The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 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, churches, shopping malls, universities, apartment complexes, and other large buildings are all extremely concerned with this liability.
When lifting and leveling concrete with polyurethane foam, trip hazards are completely and cleanly removed from sidewalks, virtually eliminating claims that result from trips and falls on uneven sidewalk. By having Concrete Corrections remove their trip hazards, our clients reduce their legal liability using the most efficient and cost effective method available.
The only alternative available to achieve ADA compliance is removal and replacement, which is Costly, Disruptive, and Time Consuming.
