At a Glance

With fully automated measurements, the CS8900 is a significant advancement for testing compliance with ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Access criteria for sidewalks. Eliminate random and time consuming measurements with manual tools like straightedges and digital levels. With the CS8900, users can add pictures and GPS positions to their sidewalk data, which can be exported in custom formats, including PDF and GIS.
