Pedestrian crossing and braking zone increasing traffic safety

PlastiRoute® RollGrip® help increase traffic safety in Portugal

August 23, 2017

Four combined pedestrian crossings and braking zones in PlastiRoute® RollGrip® makes traffic safer for both pedestrians and drivers.

In Figueira da Foz, Portugal, the Habidom company has applied four combined pedestrian crossings and braking zones made of PlastiRoute® RollGrip®. The pedestrian crossings and braking zones measures 20 x 6.40 metres each and were applied at around 20° C. This temperature ensured a short curing time, which meant that traffic could be re-opened as soon as 30 minutes after application.

PlastiRoute® RollGrip® is a cold plastic material which is easy to apply - all you need is a mixer to mix the components, tape to mark up the area, and a roller to spread the cold plastic. PlastiRoute® RollGrip® contains skid resistant aggregates, which ensures an SRT value of up to 80. Therefore, there is no need to post sprinkle the marking to gain anti-slip properties. The non-slippery surface makes it safer for pedestrians to walk over the crossings and reduces the braking distance for cars in the braking zone.
