Tactile15® by ACCESS SAFETY® initially referred to as signaling, visual and tactile bands must be in a contrasting color with the existing pavement. One piece must be with raised points of relief sensitive to the tread as a warning signal and the other in the form of grooves in the same longitudinal direction of the march.
They are commonly known as pavements of points or lines that serve as a guide for the blind and people with low vision in the urban environment.Subsequently, and in parallel with the evolution of the concept of “Design for all” and the increased sensitivity of the concept of accessibility and urban mobility, its function was expanded to benefit other groups, such as guidance for the elderly or disabled. intellectual.
These ceramic pavements are designed to guide and warn pedestrians, especially those with low vision, of changes in level or imminent risks through surfaces in high relief and color contrast that are detectable with the foot, the cane or debris visuals.
It integrates recycled materials and quarry waste as part of its components. It contributes to environmental efficiency thanks to its long life cycle (greater than 50 years) and 100% recyclability. Drastic reduction of the carbon footprint during transport from 250% to 300% due to the low thickness of the product.
It is cheaper than natural stone by reducing installation time and reducing maintenance and cleaning costs.
It improves accessibility and safety for pedestrians, reduces noise pollution and eliminates the presence of bacteria, stains and odors on urban pavement.
