All stainless steel is marine grade 316, which has been further processed to ensure a lifetime of performance and resistance to corrosion. Plastic content of the metal insert and full metal range is modified to withstand impact and the environment. Full plastic models are manufactured from polyurethane to provide a tough wear resistant quality. Each component is automatically assembled utilising a patented mechanical technique, to ensure continued durability.
Austact’s manufacturing processes utilise the new technology available to ensure accurate repeatability. An inspection procedure is also implemented to maintain that only high possible quality component meets the requirements of AS/NZS 1428.4, for performance and design.
The Austact tactile Indicator No1 profile (patent pending) has been tested by CSIRO to verify the suitability of the product in a pedestrian environment. This component was rated at R13 (38.2Deg), to AS/NZS 4586:2004, Appendix D, which significantly exceeds the requirements and ensures a safety advantage.
