Flexitact is a surface mounted system which is adhered to an existing surface without the need for excavation. As existing surfaces undulate Flexitact is able to ‘flex’ into the undulations maximising surface contact and adhesion. Installation times are significantly lower than concrete tactiles, as no excavation is required, tiles are significantly lighter and easier to cut and lay.
- Surface mounted- no excavation or heavy machinery required
- Flows into surface undulations maximising contact and surface adhesion
- Resistant to cracking ⦁ Retained slip resistance through lifetime
- Hard aggregate content reduces surface wear
- Quick installation reduces downtime
Ninety five percent of visually impaired people have some vision and can see contrasts in light and dark. Flexitact Glow absorbs and stores natural light during daylight and glows its warning image for up to 12 hours in darkness. No electrical power is required as the light energy comes direct from the sun.
Slip/trip accidents can also be prevented as it helps to illuminate poorly lit road crossing points, steps and edges of railway platforms.
- Illuminates in subdued lighting up to 12 hours
- Prevents slip accidents in dry and wet conditions
- Free Solar powered lighting helps reduce on local street lighting and carbon tax
- Illumination at crossing points helps to reduce traffic accident
- Flexitact Glow” helps towards achieving a fully inclusive, sustainable environment
Flexitact Alert is a patented system designed to alert building owners/maintenance teams of tactile profiles which have worn below the detectable level which is set at a height of 3mm.
The tops of the blisters contain a diamond hard aggregate which is designed to contrast in colour to the rest of the tactile surface. As pedestrian footfall gradually wears away the tops of the blister a change of colour occurs that indicates the surface requires remedial maintenance.
Flexitact- Glow Alert
Glow in the dark pigments produce a change in colour under subdued lighting. As the tactile surface is worn below the boundary level a change in colour is observed indicating the surface requires remedial maintenance. This would normally mean complete replacement of the tactile surface.
