2' x 3' Retrofit ADA Pads for surface application.
Please note: These items can only ship ground or freight, and cannot be expedited due HAZMAT labeling requirements on the glue (the adhesive included is considered hazardous for shipping purposes.)
Ultra® ADA Mats come in four colors and are designed for the visually impaired to feel the raised, truncated domes with their feet. This, in combination with the tapping cane, can alert them to a different surface than the surrounding concrete sidewalk and an upcoming intersection. This Retrofit ADA pad features flexible construction that fits slopes and inclines in sidewalks and walkways. Urethane material offers better impact resistance and slip resistance than composites. These unbreakable and flexible urethane pads come with everything you need to quickly and easily install them as a retrofit using adhesive and anchors (included.)

ADA Pads - Truncated Dome Systems/ Detectable Warning Tiles for Sidewalks
Complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) : Provide tactile warning surfaces which comply with the detectable warnings on walking surfaces section of the Americans with Disabilities Act - Title 49 CFR TRANSPORTATION, Part 37.9 STANDARDS FOR ACCESSIBLE TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES, Appendix A, Section 4.29.2 DETECTABLE WARNINGS ON WALKING SURFACES
- Available in four (4) sizes: 2' x 2', 2' x 3', 2' x 4' and 2' x 5'.
- Safety yellow color assists people with severe visual impairment. Black, brick red and safety red also available.
- Flexible construction forms to fit dips, slopes and inclines in sidewalks and walkways.
- Ultra-ADA Pads are designed for the visually impaired to feel the raised, truncated domes with their feet. This, in combination with the tapping cane, can alert them to a different surface than the surrounding concrete sidewalk and an upcoming intersection.
- Installs quickly and easily using adhesive and anchors (included.)
- Better slip resistance than composites.
- Better impact resistance than composites.
- Dome Diameter x Height 0.9" x 0.02"
- Center to Center spacing 2.35"
Step 1) Pedestrian Safety: Create a barricade to pedestrian traffic so the Ultra-ADA Pads can be safely installed and allowed to cure two hours for green cure (cannot peel off) before allowing foot traffic on the installed product.
Step 2) Surface Preparation: Use a stiff bristle brush or broom to remove any dirt from the surface. Surfaces should be free from grease, oil, water/condensation, and other contaminants that may affect the sealing of the adhesive. We recommend you use a wire brush, grinding, sandblasting or other similar methods to remove contaminants if necessary. Any divot or depression larger than 1" in diameter should be repaired. Also, any crack/hole that could compromise the seal of adhesive around the perimeter of the pads should be repaired. If this is a newly poured concrete structure, make sure the concrete has cured for a minimum of 21 days. Product should be installed at temperatures between 40°F (4°C) to 100°F (38°C.)
Step 3) Template: Place the Ultra-ADA Pad(s) in the desired location. Using the Pad as a template, make a chalk outline on the ramp/sidewalk area. Surface Mount
Step 4) Applying Adhesive: Use supplied adhesive/sealant
- Flip the Pad over so the bottom is facing up in preparation for applying the adhesive.
- Cut the plastic tip to allow a 1/8"" bead to be applied. Remember to puncture the seal in the spout before placing in the caulking gun.
- Apply the adhesive around the perimeter of the Pad approximately 1/4" from the edge. It is CRITICAL that the bead be 100% complete (no gaps) as this bead will be sealing off water from getting under the Pad as well as sealing the perimeter to the sidewalk surface.
- Apply the adhesive every three inches in a cross pattern across the entire Pad. See diagram below) You should use approximately one and a quarter ounces of adhesive per square foot of Pad material.
Step 5) Placing the ADA Pad: Carefully turn-over the Pad in the pre-laid position. If you are placing two Pads together, run a bead of adhesive against one of the edges and then position the Pads as tightly together as possible. You can wipe off any excess adhesive using a rag dampened with MEK, Acetone, or other suitable solvents after the installation.
Step 6) Achieving Good Adhesive Contact: Using a 1 foot square section of 1/4" to 1/2" thick plywood, lay the plywood flat onto the truncated domes and begin applying pressure to the middle of the Pad, working towards the edges. Use the narrow edge of the plywood to apply pressure around the perimeter of the Pad. Some adhesive should "bubble out" around the edges. This forms a bead around the perimeter which seals against moisture. Make sure all parts of the Pad have made sufficient contact with the concrete to allow the adhesive to bond to both the Pad and the concrete.
Step 7) Anchoring: The supplied concrete anchors are to be installed in the recessed domes. After the ADA Pads have been installed and the adhesive has set, using a 1/4" masonry (carbide tipped) bit, drill 2 1/2 - 3" through the recessed domes and into the concrete. Place the anchors into the holes and tap them in with a hammer. (Note: installing the anchors is a two-step process: First tap in the plastic anchors followed by the metal nail.) Tap in until anchors are flush with surface.
ADA Accessibility Guidelines for Buildings and Facilities (ADAAG)
- Detectable warnings are required at any intersection or ?hazardous vehicular area?. These areas are defined as follows:
- a walk that crosses or adjoins a vehicular way and,
- with walking surfaces not separated by curbs, railings, or other elements between the pedestrian areas and vehicular areas.
- Detectable warnings are also required at the edges of reflecting pools if not protected by railings, walls or curbs.
- Future requirements will include hazardous areas and stairways.
B. WHO MUST COMPLY?
- Any property owner or municipality that has an area as described above. Sidewalks, crosswalks and other walking surfaces that were installed before July 26, 2001 are not subject to the requirements.
C. WHAT ACTIONS ARE NECESSARY FOR COMPLIANCE?
- Detectable warnings that are installed must meet the following requirements.
- They shall consist of raised truncated domes with a diameter of nominal 0.9 in (23 mm) , a height of nominal 0.2 in (5 mm) and a center-to-center spacing of nominal 2.35 in (60 mm.)
- They shall contrast visually with adjoining surfaces, either light-on-dark, or dark-on-light. The material used to provide contrast should contrast by at least 70%.
- The material used to provide contrast shall be an integral part of the walking surface.
- Detectable warnings used on interior surfaces shall differ from adjoining walking surfaces in resiliency or sound-on-cane contact.
