Structural Reinforcement for Asphalt Pavements
RoadMesh® has been designed to reduce the maintenance and whole life costs of asphalt pavement construction by structurally reinforcing the bound layers of the highway.
Manufactured from steel wire woven mesh with transverse reinforcement bars, RoadMesh® has an open 3D structure to interlock with the bitumen bound aggregates, enabling it to absorb loads and transfer stresses that would otherwise cause fatigue in the pavement.
The interlocking function and reinforcement strength of RoadMesh® also:
- Reduce rutting and ‘shoving’ on high traffic areas
- Reduce fatigue cracking
- Reduce differential settlement created at road shoulders during road widening
- Limit reflective cracking on overlay applications
RoadMesh® has been reinforcing pavements around the world for
over 10 years. This experience is built upon extensive testing in some of the foremost pavement research centres.
Installed directly onto the existing pavement or planed road surface, RoadMesh® does not require a slurry seal layer enabling rapid deployment. RoadMesh® is typically installed 75 -100 mm beneath the finished road level.
