What Is the Standard Size of Blind Way Tiles Installed on Roads?
The commonly used rubber blind way tiles have a size of 300*300mm and a thickness of 3-6mm. Blind way tiles are a convenient facility for blind people to safely navigate their way. They are generally made up of three types of bricks: one type is directional paving bricks to guide the blind to walk safely, called directional blind way tiles; one type is warning bricks with raised circular dots to indicate obstacles ahead and the need to turn, called warning blind way tiles; and the last type is warning paving bricks with larger raised circular dots to indicate danger ahead and the need not to cross, called warning and guiding blind way tiles. The size of blind way tiles varies and needs to be determined based on actual conditions.
Acid-resistant, pressure-resistant, corrosion-resistant, easy to clean, and resistant to acid and alkali. Their bright colors are pure and striking, and their appearance is elegant and generous.
Bright and colorful: high temperature firing and natural coloring give the tiles a purer, more natural, elegant, and luxurious color.
Elegant and generous: simple and generous, clearly tactile, smooth surface without color fading.
Weather-resistant: unique manufacturing process with consistent quality, can withstand strong wind and rain, snow and frost, and still shine brilliantly.
Types: directional blind way (strip-shaped) and warning blind way (circular-dot-shaped).
Advantages: well-designed, with sensitive tactile sensing, effectively preventing blind people from walking in the wrong direction and sensing danger.
The paving of blind way tiles is similar to that of pedestrian paving. During construction, attention should be paid to the following: when pedestrian paving encounters buildings, directional blind way tiles should be continuously installed in the direction of travel, and stop blind way tiles should be installed before curb blind way strips, with a pavement width not less than 0.6m; at pedestrian crosswalks, stop blind way tiles with a distance of 0.3m from the curb and a width not less than 0.6m should be installed in front of curb tactile bars. Warning blind way tiles should be installed 250-600mm away from entrances to pedestrian crosswalks and plazas, with a length corresponding to the width of each entrance; blind way tiles should be placed about 300mm from the curbs at the entrance to a pedestrian crosswalk, and a row of warning blind way tiles should be installed horizontally to indicate the entrance to the pedestrian crosswalk.
Xiongchang provides various designs for directional tactile indicators to suit your needs. The design and manufacture of blind way tiles comply with different global standards for tactile indicators. Various standards for tactile indicators require the design and application of tactile indicators in new projects to ensure the safety and dignity of blind or visually impaired people when traveling.
