emco encourages companies to combine stringent quality with social commitment with their tactile guidance system.
emco’s 522 TLS tactile floor-level guidance system keeps buildings clean and reduces barriers for the blind and partially sighted.
The visually impaired are led safely and easily to where they want to go by the mat support chassis, running in the direction of traffic, with slightly different heights that can be felt both with the sole of the foot and with a cane.
The guidance system’s high-contrast colour scheme offers additional way guidance to the partially sighted with the ability to perceive differences in brightness. In addition to this, there is the option of integrating a rectangular attention panel to indicate a junction or change of direction.
The emco 522 TLS entrance mat is also extremely robust and easy to clean, with a long service life and premium workmanship. Thanks to these features, it is ideal for use in busy building entrances and corridors.
An ideal addition to the TLS system emco SPIN® SAFE is a further emco entrance mat innovation for the visually impaired. With it, the blind and visually impaired can easily and clearly detect directions and changes in direction with their feet or canes.
The tactile information provided on the floor by emco SPIN® SAFE corresponds to the standards in DIN 32984, already well known in outdoor areas. The robust stainless steel elements offer even more benefits: in addition to being tactile ground surface indicators, they produce a clear change in the auditory impression when a cane is used.
The system contains attention panels to assist at junctions and framing elements that always run perpendicular to the direction of traffic.
The material provides strong contrasts for people with visual impairments, who can therefore more easily distinguish between it and the rest of the entrance mat material.
The system is easy to integrate and is particularly suited to buildings in which the SPIN® SAFE floor-level guidance system from Hoba Steel is in use.
As with all the emco entrance mat systems, the TLS is also suitable for wheelchairs.
The tactile guidance system from emco is suitable for indoor and covered outdoor areas. This entrance mat innovation can be integrated into entrance mat systems and all popular floor coverings.
