TACALERT ADHESIVES & TEMPLATES
Interlock templates ensure tactiles are installed to comply with AS/NZS 1428.4
LUMINATING - VALUES
Luminating contrast of tactile Ground Surface Indicators (TGSI's) is the difference in the amount of light reflected from the TGI's compared to the amount of light reflected from the base surface. Tactile Tiles should have 30% luminance contrast while Tactile Individuals should have 45% -60%. For further information refer AS/NZS 1428.4
What are Tactile Indicators?
