Lunch & Learn: Public Safety and Access Issues for Concrete Pavers
December 10th | 12:00 - 1:15 EST
This presentation reviews public safety and accessibility design considerations when selecting unit concrete pavers for walkway surfaces. Current ADA criteria, slip resistance standards and test methods, and latest developments related to a new roughness index for wheelchair vibration will be addressed. Other paver safety topics covered include: chamfer widths and ease of transition, visibility and color contrast, truncated dome requirements, permeable pavement surface openings, snowplowing, use of deicing chemicals, and traffic calming benefits.
- Participants will understand the key criteria for selecting concrete pavers for accessible walkway surfaces.
- Participants will be able to identify the latest standards and industry guidelines related to slip resistance for unit concrete pavers.
