Now a part of the proprietary product family of Mar-Bal Inc., Detectable Warning Systems™ (DWS) is launching their AlertCast® and AlertTile® detectable warning products. The innovative ADA-compliant products are engineered for visually impaired or handicapped pedestrians — offering advanced rigid composite material solutions with “tactile cues” for either cast-in-place or surface applied construction and safety applications.
Known as “The One-Source Solutions Provider,” privately held Mar-Bal has three state-of-the-art U.S. manufacturing plants in Ohio, Virginia, and Missouri — producing everything entirely turnkey. The economical DWS products also feature ease-of-installation, consistent delivery, and excellent customer service.
Contractors, distributors, states, and municipalities all benefit from each product’s advanced engineering and commitment to innovation, as well as the benefits of composites for multiple markets, including healthcare, rail and passenger transportation, architecture, infrastructure, and universities.
The products include:
The AlertCast® Profile is a premium glass-reinforced thermoset, cast-in-place, rigid composite engineered for impact resistance, slip resistance, wear resistance, and long-term durability. Its exclusive lightweight design incorporates a panel of slip-resistant truncated domes designed to comply with ADA standards. Should the need arise, the tiles are also replaceable.
The AlertTile® Profile is a glass-reinforced thermoset composite engineered for impact resistance, slip resistance, wear resistance, and long-term durability for retrofit applications. The exclusive design of AlertTile incorporates a thin, slightly flexible profile with a perimeter beveled edge to provide a safe pedestrian transition.
