It's time for safety, health and environment to take the front seat
At Geveko Markings, we believe that everybody should be able to feel safe in traffic. No matter which means of transportation you use, there should be room for you on the roads.
This is a growing issue especially in the increasingly populated cities, and micromobility offers one of the solutions to this problem.
This concept helps increase safety for especially the vulnerable road users, while at the same having a positive effect on health issues, the environment and the increasingly intense traffic flow.

Get moving with micromobility
If you are looking for concrete guidelines on how to implement micromobility markings, look no further. We got you covered!
In cooperation with Copenhagenize Design Co., we have developed a complete micromobility planning toolbox. With this in hand, you will be equipped with concrete expert advice on how the right kind of markings can increase safety for cyclists and other micromobility users.
Bikes are a big part of micromobility, but it covers other modes of electric or human powered transport as well. Micromobility vehicles are usually characterised by going at a low (25 km/h) to medium (45 km/h) speed and includes for example e-bikes and e-scooters.
The purpose of micromobility markings is to separate vehicles in this category from the rest of the road where cars and other engine powered vehicles are usually dominant.
In order to become a strong alternative to traditional modes of traffic, micromobility infrastructure needs to be developed so that it is easy, logical and not least safe to use.
Whether being coloured areas, clearly marked out routes and directions or safe parking guidance, micromobility markings allow the more vulnerable road users to ride safely at their own speed. This creates less risks of accidents without affecting the flow of road traffic.
Clearly marked out lanes also makes it easier for motorists to judge how much space to allow when passing a bicycle, preventing them from swerving into the cyclist’s space.
The United Nations predicts that by the year 2030, about 60 % of the global population will live in cities.
This is expected to put increased pressure on the urban infrastructure that will need to be adapted to keep up with this development – and micromobility can be part of a possible solution.
Many cities are in full swing future-proofing their infrastructure - check out these examples and be inspired by their micromobility initiatives.
Paris is leading the way on the road to becoming a “15 minute city” in which you are able to go anywhere in the city in a quarter of an hour. Many other cities are following suit - and to achieve this bicycle and pedestrian paths are often the first measures.
As a result of a dedicated Bicycle Strategy launched in 2015, Oslo has in recent years experienced a significant progress when it comes to more cycling.
In Finland, Helsinki is investing in progressive cycling infrastructure to reach its goal of becoming ‘the most functional city in the world’, and be carbon neutral by 2035. One of the inititives being a newly built bicycle tunnel beneath the central station.
Everything you need for your micromobility applications
Country specific symbols
With our PREMARK™ preformed material, we are able to supply any symbol that conform to individual national or regional design manuals.
The PREMARK symbols are quick and easy to apply and do not require any investment in expensive equipment. The ready-to-use marking is applied by help of a heat torch and can be laid all year round. The only requirement is a dry application surface, which the heat torch can easily provide.
Our range of safety marking materials, provide a cost-effective and fast-drying solution. Our cold plastic PlastiRoute™ material and waterborne AquaRoute™ paint are both ideal for area applications.
Unique crosslinking technology provides long-term stability, fast drying time, skid resistance and color stability. Both AquaRoute and PlastiRoute has a consistent intermix of anti-skid aggregate which means it eliminates the need to post-sprinkle anti-skid aggregates during the application process.
When using the AreaSpray™ machine (available through Geveko Markings), the material is sprayed in an even and consistent pattern. This creates a strong texture with superior skid resistance - even in wet conditions. It also enables a quicker application, saving both man hours and time for closed traffic.
By combining colour demarcation products
with preformed thermoplastic, you get a complete solution for your micromobility lane project.
Custom design of your PREMARK™
Our material can be designed to fit all requirements. In fact, the only limit is your imagination. Our modern and flexible manufacturing facilities enable us to react quickly to special requests and our long experience allows us to provide high-quality, flexible and easy-to-apply materials.
The composition of the thermoplastic marking provides a high UV resistance, which means that colours stay bright for longer.
