Building access codes (federal and state) impact all aspects of construction. Now more than ever disability access laws create a greater concern for the sport floor industry. Why? Because gym/sport floor modernization projects that have an increase in floor height of more than ½” from the original substrate require some form of transitional access from the path of travel to the new floor.
SafePath™ produces CourtEdge™ Reducers for almost every floor transition requirement from ½” up to 2-1/2” in standard models and custom heights exceeding 4-1/2”. These are available in hundreds of configurations pre-cut and fitted for immediate installation. Also, all transitions are available in various color selections with our new StoneCap™ coating technology.
Proper installation of raised wood floors, especially in retrofit and replacement projects, are problematic when faced with interpreting federal and state ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) access compliance laws. CourtEdge™ Reducers are designed to provide compliance for hundreds of sport floor vertical rise configurations.
Problems occur around the proper treatment these vertical rises from variations of the new flooring material to the existing or old floor substrate. Vertical floor edge treatment is not only required to avoid tripping hazards, but also essential for federal and state access code compliance.
Today’s flooring materials offer models with greater vertical height than those of the past because of high performance demands. Imagine a new floor system that has increased the entire height of a gymnasium floor by ½” to 4”! [Below are some examples of the many CourtEdge™ Reducer working drawings available]
Traditionally when there were small variations in height in new flooring projects, applying small floor reducers was left to the discretion of the flooring contractor or installer. Today there is more of a focus on code compliance that involves greater height variations for gym floor retro-fit and sports floor modernization projects.
SafePath™ Products has focused on this need and offers various product solutions that are easy to specify and install with the use of specially designed working drawings for hundreds of flooring configurations.
