Consultation, Construction and Training for Tactile Paving in South Africa
The regulations surrounding Tactile Paving in South Africa have only recently been reviewed and updated and are therefore still relatively new to most contractors. Gimi Access offers a range of supportive Tactile Paving Services to help contractors in getting their TGSI specifications right the first time .
We believe that everybody has the right to a dignified and non-discriminatory means of unassisted mobility. It is therefore our mission, not only to make our public spaces more accessible for the visually impaired through a system of clear detectable warnings, but to contribute, in general, to a society that is more inclusive and more aware of the importance of Universal Access (UA) and Universal Design (UD). This way, we can introduce TGSIs on a broader basis and create a truly interactive, accessible and usable environment for all.
Our professionals are available to ensure your project’s compliance with the relevant codes and standards.
By tapping into our knowledge base and applying our guidelines to your work, you can avoid costly delays and have the best chance to have your project certified the first time.
