Blister Platform Edge Off Street Surface Mounted Tactile Paving

This type of tactile paving is used to advise visually impaired people of the edge of all off-street railway platforms.

This type of tactile paving is used to advise visually impaired people of the edge of all off-street railway platforms.

The blister surface can be read by foot or cane, warning of the approach to a rail platform edge. As the blister pattern is offset it can be used to identify the direction the platform edge is running and the correct direction of travel to access a train.

400mm2  & 400mm x 1200mm GRP option stocked in buff.

SPECIFICATION

The tiles are made from a hard wearing stone and resin composite, moulded to create paving which will outperform equivalent concrete product. Tests conducted at the Transport Research Laboratory on product conditioned at 40oC found no measurable loss in height at the end of a scuffing test.

Building Investigation and Testing Services (Redhill) conducted a comparative wear test against a concrete blister slab and found the tactile paving had a wear resistance 7 times greater than the equivalent concrete product.

Installation of the tactile surface system is both rapid & straightforward and is achieved using a colour matched, two-part adhesive. No excavation is ever required. Small surface irregularities can be covered with the adhesive to ensure no cavities are left beneath the tiles. The tiles can be easily cut to follow kerb lines or to accommodate ramps and drain covers. They naturally deform over cambered, curved areas.

For example, a typical installation to both sides of a controlled pedestrian crossing can be completed in less than 2 hours, reducing disruption to the public. Large areas e.g. railway platforms, can be achieved in overnight/possession times. The tactile surface system can be laid on concrete, tarmac and steel surfaces using either standard urethane adhesive or the moisture tolerant epoxy system.
