At 160 years old, Royal Melbourne Hospital is one of Victoria's oldest institutions. As part of a multi-million dollar redevelopment, it opted for CTA Australia 's SureSteel tactile indicators for its safety features and aesthetic appeal, which were installed at the new foyer entrance.

CTA's tactile indicators enhances the unique style of the entrance, while ensuring the new areas conform to the Disability Discrimination Act (1992).

The new entrance features the SureSteel tactile indicators with stepped side face profile and concentric ring top surface.

The tactiles mark the foot and top of the stairs and changes in gradient along the ramped sections of the entrance.

Key features of the SureSteel tactile surface indicators include:
  • distinct design and installation technique
  • will withstand wear and tear especially in high traffic areas
  • anti-slip rating of R13 (tested by CSIRO)
  • quick and easy to install
  • manufactured from one solid piece of grade 316 stainless steel
  • Drill&Lock technology
  • complies with Australian Standard: Design for Access and Mobility AS1428.4:2002
  • complies with Building Code of Australia
