Raised & Recessed Pavement Markers

High visibility pavement markers offer a paramount solution for enhancing road safety and navigational clarity, and they can be installed in two distinct configurations: as recessed or raised markers. These versatile installations are designed to provide enduring visibility, benefitting the traveling public in various ways.

Infinite Road Marking, as a provider of road safety solutions, specialized in the installation of RPM’s, both recessed and surface mounted. These installations are strategically placed along roadways to fulfill a spectrum of functions aimed at improving road safety and traffic flow.

An Overview of the Recessed Pavement Markers

What are Recessed Pavement Markers

Recessed markers are ingeniously embedded flush with the road surface, ensuring a seamless, unobtrusive appearance. Despite their discreet profile, they deliver outstanding visibility through their vibrant colors and reflective properties. Recessed markers are specially designed to withstand the rigors of heavy traffic, extreme weather conditions, and the abrasive impact of vehicle tires. Their long-lasting durability ensures that they continue to serve their purpose, even under the most demanding circumstances.

Recessed raised pavement markers provide similar performance to raised pavement markers with the added benefit of inlaid protection from high traffic and snow plows.

Advantages of Recessed Pavement Markers:

  1. Reduced Wear and Tear: Recessed markers are less susceptible to wear and damage from heavy traffic and snowplows since they sit below the road surface, making them a longer-lasting solution.
  2. Enhanced Nighttime Visibility: Recessed markers with reflective elements, like glass beads, offer excellent nighttime visibility, helping drivers maintain proper lane discipline.
  3. Enhanced Lane Guidance: Recessed markers can guide drivers more precisely than painted lines, especially in low-visibility conditions, like heavy rain.
  4. Reduced Snowplow Damage: Recessed markers are less likely to be damaged by snowplows compared to raised markers, which can be dislodged or scraped off the road surface.
  5. Customization: Recessed markers can be used to create various lane symbols or patterns, offering flexibility in design and traffic management.
  6. Improved Safety: By providing clear lane delineation, recessed markers reduce the risk of lane drifting and help prevent head-on collisions.

An Overview of the Raised Pavement Markers

What are Raised Pavement Markers

In contrast, raised markers, as the name suggests, protrude slightly above the road surface. This elevation makes them even more conspicuous, providing enhanced visibility, especially in adverse weather conditions or during nighttime driving. Raised markers are strategically placed to delineate lanes, signal upcoming turns, or highlight critical road information. Their tactile presence alerts drivers to changes in road conditions or upcoming hazards, contributing to safer and more precise navigation.

Raised pavement markers have been shown to make road markings clearer and increase the time drivers have to see them, especially in wet conditions. They’ve also been proven to reduce crashes on highways with these markers by about 0.5 crashes for every million miles that vehicles travel.

Advantages of Raised Pavement Markers:

  1. Enhanced Visibility: Raised markers, such as raised reflective lane dividers or speed bumps, are highly visible, especially at night or in adverse weather conditions. They improve drivers’ awareness of lane boundaries and potential hazards.
  2. Lane Separation: Raised markers, often in the form of reflective plastic buttons, help maintain safe distances between lanes, reducing the risk of lane drifting and collisions.
  3. Durable and Long-Lasting: Many raised markers are made from durable materials, which can withstand heavy traffic and harsh weather conditions, ensuring a longer lifespan.
