Attenuating the speed of the traffic can be done using traffic islands. It goes by many names, so our modules are often referred to as presuppositions, traffic islands, safety islands, chicanes and traffic modules.
The modules can stand alone or be assembled according to the specific need.
Traffic chicanes are used, among other things, for pedestrian crossings without a light signal and for busy roads where the transverse traffic must be secured. Traffic chicanes are established at schools, residential areas and on long, straight stretches of roads, where one wishes to actively regulate traffic. Traffic chicanes are flexible and less intrusive in traffic than bumps and are therefore widely used in many places.
How are the modules created?
Paving systems and traffic chicanes are manufactured from high-quality fibre reinforced concrete. The modules are manufactured in a variety of standard sizes and designs, which together form a flexible building block system that can solve basically all road safety tasks. The modules are supplied in grey concrete as standard but can also be supplied with a surface of embedded setts.
The basic prerequisites for choice, location and design, of for example, traffic chicanes, are determined by the municipal planning. Here, the role of the individual roads is defined as traffic or local roads, their role in light traffic networks, including school roads, their role in the bus network and their speed class.
Advantages of traffic modules and traffic chicanes from DAV NORDIC
- Easy and quick to assemble
- Minimal disturbance of traffic during assembly
- Reinforcements incorporated - more durable
- No weeds - better environment and minimal maintenance
- Portable solutions - the advantage of applying a new wear layer
- Reflective stones - easy to see in the dark
Installation and repair
Traffic modules are delivered ready-made and ready for mounting directly on the road, including kit for mounting and filling bolt for embedded
Traffic modules are robust and can withstand repeated collisions of larger trucks. That means fewer repairs. The molded surface provides a minimal opportunity for weeds to grow, thus saving weed control resources and herbicides for the benefit of both the economy and the environment.
