This type of sound tile is used as a crossing marker to make blind and visually impaired people aware that they are approaching a road or a junction, as a marker at steps going down or to indicate the end of a tactile guideway. Soundtiles are made of aluminium and are topped up with concrete; when tapped with the cane or foot, the sound box on the upper side produces a sound different from that of the surrounding pavement.
The tiles have a coarse blister pattern and as a result are easily recognisable. For the sake of slip resistance, the tiles are sandblasted. The anodising process makes the tiles corrosion-resistant, wear-resistant and gives them a silver/white colour.
