You might observe little domes or rounded points, slightly raised bars on the ground’s surface when crossing the street or boarding a train. Tactile Indicator is a type of tactile paving that can be felt underfoot or with a cane. They’re also known as detectable warning plates or ground surface indicators.

A common type of detectable warning plate is attention patterns, which are rows of truncated domes structured in a grid pattern. A guiding pattern, sometimes known as a corduroy pattern, is a typical pattern in which rows of curving narrow bars or lines serve as indicators. 

Tactile paving, or a tactile indicator, delivers a message about navigation to visually impaired people. It is set at curb ramps to mark the transition from a pedestrian path to traffic or warn a pedestrian to be cautious before a flight of steps. Since its integration into the urban landscape, pedestrians with low to no vision have seen substantial improvements in accessibility and safety.

Every element of our lives has improved as a result of technological advancements. And, when it comes to accessibility, the progress is unquantifiable.

Previously, a differently-abled person could not have imagined going up and down a street without assistance. Their movement has been much increased because of the invention of stainless steel tactile studs.

Materials such as Stainless Steel 316 L (marine grade), aluminum, brass, ceramics, and concrete are preferred for tactile indicators due to their longevity and resilience to weathering agents. 

WHAT ARE TACTILE INDICATORS?Tactile Indicators

You’ve probably noticed a row of raised studs or bars, usually made of a durable material like stainless steel, leading the way while strolling through public locations. Tactile indicators are those whole rows of slightly elevated bright appearing studs.

If you look closely, you’ll notice that each stud is mushroom-shaped, and they’re generally secured to the ground by drilling.

Raw Material used for manufacturing Tactile Indicator is as follows:

CONCRETE TACTILE INDICATORS 

These are composed of high-quality concrete and are meant to resist the toughest weather conditions while providing pedestrians with non-slip surfaces. Each bar is composed of two layers that are produced independently and then welded together. The outer layer contains an aggregate chip to provide flexibility and strength, while the top layer is designed with the perfect balance of materials to provide vibrant color while also preserving the coat from UV damage.

BENEFITS

  • It’s built-in in a way that’s easy to use. Use a small expansion anchor bolt to secure the interior edges.
  • The design is anti-skid. Reduce the risk of a blind slip posing a safety concern.
  • Durability and environmental protection. Epoxy resin does not need to be injected.

STAINLESS STEEL TACTILE INDICATORS 

Tactile indicators are frequently made using this material, which has a high level of resilience and resistance to wear and tear. Tactile Indicators made of marine-grade stainless steel can serve persons with particular needs for an extended time duration, even under adverse climatic conditions. These are available in both hazard and directional tactile forms, and while their functions are identical, it is easy to distinguish between the two under ideal lighting conditions.

Mr. Bhavin Ghelani is an engineer and entrepreneur passed his engineering from Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU). Since his adolescence, he has believed in society’s upbringing, and he has always desired to offer some value to society. He also has a religious side too. When in 2015, Our Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi started the Accessible India Campaign, also known as the Sugamya Bharat Abhiyan for all the disabled peoples in our country. He saw this initiative as a fantastic opportunity and after lots of deep research, he found the concept of Tactile Ground Surface Indicators which was being already practiced for Visually impaired peoples in countries like, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, United States of America, and many other developed countries. So at that point, the idea of the formation of ‘Eminent Tactiles’ under ‘Eminent Overseas’ came into his mind. Slowly & Steadily it has become India’s first and foremost manufacturer, supplier & exporter of Tactile Ground Surface Indicator products and under his vision, more range of products kept on developing so far.
