The height of a tactile stud or strip is measured from the base of the stud head and not the fixing pin. The required height for tactile studs and strips protruding from a flat surface is 5mm because that’s the proper height providing enough impedance to the walker to be an obvious signal without becoming a trip hazard.

Tactile strips are usually used to compose guiding lines. The surface-mounted guiding lines will effectively direct impaired people to walk steadily without any departure from the necessary direction.

Tactile studs and strips are also known as tactile ground surface indicators (TGSI’s). They are used to assist visually impaired pedestrians in avoiding dangers. Tactile studs indicate the presence of dangers, and tactile strips provide direction guidance along a continuous accessible path for travel.
There are some standards in Australia indicating where, when, and how TGSI’s should be installed.
However, you can use the following public areas as general guidelines for installing TGSI’s.
