Access road plates for drilling and boring
Are swamps used to create a temporary access road to a remote location?
How do I transport vehicles to a construction site to a remote location or across a field?
The site survey team required country-wide access for their vans, oil rigs, and other company vehicles to reach a remote location.
Attempting to cross inaccessible, undulating fields would cause serious ruts and costly ground damage, not to mention delays and downtime in the project.
Can a road plate provide a cost effective solution?
After visiting and evaluating the site, we recommended road slabs as the ideal solution for creating a temporary access road.
Light, portable and easy to lay road slabs by hand without the need for expensive lifting equipment, the high grip road mats are designed to follow the contours of undulating ground.
The team was thrilled with our easy-to-maneuver reusable solution, which was set up quickly and hassle-free, allowing immediate access to the terrain for vehicles over rough terrain.
Advantages of road plates
Road slabs are an economical and time-effective option for laying unheated roads on the ground. The structure is based on stabilization by means of galvanized steel pipes 1.5 m long and 20/25 mm in diameter. Composite panels (wood chips, stone) are attached to the lower side of the pipes. When laying such a plate, it is recommended to follow the installation guidelines of an engineer or to hire a specialist for this work.
Examples of the use of road plates
Road slabs are suitable for strengthening temporary roads, heliports, airport runways, ski resort areas and all kinds of parking lots. Thanks to the double-sided ribbing of the boards, they can also be used in pedestrian zones or in sports arenas to create non-slip surfaces. The main application, however, is the production of parking lots and squares.
Road plates and ecology
The boards are made of recycled materials, which ensures a "green" structure. The plastic they are made of can be reused
in a different product so you can give them a "second life". The road plates are easy to install and remove, making them easy to transport and handle
from one place to another.
Road slabs are made of high-quality polyurethane material with a hardness of 90 Shore, making them particularly suitable for filling areas that have not been consolidated by natural processes and for strengthening terrain to increase the degree of consolidation.
Their thin sections also minimize the deformation of the substrate during use, facilitating the smooth passage of specialized equipment around the site.
They are also suitable for under-floor insulation in buildings.
Do road plates increase the comfort of work?
Road slabs are used to provide a flat, level surface for pedestrian or vehicle traffic on uneven terrain. Our road plates are specially designed for use on the road or in industrial areas where safety and reliability are paramount.
Our proven design incorporates a double-sided plate that is lower than the ground to assist with foot traffic and taller to ensure that vehicles do not leave the road. This provides safer conditions for all users of the area at affordable costs. Road slabs are a convenient solution in places where you cannot drive on lawns or boulevards. Unlike traditional road plates, the SafeWay plate is designed with double-sided plates.
This innovative technology makes the product safer and more comfortable for both pedestrian and wheeled traffic.
FAQ most frequently asking questions
What is the prefabricated road slab used for ?
A prefabricated road slab is a building element that is used for the construction of temporary and permanent road surfaces, car parks and other road surfaces. Prefabricated road slabs are manufactured from concrete or plastic, giving them high strength and stability.
Prefabricated road slabs are used in a wide variety of situations, including but not limited to the construction of temporary roads when it is necessary to provide access to a construction site on very muddy ground, or during repair work on a main road when traffic cannot be carried out in the normal way.
Prefabricated road slabs are also used as surfacing elements for car parks, manoeuvring areas, pavements and other surfaces where high strength and stability are required. Prefabricated road slabs are easy to lay and can be used to quickly construct pavements of various shapes and sizes
Plastic road plates - where do they work best?
Plastic road slabs are increasingly popular due to their many advantages such as lightness, durability, ease of transport and installation and ease of maintenance.
Plastic road slabs are ideal for use in areas with poor soil bearing capacity, such as wetlands, where conventional road surfaces are unable to provide stability and traffic safety. Plastic road slabs are also used for temporary roads, for example during construction or renovation work.
In addition, plastic road plates are ideal for surfaces where heavy equipment cannot be used, such as flat roofs, terraces or playgrounds. These slabs are characterised by high resistance to weather conditions, UV radiation, rust and corrosion.
Plastic road plates are also used in areas where ease of maintenance is required, such as car parks, waste disposal areas or playgrounds. Due to their resistance to chemicals, these slabs are easy to clean and disinfect.
In summary, plastic road plates are ideal for areas where a lightweight, easy-to-install and easy-to-maintain pavement with high strength and resistance to weather, rust and corrosion is required.
What are the advantages of prefabricated road slabs?
