How to Mark Different Width Road Line: Techniques and Methods

Table of Contents

If you wish to alter the line width of your road line marking machine, various techniques and methods are at your disposal. Refer to this article writen by Lighten Traffic on-site road marking pros for insight into the most prevalent methods and approaches for adjusting road line width.

Three Key Techniques for Marking Roadlines of Varied Widths

The most common road marking construction techniques encompass spraying, screeding, and convex road marking machines. These techniques diverge in terms of principles, paint, width, line type, and construction speed. A comprehensive exploration of these techniques follows below. Further delve into road marking construction methodologies:

Utilizing a Spray-Type Line Striper

Traffic paint road marking equipment finds its ideal embodiment in spray-type line stripers. As depicted in the image, this cold paint airless spraying road marking machine is in operation at a construction site. It accommodates the spraying of all liquid coatings, particularly those with good fluidity like cold solvent coatings and water-based coatings. Even thermoplastic coatings and two-component coatings can be effectively sprayed. Apart from the paint bucket and control system, the spraying-type road marking machine typically integrates a pumping system, pipes, and nozzles.

Advantages of spraying:

  1. Swift construction pace.
  2. Modest prerequisites for road surface flatness and cleanliness. Simple construction process.
  3. Line width adjustability through manipulation of the distance between the die shoe and the road surface.

Embracing a Screeding Type Line Striper

screeding type road marking machines

A thermoplastic screeding road marking machine operates at a construction site. The screeding method is employed for executing hot melt paints, such as thermoplastic road marking paint and two-component road marking paint. However, cold solvent-based road marking paint and water-based road marking paint are unsuitable for screeding-type road markers. The screeding-type machine employs a specialized marking shoe to uniformly apply the marking paint onto the road surface, akin to smoothing wet concrete with a flat iron.

The line width is constrained by the width of the marking plate. To modify the line width, substitution of the marking plate is necessary. Before utilizing the screeding machine for road surface marking, the road must be both clean and level. Despite its limitations, screeding marking yields impeccable lines and edges, making it presently the most favored road marking method.

Employing a Convex Type Line Striper

A thermoplastic convex road marking machine functions at a construction site. Comparable to the screeding technology, the convex line marker method accommodates the use of thermoplastic road marking paint and other malleable paints. The marking plate of the convex marking machine is more intricate than that of the leveling marking machine. The convex marker machine employs its distinct structure and control system to systematically produce small bumps on the road surface in a regular pattern. These raised bumps induce vibrations when vehicles pass over them, enhancing perceptibility.

Diverse Methods for Adjusting Roadline Width

  1. Adjusting Line Width with a Spraying Road Marking Machine

For a spraying road line marking machine, line width can be effortlessly tuned between 100mm and 1000mm by regulating the number of spray guns employed and altering the distance between the spray gun and the road surface.

  1. Adjusting Line Width with Screeding Type Road Marking Machines

With a leveling road line marking machine, different line widths can be achieved by simply substituting the marking shoes. Common road line widths encompass 100mm, 150mm, 200mm, 250mm, and 300mm. However, for thermoplastic zebra crossing line marking machines, line width is governed by the machine’s design, necessitating a distinct machine for other road lines.

  1. Adjusting Line Width with Convex Road Marking Machine

Similar to the leveling machine, a convex marking road line marking machine allows for line width modification through replacement of the marking shoes.

Spraying, leveling, and convex marking stand as the principal techniques for road line marking. Their distinctions encompass principles, paint, width, line type, and construction speed. For instance, while spraying offers swifter application and requires less stringent road surface conditions, leveling and convex marking deliver precision in line creation and edges.

In Conclusion

To establish road lines of diverse widths, you can adopt spray, screed, or convex-type road marking techniques. Line width adjustment can be executed by manipulating spray gun numbers, altering the distance between the spray gun and the road surface, or substituting marking shoes.
