Patent No. US D691,743 S

Tuftile’s Polymer Surface Applied Tiles are replaceable high-impact detectable warning tiles designed for years of use on municipal (public) and private sidewalks, pedestrian ramps and platforms. Polymer Surface Applied anchors hold tight to stainless steel, tamper resistant fasteners and are easily installed into existing concrete or retrofitting installations. Alternatively, drive pins can be used in most installations.

Tuftile Polymer Tiles are made of advanced proprietary polymers and are engineered with molded in-line truncated domes which are in full compliance with ADA guidelines and provide superior impact and slip resistance. Tuftiles are also highly resistant to UV rays, weather, and a wide variety of chemicals.

All TufTile Polymer Tiles are:

  • ADA compliant for wet and dry, slip-resistant surface
  • Easy and fast installation, bilingual step-by-step installation instructions
  • Beveled edges meets “trip hazard” requirements
  • Replaceable
  • Long term durability
  • Recyclable
  • Made in USA

Surface Applied Fastening System/Accessories

  • 1-1/2" tamper-resistant stainless steel #14 screws secure each anchor to the tile

  • Polymer Surface-Applied anchors hold tight to stainless steel

  • Optional Anchor Drive Pins are available, depending on location and installation regulations.
  • Weather resistant TufTile SA sealant is applied to the back

  • 1/4" Carbide tip drill bits are provided with TufTile SA tiles so that anchor holes may be drilled into the concrete

Surface Applied Labeled Instructions

  • English and Spanish installation instructions attached to each tile

  • Easy to follow step-by-step directions


Surface Applied Beveled Edges

  • Smooth transition between the TufTile and other surfaces

  • Meets ADA requirements

Dome Layout

  • In-Line truncated domes comply with all ADA specifications

  • North-South & East-West spacing is 2.35"

  • The TufTile name is molded into every part identifying us as the manufacturer for future reference

  • When installing multiple TufTiles maintain a 3/32" gap between them. TufTile remain ADA compliant when tiles are properly installed.


  • TufTiles are replaceable. Replacement is an economic alternative to concrete replacement

  • Anchor holes and panel depth is uniform between products. TufTile Wet-Set tiles and Surface-Applied are designed to last for years in normal wear & tear, urban environments. We recognize that abnormal things can happen and at times tiles may need to be replaced. The fact that TufTiles are replaceable offers a community or private property owner a longer life-cycle cost savings vs a concrete tear-out and re-pour.
