Braille & Tactile

Braille and tactile signs are no longer just found in hospitals and hotels. Following the introduction of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, employers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to premises so as not to put disabled people at a disadvantage. This could mean suitable signage needs to be put in place to help partially sighted or blind people use your waiting room, canteen, cloakroom or bathroom facilities.

Manchester Sign Co. are able to supply and install various different types of Braille and tactile signage in both metal and contrasting plastic. All these signs are manufactured in house and follow the current requirements of the DDA Act 1995 and the Equality Act  2010.

In the past Braille and tactile signs were mostly functional and uninspiring at best, these days there is no reason why they can't be part of an attractive signage scheme. If you are not sure how you may be affected by the requirements, contact us and we can advise you or carry out a survey of your premises to ascertain what would be best.
