Specifications for a ticket validator: "Un traitement spécifique du sol au droit des valideurs permettra aux malvoyants de localiser ces derniers." Anything more elegant than "specific floor treatment"? TIA.

traitement spécifique du sol
special floor surfacing


Explanation:
In this sort of expression, I think that 'special' actually works better; and presumably this is texture rather than anything else, so I'm almost inclined to go for 'surfacing' instead of 'surface treatment' --- or maybe keep it simple as just 'special surface'
