    Standards New Zealand - helping with accessibility for sight-impaired people

    Standards like AS/NZS 1428.4.1 play a crucial role in providing tactile ground surface indicators (TGSIs) to aid orientation and safety for the visually impaired in navigating busy streets.


    Advocating for Safer Environments

    Over 180,000 New Zealanders and 400,000 Australians living with blindness or low vision face accessibility challenges. AS/NZS 1428.4.1 was collaboratively developed to address this need, involving various experts and advocates.


    Encouraging Compliance

    While not mandated by New Zealand building regulations, adhering to AS/NZS 1428.4.1 aligns with broader legislation promoting equal rights for disabled individuals. It assists councils, landowners, contractors, and surveyors in integrating TGSIs effectively into public spaces.


    Ensuring Proper Implementation

    AS/NZS 1428.4.1 provides comprehensive instructions for TGSI installation, ensuring uniform application and promoting consistency and safety across various environments.


    Standardized Practices for Inclusive Access

    Following established standards like AS/NZS 1428.4.1 in TGSI installation ensures equitable and safe access for thousands of visually impaired individuals.
