WJ manufacture high performance low carbon thermoplastic road marking materials in two state of the art plants. Working within a knowledge transfer partnership with the Open University WJ carry out research and development to develop markings for the future. WJ also provide a retroreflectivity surveying service for good asset management and road safety marking performance.
The award winning range of Weatherline thermoplastics ensures high performance road markings with enhanced characteristics of visibility and durability whilst having the lowest carbon footprint. The Weatherline+ type is ideal for improved wet night visibility and the upgrading of standard markings, especially in high accident risk locations.
WJ we also feature their new Robotic Premarking system with enhanced people plant interface, efficiency and cost savings.
WJ install all types of reflecting road studs with durable 301 and surface applied 290 prismatic. A recent innovation is the patented ALLUX a robust UK manufactured stemmed, highly reflective option to compliment the range.
WJ in collaboration with Clearview have delivered an award winning scheme for Highways England using SolarLite studs and when used in combination with high performance road markings they provide a real solution for enhanced road safety.
The WJ Guardian system, the latest innovation, is a innovative method of road stud installation designed to remove vulnerable operatives from the carriageway with better people plant interface whilst also providing safer passage for other road users.
When it comes to temporary marking on traffic management contracts WJ lead and have the resources to effectively and reliably deliver major schemes especially at night when the majority of work needs to be contracted.
The latest innovation in delivery of temporary road studs is the WJ Contramark System a unique and fully automatic installation method.
High Friction and Safety Surfacing
WeatherGrip, based on Methyl Methacrylate, is a cold applied, durable and colourfast surfacing system ideal for demarcation and traffic calming applications. WeatherGrip can also be used to revitalise existing worn or faded surfacing.
WJ install a range of BBA approved high friction surfacing using high performance bauxite aggregates.
Both mechanical and water systems are used to successfully remove road markings
WJ first identified Hydroblast Ultra high pressure water technology in the United States as the ideal system to deliver a more sustainable solution for the removal of road markings within the UK highways industry.
Hydroblast has been further developed and proven effective for:-
• Cleaning major fuel spills
• Rubber removal
• Decorative aggregate exposure
Captive Shot Blasting and Hydroblast High Pressure water systems have been particularly useful for Retexturing of asphalt surfaces such as:
• Restoring macro and micro texture
• Fatted up surface dressing
• A pre-treatment to surface dressing
• Recovering failed texture depth on new surfacing.
Average Speed Cameras
Constantly evolving and growing the business activity WJ also provide road safety measures for temporary traffic management with the installation of Home Office Type Approved (HOTA) Average Speed Technology Cameras.
Thermoplastic Application Equipment
WJ have evolved plant and equipment with numerous safety features and can now supply a range of boilers and hand tools to other contractors.
Whilst building specialist major road marking application equipment WJ also refurbish all highway maintenance vehicle types to a high standard.
