1/4 Paving / Tactile Paving

1/4 Paving
1/4 Paving

1/4-paving is an improved and low cost tactile paving design which can be installed behind doors that open in an outward direction so as to warn pedestrians who are blind or visually impaired to beware of door opening in an outward direction.

Made from reflective material with a base supporting and distinctive truncated domes pattern, it can be easily detectable by long cane or underfoot and alert people who are approaching to a surrounding with a door that is able to swing in an outward direction even in low light conditions in order to prevent any unforeseen accidents which are going to happen.
