Tactile ground surface indicators
- Global Safe Technologies Australia
Tactile Ground Surface Indicator’s (TGSI) purpose is to provide a special surface on public pathways and access routes that can be felt underfoot and recognised as a warning of impending pedestrian hazard or to assist with directions, particularly to the vision impaired, but also as an added safety precaution to all pedestrians.
Tactile indicator specifications and installations are driven by AS/NZS 1428.4.1:2009 Design for access and mobility standard Part 4.1 as well as the Disability (Access to Premises Standard) 2010 legislation. Tactile indicators are classified either as warning or directional types.
Global Safe provides two types of tactile indicators:
- Drill and hammer method installation of discrete indicators.
- Peel and stick method installation for tactile tiles.
The range of tactile indicators provided is extremely functional, durable, economical and complimentary to any architecture standard. This was achieved by utilizing the best materials available and considerable consultation with engineers and architects. The result is a product that looks and performs like no other.
