Installation Method

Tactile Indicators must be installed in the manner prescribed in AS/NZS 1428.4 – If required, refer to your distributor for advice.

  • Correctly position a AS1428.4 compliant flatback template (Available from CTA Group or your local SureSteel® distributor).
  • Using the template as a guide, lightly scratch the surface in the location of each tactile stud with a scourer to provide greater adhesion.
  • Wipe down the surface and re-position the Template.
  • Wipe the back of each Tactile Stud with Adhesive Cleaner to remove any contaminants.
  • Place a suitable amount of adhesive on the back of an individual Tactile Stud and place in the holes provided by the template. Apply firm even pressure to the Tactile Stud.
  • After completing the installation the area should be barricaded off to ensure the adhesive dries prior to pedestrian traffic. The Adhesive cure time is 24 hours.
  • 400 Tactile Studs are required per square metre.
