Tile patterns act as museum guide

  • Comment

Recognisable floor surface patterns at the Museum of London's new Docklands Museum will act as a guide to ease access for visually impaired visitors. Takpave rubber tiles in ribbed Corduroy indicate hazards and are positioned on stairway landings, while a Dash pattern of rounded-end bars is positioned in front of opening lift doors to provide safe guidance. The tiles were supplied by Rediweld Rubber & Plastics in a specific light grey colour to complement the museum's interior design and décor.

The Takpave family also includes Dot, a blister pattern that is used to indicate pedestrian crossings or platform edges.
