Before 1990, many Americans faced daily challenges due to the lack of accommodations or proper warning systems. As you will learn in this video, 2010 was an important turning point for millions of disabled Americans.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 revised its regulations in March 2010 to make public places and businesses more accessible for all Americans. Before these new rules and standards, more than 50 million Americans were excluded from certain public roadways, golf courses, and pools just because they were disabled. Today, the ADA is more fully enforced.
In 2010, the Department of Justice deemed truncated domes the most effective tactile warning system for the visually impaired. Find out how to make your business or jurisdiction ADA-compliant by calling the team at ADA Solutions, Inc. at (888) 485-5726 today.

Tactile warning systems with truncated domes are ideal for any area in which a change of terrain occurs. For example, they are often used at the edges of sidewalks to indicate to a person with vision impairment that they are about to cross a street. They may be used along the edges of sidewalks to guide a pedestrian safely around a corner. These tactile warning systems may also indicate to a pedestrian that they are about to encounter a step or a set of stairs, or that they are about to walk up or down a ramp.
Many business owners use tactile warning systems to help safely guide pedestrians to their facilities. However, they are quite versatile. They can also be used in transit facilities to alert pedestrians that they are approaching subway tracks.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law. It was signed in 1990 and went into effect in 1992. Its purpose is to ensure that people with disabilities have equal access to public and private businesses, transportation services, governmental buildings, and similar places. To become ADA-compliant, a business owner must ensure that his or her employees are able to work and move about the building freely, and that clients and customers are able to do the same.
Under the ADA, businesses must make whatever modifications are necessary, such as installing warning systems, to ensure the safety of all patrons and employees. This could mean widening doorways to make them accessible to those in wheelchairs, installing ramps, and clearing aisles of obstructions.
ADA Solutions, Inc. has been helping businesses become more accessible for more than 20 years with our comprehensive range of tactile warning systems. Call us today at (888) 485-5726 to learn more about ADA warning strips.

Installing tactile warning systems around your business improves the navigability of the area for those with visual impairments. There are several different types of warning systems that you might consider installing. Explore all of your options before choosing which systems are right for your business. Here’s an overview of a few of them:
Surface-applied tactile warning systems are applied retroactively, or to concrete surfaces that have already been poured, set, and hardened. These warning systems are generally available in rectangular tiles or radius tiles that are designed to fit around a curve, such as the perimeter of a curving sidewalk. The perimeter of the tiles features beveled edges to allow for smooth transitions for pedestrians.
If you’re remodeling or constructing a new building, a cast-in-place warning system might be the best choice for you. These tiles have thicker tiles than the surface-applied systems because they are designed to be pressed directly into freshly poured concrete. These tactile warning systems are designed to withstand any weather conditions for long-term durability.
Directional Bar Tile
Directional bar tiles can be used for either new or existing concrete surfaces. These tiles contain a series of bars that can be used to guide pedestrians with low vision toward a particular facility or walkway.
A guide tile is much like a directional bar tile. However, this type of tactile warning system is used to help pedestrians safely cross roadways.
Many tactile warning systems are available in rectangle shapes. However, it can be challenging to fit these applications to surfaces that are curved. Radius systems address this dilemma by providing a gentle curve to the tiles. These systems can be available in surface-applied or cast-in-place applications.
