LANDLOCK® Advantages For Roads
Road designs vary greatly from country to country, but are generally calculated based on the performance metrics that need to be achieved. A super-highway will have a much larger profile of design than a rural road. However, all road profiles generally have three basic layers: a drainage layer, base and wear-course.
Just like a chain, every road is only as strong as its weakest link. Herein lies the problem. When a wear-course like asphalt begins to fail, evident by cracking and potholes, generally it’s due to failures at the base or sub-base. Why then during construction would these critical layers only be compacted with water and therefore left “unstabilized,” and susceptible to water and vibratory erosion?
When integrating LANDLOCK® into one (or all) of these three layers/sections of the road, it allows builders to gain several critical advantages that significantly reduce the traditional waste associated with modern road construction.
