Self-Adhesive Flexible Cement ADA Mats— Game Changing New Technology Available from ADA Sign Depot
San Diego, CA, April 12, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- ADA Sign Depot announced immediate availability of ADA Compliant and California Compliant Truncated Domes made using a game changing powerful “peel-and-stick” adhesive backing on fiber-reinforced, polymer-modified flexible cement mats. Made in California, these ADA Mats come in yellow and 5 more standard colors, and a range of sizes. ADA Sign Depot is offering these new products to contractors, cities, property managers, corporate and individual buyers with no minimum purchase required. Self-adhesive ADA mats can be ordered 24/7 through its secure ecommerce website, ADASignDepot.com.
“The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) has required use of truncated dome detectible warnings since 2001,” explained David Boyne, sales manager at ADA Sign Depot, San Diego. “But small business owners, property managers, and contractors have a tough time finding reputable sources of truncated dome pads that do not require large minimum orders. In addition, not everyone is equipped with the tools and experience to mount paving tiles that require drilling into concrete to install anchoring bolts, and applying adhesives to rigid tiles in the field. Not to mention that most standard surface or retrofit paving tiles will not adhere to asphalt, only to concrete. Yet most parking lots are asphalt, not concrete surfaces.”
With its nation-wide ecommerce internet store already providing ADA compliant signs and related products to contractors, small businesses and property managers, ADA Sign Depot now provides these easy to install truncated dome pads directly to its customers. “Even if all you need for your project is one ADA mat, we’ll ship it that day or the next business day,” Boyne explained. “We provide enough volume to larger customers like cities and new construction projects that we can eliminate minimum orders for mom and pop stores and small businesses or property managers, and contractors,” Boyne said.
“We carry standard truncated dome pads and tiles for installation on both wet or dry concrete. But these new self-adhesive ADA mats are easy and fast for one person to install without special tools or experience. If you can put a stamp on an envelope or apply a band-aid to a cut, you can apply these ADA compliant mats. You just brush off the concrete or asphalt surface, lay down the pad, and press it down. With its powerful self-adhesive backing and durable yet flexible reinforced cement composition, it forms a bond with the surface these pads are going to last far beyond their five-year guarantee. That's why we use this same new self-stick technology on Wheelchair Symbols that are applied to asphalt or concrete in parking lots to indicate parking stalls that are handicap accessible.”
As well as their new self-adhering ADA mats, ADA Sign Depot also carries truncated domes suitable for surface application on dry concrete using anchor bolts and adhesive, as well as cast-in-place dome pads installed when fresh concrete is being poured. “We want to provide every option, so contractors, business owners and property mangers can make the call on which product will work best for their situation. New construction can use the cast-in-place pads,” Boyne explained. “And the surface applied, retro-fit style mats allow a small business, contractor or property manger to install ADA required truncated domes without having to demolish and remove concrete, then pour fresh concrete. But I have to say, these self-adhesive ADA mats, because one person can install them in just minutes, without drilling, or tools or hardware, or a boatload of previous experience—and not having to close off their sidewalks or parking lots for several hours—they’re a game changer. The power-bonding adhesive on these mats allows them to be applied to asphalt as well as concrete, and that’s a big advance. Most parking lots are asphalt, not concrete. Wheelchair ramps are wood or metal or plastic. These self-adhesive truncated domes will bond to those surfaces, no problem.”
