Our indicators are generally used to create a tactile cue and caution and direct people whom may suffer from visual impairments away from hazards and obstacles. Additionally, they can act as a warning to everyone that a change in surface or environment is occurring.
We’ve installed our tactile indicators in many different facilities and locations, including sporting stadiums, event venues, offices and retail buildings, schools and universities, public transport facilities (such as bus stops and train stations), and hospitals.
Further, with their simple instructions and easy-to-use design, our indicators can be installed into a variety of surfaces, including: concrete, stone, timber, and bitumen.
