Description - GRP Tactiles

GRP Tactiles are 400mm x 400mm fibreglass tiles that  are designed to meet legislation that requires certain areas to have raised tactile areas on flooring in specific scenarios. The legislation is designed for blind or partially sighted people to be able to determine underfoot when hazards are present.
Corduroy tactiles that have horizontal ribs are used at the top and bottom of staircases and on mid landings where required to identify that a change in elevation is coming up.
Standard blister tiles have small evenly spaced raised blisters and are used at pedestrian crossings to identify a road crossing point.
Off street blister tiles also have small raised blisters but the blisters are even in one direction but offset in the other. They are used at railway platform edges. The even spaced blisters highlight the safe walking direction with the offset identifying the direction to the platform edge.
All tiles have an anti slip top surface allowing them to be installed both internally and externally. At only 4mm base thickness, the tiles can be installed without the need to dig out to inset the tiles, which is common with traditional concrete tactiles.
