What are Tactile Indicators?
Tactile Ground Surface Indicators (TGSIs) are raised tactile studs or bars installed on the ground. These products provide crucial orientation cues and/or warning in public spaces. Individual studs 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 vision impaired. They are typically installed at the top or bottom of staircases, ramps or autowalks.
At Classic, we have a wide range in multiple materials and colours that meet the Australian Standards.
