Vak© marcal offers a 100% accessibility-oriented signage with the aim of guiding and orienting all audiences.
The Visual - Auditory - Kinesthetic Vak© marcal system is used in three different forms of signage furniture and has three adapted solutions: writing with raised characters, transcription in Braille and the diffusion of messages with sound.
Vak© marcal signage products are made of natural anodized aluminum and RAL powder coated in order to guarantee high quality and long product life.
The conception of the panel guarantees total accessibility: height of the information and passage adapted to wheelchairs, format and dimensioning of the contents prioritizing a tactile reading, inclination of the easy plane for greater reading comfort, color contrasts and use of pictograms.
The Vak© marcal touch and sound panel consists of an area dedicated to a raised wayfinding map for haptic reading and an area reserved for programmable sound message activation buttons. The map and its legend benefit from a Braille transcription. The tactile map is made up of a plate in natural anodized aluminum that receives different layers in high relief and low relief. There is a color option to rank the information.
The schematic elements that primarily appear on the orientation panel are the flow of external and internal circulation, accessibility routes and itineraries, access to the building entrances and important points: reception, information, toilets, elevators, stairs, and common services.
The tactile wayfinding panel is intended for indoor use as it requires an electrical supply. Optionally, a version of an exterior tactile orientation panel can be made without sound.
Vak© marcal is also available as a free-standing totem or wall-mounted version and allows raised text and Braille transcription to be used for encoding permanent structural information, along with a more detailed printed paper legend for functional evolutionary information.
The ranges of detectable guidance products Podoinox©, Podotone©, Cedo© and tactile devices can complete the signage project of accessible ways and paths.
