CORE RoadEdge - Gravel Road Edge Stabiliser
CORE RoadEdge is most frequently specified for narrow roads, motorways and roads that experience high volumes of traffic on a daily basis. It’s designed as a gravel stabiliser that sits on the shoulder of the road, and due to its material being HDPE (High density polyethylene) and depth of cell, it can withstand all vehicle types making it a highly versatile product.
CORE RoadEdge is an economical way of achieveing the task of making roads wider, furthermore it is a product that improves the safety of roads and motorways as it offers a stable edge strip in which cars can use to move out of the way of traffic and offer them stability if they veer slightly off centre within the lane they are driving.
CORE RoadEdge can be installed to create stability and a solution to narrow or dangerous roads to provide more space for cars to operate and manouvere.
WHY IS CORE ROADEDGE USEFUL?
High Load Bearing
CORE RoadEdge’s grid design and construction provide cells of gravel which allow for extreme levels of pressure from vehicular traffic without the migration of the aggregte, thus making CORE RoadEdge a highly practical and versatile option to use on the sides of motorways and narrow roads that will experience a variety of traffic loads. The load bearing of CORE RoadEdge is a robust 260 tonne/sqm, enabling it to withstand all vehicular traffic that it may have to acommodate.
Prevention Over Repair
On roads that experience high volumes of traffic, cars driving over the edge of the road onto the verge and can cause costly damage. CORE RoadEdge is an economical and viable solution to preventing such damage – and the low weight of only 2.3kg per piece offers quick and easy installation. Deeply extended embankments caused by trucks, lorries and agriculture machinery pose a high accident risk. If smaller cars get off the lane, they run the risk of slipping onto the embankment and losing control. The plastic honeycomb structure generates a rise-over noise and warns the driver in good time to get off that part of road.
The individual pieces have connections at both short ends and are connected via the T pieces that connect together when one piece is laid underneath the one before it. The pieces are always laid into the loose installation bed and laying in the direction of the traffic is recommended due to other stages of the installation take place in the same direction. The T pieces of the panel on the short side are inserted into their counterparts on a previously installed panel at an angle of approximately 45 – 60° and then dropped into place.
The T-pieces always point opposite to the driving direction. The connection system automatically stabilises the panels in all directions during installation. Stepping onto the newly laid panel will fix the integrated ground spikes in the installation bed. The position of the panel in relation to the upper edge of the asphalt can be inspected afterwards and the installation bed adjusted where necessary.
