Polystud, discrete architectural plastic Tactile indicators are designed for installation in aesthetically sensitive applications or where exotic substrates are used such as polished timber, marble, granite, and the like. Polystud is engineered and purpose built tough to withstand extreme point loading and side impact. The unique formulation and large anchoring spigot not only ensure the product is made to last, it also protects the substrate from any possibility of damage. Polystud is long lasting & resistant to heavy traffic abuse and maintenance machinery.

Polyblades are an effective and easy alternative to individual Polystuds, providing a series of studs inter-connected via a 10mm Blade at 600mm lengths, for fast installation. Considered a retro-fit Tactile, Polyblades are a cheaper alternative to Polypads, and are suitable for concrete and asphalt surfaces, or areas featuring exposed aggregate.
