  • Range of options available - Highways (Controlled and Uncontrolled Crossing Points), Rail and LRT areas (Platforms Edge Warning Surface) and the Built Environment (Hazard Warnings Corduroy Surface).

  • Lightweight and easy to transport.

  • Hard wearing and durable - made from a hard wearing stone and resin composite.

  • Anti slip - tested using the pendulum test, our tactiles achieved a PTV of 65 in dry conditions.

How To Apply

 

Surface Preparation

  • Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from loose and friable material. Any “dished” or damaged surface areas should be patch repaired to provide a reasonably flat and consistent surface.

  • Dry fit all Surface Mounted Tactile tiles to ensure they fit freely and that they sit flat down on the surface.

  • If required, cut to shape prior to applying the adhesive using a 115mm angle grinder fitted with an abrasive or diamond cutting disc. Please ensure that goggles and gloves are worn at all times when any form of cutting is involved.

 

Mixing the Adhesive

  • When mixing the adhesive, add the liquid hardener to the base material and mix thoroughly using an electric drill fitted with a mixing paddle paying particular attention to the edges and base of the tub. NOTE mixing by hand with a stick will not achieve the consolidation required.

  • Once mixed the adhesive will start to cure in the tub within a few minutes by removing mix from the tub and spreading over the work site a longer working time can be achieved. [depending on ambient temperature this could be between 30 minutes to 2 hours]./p>

 

Application

  • Begin by laying the tiles in the required format and position on site.

  • Apply the mixed adhesive to the prepared surface using a serrated float, keeping within the duck tape boundary but tight to all edges. A standard pack of adhesive contains 3.5 litres [equal to 2.2mm @ 1.6 m² - [1 standard box of tiles].

  • Apply tiles to adhesive by slightly rolling from one edge making sure that no air is trapped beneath. Use a wheel/roller working from the centre of the tile out. Press gently over the entire surface to thoroughly bed in the tile paying particular attention to corners and edges.

  • To finish the joints, kiln dried sand, the same colour as the tiles can be applied while the adhesive is still wet and swept off when full curing has occurred. To remove any excess adhesive allow to skin over then remove with a scraper. A small amount of white spirit can then be used to wipe away any residue. Duct tape should be removed once the adhesive has started to skin over.

Please note: you MUST use the epoxy adhesive provided to apply the tactiles. Other adhesives will not achieve the desired result.

Specifications

  • All panels sizes are 400mm x 400mm as standard.

  • Suitable for most standard surfaces including asphalt, wood, concrete, steel and ceramic with no surface excavation required.

 

Controlled and Uncontrolled Crossing Tactiles

  • The purpose of these blister surface tactiles is to provide a warning to differentiate between where a footway ends, and where a carriageway begins.

  • Red should be used at Controlled Crossings Only and Stone should be used at Uncontrolled Crossings Only.

  • Controlled Applications (On-street): Zebras – Pelicans – Puffins – Toucans – Traffic signals with pedestrian phases.

  • Uncontrolled Applications (On-street): Side road crossings – Busy crossovers (vehicle crossings) – Crossings away from junctions – Kerb to kerb flat road humps – Signal controlled junctions without pedestrian phases (traffic lights)

 

Corduroy Tactile

  • The purpose of the corduroy surface is to provide a warning to the presence of hazards, such as stairs, level crossings or the approach to on-street light rapid transit (LRT) platforms. Consisting of rows of parallel half-round bars, it conveys the message “hazard, proceed with caution”.

  • Applications: Tops and bottom of stairs – Foot of a ramp to an on-street rapid transit (LRT) platform, but not at any other ramps – Level crossing – Where a footway/footpath joins a shared route.

 

Rail Platform Edge Tactile

  • This design has flat topped domes set in evenly spaced rows parallel to the direction of travel along the platform. The offset of the domes indicates the direction of travel to the train. Used adjacent to safe carriageway crossings, the surface can be any colour other than red, but should provide a good contrast with the surrounding area to assist partially sighted people.

  • Applications: Railway Platforms

 

LRT Platform Edge Tactile

  • The purpose of the on-street surface is to raise awareness for visually impaired people that are nearing the edge of an on-street LRT platform. The profile of this warning surface consists of rows of ‘Lozenge’ shapes.

  • Applications: Light Rail Transit Platforms
