ADA Tiles also known as a tactile tile or detectable warning tile, is a type of pavement marker used to provide warning and guidance to people with visual impairments. ADA tiles are required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and are typically installed in areas where pedestrian traffic and vehicular traffic intersect. Crosswalks, transit platforms, and parking lots are essential for a property to be ADA compliant.
ADA tiles are designed with a pattern of raised bumps that are detectable by people using canes or by those walking with their feet. These bumps provide a tactile signal to people with visual impairments, alerting them to changes in the walking surface, such as the presence of a curb, a ramp, or a hazardous drop-off . Truncated domes also let them know they are entering on a vehicle passing area.
ADA tiles are made from a variety of materials, including Plastic, rubber, and Galvanized Steel. They come in a range of colors and patterns, but they must meet specific size and spacing requirements to be compliant with the ADA.
