to assist with product specifications.
An ADA slip-resistant surface and high-quality design are just part of what makes Access® Tile products a reliable choice. The Replaceable Cast in Place ADA tiles are suited for any wet set concrete applications. They’re ideal for updating existing sites or new sidewalk curb ramps with barrier-free pathways and offering 7 customizable tactile panels to choose from, as well as, 24in. X 30in. radius curved truncated domes. Our Replaceable Cast in Place ADA truncated domes and detectable wayfinding tiles are specifically designed to be installed and easily replaced in wet set concrete during new construction.
Our Access® Tile Surface Applied truncated dome, and detectable wayfinding tiles are used to retrofit ADA curb ramp designs, vehicular passageways, and parking areas. Each Surface Applied ADA tile includes a tactile warning area with a large and aesthetically pleasing beveled edge for a smooth transition. Included within each truncated dome slip resistant installation kit is tactile bond and seal surface applied adhesive and color matched Axius® fasteners for preventing trip hazards. Our Axius® fasteners are pre-assembled for quick truncated dome installation, safe from any pre-expansion during installation and specifically designed for concrete; leaving a neat flush finish. Our standard Surface Applied ADA tactile warning tiles matches our Replaceable Cast in Place tile sizes: 12″ x 12″, 24″ x 24″, 24″ x 36″, 24″ x 48″, 24″ x 60″, 36″ x 48″, and 36″ x 60″, as well as the 24″ x 30″ Radius Curved truncated domes.
All of our sound amplifying tactile surface ADA compliant tiles are manufactured to be colorfast, UV-stable with homogenous engineered polymers, processing, and material technologies enhanced with fiberglass-truncated domes. We manufacture all our ADA surface tiles in the United States with the highest quality materials, to ensure they exceed rigorous product testing from water absorption, durability, slip resistance, wear, weather and chemical resistance to compression strength, and detectability.
Standard color contrasts include Orchre Yellow, Federal Yellow, Safety Red, Colonial Red, Brick Red, Ocean Blue, Bright White, Light Gray, Dark Grey, and Onyx Black. In support of superior barrier-free wheelchair, walker and shopping cart mobility, our ADA truncated domes have a center-to-center spacing of 2.35 inches with an esthetically appealing truncated dome and background Access+® surface pattern that is only is found in our Access® Tile detectable warning products. Access® Tile ADA truncated dome and detectable wayfinding tiles are manufactured in the United States. Our tiles include a 5-year warranty and require little or no maintenance while providing superior non-slip properties for a cost-efficient detectable warning system.
