The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) developed an ADA curb ramp design guidance document, written by the District ADA Coordinator for safety on public access areas. PennDOT’s ADA policy on installing curb ramps has been approved by the Federal Highway Administration and the U.S. Access Board. To ensure your curb ramps fall within these guidelines set by the ADA follow the checklist provided below.
If your ramp meets the requirement below, it conforms to the ADA guidelines:
SlipNOT® manufactures a slip resistant ADA ramp that meets all of the requirements above, exceeding coefficient of friction standards. SlipNOT® also manufactures manhole covers, access hatches, bridge plates, bicycle friendly lanes, drain grates, inlets and other safety products for public right-of-ways. SlipNOT® products provide a permanent solution to traditional products, such as bare diamond plate, that wear easily. Cast iron products can also be sent to SlipNOT® to have the slip resistant coating applied for instant safety. Galvanized steel is the ideal surface for exterior applications to prevent rust and corrosion. SlipNOT® reduces liability, cities such as Los Angeles specifies SlipNOT® for all pedestrian right-of-way applications.
