4 Things you Should Know About Braille Tactile Signs

With the first growing technology, communication has been made incredibly easier. One example of this is the evolution of tactile signs, which have been of great help in identification purposes. They are used to identify such areas as permanent rooms, directions and locations. Braille Tactile signs serve the same purpose. They can be made to form special shapes and colours. They are normally embossed to form certain shapes or letters to help people who are visually impaired in the identification and finding entries to buildings.

The Building Code of Australia (CBA) however, sets specific standards to be met by Braille Tactile signage. They are as follows:

1. Facilities

Entry to facilities such as washrooms used by males and females should be indicated with letters LH and RH which shows left-hand or right-hand entry into the desired facility. This is of great use when looking to avoid confusion and provide proper directions.

2. Character Specification

According to the Building Code of Australia, the required font for the characters is san serif. It also spells out that the titles should be written in title case, that is, each character should begin with a capital letter. The code also provides for the characters to be a minimum of 15mm high and a maximum 55mm high. The tactile height should also bear a minimum of 1mm and should not exceed 1.5mm This ensures clarity.

3. Surface Requirement

The surface of the characters should be smooth, even and unagitated to ensure hygiene. There should no add-ons. The signs should be made in such a way that they are free from adhesive failure and subsequent loss of letters and dots by removal. This ensures no confusions are caused in case of the removal of a character.

4. Colour Requirement

The Building Code of Australia spells out that the visible symbol should be in white colour mounted on an ultramarine blue background. The colours should be on the overturn of the product. This protects it from such uncertainties as washing, scratching or even picking in some cases.

Due in part to the above discussed, these are some of the things you should consider as you seek to find custom braille supplies. As you contemplate building a facility or just providing signage services for your clients, it is important that you make sure all the set standards are adhered to, lest you find yourself on the wrong side with the authorities. So there you go, make the right call.
