Using Hazard Tape

Using Hazard Tape

The example shown, taken from inside a hospital waiting room, is relatively common. However, it looks unsightly and will undoubtedly harbour germs in the exposed gaps. And we don't think it promotes confidence in a critical environment. 

While it's probably been used as a result of budget and time restraints, it's not an OK fix. In fact, according to the Royal National Institute for the Blind, it's actually a hazard in itself, because it creates a visual disturbance. 

It highlights the importance of good specification, installation and maintenance. It also emphasises the need to approach floor fitting professionally.
