The corduroy surface provides a hazard warning to visually impaired people, for example: steps, level crossings or the approach to on-street light rapid transit (LRT) platforms. It is also used where a footway joins a shared route.
It conveys the message 'hazard warning, proceed with caution'. Part M and DDA corduroy fittings in HD composite - retro-installed into any pavement or floor surface anti-slip finish - HD Zircol Composite Step-Alert corduroy fittings are manufactured precisely to the Part M and DDA regulations; exactly to the recommended dimension and achieves a neat finish on all surfaces.
The profile of the corduroy surface comprises rounded bars running transversely across the direction of pedestrian travel. The bars are 6mm (± 0.5mm) high, 20mm wide and spaced 50mm from the centre of one bar to the centre of the next (Figure 02). It is recommended that the corduroy surface be in a contrasting colour from the surrounding flooring to assist partially sighted people and stainless steel is perfect for this.
