Table of Contents

Are you feeling overwhelmed with the numerous road marking equipment options available? Don’t worry, Lighten Traffic , a road marking machine supplier is here to help. Whether you’re new to the road marking industry or any traffic safety construction industry, we’ve got you covered. Here are some steps you can take to select the right equipment for your project:

Determine the Using Road Paint Types

There are two basic categories of road marking paints: thermoplastic paints and cold paints (water-based/solvent-based/two-component) . Your location may have different standards of road marking paints, so it’s important to consider this when making your selection.

Consider the Volume of Your Project

Think about the total length of road marking lines and the period of construction for your project. This will help you choose the right road marking equipment for your needs. Choose the right machine based on the volume of your work. For example, if you need to mark a long highway using thermoplastic paint, we recommend the big-size driving-type thermoplastic road marking machine.

Decide on Various Road Line Marking Requirements

There are various line types to choose from, such as solid, dashed, zebra crossing, or vibrating (convex) lines. Determine which type of line you need for your project:

Let Lighten Traffic Help Choose the Best Road Marker Machine Accordingly for you

There are more to consider when choosing line striping equipment. If you’re using thermoplastic road marking paint, we recommend purchasing a pre-heater in addition to the thermoplastic marking machine. Pre-heaters are matched with thermoplastic road marking machines and used for melting thermoplastic paint, saving fuel energy and heating time, and improving construction efficiency.

What’s more, you may need road marking auxiliary equipment such as sweepers, blowers, marking removal machines, and pre-marking (waterline) machines. These can help reduce overall construction costs, improve efficiency and quality, and increase safety and environmental protection.

With all these considerations in mind, you can confidently select the right road-marking equipment for your project. Otherwise, send us your detailed line marker requirements and our expert will help with a final decision!
