Tactile Pavers

Tactile Paving is used to provide distinctive surface indicators, detectable by cane and underfoot; such as the truncated domes on Warning Tactile Pavers or the bars on Directional Tactile Pavers. They are used along walkways and public pathways to alert the visually impaired of grade changes, pedestrian ramps, stairs, and approaching streets. SmartStone’s Tactile Pavers have protrusions to tell visually-impaired pedestrians something specific about their location and the direction along which they are going. 

Available at the following branches:

Midrand, Pretoria, Durban, Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Nelspruit, and Mozambique.

Warning Tactile Paver

Pavers used to warn about a sudden up or down grade change. They are ideal for guiding pedestrians on sidewalks, pedestrian ramps, and other platforms. Their knobs are manufactured to be a precaution against slipping, especially when wet.
