What is a 'Trip Hazard' anyway?
The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Defines a 'trip hazard' as any vertical change ¼ of an inch or more at a joint or crack. This legal requirement is the basis for tens of thousands of lawsuits each year… paying out millions of dollars to those pedestrians injured by trip and fall accidents. Trip hazards pose a dangerous threat to individuals, as well as create an unpleasant look to the property.

Eliminating trip hazards by grinding is the fastest, most affordable and effective solution to eliminating liability issues for trip and fall accidents.
