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 or stick on tactile paving 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.
The Department for Transport and Building Regulations place requirements on local authorities and duty holders to provide tactile guidance/warning surfaces for visually impaired persons in public areas and access to buildings & transport facilities.

The full range of tiles is offered in a polyurethane resin/stone composite (incorporating recycled material). Blister Platform Edge Off-Street and Corduroy versions are also available in corrosion resistant GRP (incorporating refined aluminium oxide granules).
Both types display extreme durability & have a slip-resistant finish.

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.
This type of tactile paving is used to advise visually impaired people of the edge of all off-street railway platforms.
Our corduroy tactile paving surface is used to warn visually impaired people of the presence of specific hazards.
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.
Used in conjunction with a segregated shared cycle track/footway to advise visually impaired people of the correct side to enter.
