Shared Cycle Track Surface Mounted Tactile Paving

Used in conjunction with a segregated shared cycle track/footway to advise visually impaired people of the correct side to enter.

Used in conjunction with a segregated shared cycle track/footway to advise visually impaired people of the correct side to enter.

The purpose of the tactile surface used in conjunction with a segregated shared cycle track/footway is to advise visually impaired people of the correct side to enter.

The surface is used wherever a shared route begins, ends or crosses a carriageway. The tile ribs are used to identify the correct side of the route to enter, ensuring the safe segregation from cyclists.

Between the two routes is a central delineator strip (raised profile white line) that can be read by foot or cane. The strip runs along the entire shared route between cycle way and footpath.

The profile of the tactile surface comprises a series of raised, flat-topped bars, each 5mm high, 30mm wide, and spaced 70mm apart.

The central delineator strip (white finish) is 12-20mm high, 150mm wide with sloping sides and a flat top of 50mm.

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.
