Detectable Warning Surface Pads
ADA Tactile Warning Mats for Walkways
Regulation compliance is important to all businesses and facilities throughout the country. A detectable warning surface is an economical way to stay in compliance with the Americans Disabilities Act (ADA). Detectable warning pads feature flexible matting surfaces that include raised, truncated domes to serve as an immediate texture change for walkers. These ADA warning mats precede intersections to warn pedestrians with visual impairments of the upcoming traffic junction.
The ADA warning pads have tough fibers that create firm, durable surfaces to warn oncoming walkers. Each detectable warning surface is additionally coated in two layers of gel to protect against sunlight and allow the mat to maintain its strength and color over an extended period of time. When compared to other composites, this unbreakable pad offers increased slip and impact resistance.
All ADA warning pads come with adhesives and anchors for installation. Adhesives attach to the back of the mat for complete installment to the ground. The ADA warning mats are a retrofit model, meaning they can be installed on top of already-constructed surfaces. The detectable warning surface fits on flat surfaces, sidewalks, slight inclines, dips, and slopes.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) passed in 1990, prohibiting discrimination based upon individual disability. One of the provisions requires tactile warning surfaces of a certain standard on walking surfaces – 28 CFR Part 26 (Section 4.29) ADA Standards for Accessible Design. The detectable warning mats offered by GEI Works are in complete compliance of these codes.
