Tactile Paving

We supply and install a range of surface mounted GRP tactile paving designed specifically to meet The Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions Guidance on the Use of Tactile Paving Surfaces.

Surface mounted GRP tactile paving systems offer significant advantages over traditionally used concrete materials in both longevity and cost of installation. They provide a fast, easy and economical solution to achieve compliance with the Equality Act 2010.

With no excavation required, installation of our surface mounted GRP tactile paving tiles takes a fraction of the time it would to lay concrete pavers and tests have shown the composite tactile paving tiles are significantly harder wearing, up to seven times. Crucially, as the GRP remains permanently flexible, therefore they are not subject to freeze-thaw fracturing and spalling.

WHY EVERGRIP Tactile Paving?

  • No excavation required, no disposal expenses
  • Tiles are light in weight and are easy to handle and cut, no hot works
  • No requirement for plant machinery and associated access issues and expense
  • Harder wearing than concrete
  • Will not crack like concrete, preventing future trip hazards, tile and adhesive permanently flexible

Blister Pedestrian Crossing Surface Mounted Tactile Paving

The blister surface of this tactile paving provides a warning to visually impaired people who would otherwise find it difficult to differentiate between where the footway ends and the carriageway begins.

The blister surface of this tactile paving provides a warning to visually impaired people who would otherwise, in the absence of a kerb upstand less than 25mm high, find it difficult to differentiate between where the footway ends and the carriageway begins. The surface is an essential safety feature for this group of road users at pedestrian crossing points, where the footway is flush with the carriageway.

OPTIONS

  • 400mm2 available in buff, charcoal, red, grey, hazard yellow
  • 450mm2 buff, charcoal, grey, red
  • Red units are used for controlled crossing points and buff units are used for uncontrolled crossing points.
  • Other colours

Applications include pedestrian crossings: controlled and uncontrolled, bus stops, traffic islands, car parks, kerbs and steps, changes of direction.

Can be fixed to asphalt, concrete, steel, wood & tiled surfaces using a choice of dedicated adhesive.

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.

  • Surface skid resistance measured: 61
  • Preferred range set by the Joint Mobility Unit of SRV = 50-70
  • The UK Slip Resistance Group guide to a floor for able-bodied pedestrians
  • Skid Resistance Value Potential for Slip
  • Above 65 – Extremely Low
  • 35 to 65 – Low
  • 25 to 35 – Moderate
  • 25 and below – High

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.

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.

Corduroy Surface Mounted Tactile Paving

Our corduroy tactile paving surface is used to warn visually impaired people of the presence of specific hazards.

Our corduroy tactile paving surface is used to warn visually impaired people of the presence of specific hazards; steps, level crossings or the approach to on street light rapid transport (LTR) platforms. It is also used where a footway joins a shared route, it conveys the messag hazard, proceed with caution.

Guidance Path Surface Mounted Tactile Paving

Guidance path surface guides visually impaired people along a route when the traditional cues, such as a property line or kerb edge, are not available.

Guidance path surface guides 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 effectiveness, the surface should be used sparingly and only after consultation with relevant local groups.

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.
