Roadway and airport safety markings provide drivers and pilots with continuous guidance and information about the road and airfield systems. Highway safety marking spheres are an important part of this system. Not only do they enhance the reflectivity of markings, but they also improve their durability. Greater retroreflectivity serves as a visual guidance system, providing both drivers and pilots with an uninterrupted stream of information from the roadway and runway to enhance safety even in the most challenging weather conditions.
For the highest level of nighttime roadway safety in rain, fog, or melting snow, you can rely on the world leader in highway safety marking technology: Potters Industries. Our premier VISIBEAD® family of safety marking spheres – VISIBEAD, VISIBEAD PLUS II, VISIMAX, VISIMAX PLUS, and ULTRA 1.9 – provides both drivers and pilots a brighter view of the pavement ahead. Feel the confidence in all the benefits the VISIBEAD Line offers, especially in adverse weather conditions.
Proper application, quality materials, proper material usage, calibrated equipment, proper sphere distribution and embedment are all crucial items for effective pavement markings and their performance. The full range of Potters’ technical support always stands ready. It begins with in-depth R&D conducted in our advanced laboratory and extends all the way to the pavement.
