Get ADA compliant with surface-applied tactile Redimat meshes

By Jenny LescohierJune 27, 2022

Constructed of UV-protected, mesh-reinforced polyurethane material, the flexible RediMat is applied on a variety of surfaces (including both asphalt and concrete)

ADA compliance can be complicated but is of the utmost importance, especially on public job sites where visually impaired individuals might be bystanders.

Detectable Warning Systems (DWS) developed the original RediMat in 1994 as the forebearer of its line of ADA-compliant tactile warning products for visually impaired pedestrians.

Now a part of the proprietary product family of Mar-Bal Inc., DWS has advanced the flexible RediMats to include mesh reinforcement for added strength and increased durability.

This ‘next-level’ addition of adding engineered mesh strengthens its advanced properties ensuring a secure installation with longer-term durability.

Constructed of UV-protected, mesh-reinforced polyurethane material, the flexible RediMat is applied on a variety of surfaces (including both asphalt and concrete) and features a proprietary, pre-applied, peel-and-stick technology adhesive system.

This flexible system is designed to go down easily, installing in less than five minutes with no drilling required for traditional projects. Ultimately, the advanced RediMat cuts the installation time in half, reducing labor time and expense, according to DWS.

The glass-reinforced polyurethane RediMat is also unbreakable as it will not chip, crack or splinter. This material also conforms to uneven surfaces, making it suitable for numerous applications including: parking structures, concrete sidewalks, asphalt parking areas, garages and more.
