Yet another day in which IPI’s products have rescued its customers from their worries with their UltraTech ADA Pads – designed specifically to aid the visually impaired. UltraTech ADA warning systems include ADA mats, ADA sidewalk pads, and ADA concrete mats which are structured in a truncated dome-like fashion, which is then placed over curbed sidewalks, ramps to assist those who are visually disabled. By defintion: "ADA Warning Pads are raised truncated dome surfaces built in or applied to walking surfaces to warn of hazards. Available in several colors including yellow"
These truncated dome mats can be placed over concrete– whether they are sidewalks or ramps; these ADA mats function as tactile warning strips to alert visually-impaired pedestrians.
These padded ADA mats are designed to make foot-travelers aware of its raised structure. This, along with the assistance of their walking cane, can become aware of any upcoming intersection that may be imminent, or, even potential dangerous objects which may be occupying their pathway. (Other potential hazards)
IPI’s UltraTech ADA detectable warning tiles warning are available in four sizes: (Yellow is most popular)
- 2’ x 2’
- 2’ x 3’
- 2’ x 4’
- 2’ x 5’
Four available sizes are available to help meet the requirements as set by both state and local governments that require from ADA pads. And if that wasn’t impressive enough, IPI also offers its ADA Warning Pads in colors like safety yellow as well as colors like brick red and safety red.
Thanks to its flexible design, these warning pads can fit onto dips, inclines, and slopes in sidewalks and walkways.
Another great reason why these warning pads are so valued is that they are easy to install. At the end of the day, who wants to deal with the hassle in setting up a simple ADA mat, right? To make the installation procedure even easier, IPI offers its UltraTech tactile warning tiles with adhesives and anchors included.
These anchors and adhesives are what keeps these mats in place firmly and provide much better slip resistance than any other composite material out in the market. Did we mention these ADA pads and mats are also unbreakable?
IPI’s ADA Pads are completely secure to be used on concrete surfaces. It can easily get attached to the pavement using its industrial-strength adhesive – which when it dries, sets securely and firmly. After that, concrete anchors are hatched on the corners of the pad to ensure firmer adhesion.
However, as a disclaimer, we would like to mention that IPI's UltraTech ADA pads are not to be applied to wet concrete. Instead, they are to be installed once any concrete or cemented area has been cured entirely. As for these pads being used on asphalt surfaces, they can be used but only with the aid of special adhesives.
Many wonder, why use ADA pads when stamped concrete would do the trick. The whole concept of ADA pads is to stand noticeably different when compared to adjoining surfaces to indicate as a warning for those who are visually challenged.
