Since inception, the Austact tactile ground surface indicator (TGSI) was engineered with the explicit aim of manufacturing a product that meets world best practise. By utilising the very best-known high-performance polymers and advanced computer aided engineered design, we are proud to say, this has been achieved. Further, with over 15 years of service, we have no hesitation in standing by this exceptional product with a 10-year warranty.
Now-days Austact TGSIs are the preferred tactile cue used by most Australian rail authorities and is being used in some of the most discerning international rail networks such as Dubai Metro, Hong Kong Metro and UK Rail.
In recognition of this success, in 2018 the CTA Group purchased all rights to the Austact product and began investing heavily in modernising the manufacturing facility as well as research and development of highly efficient installation processes and equipment.
With 15 years in operation and the very best available product and installation processes and equipment the CTA Group has the skill and manpower to ensure large scale TGSI projects are completed to the highest possible standard and in the fastest possible timeframe.
