For more than a decade, DTAC Pty Ltd has been the trusted name in the design, supply and installation of tactile indicators and now stair treads and edging.

Comprising a team of technical support staff and highly trained contract installers, it is DTAC’s attention to detail and their specialist knowledge that sees architects, designers and builders choose DTAC to meet the tactile, stair and tread edging compliance requirements, from the smallest to the largest iconic developments in Australia.

In addition to meeting the mandatory compliance, DTAC’s products also offer visual appeal.
“DTAC pioneered the architectural floor tactile industry in Australia taking a utilitarian product and transforming it into a feature that compliments the structure. DTAC now deliver the most aesthetic NCC-BCA compliant solutions available,” explains DTAC Operations Manager Michael Moulding.

Through its trained experts and certified tactile and edging installers, the company provides services across the nation.

“All our installers go through an 18-step accreditation process before going onsite,” Michael adds.

“Therefore our clients can be assured that our DTAC trained contractors have the expertise and knowledge when it comes to the compliance and overall aesthetics of tactile and edging installation.”

Offering a comprehensive range of tactile products, the company designs and crafts their products to DTAC design certification as well as Australian standards. The products also conform to the National Construction Code and Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) requirements.

When it came to the 700 Bourke Street development, the company installed their classic stainless steel tactiles in the foyer of the NAB building. A last minute change to the substrate meant a DTAC polyresin tactile tile was required for the landings of the building’s stairwells.

“As a company, we are able to work with these last-minute alterations. As with any work plan, there can be changes to the flooring, and working in with these changes is part and parcel of what we do,” Michael explains.

“For the 700 Bourke Street project we had a total of four staff working onsite, including installers,” Michael adds.

DTAC also installed classic stainless tactiles and polyresin tactiles throughout the public roof top terrace, podium, car park and surrounding streetscapes.

Now a member of the Raven Products Group, DTAC will continue to provide their expert services across a range of developments throughout Australia, including building entries and open spaces, stairs, kerbs and ramps, escalators, bus stops, landings, inclines, anti-skateboard tactiles and more.

In addition to 700 Bourke Street, the company can count the Melbourne Recital Centre, Ericsson Victoria Harbour, Sydney’s Cook and Phillip Park, the Subiaco Arts Centre and Tasmania’s Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) among its long list of major projects.

DTAC also provides custom designs, such as the installation of custom stair edging for the Now and When Australian Urbanism exhibition at the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennale.

As innovators in their industry and the world, the company continues to strive for excellence in their design and craftsmanship.
