Demarcation studs from Sportsmark are designed to meet the recognised requirements for tactile surfacing, ensuring that walkways are safely marked for those that are visually impaired. Over one million UK residents are registered as legally blind, with roughly 5% of those having no sight at all.
The purpose of demarcation studs and tactile surfaces, as per the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions is: “To provide a warning to visually impaired people who would otherwise, in the absence of a kerb upstand >25mm high, find it difficult to differentiate between where the footway ends and the carriageway begins.
“The surface is, therefore, an essential safety feature for this group of road users at pedestrian crossing points, where the footway is flush with the carriageway to enable wheelchair users to cross unimpeded.”
The Need for Demarcation Studs
If your facility is responsible for pavements and or car parking, then you have an obligation to ensure that these areas can be used safely by all members of the public. Should there be an incident that occurs on your facility that could potentially have been avoided with the presence of demarcation studs, it is your facility that could be held accountable.
How to Install Demarcation Studs
Drill a hole of 10-12mm diameter to a depth of 35mm then clear the dust away from the interior of the hole and surface to be covered by the head of the marker. Apply a small quantity of 2-pack epoxy adhesive into the hole and the surface area immediately around the hole. Press the stud firmly into the hole until it is flush with the surface. Finally, remove any excess adhesive.
