SWARCO DURALUX The next generation of glass beads
The study “Investigation of longitudinal pavement marking retro reflectivity and safety” (Carlson, Park & Kang, 2013) verifies that every 100 mcd /m²*lx increase in retroreflection reduces the risk of accidents by up to 8.6 percent.
The SWARCO DURALUX bead brings the results of this study to the road. Thanks to its excellent retroreflectivity, this bead substantially increases road safety and can save lives. Particularly at night and in foggy or rainy weather, road markings can be
seen much more clearly – precisely when they are most important to road users! The reflectivity (RL value) of SWARCO DURALUX is outstanding.
