The Raynes Rail is a tactile and voice output orientation aid and an exhibit accessibility system designed for people who are blind or have low vision. The Raynes Rail can be installed in a variety of environments to provide audible and braille navigation and orientation information at strategic points.

Lengths and other dimensions are customized for each location. COLOR: Metallic gray; powder coating with custom colors is available.
