THE ROADMASTER IS THE MARKET LEADING SPRAY INJECTION PATCHING MACHINE
The Roadmaster® is the market leading Spray Injection patching machine. It prepares the site and delivers a computer calibrated mixture of aggregate and binder directly into the pothole or road defect under high velocity, ensuring a cost effective, reliable solution to problematic road maintenance issues.
The Roadmaster® is a one man operation, ensuring high levels of productivity and greatly reduced risk to operators. No body is exposed to traffic hazards, dust, fumes, noise, weather or bitumen. The single operator sits in the comfort of an air conditioned cab, controlling everything at the touch of a button. Unique to the Roadmaster is the PLC (Programmable Logical Computer) control system.
It ensures that the application rates can be pre-set, allowing for the binder and aggregate mix to be calibrated. This consistency guarantees you lasting results every time. The Operator can store their perfect ratios of mixture for different types of aggregate and binder, reducing their manual workload and preventing failures such as “fatting up”. With the Roadmaster, the window for human error and material waste is minimised.
REPAIR TYPES POSSIBLE WITH THE ROADMASTER®
Remove all water and debris with high pressure air jet. Tack coat the area. Build up the patch with a calibrated mixture of emulsion and aggregate and top off with dry chip.
Blow away the water and debris, prime the area, build up the patch with a mixture and top off with dry chips.
PRE-SURFACE DRESS WORK
Depressions can be raised, cracks filled and stripped areas reinstated, prior to surface dressings for a for a fraction of the cost of conventional means.
PREVENTATIVE SEAL ON CRACKED AREA
Priming and application of layers of coated chips will raise and strengthen the surface and prevent water ingress. The finished patch will normally have rectangular shape with well defined edges.
Preventative & Routine Maintenance
Small areas can be very effectively surfaced using the Roadmaster® System, i.e. areas which might be disproportionately expensive using conventional surface dress systems. Coverage of up to 1500 meters squared per day has been recorded.
BUILD UP BROKEN EDGES
An effective and inexpensive way to reinstate ragged and broken carriageway defects
Detailed, intricate repairs in difficult to reach areas; due to proximity to obstacles such as kerbs are no problem for a Roadmaster®
Users have achieved a financial saving of up to 80% when compared with conventional repair methods.
The Roadmaster® has been designed with this in mind and has the following key safety features
ONE MAN OPERATED
Operated from the safety of the chassis cab – There is no need for an operative to stand on a live carriageway to carry out a road repair
NO MATERIAL HANDLING
There is no manual or material handling on site and no direct environmental exposure.
is fitted with maneuvering sensors, reversing alarms, rear cameras and can also be fitted with a driver assist function.
An LED arrow board can also be mounted on the rear of the Roadmaster®
enabling the operation to carry out as independent mobile works.
NO WASTE GENERATED
As the SIP process fills the existing road defect void without the requirement for excavation there is a reduced requirement for new material.
Can prevent early stages of deterioration such as fretting and cracked surfaces which ultimately results in more cost-effective programming of any network.
THE GREENER SOLUTION
The one man, one truck operation, literally takes auxiliary vehicles off the road. The Spray Injection patching cleans the existing area, without the need for cutting out of large pieces of road surrounding the defect.
The computer calibration of aggregate ensures no unnecessary material is used in the fix.
The Roadmaster® also offers market leading data capture, the Centaur Light. This provides local authorities and term maintenance contractors with real time information on the operation of every Roadmaster® on the road.
Not only is this useful from a reporting perspective but also as a means to document in detail the before and after of each fix. This verifiable data has proved its value time and time again in relation to insurance queries, quotes and claims.
