A revolutionary new tactile panel designed to alert visually impaired pedestrians to hazards

The flexible moulded tile has been developed to offer significant benefits to users, including:

  • Easy to lay
    The tiles can be bonded to asphalt, concrete or steel and, being pliable, can mould to most surface undulations. As the tiles are applied to exisiting surfaces there is no requirement for lengthy and expensive structural work.
  • Quick
    MagmaTac can be laid in busy pedestrian areas with the minimum amount of disruption and can be used within 2 hours of being laid.
  • Durable
    The resin bonded aggregate used in the tiles has a Moh's hardness of 9 and is suitable for use in heavily traficked pedestrian areas.
  • Compliant with standards
    MagmaTac meets all of the criteria outlined by The Department of the Environment, British Standards and the Office of the Rail Regulator.

MagmaTac can be incorporated onto Magma Safety Panels for use when re-decking timber footbridges and platforms.
