Accessibility legislation requires implementing solutions compliant with codes for creating safe pathways for the visually impaired. Our Code Compliant Tactile Solutions with wayfinding bars are for areas that are not dangerous but indicate a safe passage for the visually impaired. The code-compliant wayfinding bars are specifically made in different materials, colors and sizes to provide compliance in all situations, inside, outside, on newly built, on retrofit and existent surfaces. They are offered in various colors and can be used in alongside attention domes.
Here are some of the features of wayfinding bars:
Advantage One offers high-quality stainless steel wayfinding bars designed specifically for interior spaces. These bars adhere directly to the floor to provide critical tactile guidance while seamlessly blending into your environment.

Access Tiles Surface Applied Directional Wayfinding Tiles (Directional Bar Tiles) are specifically designed to work in unison with truncated attention dome tiles. These Canadian accessibility code compliant wayfinding bars are designed to lead the public between spaces and follow the desired path safely. These (TWSI) tactile walking surface indicators use a series of bar shaped tactile surfaces creating a detectable path. These paths are created with truncated attention dome tiles to indicate where the path begins, ends or splits so the visually impaired can orient themselves to follow their desired path. Access Tile detectable directional warning pad is cost effective, light weight and extremely durable used with truncated attention dome tiles to create fully accessible pathways around any pace and to alert pedestrians of a paths end. Access Tile Direction Wayfinding bars are offered in Replaceable Cast in Place tiles and Surface Applied Tiles.

Advantage One® Surface Applied Tactile Walking
Surface Indicators are designed to provide an accessibility
solution in many interior applications. In particular, Surface
Applied can be used on the floor where TWSI are required;
but the floor cannot be drilled into to secure Advantage One TWSI.
Advantage One Surface® TWSI are stainless steel wayfinding bars
with a rubber base that adheres to the floor with a self-adhering
permanent tape. Like anchored Advantage One TWSI, Advantage
One Surface Applied are machined from a solid piece of 316L Marine
Grade Stainless Steel and are aesthetically pleasing, strong, and
durable. They incorporate an integral texture in the stainless steel for
permanent slip resistance. Advantage One Surface have undergone a
series of rigorous tests to ensure they meet the standards specified
in Provincial and National Building Codes. Advantage One® Surface
Applied is specifically designed for use when drilling holes for
the anchored version of Advantage One Bars is inappropriate or
impossible. Each 4-bars box comes with a clear plastic template to
use when installing in the prescribed bar pattern. Installation requires
using a thin blade tool, like a pocketknife, to ensure a clean lift and
peel off the tape cover at the base of each bar. Installation on the
surface of the floor should occur right after the tape cover is removed
to ensure maximum adhesion. The permanent tape adheres well to
most floor surfaces: wood, concrete, ceramic tile, stone, and metal.
However, the life span of the adhesion will be limited if automatic
floor cleaners, blows, or shovels are used on them.
The Advantage™ Cast-In-Place Tactile Wayfinding Plate is manufactured in accordance to ASTM A-48, Class 35B Grey Cast Iron methods developed over decades of research and testing. A blend of resins, ceramics and metals makes up the durable yet lightweight composition. The material formulation provides consistent high strength without compromising flexibility or embeddability. A textured surface makes the plate highly slip-resistant while maintaining an elegant aesthetic befitting any architectural environment. Its seamless integration sets no tripping hazards and ensures guidance remains intact under the most rigorous conditions. Years of weathering result in virtually no loss of color or definition to the tactile symbols, sustaining protection and direction for all users.
