MMAX Joint Repair Extruder celebrates 5 year anniversary!
Posted by Danny Corder on Wed 26th July 2017
Our amazing MMAX joint repair extruder has been operating across the UK for 5 years and we thought we'd celebrate with a reminder of how revolutionary the award-winning MMAX continues to be.
MMAX is our revolutionary and exclusive, machine-based joint repair system, designed to seamlessly repair fretted joints in carriageways. The hard-wearing, resin based, lorry-mounted extrusion system is 100% BBA HAPAS approved and has been recognised for its excellence as winner of Highways Excellence Awards "Product of the Year" 2012. The groundbreaking system builds upon LMS Highways' years of experience and expertise at the forefront of joint repair on UK roads.

With laying speeds up to six times faster than application by hand and with no need for operatives in the carriageway, the automated machine application is safer, more efficient and more cost effective than traditional methods.
MMAX can be utilised in a number of TM setups. If the road and joint layout does not allow for a standard static closure with a 1.2m safety zone then either a mobile lane closure with crash cushion or a static closure with convoy working may be used - a benefit of not having any operatives in the carriageway.
MMAX is the complete joint repair solution, the process starts with a custom blower/drier that lifts any road debris from the joint being repaired and also dries the opening and a strip of road surface either side of the joint. This is then followed by the repair screed and overscatter aggregate to seal the joint and provide a textured, skid resistant finish. By aligning these processes on one vehicle works can continue even in inclement weather, as the screed unit is right behind the drying apparatus.

LMS Highways are uniquely placed to offer a typical saving of between 10-15% when we supply more than one service, e.g. MMAX joint repair followed by road marking reinstatement. That means a great discount and a joined up service for better accountability and reduced closure times. Call us on 01626 331771.
