For individuals with a visual disability, direction finding in public buildings and unfamiliar surroundings is a particular challenge. The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 strives to reduce the difficulties as much as possible. It specifies that Auxiliary Aids and Services must be provided to help disabled people get access to the services they seek.

  • Attractive white lettering and pictograms on a dark grey background for high letter to background contrast
  • Tactile, coloured safety signs which meet the requirements of all health and safety regulations
  • Non glare eggshell finish
  • Smooth edges - Braille dots are domed and letters are soft shouldered
  • Braille grade 1 in standard English
