To meet code compliance, tactile warning tiles are installed in hundreds of linear feet along transit platforms, serving as a detectable warning of the platform edge.
The bright, starkly contrasting color of these tiles is one of their hallmark features, and our advanced compression molding systems allow for a bright, hi-vis color on every tile. Thermoset compression molding of SMC materials creates a light-weight, yet extremely durable, tactile warning tile that is easy to install and withstands the wear and tear of daily commuter traffic. The choice in material for these tiles are key and SMC is water resitatnt, creating a non-slip surface and will also not be effected by salt or other de-icing chemicals.
Tactile warning tiles boast many small details, that all need to be precise and repeated in exactness, not only within one tile but throughout the whole run. Our modern equipment and expert knowledge allows us to make these tactile warning tiles in high-volumes to meet the needs of the transportation unit, while still being on a small enough scale to get all the little details perfect.
For harsh winter climates, heating mechanisms can be molded right into tactile warning tiles, to increase passenger safety and decrease the time and cost of winter maintenance.
