DTAC fitout the SJOG Bendigo Hospital project
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 with growing markets nationally and internationally. The company pioneered the architectural floor tactile industry in Australia, taking a utilitarian product and transforming it into a feature that compliments the structure.
As a member of the Raven Group, DTAC’s specialist team of professionals design and craft their own superior quality products to meet the challenges of Australia's tactile and stair tread compliance requirements. All products are crafted to DTAC design certification as well as Australian standards. The products also conform to the National Construction Code and Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) requirements. DTAC now deliver the most aesthetic NCC compliant solutions available.
“It’s our technical support staff and highly trained contract installers unequaled attention to detail and their specialist knowledge that ensures architects; designers and builders can make the right choice for aesthetic and functional compliance in every project,” explains DTAC Operations Manager Michael Moulding.
At St. John of God Bendigo Hospital, DTAC firstly delivered an extensive pre-tender process demonstrating the benefits of their products and to ensure compliance. This continued with ongoing communication with the builder, certifiers and other contractors from the design phase and throughout the life of the project ensuring a seamlessly delivered job.
The St. John of God Bendigo Hospital Project is the largest regional hospital development in Victoria. It will deliver a world-class regional hospital over a 4-storey building of high quality architectural design and will incorporate the latest design and technology solutions, in a tranquil and caring environment.
The main entrance of the hospital has a unique and impressive curved shaped pad of DTAC tactiles showcasing their superior installation methods. Products used internally and externally throughout the hospital include DT0120 Stainless Steel Ecotac, DEO410C Stitch Edging in Natural Finish and DTAC’s new DEO700B Urban Edging in Black.
DTAC’s new Urban Edging is made from hard wearing silicon carbide inserted into an aluminium extrusion. Specially designed by DTAC in Australia, the Urban Edging range is available in a variety of angles and profiles suitable for all stable substrates including carpet. The Urban Edging range complies with slip resistance requirements achieving R13 as well as luminance and fire testing.
“Our DTAC accredited installers will take only three weeks to install the large amount of DTAC tactiles as well as the many stair edges throughout the hospital project,” Michael added. “All our installers go through an 18-step accreditation process before going onsite, therefore our clients can be assured that our DTAC trained contractors have the expertise and knowledge when it comes to the compliance and overall aesthetics of tactile and edging installation.”
