The LMS team are vastly experienced when it comes to removing damaged sections of carriageway, runway or taxiway and reinstating. This work is often carried out under a night closure. The damaged concrete bay is pre-cut into four sections and removed using a five-tonne vacuum plate.
The dowels are drilled using an EZ drill, AKA a slab riding rig. The bay is reinstated using a rapid curing concrete and cured ready to hand back the repaired area. Altogether this process is carried out and ready for opening within an impressive six-hour period.
Bays will be removed and reinstated within 6 hours
No need for long concrete curing periods
Long expected service life
Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement- CRCP
CRCP is constructed with steel reinforcing bars placed within the concrete, continuously along the entire length of the pavement without any transverse joints. The result is a continuous, smooth-riding surface capable of withstanding the heaviest traffic loads and the most adverse weather conditions. Because of its greater durability, longer life expectancy and minimal maintenance requirements, CRCP provides the best long-term value of any pavement type.
Crack & Joint Repairs
Cracks in the road are mostly caused by wear and tear from heavy traffic, these cracks and fretted joints need to be sealed to prevent water ingress into the road surface and thus help prolong the life of the carriageway.
Our modern plant offers both hot and cold applied BBA HAPAS material solutions for long lasting repairs on tarmac and concrete surfaces.
Localised repairs to carriageway slabs can provide several technical issues hence why whole slabs have previously been replaced rather than repaired. Our solution incorporates cementitious and hot applied materials that repair full depth slabs (including below the rebar) to depths in excess of 300mm, yet can still be installed and opened to traffic within 2-3 hours.
Thin Bond Repair
Used for fixing thin surface cracking due to pavement movement, repairing broken slab corners and to reform levels between adjacent slabs with modern BBA HAPAS materials and dedicated plant.
Offering a variety of cost-effective systems for joints using both hot and cold sealants including saw cut & seal, kerb edge sealing and mastic joint sealing for slot drain repair and gantry walls etc.
Suitable for narrow cracks up to 5mm wide. Fast to install, seal and prevents water ingress and is a low cost preventative maintenance tool.
Fill & Overband
For cracks up to 40mm wide, prevents water ingress while reinstating the surface profile and preventing long term skid resistant values (SRV).
Suitable for either single or multiple cracks, typically installed at widths of 100-250mm wide and 20-40mm deep. Used to repair cracks and fretted joints that are at risk of degenerating into more expensive repairs.
Designed to be installed before an asphalt overlay, a variety of screed or recessed layers to help prevent reflective cracking and seal the joint in the surfacing layer below the wearing course to prevent water ingress.
