Adding an extra dimension in Dubai
13 February 2020
3D markings are becoming increasingly popular - and now Dubai is also joining in. This PREMARK® crossing was recently applied and is the first of its kind in the city.
We are proud to say that we have helped add an extra dimension to the road markings in Dubai – and we mean that quite literally. In collaboration with TST Road & Area Marking LLC, we were responsible for applying the first 3D crossing in Dubai. The marking is made of our well-known, highly durable PREMARK® material and was applied to add extra focus on the pedestrians crossing the street.
At Geveko Markings, safety always comes first! We believe, that pedestrians should be able to feel safe when crossing the street and therefore we continue to test and develop solutions that can ensure just that. These striking markings are just one example. They appear to be floating in the air due to the special design of the PREMARK® material. The design utilises the principles of anamorphic illusion, which means that when seen from a specific angle the 3D effect stands out.
The striking look of the marking help keep drivers alert when reaching a crossing. Initial research and tests of this type of marking shows that it has a positive effect on getting drivers to slow down.
