Against each business is a basic and brief description of the products 
they supply. 

 

As a starting point, the Standards Australia (refer to listing inside of 
this booklet) should be consulted first, as it provides requirements for 
the design and application of tactile ground surface indicators for new 
buildings to ensure safe and dignified mobility of people who are blind 
or vision impaired.
