Viztek Ltd are fast becoming recognised as “The UK’s Leading Supplier of Surface Mounted Tactile Paving”. The Sunderland based company has seen huge growth with their turnover trebling year on year, and looks set to exceed more than that growth going into their 4th year of trading.
The success of the company has been underlined not only by their attention to detail, but by their constant and on-going development of new and innovative products, all of which have been well received in improving passenger safety throughout the UK’s Rail Network.
The company continues to win numerous awards for innovation and proves that they must be doing something right!
Network Rail worked hand in hand with the company in developing the “New & Unique Safety Feature” of their “Chamfered Edge Rail Blister Tactile Paving System”. This new and innovative system not only assists with reducing any potential tripping hazards (which is vital for a product so close to the platform edge), but also assists by way of vastly reducing installation times as there is no longer a requirement to add a separate edge fillet. Resulting in speedier installation times of 100lms per 4 hour working window, as well as offering an aesthetically pleasing solid band of colour along the platform edge.
Viztek have also developed a further innovation by way of the Chamfered Edge Hazard Corduroy Tactile Paving System, working hand in hand with Abellio Greater Anglia to improve passenger safety. A product again that is gaining specification across a growing number of routes.
Working hand in hand with their “Approved Applicators” TJ Civil Engineering, Viztek have successfully delivered 1000’s of linear metres to date;2016 has already seen a great start with 10 No. + station’s opting for our products and services over other competitors.
As well as the above, Viztek have also undertaken a number of Stair Tread Installation Projects and Tactile Indicator Projects.
