Warning tactiles, sometimes referred to as hazard tactiles, are intended to function like a stop sign. The raised dots provide a textural change, indicating that the blind or vision impaired pedestrian should stop to determine the nature of the hazard in their line of travel. The warning tactiles come in a range of materials including stainless steel, brass and urethane. They combine performance and style with high slip resistance, while meeting Australia tactile compliance standards. The warning tactiles are also available as hand rail buttons, designed for installation in situations where Tactile Ground Surface Indicators are not required. The hand rail buttons are commonly required for hospitals and aged care facilities. ABS West supplies warning indicators as individual tactiles or as integrated tactiles.
