White Lining is the process that is done on roads to separate pathways. Many countries around the world have actually made white lining a compulsory act in order to avoid ambiguity within roads and to prevent accidents.
A major research paper submitted by environmental experts suggests that roads with better white lines have recorded less number of accidents than the roads that don’t.
The need for white lines is underrated. Assume that there is a newly constructed road. In that road, without white lines, you won’t be able to differentiate the lanes for vehicles, buses and pedestrians. Without these lines, a huge traffic blockage is always imminent.
In cities like Amsterdam, people usually prefer bikes as a mode of transport since it is hassle free and involves less operational cost. Now, without white lines in places like these, the bikers will be subjected to all sorts of pressure by the car and heavy duty vehicle drivers. That is when the white line dividers come into play. If you go to places like Amsterdam around the world, their roads will have a separate lane for the bikers.
To lay these lines, the white lining contractors use a material called as the thermoplastic screed. One of the greatest advantages of this material is the fact that it dries on contact. Another advantage is that this material satisfies the standards of both European and American certifications of safety and compliance.
Since it dries very quickly, it avoids the delay that is caused due to road maintenance. The material is also available in different reflective and non-reflective forms and therefore can be seen visibly even during night times.
However, screed in its natural form causes vehicles to skid right off the surface. That is why, Coldgrip, a thermoplastic resin is used in mixture with screed as a surfacing material to provide high friction. So, a mixture of coldgrip and screed can be used even on potentially hazardous roads to provide skid resistance.
The 2400 pipe renewal liner is a device that is used to excavate the existing pipelines. However, many companies around the world have come up with a hack through which they have made use of this device to white line the roads.
While choosing a contractor to white line your roads, it is important to make sure that they have enough experience. It is also wise to consider the advice of earlier customers to vet the contractors.
