Tredsafe Tactile Ground Surface Indicators
Alltac Sirius Plates are a unique and different product offering to individual tactile indicators. Alltac Sirius TGSIs are quick and easy to install in comparison to single studs or tiles as less adhesive is required and there are fewer holes to drill.
The main point of difference to individual tactiles is that when individual tactile dots and tiles are dislodged and/or broken, Alltac Sirius plates are designed to install over the damaged area. There is no need to remove and spend time repairing the substrate as the plates are designed to just install over the top of existing damaged areas. The Sirius plates allow for 360 degrees slip resistance properties, reducing the chances of slips and falls in transitional areas.
TGSI are truncated cones on the ground or floor surface designed to alert people who are blind or have low vision, to pending obstacles or hazards on the continuous accessible path that could not reasonably be expected or anticipated using other tactile and environmental cues. They are also a useful clue to sighted pedestrians.
The tactiles comply with the building code clause D1 Access Routes which ensure the safety of entry/exit to the building and the safety of any internal or external stairs. It ensures people can move safely into, within and out of buildings. Access routes include the approach to the main entrance of a building, corridors, doors, stairs, ramps, and lifts. D1 sets out requirements for: slip resistance, stair treads, handrails; people with disabilities to carry out normal functions within buildings; and the movement, loading and parking of vehicles.
