PAVEMENT REINFORCEMENT SOLUTIONS

Reflective cracking in the road surface is a significant problem and a major drain on public funds. Asphalt Reinforcement Services offer geosynthetic and steel mesh systems to provide the sustainable solution. A reinforced overlay may improve pavement life by up to a factor of 7. Customers using our reinforcement systems receive a huge return on investment over the whole life of the pavement with reduced maintenance.

  • GLASGRID® – the sustainable solution to reflective cracking
  • Reduces maintenance intervals and costs 
  • Designed to extend pavement life
  • Full supply and install service

SURFACE DRESSING TO THE HIGHEST INDUSTRY STANDARDS

Used at the right time and applied in the correct way, surface dressing can extend the life of the carriageway well in excess of 10-15 years.* Carriageway life can be enhanced still further using a non-woven geosynthetic interlayer which is laid ahead of the surface dressing process. Asphalt Surface Dressing have unique expertise offering a fully integrated service installing both the non-woven paving fabric interlay and the surface dressing.

  • Fully integrated service
  • Install both a geosynthetic interlayer and surface dressing
  • Cost-efficient solution extending the life of a pavement
  • CE Marking EN12271:2006 Surface Dressing

*Medium to high traffic 10 years; low to medium traffic 15 years RSTA/ADEPT

ASPHALT PRESERVATION SERVICES

Why keep replacing asphalt when you can double its life for 30% of the replacement cost with Rhinophalt® supplied and installed by Asphalt Preservation Services. Rhinophalt® is a preventative maintenance treatment that preserves, protects and extends the life of asphalt reducing the need for reactive maintenance. The treated road surface looks new, retains the original surface characteristics and can be treated every 5 years.

  • Preserves, protects and extends pavement life
  • Reduces the demand for reactive maintenance
  • Provides twice the life for 30% of the replacement cost
  • Suitable for night time working minimising traffic disruption

IMPROVE PAVEMENT PERFORMANCE WITH GLASGRID® GG (SELF-ADHESIVE)

 

glasgrid-gg-self-adhesive

When you need to control crack growth, GlasGrid® GG self adhesive range offers a solution that extends pavement life, improves efficiency and delays interventions.

The unique feature of the GlasGrid® Geogrid, is that as well as being suitable for application on all asphalt and concrete pavements, it can also be used on cracks that have been caused by uneven settlement. The GlasGrid® system can easily be used on joints in concrete pavements therefore providing improved pavement performance.

GLASGRID® GG50 (8550)
Roll size: 150m and 1.5m wide
Grid size: 25mm x 25mm

GLASGRID® GG100 (8501)
Tensile strength: 115 x 115 ± 15 kN/m
Tensile elongation: 2.5% ± 0.5%.
Roll size: 100m x 1.5m
Grid size: 12.5mm x 12.5mm

GLASGRID® GG200 (8502)
Tensile resistance: (at 2% strain) 95 x 180 ± 20 kN/m.
Roll size: 60m long x 1.5m and also has a pressure sensitive adhesive backing.
GG200 boasts a less than 5% chance of becoming damaged during installation.

 

GLASGRID® COMPOGRID (CG) NONWOVEN PAVING FABRIC

GLASGRID® COMPOGRID (CG) NONWOVEN PAVING FABRIC

Extending pavement life is key to cash savings, increased efficiency and delayed interventions. GlasGrid® CompoGrid (CG) is a geosynthetic pavement reinforcement and moisture barrier system designed to do just that. The system adds another choice to the proven GlasGrid® system, by integrating it with a nonwoven paving fabric.

GLASGRID® COMPOGRID CG50
Tensile strength: 55 x 55 ± 5 kN/m
Tensile elongation: 2.5% ± 0.5%
Roll size: 95m x 1.5m wide and covers 142.5m²

GLASGRID® COMPOGRID CG100
Tensile strength: 115 x 115 ± 15 kN/m
Tensile elongation: 2.5% ± 0.5%.
Roll size: 70m x 1.5m

GLASGRID® COMPOGRID CG200
Tensile strength: 115 x 215 ± 15 kN/m
Tensile elongation: 2.5% ± 0.5%
Roll size: 60m long x 1.5m wide and covers an area of 90m².

 

GLASGRID® GRIDSEAL®

GLASGRID® GRIDSEAL®

Developed using a composite of GlasGrid® and a membrane of polymer-modified bitumen, GlasGrid® GridSeal provides an unparalleled level of protection against reflective cracking as well as a watertight seal over underlying layers.

This innovative system offers the longest extension in pavement life. Depending on circumstances, GlasGrid® is covered with hot sprayed polymer modified bondcoat and then treated with crushed aggregate or the polymer modified bondcoat is applied before CompoGrid® is installed.

 

GLASGRID® INDICATOR MESH

GLASGRID® INDICATOR MESH

When it comes to one of the most vulnerable areas in highway maintenance, bridge decks, GlasGrid® Indicator Mesh is an ideal reinforcement choice.

Bridge structures and the waterproofing membranes laid on their decks, are one of the most exposed areas when it comes to maintaining a safe and reliable road surface. The GlasGrid® Indicator Mesh system is a highly visible means of protection and is an effective alternative to coloured asphalt. It is a great way to reduce costs when needing to warn resurfacing teams that they are approaching the waterproofing membrane on the bridge deck.

 

GLASGRID® RAPID REPAIR – PG100

GLASGRID® RAPID REPAIR – PG100

The all in one detailed repair system for any surface – including concrete. Asphalt Reinforcement Services proudly introduces its innovative fibreglass solution for detailed asphalt reinforcement; GlasGrid® Rapid Repair PG100.

The composite geogrid reinforcement system of the GlasGrid® Rapid Repair PG100, consists of a high tensile fibreglass grid, which in turn is coated with a patented elastomeric polymer and works alongside a non-woven fabric. The grid size is 25 x 25mm making this composition the ideal choice when considering how to reduce costs in reactive maintenance, without sacrificing quality.
