The SPIN® Safe tactile guidance system enables barrier-free construction in accordance with DIN 18040-1, DIN 32984 and DIN 32975.
The realisation of accessibility primarily focuses on the comprehensive social participation of people with disabilities. Accessibility for people with disabilities means much more than just comfort. Accessibility is a crucial prerequisite for inclusion. It enables people with physical disabilities to enjoy self-determined mobility, the greatest possible independence and participation in the world of work and leisure.
Accessibility means that buildings and public spaces, workplaces and homes, means of transport and everyday objects, services and leisure activities are designed in such a way that they are easily accessible to everyone without assistance. The understanding of needs, which are independent of groups of people and their limited possibilities, is represented in a “design for all”. By installing SPIN® Safe floor indicators, i.e. tactile and visual display elements in the floor, the public space can be designed for these people in such a way that orientation and participation are guaranteed.
The floor indicators, the tile guidance system, the handrail signs and the tactile overview plans with the corresponding individual stainless steel consoles form the SPIN® Safe guidance system for the blind, manufactured in our steel factory in Germany in accordance with the guidelines for accessibility in publicly accessible buildings.
Tactile Overview Plans
IN 32975 (Design of visual information in public spaces for barrier-free use) is also decisive for the design of tactile overview plans. Hoba Steel is able to respond to the individual design concepts of architects and planners in accordance with the DIN standards.
Our graphics department will develop a visual concept for you or implement new ideas in terms of colours, shapes and sizes. In this way, Hoba Steel offers new design possibilities for the production of tactile overview plans. In our own steel fabrication facility, we can produce customised wall panels and desk displays according to your specifications and the architectural situation.
A building should be “accessible without particular difficulty and generally without assistance”, according to DIN standard 18040.
With the handrail signs, Hoba Steel is adding an important component to its guidance systems product segment.
DIN 32986 (Tactile lettering and labelling) and DIN 32976 (Braille – requirements and dimensions) are used as the basis for the design and manufacture of tactile handrail signs.
Stairs that are not sufficiently visible are a particular difficulty in buildings. The stair angles draw attention, guide the way and thus prevent serious falls.
With their different surfaces and shapes, the elements blend in with the architectural surroundings.
