Anti-Slip Tactile Paving for the visually impaired
Tactiles are a range of paving plates that bear distinctive, raised surface profiles designed to be detectable by both sighted and visually impaired pedestrians. Tactile paving can be used to convey important information about the environment for example hazard warning, directional guidance, or the presence of an amenity.
Anti Slip - gritted surface tested in accordance with BS7976-2. It provides an exceptional level of slip resistance in all directions. Lifespan guaranteed for 10 years subject to standard use applications.
Fire Resistant - meets Class A2-s1 in accordance with EN ISO 9239-1.
Lightweight - GRP is a convenient, fast, and safe installation material, reducing the risk of manual handling injuries, and easily cut on-site without the need for hot works permits.
Non-Conductive - GRP acts as an insulator making it ideal for application in and around HV plant and equipment. It can also be supplied with a carbon finish to provide static discharge characteristics needed in electro-static sensitive environments.

About Anti-Slip Tactile Paving Plates
Visually impaired people who move around independently, do so by using residual sight or by using a long white cane to sweep the ground in front, detecting changes in surface texture.
Tactile paving can be used to convey important information about the environment to visually impaired people, for example hazard warning, directional guidance, or the presence of an amenity.
Research has shown that visually impaired people can reliably detect, identify and remember a limited number of different tactile paving surfaces and the meanings assigned to them.
