Tactile flag paving is an essential part of any public area, serving as a warning to visually impaired pedestrians of any road crossing or gradient change, so it’s important to install the appropriate paving in these key areas. In conjunction with cycleway demarcation, cycleway tactile flag paving serves to mark out the areas that can be used by cyclists – and to warn visually impaired pedestrians.
Tactile flag paving is used to help inform those with poor vision in urban spaces, allowing them to enjoy their journey just like everyone else. It can be shaped to inform the safest direction of travel, as well as to point out any dips and turns in the path. Employed on train platform edges and kerbside, users can rely on the message it sends to travel safely.
