ADA Solutions introduced our innovative approach to pedestrian safety with our photoluminescent walking surface product called Glow-Dome™. If there is a power failure or another incident that results in a sudden loss of light, our photoluminescent products will provide a distinct visual warning that has proven to be an economical way to significantly enhance emergency preparedness. Photoluminescent detectable warning surfaces deliver many benefits that bolster pedestrian safety without incurring expensive maintenance fees.
Features and Advantages:
- Not dependent on any power source—charged by ambient light
- Provides pedestrians with emergency visual cues
- Integrates performance, function, and appearance to provide pedestrians with a distinct visual cue
- Available in replaceable, retrofit transit, and paver tiles
About ADA Solutions’ Glow-Dome™
Glow-Dome™ tiles are ideal for zones where sunlight or other light sources may not be able to provide continuously adequate illumination, such as publicly accessible areas after dark as well as windowless rooms, hallways, and tunnels. In the event of a power outage, pedestrians who are not accustomed to relying on tactile surfaces may have difficulty finding the correct pathway. Our glow-in-the-dark ADA tiles, which can be integrated into a detectable warning surface, offer easy-to-follow visual guidance to people in the vicinity. Pedestrians will be able to see where they should go and—just as important—where they should not.
Because Glow-Dome™ tiles are not dependent on batteries or electricity, and contain no moving parts, they require very little maintenance. Photoluminescent detectable warning surfaces that use Glow-Dome™ can last for years without needing to be replaced or repaired. They combine the benefits of standard ADA-compliant detectable warning tiles (truncated domes, slip resistance, etc.) with the added security provided by glow-in-the-dark domes that are perceptible even in low-visibility conditions. In some regions, Glow-Dome™ aids compliance with local building codes that require photoluminescent tiles in certain areas.
