New legislation around TWSI's now in effect
New accessibility standards for public spaces, which includes new laws on Tactile Walking Surface Indicators (TWSI's) are now in effect. To ensure your company is compliant, contact Crozier Enterprises' TWSI Division to get an understanding of the legislation and to receive an immediate quote on TWSI's.
TWSI is the proud supplier of Neenah Foundry cast iron detectable warning plates, which exceed the standard and are in regulatory compliance with both the AODA and the American Disability Act (ADA).
Effective January 2016, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), under Part IV.1 of Reg 191/11 states that TWSI’s (also known as Detectable Warning Plates) are mandatory on all new and repaired depressed curb sidewalks in Ontario.

Report details how tactile walking surface indicators make streets safer
According to the Canadian National Institute of the Blind (CNIB), half a million Canadians are living with vision loss, with more than 50,000 more losing their sight every year. TWSI's play an instrumental role in improving accessibility.
Tactile Walking Surface Indicators(TWSI) act as a warning device to alert those with visual impairments of upcoming street crossings. As shown above, the plates consist of uniform sized, spaced domes installed on depressed ramps at public sidewalk crossings.
When a person with vision loss walks down the sidewalk using a long white cane, they will detect the domes on the TWSI before stepping on it. Once detected, they recognize that they’ve reached a transition from sidewalk to road and will adhere to their other training to safely cross the road.
