The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) defines a ‘trip hazard’ as any vertical change of over 1/4 inch or more at any joint or crack. Since the ADA demands strict compliance, trip hazards represent a legal liability to our clients. Cities, school districts, hospitals, private communities, shopping malls, universities, apartment complexes, and other property owners are all extremely concerned with this liability.
Our patented saw-cutting technology completely and cleanly removes trip hazards from sidewalks, virtually eliminating claims that result from trips and falls on uneven sidewalk. By having Precision Sidewalk Safety remove their trip hazards, our clients reduce their legal liability using the most efficient and cost effective method available.
Our service, unlike other approaches, accurately measures each offset to ensure that we achieve the slope requested by our customers. The only alternative available to achieve ADA compliance (if done correctly) is demolition and replacement, which is costly, disruptive, and time consuming.
