to the American Disabilities Act, Tile Tech has been involved with various
agencies to design and manufacture a paver which would aid the visually
impaired. These detectable warning pavers provide a series of raised
truncated domes that are readily detectable underfoot, and by cane.
Visualy impaired individuals depend on environmental cues, such as raised truncated
domes, to inform of potential hazards. ambient sounds and physical elements
that can be sensed by a cane or texture changes underfoot. Any pedestrian
area requiring the use of a detectable warning surface can utilize the
Detectable Warning Pavers. The distinctively textured walking surface
can help to warn pedestrians of an impending hazard on the route ahead.
Manufactured in accordance with the current requirements set forth in
the American Disabilities Act (ADA),
that is, straight alignment of its truncated domes, The Detectable Warning
Pavers are fabricated with a non-slip texture applied to the surface
of the pavers.
We manufacture our detectable warning pavers in several sizes and colors
to suit various design requirements and conform to the
ADA Code. Custom color and aggregate mixes are available upon special
request at no additional cost.
