Andrew Connor of Connor Specialist Paving Ltd is the sole innovator of the Tac-Grid Tactile MMA resin system. Working on prototypes for 10 years the final design was complete in 2015. We had the tooling made and designed by Kavia Tooling using recycled plastics to make the grids which are then installed using MMA Resin and a robust QA system also designed by Andrew Connor. We had the support of Blackpool Borough Council in being the first to install Tac-Grid in 2015 and in the most prominent of location outside the iconic Blackpool Tower.
With the intention that all members of society should have the confidence and freedom to navigate independently around all shared spaces, Andrew Connor developed the tactile to eradicate trip and slip hazards at pedestrian crossings.
We have developed and can offer intelligent tactiles with the option to install Beacon technology within the tactile system which will assist all pedestrians including people with a visual impairment to navigate our high streets. This is the first 'talking' beacon and will inform the user of the location and type of crossing by the use of a free app. The beacon can be programmed by the relevant Council to include any information they wish to relay ie. this crossing is closed etc
