Things to consider while choosing Tac Tiles.
Tactiles are unique non-fade, non-slip ground surface indicators. These indicators provide cues, which combined with other environmental information, assist visually challenged people with their orientation. Hi-Traffic Tactile collection has been designed with an emphasis on reliability, safety, dignity, and independence for visually challenged people.View Collection
Tactiles (also called truncated domes, detectable warnings, tactile ground surface indicators, detectable warning surfaces) are unique non-fade, non-slip ground surface indicators. These indicators provide cues, which combined with other environmental information, assist visually challenged people with their orientation.
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.
Tactile ground surface indicators are an important and mandatory design element in all modern construction and public infrastructure projects. The Johnson Endura Hi-Traffic Tactile collection has been designed with an emphasis on reliability, safety, dignity, and independence for visually challenged people.
