Tactiles & Tactile Studs

Cost-effective Accessibility Systems

Simple, durable and versatile tactile solutions.

Ensuring that your building and its surroundings are safe and accessible for the visually impaired requires the use of high-quality and durable Tactile Ground Surface Indicators (TGSIs) and tactile studs. Our range of peel-and-stick Tactiles, Ceramic Tactiles and Tactile Studs provide a cost-effective solution to make your building compliant with Australian Public Access Standards.

Peel & Stick Tactiles

This is a retro-fit Tactile system with no need for trenching out the area or saw cutting, it comes complete with an installation kit.

Ceramic Tactiles

Designed for tiled areas, our range of Ceramic Tactiles are ideal for use in bathrooms and meet a range of AS/NZS accreditations.

Tactile Studs

With a full range to meet different flooring requirements, our Tactile Studs are versatile and easy to install on a range of surfaces.

Colour Options

Birrus Peel & Stick Tactiles come in a range of 6 different colours to suit your colour scheme. Ceramic Tactiles are available in 4 different colours.

No on-tile branding

In response to customer feedback, our tactiles do not feature a logo or brand name on the front of the tile to spoil the simplicity of the design.

Versatile Tactiles

Peel & Stick Tactiles are engineered for a range of surfaces including: Concrete (internal/external), Ceramic/Tarracotta/Terazzo Tiles, Asphalt/Bitumen, Timber Decking/Floors (internal/external), Carpet/Lino and Checker/Plate Metal.

Easy to Install

Peel & Stick Tactiles are a retrofit system with no need for trenching out the area or saw cutting. Simply peal and stick using the high grade Super-stick Butyl Backing. Birrus Ceramic Tactiles are installed in the same way as you would normal tiles.

Versatile Stud Options

Birrus can provide 5 variants of their Tactile Studs for installation in different environments and on different flooring surfaces.

Durable

Birrus Peel & Stick Tactiles are tested for harsh Australian weather conditions and they are UV Stabilised to ensure that their colour remains constant.

Installation

Peel & Stick Tactiles

  • No special tools or site preparations required.
  • Primer is required for new concrete or tactiles installed in the elements.
  • Place angle in the recess and set angles level with adjoining floor surfaces. Glue in or screw fix as required. Contractors are advised, to ensure proper performance of the entire assembly it is absolutely necessary that the base of matwell is formed to a level plane, using an engineered screed.  We do not recommend sand and cement screed as it will break up over time.

Ceramic Tactiles

  • Lay Ceramic Tactiles as you would normal tile units.
  • Tile thickness is 10mm and it is best to leave 13-15mm rebate in freshly laid concrete to accommodate glue and cement. Also, leave 2-3mm gap for grouting the tiles.
Warranty

Peel & Stick Tactiles:

  • 5 Year Warranty Against Fading, Cracking and Delamination
