What Are Radius Tactile Panels and Why Are They Helpful?

Radius Tactile panels are detectable warning systems placed on walkways to alert the visually impaired and anyone walking on the path of changes. These panels are compression molded and made of a fiberglass-reinforced plastic material for enhanced durability.

They are typically found on sidewalk curb ramps, at constructions sites, train stations, and other busy intersections. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act, these warning systems serve as stop signs for the visually impaired. In today's world, with more people directing their attention to technological devices like smartphones, Radius Tactile panels can also serve as a warning signal to those without impairments. Our design and development team works diligently to ensure that we continue to meet the specifications of government agencies, municipalities, and contractors.

Incorporating These Systems Into Your New Construction 

Whether you are constructing a shopping center or installing a sidewalk at a busy intersection, our tactile surfaces are a necessary component. All of our truncated dome Radius Tactile panels are in full compliance with the American Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines, Public Right-of-Way, and California Title 24 requirements.

You can incorporate our Tactile Systems into your new construction by ensuring that they are strategically placed near steps and ramps and on the edges of every raised platform. Our panels can be quickly replaced in less than six minutes, you can easily make adjustments or replacements during the construction process. They can also be used to retrofit over an existing concrete substrate and installed in as little as 10 minutes.

Installation Procedure:

  1. The physical characteristics of the concrete shall be as specified in the contract documents while maintaining a slump range of 4-7 inches to permit the solid placement of the ADA Cast-In-Place Replaceable  Tactile Unit (ADAREP) in the wet cement.
  2. The concrete shall be poured and finished level, true and smooth to the required dimensions prior to the placement of the ADAREP unit.
  3. Place the ADAREP unit 6-8 inches from the curb line. Working in a grid pattern, tamp the ADAREP unit into the wet concrete using a rubber mallet and a piece of wood. Continue this process until all of the air has been released, and the ADAREP unit surface is flush with the surrounding area. IMPORTANT: Avoid striking the surface of the ADAREP unit  directly
  4. Following the placement, the ADAREP unit  elevation  should  be  checked  to the adjacent surface with a straight edge. The ADAREP  unit elevation should   be  consistent  with  the  Contract  Drawings  and  Specifications.  Any  required adjustments must be made prior to the time when the concrete begins to set.
  5. IMPORTANT NOTICE TO INSTALLER: To allow for expansion and contraction, after tile is installed, use a 1/4in. finish edge trowel around entire perimeter. On a continous run, be sure to space each unit 1/8in. apart.
  6.  When you are confident that the ADAREP unit is in place and no further adjust- ments are needed, place a cinder block on both ends to hold the ADAREP unit in place while the concrete sets.
  7. During and after the ADAREP unit installation, as well as the concrete curing stage, no walking or external forces can be placed on the ADAREP unit. The area must be protected from pedestrian traffic until concrete is cured. The ADAREP Warning Surface will be ready for pedestrian traffic within 2-4 hours
  8. Be sure to remove plastic protective covering from the face of the ADAREP  Unit once the concrete is cured.

Not recommended or warrantied for asphalt  installation.
