Help for accessibility FEELING THE CONTRAST


Increasing attention is being given to the role of colour and tone contrast as aids for accessibility, primarily for the visually impaired, with a key report published earlier this year (aj 3.7.97). Armitage Shanks has responded with a range of handrails and bathrooms fittings incorporating the lessons in colour, tone and texture of surfaces.
