What are Tactile Ground Surface Indicators?

Tactile Ground Surface Indicators (TGSI’s) are specialised paving systems strategically designed to aid visually impaired individuals in navigating public spaces. Comprising raised, textured surfaces, TGSI’s serve to provide tactile cues, alerting individuals to changes in the environment such as ramps, steps, or stairways. Two main types exist: 'hazard' style with raised dots for warning and 'directional' style using bars for guidance. TGSI’s find applications in sidewalks, train platforms, bus stops, and pedestrian crossings, contributing significantly to creating a more inclusive and safer environment for those with visual impairments.

Importance of Directional Tactiles

The importance of Directional Tactiles in public spaces cannot be overstated, especially in their pivotal role of guiding visually impaired individuals. These tactile indicators, often in the form of bars, play a crucial role in providing clear and intuitive cues, assisting individuals in navigating through complex environments with confidence. By tactfully indicating the correct walking direction, Directional Tactiles contribute to a safer and more inclusive pedestrian experience. In bustling public areas, such as train stations, bus stops, and intersections, these tactiles become indispensable, offering a tactile roadmap that empowers individuals with visual impairments to traverse spaces independently. In essence, Directional Tactiles not only enhance safety but also promote a sense of autonomy for those who rely on tactile cues for their daily mobility.
