The New Standard in Detectable Warnings and Truncated Domes
Detectile was founded on a simple premise: to manufacture the highest quality ADA compliant detectable warning products at a cost-effective price. Our commitment to this mission drives every decision we makes and allows us to produce durable, easy-to-install, and competitively priced detectable warnings for the visually impaired. Detectile’s detectable warning products fully comply with previous and proposed ADAAG standards and use the preferred truncated domes design to maximize detectability. Detectiles are the quick, easy, and cost effective solution to all of your detectable warning needs.
Proposed ADA Guidelines for Truncated Domes
The Access Board is currently finalizing new Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) (see, www.access-board.gov) for public rights-of-way that will address various issues related to detectable warning including recommended specifications for truncated domes. The new guidelines will provide guidelines for truncated domes for use at pedestrian access to sidewalks and streets, including crosswalks, curb ramps, pedestrian signals, parking, and other components of public rights-of-way. To find out more about detectable warnings and the preferred truncated domes design, check out our various articles and check back soon for our new detectable warning blog.
