Our ADA Warning Surfaces: World-Class Manufacturing and Craftsmanship
These heavy-duty fiberglass polymer composite warning surface panels and tiles are manufactured in our state-of-the-art ISO 9002-certified facility located in Northeast Ohio. ADA Solutions’ products are UV stable with homogenous color throughout the entire panel.
These panels contain premium-quality long-strand fiberglass in the base material (25%). During the sheet molding process, the fiberglass is evenly dispersed into the body of the panel and into the truncated domes. This is a critical feature because the truncated domes are the primary point of contact and are subjected to the highest degree of exposure to foot traffic, rolling apparatus, and street cleaning equipment.
ADA Solutions incorporates color pigment and UV additive chemistries prior to production. The combination ensures that our panels are homogeneous in color with ample amounts of UV protection evenly dispersed throughout the entire body of the panel, including within the truncated domes.

ADA COMPLIANCE AND TACTILE WARNING SURFACES
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)—originally passed in 1990 and amended in 2008—calls for tactile walking surfaces to be installed at all public rights-of-way to improve accessibility. The majority of companies, public and private, with fifteen or more employees are required to comply with the accessibility guidelines of the ADA. If your company serves the general populace, it is likely that your facility is expected to be ADA compliant.
ADA guidelines have standardized the use of detectable warning surfaces in public places. Also commonly referred to as tactile warning surfaces, these types of tiles are built into or applied on top of existing sidewalks, walkways, transit platforms, and other walking surfaces on which visually impaired pedestrians may travel.
Sensory signals are provided via truncated domes, so pedestrians are aware of the safest path of travel at the edge of a sidewalk, near a vehicular path, or where the surface elevation changes. ADA standards provide guidance on the dimensions and placement of the tactile warning surfaces and the spacing, height, shape, and alignment of truncated domes. At ADA Solutions, all our tactile warning products meet these specifications.
ADA Detectable Warning Surfaces Are Required On:
- Platform edges on rail and bus stations
- Curb ramps
- Handicap ramps
- Exterior paths of travel
- Where retail entry and exit points connect to vehicular ways or parking areas
- Change in elevation along public path of travel
- Refuge islands greater than 6 feet in length
