Inscriptions in Braille

All our signage can incorporate the corresponding labeling and inscription in Braille, so that it is accessible to the visually impaired and to a greater number of users.

Thanks to direct machining, we can achieve writing that meets the accessibility standards established by the ONCE and, of course, with the highest durability on the market.

Accessibility regulations and signage for public buildings

We must take into account that the CTE (Technical Building Code) provides for Braille signage. Public buildings, for example, are obliged to respond to the rights and needs of the visually impaired.

For this purpose, among others, information must be displayed on plaques in Braille, high relief and macro-characters in places and situations such as information points, orientation boards, elevators, signage, vending machines, etc.

In this blog post we talk about  and its implication in terms of signage.

Experience in accessibility projects

Braille engraved aluminum plateIn Alumigraf we have extensive experience working on projects that improve the accessibility of buildings and public spaces for the visually impaired, such as the accessibility project of the Madrid Metro or the Quito Metro project.

In addition to offering all types of signage, lettering and adapted plaques that incorporate Braille language inscriptions, both in the case of Metro de Madrid and Metro de Quito, we installed anodized aluminum plaques with Braille inscriptions on the handrails of several stations and their accesses.
