THESE ARE VITRIFIED PORCELAIN BODY TILES SPECIALLY DESIGNED TO ASSIST THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED.
These are high chemical and stain-resistant with higher abrasive resistance than concrete or polymer-based products. It has two types of special textures and three colours to suit a variety of applications and area demarcations.
Tactile ground surface indicators are an important and mandatory design element in all modern construction and public infrastructure projects.
Tactile warnings provide a distinctive surface pattern of "truncated domes" (which are small domes that have had their tops cut off, or truncated) or "truncated bars" detectable by long cane or underfoot which are used by visually challenged people of their approach to streets and hazardous drop-offs - thereby alerting them of impending danger from oncoming vehicles or a change in path gradient.
