Recently we showcased some Imprinted Surfacing completed by our crews which received a few questions, so lets answer in more detail.
What is Imprinted Surfacing?
It’s a fantastic zero maintenance alternative to block paving which can be used in a multitude of areas such as, roads, pavements and driveways. Imprinted surfacing has a multitude of benefits with its aesthetically pleasing presence really complimenting the underlying brilliance of this product.
Whilst most the country is in lock down and many places remain closed, LMS Highways crews have been making use of the empty roads and car parks.
For many businesses having a car park lined or line markings refreshed can be a challenging task due to the inability to completely close off these areas to customers and staff. Usually this means our crews have to work around cars, cordoning off areas at a time. This can become quite timely and sometimes affect their ability to complete the job that day.
Social distancing safety markings look like they will be needed for quite a while yet. At the beginning of this pandemic, quick fix temporary tape and markings with spray paint were needed to keep everyone safe and hats off to everyone that’s done it.
However, we need to look at the fact that Covid-19 could be around for the next 6 – 18 months, so we need something that will last, look good and demonstrate that your business is taking this seriously.
These preformed safety markings were laid today by one of our crews (whilst maintaining social distancing). Preformed markings are great because not only are they visually pleasing they also have the following benefits:
- Hard-wearing and therefore long lasting
- Highly visible
- Customisable to your business
Have a look at the Government guidelines and if you would like to discuss what safety markings would be suitable for your business, give us a call on 01626 331 771.
It’s easy for us to take living in Devon for granted… but jobs like this make us fall in love with our county all over again! Surrounded by rolling hills and the beautiful North Devon coastline our crew spent a few days implementing various line marking for a valued customer.
Using white and yellow thermoplastic the team remarked approximately 300 parking bays and implemented a variety of additional line marking in order to create a safe, usable and more accessible space for vehicles.
With heavy moving vehicles and a large amount of foot traffic, health and safety markings were a top priority for Bradfords Building Supplies when preparing to open their new Helston branch.
Bradfords Building Supplies is one of the largest independent Builders Merchants in the UK. With over 40 branches throughout the South West, Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Bradfords will be kicking off its 250th year with a new branch in Helston, Cornwall.
Similarly to LMS Highways, Bradfords aims to be the leading privately owned company in their industry. Striving to provide expert advice, carefully selected product ranges, responsive services and consistently good value to customers, from well trained and motivated employees.
Safety markings are essential within potentially dangerous environments such as a busy warehouse with moving equipment like forklift trucks.
Due to this, a Bridgewater based company required various markings across their site. Our Newton Abbot crews installed new and refreshed safety markings throughout their warehouse and service yard.
Busy high-street in Newquay receives imprinted surfacing which offers a fantastic, zero maintenance alternative to block paving in urban areas.
LMS Highways recently installed 90m2 of imprinted surfacing on Bank Street, Newquay. Imprinted surfacing has a multitude of benefits with its aesthetically pleasing presence really complementing the underlying brilliance of this product.
LMS Highways recently visited Princess Yachts– Plymouth, established in 1964 this is the largest Princess dealer and distributor in the world.
