Braille and Tactile System

Braille is widely used by the blind and visually impaired to read and write.

Braille and tactile signs are increasingly becoming a required standard in all public places. And we are one of only a few sign companies in BC with a manufacturing license for making braille signs. Our signs meet all accessibility regulations and are available in a variety of colours.

The Braille System

Each Braille character or cell is made up of six dot positions, arranged in a rectangle containing two columns of three dots each. A dot may be raised at any of the six positions to form sixty-four permutations, including the arrangement in which no dots are raised.
