ceramic performance, water absorption, frost resistance and compression resistance, beautiful and generous. Purpose: it is generally used in places with high demand such as high-speed railway stations and municipal subways, with long service life.
(2) Cement tactile paving
The production cost of this tactile paving is relatively low. It can be made with secondary-recycled construction materials waste. It is relatively environmentally friendly. Purpose: it is generally suitable for low-end needs such as community roads. However, it features short service life.
(3) Metal tactile paving
This metal tactile paving is widely used. It is generally used on both sides of municipal roads and is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
(4) Rubber tactile paving
It is a new tactile paving product, which is suitable for early planning change and later transformation. It is convenient for construction.
The material is made of pure natural rubber without pollution and odor. It is a kind of brick for municipal construction with 300x300x7mm and other specifications, but it is obviously different from other square bricks in appearance. There are high dots and strip convex on the surface, which can point out the direction for the blind, so it is also called blind-guide brick.
Rubber tactile paving is manufactured according to the standards of the International Disabled Person Business Development League.

The surface of this high-strength rubber tactile paving is beautiful and smooth, which is suitable for indoor or outdoor decoration. Its rugged model can not only make the blind road safer, but also beautify the environment. During construction, the installation method of rubber tactile paving is also very simple and convenient, which is just spreading glue on it.
