Install ADA Detectable Warning Surfaces

Posted by Gregg Parks on

Ensure that any property complies with current ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) regulations by installing ADA Solutions, Inc. Detectable Warning Surface Tiles.

Cast-in-Place Tiles

Completed installation of cast-in-place detectable warning tiles

Cast-in-Place Tiles are designed primarily for new construction and new concrete surfaces. Thus, if you are laying concrete on any property where an ADA truncated dome warning system is needed, a Cast-in-Place Tile is the right option for your project.

The Cast-in-Place Tile is used for new curb ramps or new construction applications and is a great long-term solution for any project, under any weather conditions.

The  Cast-in-Place Replaceable Tile is also used for new curb ramps or new construction applications and is the only 100% replaceable Detectable Warning product on the market.

Q: What tools are required to install Cast-in-Place Tiles?

A: You will require a rubber mallet, as well as  edgers and finishing tools. Also, a razor knife for removing the plastic protective covering after installation.

Surface-Mount Tiles

Preparing Surface-Mount Tile for install on existing surface

Preparing to secure Surface-Mount tile to existing surface

While Cast-in-Place Tiles are ideal for new building projects, both new and existing properties fall under the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Thus, ADA tiles are often needed in existing areas where replacing concrete is not feasible, necessary, or cost-effective. Surface-applied ADA warning tiles are meant for use on existing concrete in areas that require truncated dome tiles to ensure compliance with ADA regulations.

Surface-Mount Tiles are thinner than cast-in-place tiles and can be installed in approximately ten minutes for a fast, simple, and effective way to retrofit existing sidewalks, parking lots, walkways, and other areas. To install Surface-Mount Tiles, a combination of adhesive and fasteners is used to ensure the tile is mounted properly on the ground and prevent tile slippage or separation from the surrounding area for safety and efficacy.

Q: What is needed to install Surface-Mount Tiles?

A: Fasteners and adhesive are needed and are included with each tile. Purchase a quality sealant like MasterSeal® NP 1™ Polyurethane Sealant to seal the entire perimeter of installed tactile to finish the installation.

All ADA Solutions, Inc. truncated dome tactile surfaces are in full compliance with the American Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG), Public Right-of-Way (PROW) and California Title 24 Requirements. ADA Solutions Inc., products are approved for use by all major municipalities, DPWs and state DOTs.
