Product Details

Viztek Ltd’s Guidance Path Surface Tactiles purpose is to guide visually impaired people along a route when the traditional cues, such as a property line or kerb edge, are not available. It can also be used to guide people around obstacles, for example: street furniture in a pedestrianised area. The surface has been designed so that people can be guided along the route either by walking on the tactile surface or by maintaining contact with a long cane. To maximise its effectiveness the surface should be used sparingly and only after local consultation with relevant groups. It is recommended that the guidance path be in a contrasting colour to the surrounding area so as to assist partially sighted people. It should not be red which is restricted to the blister surface at a controlled crossing.

Testing

Viztek Ltd Tactiles undergo a stringent QC process to ensure consistent colour and thickness throughout. Our tactiles also far outperform the required DfT standards of PTV (Pendulum Test Values) and SRV (Slip Resistance Values) and are second to none as far as providing the highest level of slip resistance as “Pedestrian Safety is Paramount”. We not only test the slip resistance in-house but also arranged for independent testing too for further clarification.

Installation

Viztek Ltd Tactiles can be installed onto almost any given substrate i.e. concrete / tarmac / mastic asphalt / GRP / Steel. Particular attention needs to be paid when installing onto freshly laid tarmac due to flux oils being present. The tactiles are also flexible enough to cope with any minor substrate deviations and are therefore ideal for the majority of station platforms throughout the UK. Our tactiles are installed using a high quality EP (Epoxy Resin) Adhesive that is Moisture Tolerant and provides an excellent bond.

Approved Application

“Correct Application is Key” which is why Viztek Ltd can offer to Supply & Install / Offer In-House Training Demo’s / Supply Installation Guides and as much technical support as is needed to ensure that the system is installed correctly and lasts for as long as possible.
