It is their reputation for superior quality that has won Chelmstone a tender with Brisbane City Council to manufacture and supply a range of tactile pavers for the Brisbane bus stop upgrade project to be rolled out citywide over the next three years.
Widely used by local council and transport bodies, Chelmstone’s cautional and directional TGSI pavers are robust and hard wearing. With the added benefit of being non-slip – to Australian and New Zealand standards - Chelmstone’s tactiles are the preferred choice of Brisbane City Council.
Using CCS oxides in their tactile pavers makes them UV resistant and allows them to be manufactured in any CCS colour. This ability is why Chelmstone worked with BCC and QUT (Garden Point) to develop a standard range of tactile pavers with 30 percent contrasting colours to be used universally on Brisbane’s bus stop upgrade.
Using coloured concrete can also assist in improving luminance factors. Luminance – a measure of brightness at a particular light-reflecting point on a surface – is important in illuminating hazard indicators and providing safer surfaces in public areas. Chelmstone’s TGSI pavers are manufactured in accordance with Australian Standards for access and mobility (AS1428.1)
As a leader in the manufacturing of not only pre-cast tactile paving but also seating, bollards, architectural mouldings, pier caps, wall capping and planters, Chelmstone has worked with leading landscape architects on some of Australia’s most prestigious projects.
