Transit centers can be particularly hazardous for those with visual or other impairments, and safety for all is of the utmost importance. Take a look at ADA Solutions, Inc.’s detectable warning tile options available specifically for transit facilities in the overview below, all of which have been shown to consistently exceed the specifications laid out for tactile warning surfaces.
ADA Solutions offers a number of options when it comes to our durable and 100% replaceable cast-in-place tactile warning surfaces. These tiles are constructed of a composite material made from glass, carbon, and fiberglass, making them durable and wear-resistant. These tiles come in staggered-dome configuration, as well as a range of UV-stable and colorfast contrast colors to aid with visual, underfoot, and cane-tap identification. The cast-in-place warning tiles are designed for use in new transit facilities, to be laid during construction.
Many transit facilities are older and were constructed before the most recent Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG). In these cases, ADA Solutions offers surface-applied tactile warning tiles, which can be retrofitted over older construction to avoid the need for new construction and satisfy ADAAG. These warning systems are manufactured with the same high standards as our cast-in-place tile, made from a glass, carbon, and fiberglass composite material for extended life and color contrast. We offer surface-applied tile in both staggered-dome and in-line options with either ship lap or butt joint configurations to retrofit transit centers with any type of construction or layout.
ADA Solutions, Inc. is an industry leader in the field of tactile warning systems for Americans with disabilities. Our products have set the standard for these warning tiles, providing durable and safe warning systems available for both new and old construction.
