    Typical applications

    SteelStop Road Surfacing provides exceptional skid resistance and proven road safety advantages for high-risk areas such as traffic lights, pedestrian crossings, intersections, roundabouts and traffic black spots like winding roads and hazardous bends.

    Proven performance

    SteelStop has been tested to meet the stringent skid resistance values required for high friction surfacing.

    Laboratory trials at the University of Ulster and installations in the South Yorkshire area have shown that SteelStop satisfies the minimum Skid Resistance Value (SRV) of 70 in test conditions.

    Specimens have been subjected to a total of 100,000 wheel passes as required by the BBA, equivalent to traffic wear during 5 to 10 years in service life.

    In each case, SteelStop met the requirements for Type 1, 2 and 3 applications, proving its credentials as a durable and effective product.

    Performance statistics

    SteelStop has excellent environmental credentials and the advantages of renewable source material.

    With a growing market for High Friction Surfacing (HFS) materials, SteelStop scores above products using imported calcined bauxite. It uses locally available recycled steel slag material, minimizing its carbon footprint.

    Economic & environmental benefits

    SteelStop has attracted interest from local and regional councils due to the powerful combination of economic and environmental benefits. SteelStop also has international use potential due to its ease of transportation and application.

    Product Usage

    Supplied in dry form, SteelStop is easy to transport and fast and simple to lay, significantly reducing downtime for any project.

    Typical applications include approaches to traffic lights, pedestrian crossings and school zones, intersections and roundabouts, winding rural roads and hazardous bends.
