Detectable Guidance

Manufactured using our diamond-hard vitrified polymer composite Armor-Tile® Detectable Guidance Tiles provide the perfect tactile pathways for the visually impaired community across roadway pedestrian crossings – making it an ideal detectable warning strip as required by ADA guidelines.  

Armor-Tile®’s innovative design and incredible polymer composite has elevated this detectable warning strip into an industry leader in terms of durability, weather and wear resistance, and strength.

Our Detectable Guidance Tiles features Armor-Tile®’s lowest installation cost due to the integral embedment flanges complete anchoring system. As such, workers can easily install this detectable warning product at a competitive and cost-effective price, making our world more accessible one installation at a time.

Installed at less than ¼” above the adjacent surface for ideal detectability, our Detectable Guidance Tiles provide top-of-the-line accessibility while not being intrusive and seamlessly fitting into the surrounding space. This is the power of intelligent design and precision engineering.

Detectable Guidance Applications

Armor-Tile® tactile warning systems have been providing the visually impaired community with clear, detectable warnings of any change in surface conditions in both private and public spaces for years – making America a more accessible and inclusive country in the process. Armor-Tile® detectable guidance systems provide exactly the tactile, detectable warning required so the visually impaired community can have unimpeded access to the world.

Our Detectable Guidance Tiles’ wayfinding bars provide a feeling and audible sound starkly different than that of our truncated domes’, providing the clear message that these are directional tiles and not the detectable warning that truncated domes provide.

Armor-Tile® Detectable Guidance Tiles can be used for the following applications and many more:

  • ADA Curb Ramps
  • Pedestrian Crossings
  • Vehicular Passageways
  • Parking Areas
  • Escalator Approaches
  • Top of Stair Landings and Wheelchair Ramps
  • Transit Platforms
  • Multi Modal Transit Stations

ADA Compliance

Our incredible team designs Armor-Tile®’s tactile warning systems, truncated domes, and wayfinding bar tiles to be in full compliance of every ADA and state accessibility regulation. With tactile warning systems and ADA solutions that will fulfill all your accessibility needs, both internal and external, Armor-Tile® is your all in one location for making your project ADA compliant and accessible. On top of our stellar Detectable Guidance tactile pathway, we are proud to offer a full range of similar ADA solutions designed and produced for accessibility, safety, and ADA compliance. Help Armor-Tile® make the world more accessible.

Safe and Durable Detectable Guidance

Manufactured using our diamond-hard vitrified polymer composite and featuring a complete anchoring system armed with integral embedment flanges, the Armor-Tile® Detectable Guidance Tile is an incredibly dense, strong, and durable detectable warning surface that passes every required performance test with flying colors. These tests include the ASTM D695 for compressive strength, the ASTM D790 for flexural strength, and the AASHTO HS20-44 Wheel Load Tests – which requires our Detectable Guidance Tile to sustain 10,410 pounds.
