Only HAPAS approved Overbanding can be used on our road network!

Overbanding in the past has received bad press and has not always been a popular repair solution with reports of accident claims due to skidding or unsightly images of bitumen creeping out from the sides of a patch in hot weather.  Well things have certainly changed with new materials providing all of the benefit with none of the risk.

New overbanding solutions are quick and easy to heat apply and can be trafficked instantly, minimising the need for traffic management.

Overbanding materials provide an excellent method of preventative maintenance. Designed for application to asphalt roads they prevent water ingress and progressive fretting, which is a prime reason for failure of the reinstatement.

To ensure road safety is maintained it is compulsory to choose a solution that is HAPAS approved, as per the requirements of the SROH S11.7, ‘All materials used for overbanding shall have a current HAPAS approval certificate’ and that offers ‘a minimum skid resistance value of 55.’ This is especially important for motorcyclists, cyclists and horses. Failure to comply can lead to early failure and contravene SROH requirements.

Materials such as UltraCrete’s Instaband ECO have been tested over time to ensure compliance to those SROH requirements.  They are proven to provide a waterproof seal on asphalt and are an excellent method of preventative maintenance. The product’s simple application method provides contractors with an effective way of protecting new and in-situ reinstatements as well as repairing joints and cracks in older wearing courses.
