Tactile guidance system from emco 522 TLS for the visually impaired

emco Tactile guidance system 

522 TLS for the visually impaired

emco’s 522 TLS tactile floor-level guidance system keeps buildings clean and reduces barriers: help the blind and partially sighted find their way around at the same time as preventing dirt being tracked into the building.

The emco 522 TLS entrance mat is extremely robust with a long service life and premium workmanship. Thanks to these features, it is ideal for use in busy building entrances and corridors.

Demonstrate your empathy: combine stringent quality requirements with social commitment. Choose the tactile guidance system from emco.

Doors, stairs and lifts made easy to find

The visually impaired are led safely and easily to where they want to go by the mat support chassis, running in the direction of traffic, with slightly different heights that can be felt both with the sole of the foot and with a cane. Put your trust in the emco TLS (protected by utility model since 2013).

Way guidance with high-contrast colours

The guidance system’s high-contrast colour scheme offers additional way guidance to the partially sighted with the ability to perceive differences in brightness. In addition to this, there is the option of integrating a rectangular attention panel to indicate a junction or change of direction.

NEW: emco Spin®Safe

Detecting directions and changes in direction for the blind and visually impaired


Perfect addition to TLS: DIN 32984 compliant

emco SPIN® SAFE is a further emco entrance mat innovation for the visually impaired. With it, the blind and visually impaired can easily and clearly detect directions and changes in direction with their feet or canes.

The tactile information provided on the floor by emco SPIN® SAFE corresponds to the standards in DIN 32984, already well known in outdoor areas. The robust stainless steel elements offer even more benefits: in addition to being tactile ground surface indicators, they produce a clear change in the auditory impression when a cane is used. The material provides strong contrasts for people with visual impairments, who can therefore more easily distinguish between it and the rest of the entrance mat material.

The system is easy to integrate and is particularly suited to buildings in which the SPIN® SAFE floor-level guidance system from Hoba Steel is in use.

Way guidance for blind and partially sighted people

The tactile floor-level information in emco's innovative guidance system can be felt with a cane, making it easier for the visually impaired to find their way in building entrances. The system has a particularly high-contrast colour scheme for partially sighted people. As with all the emco entrance mat systems, the TLS is suitable for wheelchairs.

Independent mobility around the whole building: doors are easily found, and stairs and lifts are accessible. Not only does this reduce barriers, it also increases safety.

Associate your project with social aspects, building with disabled access provision and demonstrating your empathy. With the tactile guidance system, you're choosing an outstanding entrance mat – and a very special one.

Protected by utility model Fewer barriers, with excellent cleaning performance

Protected by utility model

Fewer barriers, with excellent cleaning performance

emco’s tactile guidance system has been protected by utility model since 2013: the entrance mat is optimised for blind and partially sighted people and has outstanding cleaning properties. The TLS from emco is also designed for heavy to extremely heavy usage in building entrances.

Avoid dirt and reduce barriers. The innovative TLS was developed by emco in Germany and is manufactured to the highest standards of materials and workmanship, for long-lasting, highly functional results.

“DATEV traditionally stands for future-oriented systems. Now emco SPIN® SAFE, an equally innovative system on the ground, guarantees orientation in the entrance area of the DATEV III building.”

Guidance system for the blind

This is the installation of a guidance system consisting of alternating entrance mat profiles in two different construction heights (total height 22 mm).

Attention panel

This floor-level indicator is a clearly recognisable sign and is therefore important as way guidance at junctions. 

Framing element

This completes the emco entrance mat. It is always set perpendicular to the direction of traffic and has 100% cleaning action.

Flexibility throughout the building TLS: versatile and easy to integrate

Flexibility throughout the building

TLS: versatile and easy to integrate    

The tactile guidance system from emco is suitable for indoor and covered outdoor areas. This entrance mat innovation can be integrated into entrance mat systems and all popular floor coverings.

Use the TLS flexibly: emco’s guidance system is the better alternative for tactile way guidance throughout the whole building. Conventional orientation systems provide tactile information, but not the outstanding cleaning performance of a high-quality entrance mat. With the emco TLS, you save on cleaning costs!

Save on cleaning costs: tailor emco's tactile floor-level guidance system to your building.
