The Guide Strip is a tactile orientation marking, detectable orientation surface, and emergency evacuation navigation aid designed for use by individuals who are blind or have low vision. It is a surface material with grooves that can be detected and followed using a white cane. It serves as a tactile guidance system enabling individuals to track safely to an emergency exit or place of refuge. At transit platform door openings, it can indicate door location and appropriate path of travel. It can also be used at crosswalk edges or anywhere else directional or emergency cues are required. It is compatible with current training methods for white cane travel, including following the groove with a cane ("tracking"), or going back and forth with the same motion ("washboard"). Strips are available in any width. COLOR: Blue, yellow, black, red, or white.
