description

All of Sunscreen’s Braille Signage is designed in Australia to meet and exceed requirements for Braille and tactile signage applications.

Braille signage Clause D3.6 of the BCA requires the Braille and tactile signs be utilised in all buildings other than private residences for sanitary (toilet) facilities, and to indicate accessibility to entrances and lifts.

Toilet signs are to be located on the wall (not on the door), on the hardware (door knob) side, with the line of Braille between 1250 mm and 1350 mm above floor level, at least 50 mm from the jamb. If this is not possible, it should be located on the hinge side. If that is not possible, it should be located on the door.

Directional Braille and tactile signs should be located at the same height, directly ahead in the direction of travel.

Each plate consists of embossed tactile design, text and braille lettering. The tactile components use standard imagery and fonts to ensure vision impaired non-braille readers can decipher the sign. The standard braille locator symbol is on the left hand side of the plate in line with the braille elements.

Dimensions
Are typically 190mm x 190mm, but we offer a customized or architecturally designed signs if required. Signs have radius corners.
