Accessibility legislation requires installation of TWSI’s on existent surfaces. Our Surface Applied TWSI’s, come as wayfinding bars, attention domes and step edge stair nosing to safely guide visually impaired people. Our code-compliant tactile solutions come in tiles or single domes / bars. Tiles come in different sizes and can be cut to fit various applications including curved surfaces, making it easy to install without ripping out existent surfaces. Our surface applied tactile solutions are available in different materials for indoor & outdoor installation. The tactile tiles are offered in various colors allowing you to choose the color of the tactile solution keeping it in contrast with the surface and can be installed onto a flat area or on stair edges. Our solutions are ADA compliant, wear and weather resistant and some even fire-resistant.
Our code compliant “glued” tactile solutions offer easy installation for retrofitting when there is no requirement of creating a new surface. Whether it is municipal curbs or inside stair landings, the Surface Applied tactile solutions help to warn individuals as they reach an unsafe edge or help guide them along a safe path.
Here are some of the features of tactile “glued” to the existent surface:
Access Tiles Surface Applied Directional Wayfinding Tiles (Directional Bar Tiles) are specifically designed to work in unison with truncated attention dome tiles. These Canadian accessibility code compliant wayfinding bars are designed to lead the public between spaces and follow the desired path safely. These (TWSI) tactile walking surface indicators use a series of bar shaped tactile surfaces creating a detectable path. These paths are created with truncated attention dome tiles to indicate where the path begins, ends or splits so the visually impaired can orient themselves to follow their desired path. Access Tile detectable directional warning pad is cost effective, light weight and extremely durable used with truncated attention dome tiles to create fully accessible pathways around any pace and to alert pedestrians of a paths end. Access Tile Direction Wayfinding bars are offered in Replaceable Cast in Place tiles and Surface Applied Tiles.
Armor-Tile Surface Applied takes pride in being the leading manufacturer for tactile walking surface indicator systems. The Armor-Tile Surface Applied truncated domes are a diamond-hard vitrified polymer composite setting the benchmark for durability and detectability in tactile systems. The Armor-Tile surface applied tiles provide a cost-effective method for retrofitting existing sidewalks. These surface applied tiles are available in 10 different colours creating clear boundaries to ensure separation and safety for pedestrian’s route from vehicular traffic or other potentially hazardous obstacles. The tactile walking surface indicators (TWSI) can be used for a variety applications including curb ramps, escalator approaches, parking areas, transit platforms, top of stair landings/wheelchair ramps, multimodal transit stations, pedestrian crossings and vehicular passage ways. Armor-Tile surface applied products are in full compliance with Canadian accessibility codes AODA, CSA, ISO, provincial and national building codes (ontarios tactile walking surface indicators).
Access Tile Surface Applied Domes are the industry leader in affordable detectable warning tiles perfect for any retrofit job. The tactile walking surface indicators (TWSI) are slip resistant, corrosion resistant, abrasion resistance ensuring all truncated domes are durable against wear and tear maximizing the longevity of the detectable warning pads. The Surface Applied truncated attention domes can be applied in many situations including: multimodal transit stations, curb ramps, accessible pedestrian crossings, parking areas, tops and bottoms of stair landings, escalator approaches and many more to warn the public when they have reached an unsafe edge. The Tactile attention domes are especially useful for those with visual impairments as they can be felt through footwear, as well as designed with unique sound reflection for those with guidance canes to safely differentiate between Access Tile surface applied tile and concrete allowing for safe and detectable navigation of curb endings. Access Tile Surface applied truncated attention domes are available in 8 different colours to provide visual contrast warning the public when they have reached an unsafe edge
