TacPro Polyurethane Tactiles

1) A unique stud design incororates a cavity under the Tactile Indicator head. This traps the epoxy adhesive, creating the maximum surface area for a strong bond between stud and the substrate that seals out water and debris.

2) Interference spikes provide a friction-fit for a strong mechanical bond to the substrate, which allows the stud to be trafficked by pedestrians immediately after installation. The interference spikes also prevent the Tactiles from lifting when the epoxy is still curing due to any air bubbles that may be trapped at the bottom of the hole.

3) Developed by Mobility Research Centre™, TacPro™ studs are manufactured from a proprietary formulation using polyether based thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and special inhibitor compounds.

The inhibitor compounds make TacPro™ TPU Tactile Indicators virtually maintenance-free. They exhibit outstanding durability and resistance against hydrolysis, microbial and UV attack.

Our materials provide structural flexibility and exhibit high impact and shear strength. TacPro™ TGSI will not crack, chip, fade or break even when exposed to extreme temperature variations.

4) TacPro™ studs combine a self-cleaning anti-slip tread pattern with 5) a raised anti-slip edge that greatly impoves slip resistance – giving a 0.75 CoF (Coefficient of friction) using the wet pendulum test method - equivalent to an R12 rating using the wet ramp test method.

TacPro™ Tactile Indicators exceed all relevent compliance standards - Australian Standards AS/NZS 1428.4.1:2009 and NZ/AS 4586:2004 Slip-Resistance Standards.
