The Caesar floors for use as tactile paths are based on a system comprising raised surfaces
already used at international level and specifically designed to be easily identified underfoot or with a white stick, but also visibly different to the rest of the flooring. Installed over the planking level, the flooring allows the blind and partially-sighed to orientate themselves and identify places and potential sources of dangers, as required by law.
Percorsi tattili: una guida sicura con le soluzioni Caesar
I pavimenti tattili di Caesar si compongono di superfici dotate di rilievi, percepibili al passaggio, per consentire ai non vedenti e agli ipovedenti di orientarsi nei luoghi e riconoscere distintamente gli ostacoli e le altre eventuali fonti di pericolo lungo il percorso.
Being able to move freely through public buildings and spaces, while at the same time being made fully aware of the possible dangers, is a fundamental right of every citizen, even though architectural barriers still limit the access to some services and the social interaction of the visually impaired.
This situation has forced governments to legislate for the full accessibility to public areas, such as pavements and sidewalks, squares, stations and shopping malls.
When project-planning a building, it is therefore necessary to foresee an artificial path guide for the visually impaired to guarantee their independence and safety, a flooring system such as SAFETY, a special flooring designed and created by Caesar to satisfy these important requirements.
