It is difficult for blind people to find their way around a supermarket without assistance. WHERE IS... provides help via embossed stickers underneath the shelves: Guide signs at waist height on each shelf corner facilitate easy navigation around the store. A second type of sticker identifies the product group available on each shelf. Both types of sticker are differentiated by haptic codes.
These removable, reusable stickers are made from strong, easy to clean PVC film (recycled material - visual quality is secondary). The labelling contains grade 2 Braille and additional symbols (for quick identification and non-readers of Braille).
