SEAL COAT – Preventative Maintenance

Why Seal?

Protection

Due to the nature of asphalt, over time it begins to oxidize and appear gray. This is the best time to apply one or two coats of SEAL. Even if the asphalt has deteriorated to the point of unraveling, where loose aggregate or stones appear, it is still a good starting point to seal, as long as no visible cracking has occurred and the asphalt is still in good condition.

Cost Effectiveness

Allowing the asphalt to age without maintenance allows water to collect and penetrate the surface. Once water damages the base or sub base, the asphalt will crack or alligator. If visible cracking has occurred then major repairs are needed. Regular asphalt maintenance with SEAL can prolong the life of your asphalt at a fraction of the cost.

Aesthetics

SEAL COATING adds property value and overall appearance with a rich black finish.

Striping

Paint Striping

Paint striping is normally done after a seal coat but customers are looking for corporative image.
Most common colors are white, yellow and green, blue for all ADA compliance. Parking Lots are usually spray painted to 4” single lines or double lines, road surface marking paint; arrows, names, numbers, etc.

Thermoplastic Striping

Thermoplastic road marking paint – also called hot melt marking paint, is a kind of powder paint. When applied as road surface markings, a hot melt kettle is used to heat it to 200 °C (392 °F), after which it is sprayed on the road surface. The coating then becomes a line after cooling. This paint is thick coating, wear-resisting, bright and reflective. In recent years, practical applications have proved that the marking lines lack certain surface roughness and can easily cause wheel slip, resulting in a traffic accident in snow and rainy weather. Therefore, some countries once restricted the use of this paint. In order to increase the antiskid performance of the line, thermoplastic paint has added reflective glass beads. Thermoplastic can be used very effectively for large Anti-skid areas on roads and pedestrian walkways by adding glass beads. It can be produced in any color and is great for car parks , factory walkways and many other areas. It’s fast drying and can be driven over after just a few minutes.

Sinage

The development of an effective parking lot sign program requires the coordination of several interrelated criteria. An effective sign program must have to take into account the following:

1. Circulation system in the parking lot. 2. How do visitors currently drive around and through the parking lot? 3. Where do you want visitors to park? Where do you want staff to park? Where is disabled access parking? 4. What is the desired path of travel on the roadway system, to parking, for visitors and staff? 5. What is the desired path of pedestrian travel from parking to building entrances? 6. Location of building entrances in relation to parking. 7. What is the availability and voltage of electricity at these areas? 8. Adequate light on and around directional signs. 9. Placement of signs in locations where people expect signage.

These elements help establish the basis of a clear sign program that communicates and informs in a direct and simple manner. A parking lot sign program that works well is one that has been planned as an integrated whole from the vehicle directional signs, pedestrian directional signs, building, and building entrance identification through parking lot exit signs. Another important consideration is that a parking lot sign program needs to be planned in accord with a cohesive organized parking plan for both visitors and staff. The parking lot sign program needs to be coordinated with an organized parking plan for both visitors and staff. Visitors will need way finding information, whereas staff will not. In split use parking facilities where a section will be designated as “visitor parking” and another section will be designated as “staff parking”, only the visitor parking section will require way finding signage.

Wheel Stops

Parking Curbs/Bumpers

Precast concrete parking curbs/ bumpers to retail and industrial customers, building contractors and real estate developers across the USA. Also known as wheel stops, parking chocks, curb stops and bumper blocks, these are designed to protect a large array of structures and other parked from being struck by vehicular traffic.

Protection

Precast concrete parking curbs / bumpers are installed to protect a large variety of structures from accidental vehicular impact. Concrete parking curbs are commonly used in retail businesses, schools, churches and public parking lots to protect signage, utility poles, shopping carts, garbage receptacles and other parked vehicles. The concrete parking curbs are also used to line sidewalks to protect pedestrians from vehicular traffic.

Concrete Grinding

TRIP HAZARD REMOVAL – Tree Roots, Weather, And Soil Settlement Are The PRIMARY Causes Of RAISED SIDEWALKS!
Raised sidewalks create TRIP HAZARDS causing INJURIES
INJURIES result in LAWSUITS

GBR Concrete Sidewalk Grinding uses a Precision Concrete Cutting Method for removing trip hazards from uneven sidewalks and other concrete walkways. The Precision Concrete Cutting Method has been used across the nation for over fifteen years. We’ll help bring your sidewalks in compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) with a method more effective and less expensive than conventional scrabbles, concrete grinders, or removal and replacement.

Common Causes of Trip Hazards
Concrete sidewalk raises elevation due to the following:

1. Tree roots growing under slabs pushing upwards
2. Heaving and settling due to frost
3. Buckling due to displacement of sub base
4. These changes in elevation causes Trip Hazards and may result in serious injuries that affect:
5. Pedestrians with mobility impairments: difficulty lifting feet, or crutches which can cause trips and falls
6. Pedestrians with visibility impairments: difficulty detecting changes in elevation which can cause trips and falls
7. Pedestrians with wheel chairs or wheel chair riders: difficulty with or inability to roll over steep changes in elevation

Keep the Sidewalk, Remove the Liability

This ensures an ADA Compliant slope of 1:8 on sidewalk panels and 1:12 slope on handicap accessible areas.

ADA Compliance

GBR Concrete Sidewalk Grinding ensures the experience and expertise to comply with Federal Law and protect your Property assets.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 defines a ‘trip hazard’ as any vertical change of over 1/4 inch or more at any joint or crack.
