Pavement and Maintenance

Photos: Conditions Six Years of Service before and after - Without Safety Edge (left); With Safety Edge (left)

The recommended practice of bringing the adjacent soil or aggregate material (unpaved shoulder or modified soil) flush with the top of the pavement often requires frequent maintenance. SafetyEdge℠ eliminates the vertical drop-offs along the pavement edge .

The SafetyEdge℠ improves density at the pavement edge, which makes the pavement more durable. Less frequent road maintenance may be needed as edge raveling is reduced.
