    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out requirements for the design and installation of tactile ground surface indicators to assist people with vision impairment. Specific types of ground surface indicators that warn of hazards and denote direction are provided.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for the design and installation of tactile indicators for use on ground or floor surfaces to assist the mobility of people with vision impairment.NOTE : Guidance on the type and installation of raised pavement markers to delineate pedestrian crossing areas are included in Appendix A and on the general installation layout of tactile ground surface indicators in Appendix B.
