TrafficPatterns is engineered as heavy-duty intersection grade pavement markings material with impressive durability. It provides a cost-effective alternative to the use of stamped concrete and pavers because the material is surface applied and virtually maintenance free. Available in 125-mil thicknesses, the 2 ft. x 2 ft. sheets of interconnected material are easily lifted and positioned onto an asphalt or concrete surface for application with a specialized infrared heating technology.
Engineered with safety, durability and aesthetics in mind, TrafficPatterns® is the surface solution designed to:
High Skid/Slip Resistant:
Skid resistance is maximized by adding anti-skid elements to the surface and the intermix of the material at the time of manufacturing. As the marking wears, new anti-skid elements are exposed.
TrafficPatterns® is engineered as heavy-duty intersection grade pavement material and can last 6 to 8 times longer than MMA or epoxy-coated surfaces. This material eliminates the maintenance and safety concerns of loose pavers and is snow plow friendly.
TrafficPatterns® comes pre manufactured and is simply placed on the existing pavement surface and using specialized heaters, quickly binding it to either asphalt or concrete surface. Very little mess and minimal traffic or community disruption.
TrafficPatterns® has the same surface characteristics as the pavement. Therefore, there is no additional vibration level or rigid bumpy effect as with pavers and imprints. Although virtually maintenance free, it’s easy and quick to repair with minimal traffic disruption. remove damage, apply sealer, replace with new material, and heat.
Ideal for commercial brand extension and community branding. Highly customizable in a wide range of available colours, TrafficPatterns® can be designed with your community or commercial brand image in mind.
All pavement markings TrafficPatterns® preformed thermoplastic materials are made at Flint’s manufacturing facility which is ISO 9001:2008 certified for design, development and manufacturing. Quality, value and long-term performance are built into the material.
