Temporary Pavement Markings
Temporary Pavement Markings are a different animal... often times used during traffic switches or new construction. What makes it so difficult to accomplish well is the manpower, experience and equipment that is required, and usually in a finite amount of time - something that Kolbe Striping has perfected.
Basic paint can be used for both temporary and more durable applications, depending on vehicle counts. Paint is the most economical when it comes to temporary solutions, but may not always be the right choice if weather and heavy traffic come into play.
When paint is applied, it is immediately followed with a glass bead to provide reflectivity at night.
Kolbe Striping provides a fleet of paint trucks geared towards temporary solutions, staffed with experienced co-workers that are well versed in construction phasing (to help get your project done on time), as well as layout and product placement (so that not only is it done on time, it also looks good).
When paint won't hold up to the traffic and weather, it may be time to look at a more durable option to help ensure drivers have the proper lane delineation during the construction phasing.
Epoxy paint is sprayed followed by a glass bead to ensure reflectivity.
With 4 Epoxy Trucks at our disposal, as well as a smaller "hand application" truck, we are capable of handling any size project at any time.
Don't forget Way finding and Pedestrian Markings
Way finding and Pedestrian Markings are important, but even more so during busy construction projects. Way finding markings designate turn lanes or lane drops in lanes that the drivers knew just yesterday may have be a continuous lane. It's important to help drivers understand the changes and direction to their destination.
Pedestrians are a liability in construction zones. Help them reach their destination by providing designated crosswalks and markings to help them understand where they are supposed to be - while not getting in the way of your busy schedule.
KSI is happy to help meet compliance with these difficult tasks by providing temporary markings that meet the need, while being economical to the budget.
