Superior Design Provides More Reliable Visibility
When it comes to giving drivers a greater edge toward safety, NDM, INC. moves to the forefront with an improved raised pavement marking system that provides critical advantages for drivers on high-speed freeways and highways. Series 290 raised pavement markers are extremely valuable as lane line supplements to enhance pavement markings in non-snowplow markets. They stand out above the lines to alert motorists to roadway changes such as hills, curves and exit ramps and improve lane line guidance. Designed for application on asphalt and portland cement concrete road surfaces, these markers provide highly effective, long-life visibility – particularly at night and in wet weather. The marker’s high-performance lens yields high-intensity retro-reflected light when illuminated by car headlights. Whereas traditional raised pavement markers are equipped with a basic molded lens, Series 290 markers feature a tough polycarbonate lens with built in micro cube corners. This improved ceramer-coated lens is highly resistant to abrasion and cracking, conditions which can dull the performance of a standard lens. In effect, the marker yields greater clean ability, increased brightness and high retained retro-reflectivity. The markers are available in color combinations that comply with federal guidelines. Colored markers help identify traffic lane separations, edge lines, fire hydrants, airport taxiways and other special applications. In addition to the visual alert, a “rumble” sound caused by the vehicle tires crossing the raised markers gives motorists an audible warning. As a result, Series 290 marking systems increase awareness and guide drivers with safer, more visible lines in rain or fog, day or night.
Tough Construction Gives Longer-Lasting Performance
The computer-aided design body combined with innovative materials give the Series 290 marker its strength. Manufactured from a high-impact-resistant resin, the inner-ribbed contour of the marker is shaped to dissipate tire impact, increase strength and reduce damage. The tough retro-reflective lens is coated with a superior protective material that combines ceramic and polymeric elements, adding more resistance to abrasion. The result is a marker that demonstrates high impact strength and holds up longer on today’s heavily traveled freeways and urban streets.
Shape and Weight Make Application Easier
Molded into its superior body design, finger grips aid the application process. The Series 290 marker is lightweight and is compatible with all commercially available epoxy and bitumen road marker adhesive systems.
