DTAC specified for RMIT Bundoora West student accommodation
When it comes to the design, supply and installation of tactile indicators, stair treads and edging, DTAC Pty Ltd is a world leading innovator and has been the trusted name in the industry for almost 15 years. The company pioneered the architectural floor tactile industry in Australia, taking a utilitarian product and transforming it into a feature that complements the aesthetics of any project.
For the RMIT Bundoora West Student Accommodation project, DTAC was engaged to design and install tactile and stair tread installations in accordance with the required building standards and regulations. Thousands of DTAC Ecotac TGSI’s were installed along with DTAC’s Urban Edging range on steps across the site.
The uniqueness of these products is that DTAC’s Ecotac is an environmentally friendly alternative to the classic solid tactile. Whilst they appear identical when installed and AS/NZS 1428.4 / NCC compliant, the Ecotac features a cupped underside that uses less stainless steel. It has a slip resistance classification of R12 and utilizes a superior pressure fit fixing method ensuring performance and longevity.
DTAC’s new Urban Edging is made from hard wearing silicon carbide inserted into an aluminium extrusion. The Urban Edging range complies with all national codes and regulations achieving an R13 slip resistance classification as well as luminance and fire testing compliance.
Michael explains that “as with most projects but particularly those in the public area like RMIT Bundoora, compliance and certification are of the utmost importance.” “Our products are tested and certified in accordance with the NCC, AS/NZS 4586 and AS/NZS 1428.4.”
DTAC pioneered architectural Tactile Ground Surface Indicators (TGSI’s) in Australia and continue to deliver the most aesthetic NCC-compliant solutions available.Learn more
