Safety Step Canada specializes in the supply of Tactile indicator plates, which are a system of textured ground surface indicators commonly used at:
- pedestrian ramps
- crossing platforms
- and other waiting areas to help people who are visually impaired effectively navigate the surrounding environment
Whatever the specifications of your project, we have all of the tactile indicator variations you need, and with the options of either:
1. PU Tactile (flexible)
The Self Adhesive PU Tactile is a relatively new and unique concept in Canada. It has been developed to overcome the excessive costs of installing traditional ceramic tiles, which often require demolishing or reconstructing the floor. These Self Adhesive PU Tactile tiles can be easily installed on any type of existing surface in no time by peel-and-stick technology.
Safety Step Canada’s PU Tactile Ground Surface Indicators are peal and stick and are manufactured in a standard tile size of 300mm x 300mm with a square edge to ensure tight joints with minimal gaps. 1.5mm butyl rubber adhesive ensures perfect bonding.
2. Rigid and Cast in Place tactile indicators
Safety Step Canada’s superior quality, heavy duty fiberglass polymer composite tactile indicator tiles and panels are UV stable with homogeneous color throughout the entire panel.
Our panels contain premium quality long strand fiberglass in the base material. During the sheet molding process the fiberglass is blended into the base material during the mixing process and evenly disbursed throughout the entire body of the panel and into the truncated domes we all recognize. This is a critical feature because the truncated domes are the primary point of contact to us as we walk, and are subjected to the highest degree of exposure to foot traffic and street cleaning equipment manufactured in a standard size of 300mm x 300mm and 600 x 900mm
