Though many visually impaired individuals are entirely independent and mobile, navigating city streets presents a greater safety risk to them than to others. That’s why ADA Solutions, Inc. strives to make life simpler for Americans with disabilities with our line of tactile warning systems. Here are five facts about our business and products:
- We’re the industry leader in TWS products.
Though there are several imitators, no one makes tactile warning surface (TWS) products quite like ADA Solutions. Our superior products have made us the leading manufacturer of tactile warning surface products in the U.S., and our systems can be found all over.
- Our products are ADA compliant.
For over 20 years, the Americans with Disabilities Act and subsequent amendments have laid down a number of strict regulations. Our products are in full compliance. Our truncated domes, for example, are the correct height, width, and distance apart.
- We create custom-colored systems.
When most people think of tactile warning systems, they imagine yellow, bumpy patches of sidewalk. While we do offer the traditional yellow domes, we can make our systems virtually any color you want.
- Our products allow for several installation options.
Many cities and transit companies are hesitant to install tactile warning systems because of the perceived difficulty of installation. Luckily, our systems can be adapted to accommodate a wide range of installation methods—from new construction to retrofitting.
- Our systems are UV and temperature resistant.
Since tactile warning systems are usually exposed to the elements, they need to be as resilient as possible. In addition to their ability to withstand constant foot traffic, our composite tactile warning systems can stand up to decades of UV rays and extreme temperatures.
If you have any questions about tactile warning systems, contact ADA Solutions, Inc. We know how important it is for visually impaired individuals to have full access to businesses and public areas—that’s why we’re dedicated to installing truncated dome tactile warning systems on as many city curbs as we can.
