Bevelled edges for safe installation
One of the most important features of tactile tiles is their bevelled edges. This design feature allows the tiles to be installed directly on the surface without the need for a raised border. This is important for safety, as it eliminates the risk of tripping on the raised edge of the tile.
Curved Fastiles available
In addition to their standard rectangular shape, tactile tiles are also available in a curved version called Fastiles. Fastiles are ideal for use in areas where a curved surface is required, such as at the edge of a ramp or at the intersection of two walkways.
Attractive architectural appearance
In addition to their safety features, tactile tiles also have a stylish appearance. They are available in a variety of colours, including black, white, red, and yellow. This variety of colours allows tactile tiles to be integrated into a variety of architectural styles.
Long-lasting and UV-stabilised
Tactile tiles are made from durable materials that can withstand the elements. They are also UV-stabilised, which means that they will not fade or discolour in sunlight. This makes them a long-lasting and low-maintenance option for both interior and exterior applications.
Tactile tiles have a textured surface that provides a good grip, even in wet or icy conditions. This makes them an ideal choice for areas where there is a risk of slips and falls.
Complies with AS/NZS 1428.41
Tactile tiles comply with the Australian Standard AS/NZS 1428.41, which specifies the requirements for tactile paving. This means that they are a safe and effective way to make your environment accessible to people with visual impairments.
Largest colour range in Australia
Tactile tiles are available in the largest colour range in Australia. This means that you can choose the perfect tactile tiles to match the architectural style of your building.
Suitable for interior or exterior applications
Tactile tiles are suitable for both interior and exterior applications. They are a popular choice for use in schools, hospitals, shopping malls, and other public spaces.
Ideal for retrofitting
Tactile tiles are also ideal for retrofitting to bring existing installations into line with the Building Code and safety requirements. This makes them a cost-effective way to improve the accessibility of your building.
Perfect for new buildings
Tactile tiles are also the perfect choice for new buildings. They can be integrated into the design of the building from the outset, ensuring that your building is accessible from day one.
