Detectable Warning Systems™ (DWS) has engineered and developed its groundbreaking AlertCast PAVER in response to air entrapment issues stemming from traditional ribbed paver designs. The AlertCast PAVER represents the most innovative paver in the field today, delivering minimal aggregate displacement by combining four side-flange vents and PENETRATOR® anchors which allow for easy and solid installations.

Now a part of the proprietary product family of Mar-Bal, Inc. (Mar-Bal: Chagrin Falls, OH), DWS has been providing quality detectable warnings for over 28 years. Whereas the rib designs of traditional pavers run center-to-center (north-to-south), AlertCast PAVER’s design features four side-flange vents running right-to-left (east-to-west). The key to this design is to provide minimal air entrapment between the paver and concrete, ultimately resulting in an easier and quicker installation.

 Made in the USA, the AlertCast PAVER is a glass reinforced thermoset composite detectable warning panel engineered for superior impact resistance, slip resistance, wear resistance, and long-term durability featuring truncated domes molded to ADAAG in-line dome spacing specifications. The panels can be used in a wide range of publicly accessible environments including pedestrian crossings, railway platforms, and ADA curb ramps, among others. DWS possesses one of the industry’s most complete line of ADAAG and DOT compliant tactile warning products.

The addition of DWS’ new AlertCast PAVER further expands their portfolio of detectable warnings, offering a superior and installer friendly paver backed by a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty. AlertCast PAVER Profile: MAR-BAL, INC. / DWS CONTACT Anthony Lignetta / Director, Proprietary Products 440.813-5942 EDITORIAL CONTACT Ray Farrar / Method Media LLC 216.861.0862 / FOUR SIDE-FLANGE VENTS: The unique perimeter flanges are designed to eliminate air pockets underneath the panel.

Each vent runs eastto-west specifically engineered to prevent air pockets. Ultimately, the flange vents prevent trapped air to ensure a solid and easy installation. PENETRATOR® ANCHORING SYSTEM: The patented (Patent No. D634860) PENETRATOR® anchoring system locks the panel securely into the concrete with minimal aggregate displacement. It is a simple press-andplace installation system that delivers maximum holding capabilities with the best psi pulldown strength (on each anchor) available in the industry. All panels are shipped with PENETRATOR® anchors installed, and a protective covering to ensure the panel remains clean during installation.

Additionally, installation instructions are attached to every panel (written in English and Spanish). EASE-OF-INSTALLATION: Whereas most standard paver versions on the market require a counterweight to hold the panels down until they are set, AlertCast PAVER’s combination of anchors and side-flange vents help eliminate this step. Ease of installation means less issues for workers and the ability to install more panels per day. AlertCast PAVER

Conclusion: Devised in accordance with all applicable local and federal safety regulations, such as Public Right-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG) and Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG), AlertCast PAVER represents a revolutionary solution to the old problem of air entrapment in detectable warning paver safety panels.

According to DWS National Sales Manager Joe Dunnigan, “AlertCast PAVER is a uniquely new design style on the market that replaces the old rib design with the patented perimeter flange and PENETRATOR® configuration.” Anthony Lignetta, Mar-Bal’s Director, Proprietary Products added, “Our engineering team has developed a paver superior to any alternative on the market. Ultimately, the AlertCast PAVER’s side-flange vents are a groundbreaking design that results in minimal air entrapment and provides an easier installation experience.”
