Tactile Studs and Strips

KPC offer a range of Tactile Studs and Tactile Strips for use as anti-slip aids and particularly as aids for the visually impaired. Manufactured from high grade (marine grade) stainless steel and available in a variety of finishes, these tactile studs and strips allow quick and easy conversion of existing standard paving to Tactile Paving.

Quickly Convert Existing Paving to Tactile Paving with easy to fit Tactile Studs and Strips

These tactile paving inserts are a excellent alert mechanism for both sighted and visually impaired pedestrians, particularly at bus and rail platforms or at pedestrian crossing points. They are relatively quick to fit as a permanent fixture and remove the necessity to re-pave an area for the provision of better accessibility.

In addition to Tactile Studs we also offer two types of Tactile Strips for use as safety and directional aids for the visually impaired.

The two types available with our Tactile Strips feature either grooved or knurled surface textures.

Installation Instructions for Tactile Studs and Bars

  1. The relevant standards governing correct layout and orientation for the Tactile Indicators must be complied with and a drilling template positioned and taped to the substrate to avoid movement while drilling.
  2. The holes are individually drilled and the template removed.
  3. Dust and debris is vacuumed from the holes and a quality two part adhesive is injected into each cavity.
  4. The studs are fitted and tapped flush with the substrate with a nylon mallet.
  5. The installation can accept light pedestrian traffic immediately as the stud stems are textured to achieve an interference fit.
  6. Depending on ambient temperate, the adhesive takes 1-2 hours to cure completely.
