Business Model > American’s with Disabilities Act
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1991 defines a ‘trip hazard’ as any vertical change over 1/4 inch at any joint or crack in public sidewalks. Federal law requires the removal of all trip hazards from sidewalks, handicap ramps, and other pedestrian walks.
The ADA demands strict compliance, trip hazards must be removed or defaulters are held legally liable. Cities, school districts, hospitals, churches, shopping malls, universities, apartment complexes, and other large buildings are all extremely concerned with their liability.
PCC has little real competition. Few companies are able to compete with our ability to deliver ADA compliance. Also, since the PCC system is more efficient and has a much lower operating cost, competitors find it hard to compete with our price.
PCC has a number of patented technologies which help maintain a market leadership position.
