ADA FLOORING SOLUTION

ADA Compliant Resurfacing Solution

Safety Floor Resurfacing 

SEMCO ADA Safety Floor is the result of more than a decade of research and testing. The ADA Safety floor surface solution is designed to be used in applications that require compliance with ADA requirements in Surface Aperture Closure, Surface Slope Regrading, and Coefficient of Friction.

 

COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION FOR ADA FLOORING COMPLIANCE

SEMCO’S ADA Flooring surface solution is designed to with ADA surface compliance in mind. SEMCO ADA Flooring meets and exceeds all ADA coefficient of friction requirements.

SLIP AND FALL RISK REDUCTION

Slip resistant flooring is an important element of ensuring a public access floor is compliant with ADA regulations. Currently a floor must have a minimum coefficient of friction (COF) of 0.60 for standard flat flooring, where sloped or ramped surfaces exceeding a 2% slope requires a 0.80 COF. Utilizing the SEMCO ADA Safety Floor with Remodel without Removal™ ADA compliant flooring can be created on any solid flooring product. The SEMCO ADA Safety Floor provides a slip resistant floor that can be used for standard flooring or ramped surfaces. The SEMCO ADA Safety Floor maintains the same dry slip resistance when wet.

SURFACE SLOPE REGRADING FOR ADA COMPLIANCE

REGRADING WITHOUT THE NEED FOR DEMOLITION OF EXISTING SURFACE

To be in compliance with ADA regulations, a public access floor must not exceed a slope of 2%. A common area floor that has sloping exceeding 2% must be addressed as a ramp, which will require flooring rated no less than 0.80 COF. The SEMCO ADA Safety Floor is applicable from as thin as 1/32” to 6”. With the SEMCO ADA Safety Floor a floor slope can be adjusted without extensive demolition or removal of existing flooring.

SURFACE APERTURE CLOSURE FOR ADA COMPLIANCE

MEET SUB-SURFACE MOVEMENT AND ADA REQUIREMENTS

Public access flooring that has drains, grout lines, to control joints, must not have any apertures exceeding 1/4”. A specific concern is control joints, concrete control joints are specifically designed to control concrete cracking, and it is very common for a control joint to easily exceed an aperture of 1/4”. SEMCO ADA Safety Floor can resolve this situation. Having a strength reaching up to 10,000 PSI, the SEMCO ADA Safety Floor can fill an aperture while still maintaining floor strength and integrity.

  • Figures include annual maintenance cost estimates
  • Labor costs are calculated at non-union pricing. For union pricing increase each figure by 20-30%

ADVANTAGES OF USING ADA SAFETY SURFACE

  • SEMCO ADA Safety Floor has a 5-year manufacturer limited warranty.
  • Initial cost of the SEMCO ADA Safety Floor is 68% less expensive than MMA (Quartz) Flooring.
  • The initial cost comparison between SEMCO and cool deck is very comparable, at the 5-year benchmark cool deck must be reinstalled ultimately increasing its long term cost.
