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.

Advantages for Primary/Urban Roads & Highways

Profile Reduction

Based on extensive lab and field testing, a LANDLOCK® treated base will be 2-20 times stronger than an unstabilized base. This means that engineers can significantly reduce the profile of design of the road and still achieve the required performance metrics. A smaller profile of design means less material. At the same time, builders will see a reduction in material spreading and transportation costs, while simultaneously increasing production rates. The entire construction process is more efficient and less wasteful - Smarter Infrastructure.

Extended Life Cycle

As mentioned above, traditional wear-courses like asphalt are only as good as their base. It’s only logical then that a wear-course laid on a rock-hard, erosion free LANDLOCK® treated base will last much longer than when laid on an unstabilized base. A longer life means less money being wasted on costly maintenance work, leaving more money to spend in other areas.

Paving/Stabilizing Dirt and Gravel Roads

Across the world, even in developed countries, there are millions of miles of unpaved roads that are a constant source of fugitive dust and waste given their need for constant maintenance. Because unpaved roads have no protection from rainfall, water erosion will turn a newly graded, rural road into a muddy mess, that once dried out, is then covered with potholes and washboarding. It’s a vicious cycle that, previously, was impossible to win.

Work
with us

Through value engineering, LANDLOCK® is able to reduce waste by lowering material and transportation costs, and increase production rates compared to traditional road construction and paving methods. It does this without sacrificing performance or longevity.

unstable slopes
By integrating LANDLOCK® into the existing surface, we can create a surface that is impervious to water, and therefore erosion resistant. It just so happens that you’ll also have a dust free surface.

What can LANDLOCK® be used for?

One of the greatest strengths of LANDLOCK’s® technology lies in the diversity of its applications: surface paving, dust control, erosion control, slope stabilization to name just a few. All of our products are environmentally friendly, offering no pollutants into the dirt or aggregate. Pigment can be added if necessary to create any color surface you wish.

When your fugitive dust problem is coming from your daily operations, like heavy haul roads or material stockpiles, LANDLOCK® has products to meet your needs and ensure compliance. We help you avoid the unnecessary waste of the environment.

Erosion Control

surface road erosion
Water erosion is one of the most destructive forces affecting roads and other surfaces like hillsides, slopes and embankments. Soil stabilization with LANDLOCK® is the answer to reducing or eliminating the erosion that will destroy your infrastructure.

Building Together

We started LANDLOCK® to work with organizations who share our passion for reducing waste and who want to make a positive impact in communities near and far. There’s a lot of roads that need to be built and LANDLOCK® is definitely in it for the long haul. We would welcome the opportunity to chat with you, so we can decide together, if we’re the right fit.
