ADA Warning Surfaces
ADA Detectable Warning Product

Detectable Warning Surfaces

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) “recognizes and protects the civil rights of people with disabilities.” One sector of the ADA mandates that newly constructed pedestrian street crossings – curbs, curb ramps, blended transitions, rail crossings, medians and refuge islands – have detectable warnings for visually impaired individuals. The government also recommends retrofitting existing pedestrian street crossings wherever possible.

ADA Mats feature a distinctive pattern of raised domes which provide a perceptible detection by cane or by foot warning of an impending pedestrian crossing. In accordance with ADA regulations, raised truncated domes have a diameter of nominal 0.9″, a height of nominal 0.2″, a center-to-center spacing of 1.6″ minimum and 2.4″ maximum. Mats are “created” using tiles of various sizes: 24″x36″, 24″x48″, 24″x60″, 36″x48″, or 36″x60″. Fabricated of a homogeneous glass and carbon composite which is colorfast and UV stable; standard colors include: Federal Yellow, Brick Red, Clay Red, Dark Grey and Black.  Mats are Replaceable, Surface Mount (includes fasteners and adhesive) and Cast-In-Place.

Dome Layout

  • In-Line truncated domes comply with all ADA specifications
  • North-South & East-West spacing is 2.35″
  • The TufTile name is molded into every part identifying us as the manufacturer for future reference
  • When installing multiple TufTiles maintain a 3/32″ gap between them. TufTile remain ADA compliant when tiles are properly installed

Replaceability

  • TufTiles are replaceable. Replacement is an economic alternative to concrete replacement
  • Anchor holes and panel depth is uniform between products. TufTile Wet-Set tiles and Surface-Applied are designed to last for years in normal wear & tear, urban environments. We recognize that abnormal things can happen and at times tiles may need to be replaced. The fact that TufTiles are replaceable offers a community or private property owner a longer life-cycle cost savings vs a concrete tear-out and re-pour.
