Detectable Warning Systems™ (DWS), which offers complete line of ADA-compliant tactile warning products for visually impaired or handicapped pedestrians, is featuring the original RediMat™ — constructed of extremely durable, UV protected, glass-filled polyurethane and is surface applied on both asphalt and concrete.

Now a part of the proprietary product family of Mar-Bal Inc. DWS has advanced the innovative, flexible RediMat’s proprietary pre-applied adhesive system, ensuring quick installation (less than 10 minutes) and drastically reduces labor time and expense.

Complimenting DWS’s complete construction and safety portfolio, RediMat’s proprietary formula is a flexible, UV treated composite comprised of the following specifications:

  • Dome Spacing: 2.35 inches Inline Slip Resistance: .90
  • Compressive Strength: 30,000 psi Sizes From: 2-feet x 3-feet to 3-feet x 5-feet and 10-foot radius wedge
  • Taber Abrasion: (1000gms/1000 cycles) 150 mgs Hardness: 90 (Shore A)

Notably, RediMat’s flexible polyurethane material conforms to uneven surfaces, and is unbreakable — it will not chip, crack, or splinter. Engineered construction also features a beveled edge for easy pedestrian access.

Radius tile is available in a “wedge” shape ideal for rounded intersections requiring a radius system. Directional mats are also available and popular for applications along bike paths and train stations — directing pedestrians to the train itself. Available colors (integral throughout) include: Safety Yellow, Brick Red, Black, and Gray.
