Accessibility & Safety

When it comes to ensuring the safety of pedestrians including the visually impaired, there are special considerations to be taken. We have therefore developed a full product program for accessibility and safety markings to resolve this specific and important need.

With our range of perceptible warnings, you can safe-proof steps and walkways and help guide the visually impaired in traffic. Our product range includes everything in coloured surfacing, skid-resistant materials and tactile markings suitable for both stairs, steps and streets.

See our recommended solutions for the areas below – or view our full product program:

 



Stairs and steps

PREMARK™ Anti-skid is a preformed thermoplastic marking with particularly strong anti-skid properties. It is highly recommended for accentuating steps, for safe-proving slippery substrates and for any other places where its inherent anti-skid qualities can improve user-safety.

Tactile markings

We have developed two tiles to help the blind and visually impaired navigate the streets with tactile markings. The domed TacPad indicates a safe place to cross the road (e.g. a pedestrian crossing) or a change of direction. The ribbed TacGuide, on the other hand, informs you of and guides you through hazardous areas in the traffic.

Tactile markings

With their tactile properties, these markings can help guide visually impaired people and provide slip- and skid-resistant surfaces for improved safety. Choose between the domed TacPad which indicates a safe place to cross the road (e.g. a pedestrian crossing) or a change of direction and the ribbed TacGuide, that guides you through hazardous areas in the traffic. On asphalt, the markings are applied by means of an adhesive layer, while TacGlue™ is required for installation on bitumen free surfaces. 

 

Preformed thermoplastic

Our preformed materials for accessibility & safety markings are produced in flexible thermoplastic making it easy to cut and possible to shape around curves and edges. We offer a wide range of symbols and materials that add anti-skid properties to exsisting surfaces.
