Tactile Ground Surface Indicators for the Vision Impaired
Guardian Tactile Systems

Installing Guardian Tactiles Externally

The Guardian Tactile System has a degree of flexibility that takes surface irregularities and minor variations into account.

For external use, the Peel, Bond & Walk® system still applies but we recommend the application of our special surface primer.

A more cost effective solution

Once Guardian Tactiles are installed they can be walked on immediately

The unique design and ease of installation results in Guardian Tactiles being up to 60% more cost effective than other surface indicator products on the market today.

In addition, the Guardian Tactile installation process creates the least disruption to building workers and the general public.

Guardian Tactile Paving provides long-lasting solutions to the incorporation of aids for the vision impaired. Their unique design and impact resistant polyurethane composition makes them extremely hard-wearing and long lasting. Our tiles have a wear resistance equal to Granite and Ceramic Tiles (CSIRO Tested - review test report).

They are exceptionally durable, and stand up well to Australia's harsh outdoor conditions, as well as all types of indoor conditions. Guardian Tactiles are designed to be UV and VIS light resistant, so they will not fade or discolour. The tactiles will not peel, lift, chip, crack or slip when installed in accordance with our procedures.

Every Guardian Tactile we supply complies fully with Australian Standards (AS/NZS 1428.4.1:2009) and carries a full 10 year product guarantee from our company.
