The Beach Trax Product
Beach Trax is an ADA compliant outdoor pathway system used to make terrain like sand, grass, gravel, and snow accessible for people with physical disabilities. Perfect for long-term installation at public beaches and parks, or as a temporary pathway at an event. Each sturdy square panel is 3 ft x 3 ft x 1/8 inch (91 x 91 x 0.32 cm) in size and only weighs 5.2 lbs (2.4 kg). Installation and maintenance is a breeze for staff. Because the accessible pathway solution is modular, you can move small sections as needed instead of the entire path. Connect panels with the removable, durable hinges to customize your pathway. For long-term installation, you can stake down the pathway corners. It has never been easier to make inclusion and accessibility a priority. Plus, you’ll meet beach/park event permitting requirements for ADA compliance where required.
See how Beach Trax works for the most visited National Park in America
Since 2019, the Golden Gate Recreational Area has used Beach Trax for their wheelchair accessible beach mat solutions at two popular beaches. The Golden Gate Recreational Area is part of the world-famous National Park Service. In fact, it is the most visited location of the whole 400+ park system! Beach Trax is installed at two locations within the area: Crissy Field East Beach and Rodeo Beach. Once you visit the Golden Gate Recreational Area, you’ll know first-hand how they take accessibility and inclusion to heart.
The Golden Gate Recreational Area trusts Beach Trax to provide a safe ADA compliant pathway over sand in their National Park so visitors who use mobility devices (wheelchairs, walkers, etc.) can enjoy more of their beautiful, pristine beaches. They have over 1,500 square feet of wheelchair accessible pathway! For routine maintenance, park staff simply sweep or use a leaf blower to clear sand off the pathway. Stakes are used during installation to keep the accessible beach pathway secure. When the sand needs to be periodically graded, staff can easily move the whole pathway or small sections at a time due to the durable removable hinges. During inclement weather/seasons, Beach Trax panels are easily folded and stacked in storage, taking up very little space. The simplicity and effectiveness of the Beach Trax accessible beach mat allows park rangers to focus on making their park the best it can be.
Checked out the Beach Trax beach mats in San Francisco at Crissy Field beach and they are fantastic!! These mats are very sturdy, they are bolted down into the sand and allow a wheelchair to go onto the beach! While there, I noticed people with kids’ strollers using them, too, so these mats serve more than just one group of visitors!
