Tactile walking surface indicators (TWSI) are installed in a variety of areas of public life. These truncated domes tiles act as a non-visual warning, or clue, of an upcoming change in the pathway or potential hazards. Comfortably felt underfoot through shoes, truncated domes protrude out of the walkway surface just enough to provide a path marking clue without creating a tripping hazard.
Truncated dome tiles are installed to allow persons with visual impairments to safely navigate through public spaces unaided. In order to keep public spaces safe for all persons, TWSIs are commonly installed in areas that could pose potential dangers, such as pedestrian crosswalks, stair landings, elevator approaches and transit platforms.
Armor-Tile® is the world leader in providing code compliant tactile walking surface indicators and truncated domes fit for all transit applications. Armor-Tile® proudly offers Canada the largest selection of fully AODA, CSA, ISO and OBC compliant detectable warning tactile systems for transit platform and multi-modal transit centers.
Each of our expertly engineered truncated dome tiles are rigorously tested to ensure they exceed code compliance and are impact and wear resistant, weathering, burn and chemical resistant, and feature detectability and slip resistance.
Our truncated dome products offer an exceptional wear resistance factor, meaning a longer tile life and ultimately more cost-effective option than other TWSI products on the market. Test after test, our transit tiles exceed the most stringent requirements.
Armor-Tile® truncated dome tiles are manufactured using a diamond-hard vitrified polymer composite, which lends to their extreme durability and impressive lifespan. The durability of our TWSI tiles make them the perfect choice for all transit applications.
To best meet the needs of your project, we offer a range of Armor-Tile® products.
Armor-Tile® Cast in Place detectable warning truncated dome tiles are manufactured using a diamond-hard vitrified polymer composite and are the perfect choice for all new projects. These truncate dome tiles easily install into wet-set concrete, ensuring a clean and easy installation – at a cost-effective price point.
Our cast in place TWSI tiles are available in a variety of sizes to meet the unique needs of your project and are lightweight and easy to handle.
Just like all our truncated dome tiles, Armor-Tile® Surface Applied tiles set the standard for weather and wear resistance, proving to be the most durable TWSI on the market. For any project you are looking to retrofit with truncated dome installations, choose our surface applied tiles. Available in an array of sizes, these lightweight and easy to handle tiles are a cinch to install!
Each of our surface applied truncated dome tiles are shipped with the required adhesive, sealant and fasteners to make your space more accessible. Armor-Tile®’s installation system ensures a secure and durable retrofitting installation.
Our Modular Paver truncated dome tiles are incredibly durable and long lasting. Manufactured using our diamond-hard vitrified polymer composite, this line of TWSI tiles are filled with a high strength polymeric concrete, making an exceptionally dense, durable and strong detectable warning tile. These warning pavers make an excellent choice for new projects in high-traffic areas, such as transit platforms and multi-modal transit stations.
The modular pave truncated dome tile is easily installed and can be laid on compacted fill or set in a grout bed or drypac. Armor-Tile® has made these truncated dome tiles available in two standard sizes.
Armor-Tile®’s Replaceable Herculite Transit Tiles set the standard for durability and detectability in tactile walking surface indicator products. These tiles are manufactured using a Herculite polymer composition coupled with a fiberglass reinforcement. This incredibly durable material creates an industry leading product for durability as well as weather and wear resistance. Not only is this product easy to install into wet-set concrete, but it also boasts our industry leading replicability feature. When it is time for maintenance or replacement it is incredibly easy to unscrew the top portion of the tile and screw a replacement truncated dome tile into the existing anchors. This unique replicability feature is great for transit platforms with heavy foot traffic.
At Comoldco, our specialization in thermoset compression molding of FRP plastics lends well to the manufacturing of truncated dome tiles, and allows us to continue making all areas of public life safer for everyone. Teaming up with leaders in accessibility, we work hard to provide our communities with tough, reliable, and, most importantly, safe tactile walking surface indicator products.
