Tactile indicators are everywhere in the public environment: Vision impaired pedestrians rely on consistency for accurate interpretation of the cues provided by tactiles.
To maintain consistency, a number of factors need to be considered:. Tactiles need to be manufactured to precise specifications to achieve adequate prominence without causing a tripping hazard. Tactiles must be installed with the correct spacing between each unit. 1428.4 contrast contributes to the efficacy of tactile indicators for visions impaired pedestrians.
The reason for this is that a large percentage of vision impaired people still retain partial vision and can detect the contrast provided by suitably coloured tactiles. Failure to consider the background colour could result in insufficient contrast.

Refer to the luminance chart for selection details. An essential consideration when selecting tactile indicators is the level of slip resistance provided. Tactiles are often placed at hazardous locations such as bus and rail platforms, escalators, top of stairs and pedestrian crossings.
Due to the nature of their application, tactile indicators need to withstand harsh conditions including constant foot traffic, heavy rolling loads, extreme UV levels and other natural elements such as wind and rain.

Choosing hard wearing, UV Stabilised Tactiles is essential to maintain appearance and functionality. Poor quality products suffer degradation over time.
Worn surfaces and faded colours eventually render tactiles non-compliant. Contact ABS Ws for further information, or link to our tactile indicator product page.
