Our patented corduroy trim (Pathway) can be used for any situation where visually impaired people need to be warned of a hazard and be advised to proceed with caution, for example:
The top and bottom of steps
The foot of a ramp to an on-street light rapid ransit (LRT) platform
A level crossing
Where people could walk directly on to a platform at a railway station
Where a footway/footpath joins a shared route
- Operatives will set out and prepare area for drilled stud application.
- Using pre‐formed steel drilling template (can be supplied), drill out 4 corners and secure jig in place with location pegs or loose studs. This will allow operatives to continue with the marking out procedure whilst ensuring that the jig stays in position.
- Operatives will use hand held drills to mark / form 6mm pilot holes ready for stud application.
- Once pilot holes are formed, remove steel jig allowing operatives to return and re‐drill hole to correct width and depth ready for stud application using SDS hammer drill and a 10mm SDS bit.
- Operatives will ensure all areas and holes are debris and dust free using an industrial vacuum or similar.
- Operatives will apply one part spit anchor resin around the tactile stud shanks (adhesive can be supplied on request) and insert into drilled holes, ensuring Pathway tactiles are fitted correctly.
- Ensure that any excess anchor resin is removed from tactile / substrate. Anchor resin expands around tactile shanked both locking and adhering tactilei nto substrate
- Wash down with water where necessary.
- Area is ready to receive foot traffic within one hour. Full cure after 24 hours.
