Corduroy Paving

The purpose of the corduroy paving surface is to warn visually impaired people of the presence of specific hazards: steps, level crossings or the approach to on-street light rapid transit (LRT) platforms. It is also used where footway joins a shared route conveying the message 'hazard, proceed with caution'.

The profile of the corduroy surface comprises rounded bars running transversely across the directon of pedestrian travel. The bars are 6mm high, 20mm wide and spaced 50mm from the centre of one bar to the centre of the next.

System benefits:

  • No surface excavation required
  • Rapid installation
  • Adheres to most construction surfaces
  • Hard wearing and durable
  • Lightweight and easy to transport
  • No 'hot works' adhesive only application
