Tactile Systems and Hazard Warning Surface

Tactile Systems

Surface Mounted Tactile Paving Systems

The Blister Surface is available as red for controlled crossings and buff for uncontrolled crossings.

In both 400 x 400mm and 450 x 450mm sizes and as illustrated in the images offers the following benefits:-

  • No heavy duty plant was used.
  • No excavation was required.
  • Both these crossings were completed in less than 2 hours, keeping pedestrian and traffic management to a minimum.
  • No cracking - reduces trip hazard.
  • Hard wearing, more durable than concrete.
  • Skid resistance value (SRV) tested and found to be far higher than concrete.
  • Ultra violet (UV) tested for colour fade.
  • Specially formulated adhesive, which bonds to most surfaces.
  • Freeze thaw tested. (details available on request)



"The purpose of The Blister Surface is to provide a warning to visually impaired people who would otherwise in the absence of the kerb upstand less than 25mm high, find it difficult to defferentiate between where the footway ends and the carriageway begins. The surface is therefore an essential safety feature for this group of road users at pedestrian crossing points, where the footway is flush with the carriageway to enable wheelchair users to cross unimpeded."

Hazard Warning Surface

The Hazard Warning Profile has been designed to comply fully with the Disability Discrimintion Act (DDA) 2004 and as illustrated offers the following benefits;

  • Using the specially formulated two part adhesive enables the tile to adhere to virtually any surface ie; Concrete, Tarmac, Terrazzo, Wood, Metal, Marble and Ceramic.
  • No excavation was required, particularly crucial at sites where DDA compliance is an issue.
  • Fast and clean installation means that these projects were carried out with minimal disruption and in a cost effective manner.
  • Skid Resistance Value (SRV) tested and found to outperform anti slid surfaces. (Details available on request)


    "The purpose of The Corduroy Surface is to warm visually impaired people of the presence of specific hazards; steps, level crossings or the approach to on street light rapid transport (LRT) Platforms. It is also used where a footway joins a shared route, It conveys the message Hazard proceed with caution"
