Installation and Materials

Safe Steps for Schools™  comprises long-lasting, non-toxic, cost-effective crossings that are environmentally friendly. Using preformed thermoplastic materials, the application process involves administering a specialised primer and then laying premade thermoplastic pieces in place (like a jigsaw) on top of the road surface. The preformed material is bonded to the surface through heat application. The materials provide premium high UV resistant colours with a lifespan ten times longer than traditional paints, and is complemented by an anti-slip coating. The paints used in the materials are non-toxic and contain no lead or chromates to ensure the safety of children. Furthermore, using preformed Thermoplastic enables intricate, complex designs to be created and is a material much easier to lay as opposed to other materials that require hand application. Using preformed thermoplastic as the crossing material is also less time-consuming, and therefore causes less disruption to traffic.
