It is imperative that pathways and road crossings are made fully accessible to pedestrians. Dual use facilities, which cater for both pedestrians and cyclist, present a safety risk, particularly for the visually impaired.
SustainableTactile surfaces which help reduce plastic waste
Flexitact is a surfaced mounted system which is adhered to any existing surface. Innovations in our UK manufacturing techniques have enabled us to incorporate 25% recycled plastic into our base mix of resin and hardwearing aggregate, allowing Flexitact to ‘flex’ into undulating surfaces maximising surface contact and adhesion. Flexitact is fully compliant to the Department of Transports Guidelines and the D.D.A (2004)
