Project Details

The versatility of Denso Skid Resistant Overbanding Tape™ was demonstrated on the BAA access road to Stansted Airport from the A120. Contractors Balfour Beatty used the overbanding tape on the interface with the road surface black top and a textile mesh, known as American Green, which holds down the grass verges.

To date over 13,500 linear metres (nearly eight miles) of Denso Skid Resistant Overbanding Tape has been used.

This product has a special textured surface which has been independently tested and proven to exceed the minimum skid resistance value for overbanding materials specified by the Department of Transport.

Designed for sealing cracks or failed reinstatements (up to 5mm wide) on secondary road pavements, use of the new tape prevents the entry of water which if left unchecked will eventually cause more damage and breakdown of the surface. The special skid resistant surface is an added safety feature which has been welcomed by contractors, utilities and highway authorities alike. Another virtue of the tape that should appeal to the conservation conscious is that it is made from recycled materials.
