Blister Surface for Pedestrian Crossing Points


The purpose of the blister surface is to provide a warning to visually impaired people who would otherwise, in the absence of a kerb upstand <25mm high, find it difficult to differentiate between where the footway ends and the carriageway begins. The surface is therefore an essential safety feature for this group of road users at pedestrian crossing points, where the footway is flush with the carriageway to enable wheelchair users to cross unimpeded.

System benefits:

  • No surface excavation required
  • Rapid installation
  • Adheres to most construction surfaces
  • Hard wearing and durable
  • Lightweight and easy to transport
