Access® Tile Product Review Product-Review-Thumbnail-1

In recent times, Access Solutions National (ASN) Accredited Disability Access Consultant ‘Dale Sheppard’ has provided an independant product review of ESP’s Access® Tile.  In this review, Dale shares his insight into Tactile Ground Surface Indicators, identifies common issues with TGSI installations and highlights the reason why ESP’s Access® Tile is his preferred choice of TGSI products in Australia.


Dale has approximately 25 years professional and personal experience in the disability health profession.

It is with this academic background and living with a disability (Quadriplegia) that enables Dale to provide a holistic approach to compliance with current legislation as well as a focus on inclusion and accessibility for people with disability.

Dale has had an active role as an Accredited Member of the Association of Consultants in Access Australia (ACAA) since 2004 and has been practicing as an Accredited Access Consultant since that time.

Dale holds leadership positions on numerous State and Local Government Committees and is known for his strategic project management style and practical application of stipulated requirements. One such appointment was a Board Director of CBM Australia – A disability inclusive development charity responsible for delivering a portion of the Australian Government aid budget and working with developing countries to be inclusive and accessible the people with disability.

Since the formation of ASN Dale has been the principle Disability Access Consultant for a number of large corporate organisations, such as, Qantas Airways Limited, Fed Square and many of Victoria’s Local Governments.

Key Findings

Some key findings from Dale Sheppard’s Access® Tile product review are:

  • The Access® Tile is the ONLY Tactile Ground Surface Indicator product that ASN will specify / recommend.
  • It is the only TGSI product that doesn’t lift from the substrate causing trip hazards and maintenance issues.
  • Contains premium UV stabilisers, which are not on top of the tile but incorporated into the fibre-reinforced polymer compound.  This is imperative for Australia’s harsh climate and UV rays meaning that the Access® Tile will last much longer.
  • Fully Compliant to AS/NZS1428.4.1:2009.
  • The Access® Tile will not fade and blend into the substrate.
  • Additional grip / features beyond what’s required for a traditional Tactile Ground Surface Indicator.
