There are two types of crossing zones, controlled and uncontrolled. Controlled crossing zones include zebra crossings, pelican crossings, puffin crossings, toucan crossings and traffic signals with pedestrian phases. Uncontrolled crossing zones relate to side road crossings, busy crossovers, crossings away from junctions, kerb to-kerb humps and traffic signals without a pedestrian phase.

Tactile flags are available in three colour finishes to enable the partially blind to distinguish between different types of crossing zones. Red relates to controlled crossing zones, while Buff is available to distinguish uncontrolled crossing zones. Natural is manufactured for the ROI market. Different flag layout patterns are used to assist blind pedestrians identify different types of crossing zones.

Tactile flags are suitable for all pedestrian areas and traffic-free zones. Consult with the latest British Standard to ensure the correct flag size to suit your application.
