ADA Solutions cast in replaceable tactile panels offer an effective and practical way to improve accessibility for individuals with visual impairments. These tactile panels are specifically designed to comply with ADA regulations, providing tactile cues that aid navigation and wayfinding. The panels are cast using durable materials and are typically installed in sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, or other public areas. The advantage of the replaceable design is that if the tactile panels become damaged or worn over time, they can be easily removed and replaced, ensuring that the accessibility features remain functional and reliable. ADA solutions cast in replaceable tactile panels play a crucial role in creating inclusive environments and promoting independent mobility for people with visual disabilities.
Features & Advantages
Body thickness is 0.20” not including truncated domes (10% greater than the closest alternative).
Panel weight is 2.25 lbs. per SF (12% more material than the closest alternative).
Four-Sided Embedment Flange is 0.75” deep and 1.02” thick.
Utilizes time-tested and proven 0.5” x 1.5” Corrosion Resistant Concrete Inserts with 6,200 psi. of pulldown strength per insert.
Inserts are housed in a 0.5” recessed fixture on the back side of the panel.
This ensures 2” of embedment depth into the concrete (50% deeper than the closest alternative).
The Replaceable unit is secured into the anchor with a 0.5” x 1.5” heavy-duty metal bolt located 0.25” into the body of the panel.
