03. Best Solutions for School Road Markings

Based on the surface conditions, there are two primary options for school road markings: thermoplastic striping and cold solvent striping.

Thermoplastic striping is ideal for outdoor areas, such as asphalt surfaces and concrete pavements. During the application process, thermoplastic materials are heated and applied to the surface, ensuring durability and enhanced nighttime visibility. Recommended equipment for thermoplastic striping includes hydraulic melters, electric-driven machines, or hand-push machines.

Cold solvent striping is commonly used for indoor areas, such as gymnasium floors or artificial turf surfaces. This method involves the use of solvent-based paint, which provides a smooth and long-lasting finish. Cold solvent striping machines, such as high-pressure airless or low-pressure air-assisted systems, are typically used for this application.

04. School striping equipment and supplies

To achieve accurate and precise school road markings, the following equipment and supplies are commonly used:

Line Striping Machines: Hydraulic melters, electric-driven machines, hand-push machines, high-pressure airless systems, and low-pressure air-assisted systems.

Auxiliary Equipment: Road blowers, surface sweepers, grinding machines, high-pressure water line removers, layout markers, primer machines, rollers, and various line striping attachments (10cm, 15cm, 20cm, 30cm, 45cm).

05. Maintain school pavement markings regularly

The recommended repainting intervals for school road markings are typically around 3-5 years, depending on factors like traffic volume and weather conditions. Regular maintenance, including surface cleaning and preparation, is essential before repainting.
