More Safety And Orientation On Airports
Markings on airports are a very economical contribution to the safety and orientation on airports, not only for planes on taxiways and runways but also for ground traffic vehicles. We integrate all factors that result in best-performing
airfield marking systems, including marking materials, reflective glass beads and application know-how.
Airports increase their safety by adopting quality systems for runways, taxiways and aprons.
Key Attributes of
High Quality Airport Markings
Our systems offer excellent retroreflection and night visibility on dry and wet surfaces due to innovative and clean SWARCO glass bead blends (various particle sizes, low and high index).
INNOVATION - MORE CONTRAST
Innovative formulas and, in some cases, coloured granular glass can be used in our marking systems as needed to adjust the shade of colour. The resulting marking symbols and lines appear much more vivid and rich in contrast.
Our products have been successfully tested by independent bodies for resistance against fuels, deicers, engine oils and hydraulic fluids and excel in their resistance to kerosene.
By choosing the right solutions from our wide range of products, complemented by various glass bead blends, excellent functionality and abrasion resistance of marking systems on airfields and runways, taxiways and aprons is achieved.
Apart from their stipulated product-specific characteristics, markings need to have sufficient adherence to the surface to avoid engine ingestion of loose marking material. The right choice for an optimum and economical marking system for the different areas depends on airport specifications and other prerequisites.
Our marking systems have been tested and approved by the German Federal Institute for Material Research and Testing in regard to colour standards according to DIN 5033, assessment according to ICAO – Annex 14 – Aerodromes and STANAG 3711. They also meet or exceed US Federal specification TT-B 1325D.
