Regulation compliant for use near steps and crossings
Corduroy Version - Warns visually impaired people of the presence of hazards such as stairs or pedestrian crossings.
On Street Version - Indicates the edge of a footway near a crossing. Designed with 36 blisters in regular rows and columns on each tile, it helps prevent the visually impaired from inadvertantly walking into a vehicular route.
Off Street Version - The blisters on this tile run parallel in one direction, but are irregular in the other direction. This indicates that movement in one direction is safe, and is ideal for train or light rail platforms.
|Properties||Tough, virtually indestructible, rot resistant, the surface is coated with aluminium oxide grit for slip resistance and wear resistance, tiles are glued with Adhesive Mastic and screwed to the existing substrate to avoid costly excavation.|
Use Tile Red Tactile Plate for Controlled crossings, i.e.
Use Buff Tactile Plate for Uncontrolled crossings, i.e.
If appearance is critical we recommend the application of a small trial area first.
Watco Tactile Plates can be glued or screw fixed to the substrate. If the substrate is reasonably smooth and even, Watco GRP Polyurethane Adhesive can be used. The substrate should be clean and dry. A mechanical fixing is not generally required. If the substrate is uneven, Watco Adhesive Mastic can be used as a gap filling adhesive. When using Watco Adhesive Mastic we recommended that a screw fixing is made in each corner of each tile. The plate is easily drilled and any type of screw and Rawlplug fixing can be used which best suits the substrate. Watco Adhesive Mastic and screw fixings are recommended if the substrate is damp, very cold, contaminated or in generally poor condition.
