TACTILE SURFACES

POLYDECK TACTILE SURFACES

GRIPFAST Corduroy Tactiles are usually located at the top and bottom of a flight of stairs and convey the message, ‘proceed with caution’. Polydeck provide an answer for safety concerns for those at risk of accident or injury.

Tactile Paving Slabs Compliant With Disability Regulations

GRIPFAST Corduroy Tactiles enable customers to comply with the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act and Part M of the Building Regulations which state that a stepped access will satisfy requirement M1 or M2 if ‘…a ‘corduroy’ hazard warning surface is provided at top and bottom landings of a series of flights to give advance warning of a change in level.’ The Tactiles are manufactured from a durable GRP (glass reinforced polyester) panel. The panel surface comprises rounded bars running transversely across the direction of pedestrian travel. The bars are 6mm high, 20mm wide and spaced 50mm from the centre of one bar to the centre of the next. Each bar contains a near-diamondhard aggregate which gives it an anti-slip surface profile and ensures a long life span. GRIPFAST Corduroy Tactiles can be supplied in an infinite number of colours and are suitable for use on timber, concrete, flat steel, tarmac and asphalt substrates. They are suitable for both internal and external use and are resistant to oil, grease and most chemicals. Enquiries concerning blister tactile surfacing are made by contacting Polydeck online.
