Individual tactile surface guidelines /tactile guide strips/ in shape of longitudinal ribs are made of stainless steel and ensure long lasting stable performance. They are also characterized by: good resistance to corrosion, abrasion, excellent resistance to weathering, ozone, sunlight and oxidation. Tactile surface guidelines /tactile guide strips/ are made with pins and without pins in a variety of designs with a possible plastic insert inserted into the product.
The system has already proved good in train stations, banks, universities, entrance areas, etc
Minimal impact on staff/pedestrians during installation
Quick and easy installation using a template on all surfaces, including concrete, ceramic tiles, asphalt, wood floors and
most other surfaces
The tactile guiding strip must be arranged parallel to the longitudinal guideing strips with a flat top.
Recommended distances between tactile guiding strips:
Upper level width of guiding strips (mm)
Axial distance between guiding strips (mm)
57 to 78
60 to 80
65 to 83
70 to 85
The layout and number of strips shown are illustrative, your layout may vary depending on the size of the guiding strips and the overall width of the guiding line according to the country standards.
Systematic research carried out on tactile warning studs with different dimensions has indicated that the upper diameter of 12 mm is the optimal dimension for blind and visually impaired people to detect and recognize the soles of their shoes. Experience shows that the optimal upper average for other groups within the community could be higher.

Installation of aluminum guiding lines in the Austrian state of Tyrol
Floor guiding systems for the blind were installed in several buildings in the Austrian state of Tyrol. The ALV aluminium guiding lines with a colored PVC anti-slip insert were used. In the photos you can see the guiding and warning indicators in a kindergarten, a museum and a local office. The installation was done using liquid glue. The warning field in front of the stairs at the top is composed of transversely oriented guiding lines.
