Victorian State Library gets new Range of DTAC Ground Surface Indicators

Being a part of the $200 million overhaul of the 17 buildings that make up the State Library, is a project that DTAC is very proud to be associated with.

For this project DTAC has devised a new range of tactile ground surface indicators that were used for the State Library.

Designed and manufactured in Australia by DTAC, the new range includes solid brass and bronze tactiles indicators that can be applied to any stable substrate, including carpet. The traditional look that the brass and bronze tactiles indicators portray enhance the already extensive array of 316 stainless steel products for which DTAC is renowned.

The new range, DTAC Heritage, provide designers with a greater selection, especially when working within the meticulous parameters administered for landmark and national trust buildings. After all, this library is governed under the guidelines which have been adopted by the City of Victoria — Rehabilitation Principles and Guidelines by Robert Lemon; Nov 1989.

The State Library's first foundation stone was laid on 3 July 1854 and the infamous Dome, which is considered to be the centerpiece of the Library, was built in 1913.

DTAC tactile indicators provided an additional architectural feature to this prominent Victorian landmark without detracting from the classical design that is synonymous with the State Library.

With the brass and bronze range that DTAC offers, the scope for design with tactile indicators is limitless. Architects and designers are now able to provide an attractive solution to an increasingly demanding safety issue. DTAC's solution to safety is sexy, safe and attractive, allowing greater design freedom for all concerned.
