Construction Zone Road Marking Guide: Ensuring Safety and Compliance

construction zone marking system

01. Introduction

Construction zones play a critical role in the design and construction of buildings, and the proper marking of these areas is essential for ensuring the safety of motorists and pedestrians. Adhering to the relevant standards and regulations during road marking is crucial, along with considering the safety of the construction site. By following the required standards and specifications, construction zone markings can provide convenience and safety for everyone’s travel.

02. Main Considerations for Construction Zone Marking

Construction zone road markings encompass various elements such as lane markings, pedestrian crossings, intersection markings, speed limit markings, and parking lines. These markings must meet specific requirements regarding color, shape, length, width, and spacing.

For hot melt markings, the theoretical consumption is around 200m² per ton (40 bags) of marking material, with a standard thickness of 1.8mm and a line width of 0.15m. Additional materials required include base oil (36kg or 2 barrels) and glass beads (100kg or 4 bags). One ton of marking material requires approximately one bottle of liquefied gas (14-15kg) for melting. The maintenance cycle for hot melt markings is typically between 3-5 years.

Solvent-based markings, on the other hand, have a theoretical consumption of approximately 2400m² per ton (based on a thickness of 0.4-0.5mm and film thickness of 0.3mm-0.9mm). The actual consumption may vary depending on the specific construction conditions. The maintenance cycle for solvent-based markings is usually around 2-3 years.

03. Effective construction zone pavement marking techniques

Depending on the surface conditions, construction zone markings are typically categorized into two types: hot melt markings and solvent-based markings. while solvent-based markings are suitable for indoor surfaces. When using hot melt markings, reflective glass beads are added to enhance nighttime visibility. However, if solvent-based markings are used, consideration should be given to their weather resistance, as they may deteriorate over time due to prolonged exposure to sunlight.

For hot melt markings, equipment options include hydraulic melters, electric-driven hot melt striping machines, hand-push hot melt striping machines, self-propelled raised oscillating striping machines, and hand-push raised oscillating striping machines. Additional auxiliary equipment includes road blowers, road sweepers, grinding machines, high-pressure waterline removers, layout machines, base oil machines, rollers, and striping buckets of various sizes (10cm, 15cm, 20cm, 30cm, 45cm).

Solvent-based markings typically require a road striping machine, which can be either high-pressure airless or low-pressure air-assisted, depending on the specific striping method.