Prefabricated road slabs have many advantages. These advantages have been well documented and, as more and more projects begin to use such solutions, these benefits can begin to be quantified . Among the advantages of prefabricated road slabs are primarily:
- Time and cost savings,
- Quality control,
- Reduction in environmental impact,
- Improved safety and security,
- Greater flexibility,
- Reduced disruption on site
An example of the use of prefabricated panels is PlasticRoad, where lightweight plastic prefabricated structures are used for road construction, allowing faster construction, less maintenance and longer road life
What are the most common sizes of prefabricated road slabs ?
The most common sizes of road slabs are 6 feet by 4 feet and 8 feet by 4 feet, but these sizes can vary considerably.
Plastic prefabricated road slabs have thicknesses of 2 cm , 3 cm , 4 cm , 5 cm 6 cm to 8 cm and dimensions of 120 cm x 180 mm, 120x250 cm , 120x 240 cm , 80x120 cm, 120x300 cm, 120x350 cm, 120x400 cm, 120x500 cm.
The plastic road plates are a modular system of pieces that connect to each other. Each section has dimensions of 1500 mm x 50 mm.
Precast concrete slabs (PPCP) are also used for the reconstruction of existing lanes and are supplied in sizes corresponding to the width of one, two or three lanes depending on site constraints.
What is the strength of the road plates ?
The strength of road plates depends on a number of factors, such as their thickness, the material they are made of, how they are installed and the conditions in which they are used.
Steel road plates are typically 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch thick and can withstand significant loads. Their load capacity depends on the thickness, but a 3/4-inch-thick steel road plate, for example, can withstand weights of up to 40 tonnes .
Slab strength Slab load capacity per m2 with good soil compaction
10 mm = 10 tonnes
12 mm = 20 tonnes
15 mm = 40 tonnes
18 mm = 60 tonnes
2 0 mm = 80/100 tonnes
Plastic road plates can have different load capacities, depending on the thickness and material they are made from. For example, 1/2in thick fibreglass laminate road plates can support up to 16 tonnes .
However, it is important to remember that it is not only the strength of the road slab that is important, but also the way in which it is installed and laid. Road slabs need to be properly laid on a level and compacted substrate for optimum load bearing capacity and safety for traffic.
Temporary roadways - what types of temporary roads are there ?
Temporary carriageway roads are temporary road solutions that allow traffic to be kept moving while construction or repair work is being carried out on roads. Here are some of the types of temporary carriageway roads:
Diversion roads - are temporary roads laid out to avoid areas where road works are being carried out or as a result of road accidents.
Road slabs - are steel or concrete plates that are laid on the road surface to allow traffic to pass through areas where road works are taking place.
Connectors - are temporary ramps or bridges that allow the existing road to be connected to the temporary road.
Pedestrian crossings - are temporary pedestrian crossings that allow pedestrians to cross the temporary road safely.
Traffic lights - are temporary traffic light devices that allow traffic to be controlled on temporary roads.
Barriers - are temporary barriers that provide safety for motorists and other road users, particularly when roadworks are carried out close to the carriageway.
Temporary signage - these are signs and road lines that allow safe movement on temporary roads.
The types of temporary roadways can vary depending on the needs and conditions in which they are used. It is important that such solutions are safe for users and meet the requirements of proper traffic operation.
Road slabs plate - what is their use ?
Road slabs are used as temporary solutions on roads to ensure safety and to allow the smooth flow of traffic during construction or renovation work. Here is some information on the use of road slabs:
Installation - Road slabs must be properly placed on a level and compacted substrate to ensure their stability and load bearing capacity. Depending on the design, road slabs can be connected to each other using special hooks or screws.
Maintenance - Road plates require regular maintenance such as cleaning and checking the condition of the joints. They should also be checked regularly to ensure that they are properly aligned and that there is no risk of shifting or damage.
Safety - Road slabs require appropriate signage, such as road lines and warning signs, to ensure the safe movement of vehicles. All markings must be visible and legible to drivers and other road users.
Durability - Road slabs must be made of suitable materials and be of sufficient thickness to withstand loads such as the weight of trucks and other vehicles. Therefore, the use of road slabs depends on their strength, which in turn depends on the material from which they are made, the thickness and how they are installed.
Disposal - Road slabs must be removed when they are no longer needed. They must be carefully removed and disposed of from the site where they were installed.
When using road plates, it is important to follow the relevant regulations and standards to ensure traffic safety and efficiency. Therefore, it is important that road slabs are installed by professionals and standards for their use are followed.
