What are Tactile Indicators?

Tactile Ground Surface Indicators (TGSIs) or tactile indicators are raised studs or bars installed on the ground. These products provide crucial orientation cues and/or warning in public spaces. Tactile indicators come as individual studs that are installed as units, drilled into the ground (ideal for retrofitting) and as mats, which are glued to the surface.

They are key for floor safety requirements in public spaces – especially for the visually impaired. They are typically installed at the top or bottom of staircases, ramps or autowalks.

At Classic, we have a wide range of tactile indicators in multiple materials and colours that meet the Australian Standards.

What are Tactile Indicators used for?

Tactile ground indicators are a crucial floor safety requirement, particularly for the visually impaired. Warning tactiles alert to the presence of potential hazards while directional tactiles assist with orientation guidance for a continuous path of travel

What are tactile systems?

Tactile systems encompass all we do with tactiles at Classic. We have products to meet any substrate, and installation methods to suit.

Where are tactile indicators required?

All potentially hazardous situations such as rail platforms, stairways, escalators, passenger conveyors/moving travelators, ramps and pedestrian crossings are required to use tactiles. When installed in accordance with the guidelines, the vision impaired are afforded the ability to safely and independently navigate the built environment with confidence. 

What is the Australian Standard for tactile indicators?

The current Australian Standard AS1428.4.1:2009 for tactile indicators provides direction when it comes to the various types, their placement, luminance contrast, size and quality.

For more information, refer to the Tactile Application Guide, available for download HERE. This guide will provide a thorough explanation of the Australian Standards.
