Tactile paving assists pedestrians who are visually impaired to safely move around built environments through a system of textured ground surface indicators that provide sensory information. Warning indicators are installed in hazardous locations such as the top of stairs and pedestrian crossings, in order to provide advance warning of oncoming hazards. Directional indicators are installed on the ground in the continuous accessible path of travel to give warning and provide directional information. Our tactile mats can be installed both indoors and outdoors and are suitable for a range of surfaces.
Our yellow tactile mats are suitable even for people low vision as it heavily contrasts their surroundings and makes is clearer for them to see.
