Swift drain carries a number of manufacturers, including top national brands such as ADA Tile, NFCO, and Access Tile. Our drain systems, ADA tiles, and detectable warning plate products are all carefully sourced and of unbeatable quality.
ADA Tiles and Detectable Warning Plates
ADA tiles and detectable warning plates are installed into the ground to warn visually impaired individuals that they are approaching a road crossing or an unsafe and unprotected area. Detectable warning products are extremely useful in alerting those who are visually disabled to elevator entrances, unprotected drop-offs at train stations, ramps, stair tops and bottoms, and sidewalks.
The terms detectable warning mat, detectable warning tiles, detectable warning plates, ADA tiles, truncated dome mats, and tactile warning surfaces all refer to the same truncated dome surfaces that help visually disabled citizens navigate safely.
All detectable warning products must be compliant with the federal and local requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which became law in 1990. To meet ADA requirements, ADA tiles must be easily felt underfoot and under wheelchairs, easily detected by guidance canes, and easily seen. In order to be easily seen, detectable warning plates should be a color that is significantly contrasting to the surrounding surfaces. ADA tiles must also have a wet and dry slip-resistant surface to prevent falls and accidents, be corrosion resistant, and be rigorously tested.
Each of the ADA tiles and detectable warning plates sold by Swift Drain are compliant with each of the American’s with Disability Act requires and help to ensure the safety of visually impaired citizens.
Cast In Place ADA Tiles
Cast In Place ADA tiles are considered the most financially friendly detectable warning surface option on the market. Cast in place tiles can be installed into wet concrete within minutes, which helps to limit costs. This option is also lightweight and easy to handle for a hassle-free installation. Cast In Place ADA Tiles are widely considered the best option for new constructions.
Our cast in place ADA tiles are available in a sturdy polymer material or cast iron and come in a range of bright colors. The color options include federal yellow, safety red, ocean blue, onyx black, and brick red to ensure the plates are easily visible.
This detectable surface is also designed with sound reflection technology to ensure cane users can hear an audible difference between the walkway surface and the truncated dome surface of ADA tiles.
Customers are also able to choose from a wide variety of size options when purchasing our ADA Tiles. The available sizes include 1×1, 2×2, 2×3, 2×4, 2×5, 3×4, and 3×5 feet. Our detectable warning surfaces are also available in a 15-foot radius curve shape. With so many size options, you are bound to find a detectable warning surface to suit your needs.
Surface Applied Warning Plates
Surface Applied Warning Plates are another affordable option when it comes to detectable warning surfaces. However, this option is considered the most environmentally friendly type of ADA tile. Not only are the materials used environmentally friendly, but so is the installation process.
Surface Applied Warning Plates are the most suitable option for pre-existing constructions and concrete surfaces that do not yet meet the ADA requirements. With tamper-proof stainless steel fasteners, clients can also join multiple surface applied warning plates to create a larger detectable warning surface area that remains flush.
The color options for Surface Applied Warning Plates are the same as those for the Cast in Place ADA Tiles and include federal yellow, safety red, ocean blue, onyx black, and brick red. The available Surface Applies Warning Plate sizes are 1×1, 2×2, 2×3, 2×4, 2×5, 3×4, and 3×5 feet, with the option of a 15-foot radius curve plate. This option is also available in a durable polymer material that encompasses sound reflective technology to ensure cane users are alerted to the change in surface.
Swift Drain is your one-stop-shop for all ADA compliant detectable warning surface products. All of our products are affordable, easy to install, and are 100% in adherence to ADA requirements.
