Looking for a way to increase line visibility and improve road safety?

Profiled road markings are the newest road marking technology where a part of the road marking typology is raised over the road surface. This type of markings are becoming more and more popular because of the increased road safety it provides due to high visibility in wet conditions and at night as well as the noise they produce when being driven on.

COME BY STAND Z2.A150 WHERE OUR SALES TEAM WILL BE HAPPY TO GIVE YOU MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE ADVANTAGES OF PROFILED MARKING.


NOISE ALERT TO AVOID RUN-OFF-ROAD COLLISIONS
In the video above you can see an example coming from the US where Boum BM 5000 DL machines are applying center lines formed of extruded thermoplastic dot markings as well as dot markings over ribs. This latter combination gives you the best of the two line types, with the rumble effect from the ribs and the retro-reflection from the dots. 
 
Such profiled center lines placed between opposing lanes of traffic are an efficient way of alerting drivers that they have crossed over into the path of oncoming traffic and act as countermeasures against run-off-the-road accidents and head-on collisions.


HIGH LINE VISIBILITY AT NIGHT TIME
Due to their shape and vertical walls, as well as the possibility of pre-mixing glass beads, profiled lines have a higher retro-reflective level compared to flat lines. This increases the visibility in poorly illuminated areas and during night time.
 
HIGH VISIBILITY DURING RAINY WEATHER
The drainage effect of the profiled markings ensures that rainwater will easily drain away from the lines. As a result, the lines are able to maintain high reflective values in rainy weather. This is possible thanks to the structure that allows the water to drain.
