These are prominent land paths that come in a convenient and suitable manner and are consistent with the different floors and colors of the facility, and these paths enable the blind and visually impaired to walk inside the facility without dependence on others, as well as to avoid collision with the various things inside it.
These tactile tiles come in different materials including: rubber self-adhesive strips, rubber plates, stainless steel, ceramic etc.
The maps are either Braille only, or multisensory maps that are equipped with a sound system for the blind as well as a screen containing sign language for the deaf visitors. The maps serve to give a clear picture of the corridors, facilities, entrances and exits of the building.
