Braille & Tactile Signs

All standard Braille imprint signs are held in stock.
Signlink has one of the largest Braille & Tactile range in the market today with over 45 standards signs.
The Braille Imprint range was specifically developed for a commercial environment such as hospitals, universities, schools and government buildings.
Braille imprint signs are moulded from a single piece of polycarbonate with all graphics elements of the sign being permanently moulded into the face.
All graphics are printed on the inside face of the polycarbonate which has been applied to a semi rigid polyethylene plate. All signs are supplied with 3M 367 double sided tape applied to 100% of the back of the sign for installation.

Braille SignsAll signs comply with the Australian building code.

With current amendments to the Australian building code, every exit in the following scenarios are required to have a Braille and Tactile exit sign installed;

• Exit doors opening to a stairway
• Exit doors opening to the street or open area
• Exit doors for all horizontal exits in a storey.
The signs must state: “Exit” and “Level” followed by the floor/level number. The sign is to be installed on the wall on the latch side between 50mm from the architrave. It must also be located between 1250 and 1600mm from FFL.

Complementing our standard range of Braille & Tactile Pictograms signs is the custom and bespoke 3D Printed signs. Custom signs can be produced from a supplied set of artwork or our art department can supply artwork based on our sizes and layouts.
