Magmatac™ is a revolutionary new tactile panel designed to alert visually impaired pedestrians to hazards
The flexible moulded tile has been developed to offer significant benefits to users, including:
- Easy to lay
The tiles can be bonded to asphalt, concrete or steel and, being pliable, can mould to most surface undulations. As the tiles are applied to exisiting surfaces there is no requirement for lengthy and expensive structural work.
MagmaTac can be laid in busy pedestrian areas with the minimum amount of disruption and can be used within 2 hours of being laid.
The resin bonded aggregate used in the tiles has a Moh's hardness of 9 and is suitable for use in heavily traficked pedestrian areas.
- Compliant with standards
MagmaTac meets all of the criteria outlined by The Department of the Environment, British Standards and the Office of the Rail Regulator.
MagmaTac can be incorporated onto Magma Safety Panels for use when re-decking timber footbridges and platforms.
MagmaTac is available in 3 standard patterns
To be used in situations where visually impaired people
need to be warned of hazards such as:
- The top and bottom of stairs
- The foot of a ramp to an on-street LRT
- A level crossing where footways/ footpaths join a shared route
The "Off Set" blister pattern is for use on rail platforms to alert pedestrians to the proximity of the platform edge.
The "In Line" blister pattern is for use at pedestrian crossing points for road users to differentiate between where the footway ends and the carriageway begins.
MagmaTac™ tactile panels come in packs of 10 and are supplied with pigmented PU adhesive and application instructions.
