Tactile Hazard Warning

Application

Suitable for all pedestrian areas and traffic-free zones where paving flags are used to assist the blind and partially sighted.

Description

Tactile paving flags available in three colour finishes to enable the blind and partially blind to distinguish between different types of crossing zones:

  • Red relates to controlled crossing zones, which include zebra crossings, pelican crossings, puffin crossings, toucan crossings and traffic signals with pedestrian phases;
  • Buff distinguishes uncontrolled crossing zones like side road crossings, busy crossovers, crossings away from junctions, kerb-to-kerb humps and traffic signals without a pedestrian phase;
  • Natural is for the ROI market.


Different flag layout patterns are used to help blind pedestrians identify different types of crossing zones. Consult with the latest British Standard to ensure the correct flag size to suit any application.
