Tactile Ground Surface Indicators for the Vision Impaired
Assisting the vision impaired
"It is estimated that there are approximately 400,000 people living in Australia with legal blindness or low vision. This number is expected to double in the next 20 years, as a result of the ageing population."

Incorporating aids for the vision impaired in all indoor and outdoor construction is not only good practice, but it has become mandatory in all Public Access Disability Standards and the National Construction Code (NCC), formally known as the Building Code of Australia (BCA).
Approved by VicRoads
The Guardian Tactile System was approved in 2005 for use by VicRoads as part of its DDA Compliance Works Program for the declared road network throughout the State of Victoria.
