TACTILE CORDUROY ANTHRACITE with GRITSTONE STEEL GREY and STEP TREAD in BLACK

Like Tactile Blister, Tactile Corduroy contains porcelain aggregate throughout the tile body, for hard wearing and sustainable qualities. The Corduroy profile is designed to warn visually impaired people of the presence of specific hazards and implies ‘proceed with caution’. The two shades are contrasting colours which meet current building regulations for LRV contrasting variance. Features include:

  • Thickness of 12.5mm for very heavy traffic areas
  • Meets the requirements of the Joint Mobility Unit of the RNIB, DETR and the CAE
  • Exceptional performance and safety standards
  • 'Blister' option also available
  • Network Rail approved
  • No colour fading in UV light

London Underground Ltd

TM144:1999 Modified Standard
"When moving around the pedestrian environment, visually impaired people will actively seek and make use of tactile information underfoot. It is therefore important that textures warning of potential hazards ... are rigorous enough to be detectable by most people but without constituting a trip hazard or causing extreme discomfort."
