Pavement Marking

Pavement Markings is a great way to promote public safety and observance of government rules and regulations.

 

 

Colorado Pro Stripe shows its support for traffic discipline by providing services in pavement markings.

They exist as codes to reinforce the aid rules or also give warnings to the driver without having to remove their attention from the road ahead. They are highly critical in providing guidance, so in general, they are an effective way of road safety assurance.

There are several types of pavement marking as defined by the US Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration Manual on Uniform Traffic Devices. The basic general principles that govern Traffic Devices include the following: color, width and number. The colors of standard marking are yellow or white. Longitudinal lines help designate traffic, whereas words and symbols are used as warnings. Blue and red are also used to designate parking for persons with disabilities and roadways that are no to be entered, respectively. The width of a line actually is used to drive the degree of emphasis, but the common center- and edgeline is within 4 to 6 inches wide. The number of lines, such as the double line, means that driving across them is prohibited.

Materials that we use depend on how much the budget is; how long it will last under the elements and traffic; the type of surface used in paving the road; and, how long it takes for the material to dry. Pavement marking deteriorate over time due to two major contributing factors: weather and heavy traffic. Therefore, a wide-range of materials has been developed for use in the pavement-marking industry: water-based paint, tapes, epoxy, and thermoplastics. We are knowledgeable about these materials and all other considerations and can definitely assist in your decision-making. It is important to make a choice that considers the lasting quality of the material, although this is not a guarantee that you will not have to have the markings redone. Typically, pavement marking require retouching every one to two years.

We make sure that we adhere to these government-initiated specifications in the creation of centerlines, edgelines, stop lines, yield lines and all other road warnings. We provide solutions to your pavement-marking needs to improve the circumstances of your area’s road travel and safety.
