The 3M 290 Road stud is a high performance, permanent, surface mounted, reflecting roadstud. 3M has combined innovative technologies, including advanced optical design, hard ceramer coatings and computer-aided construction design, to produce a highly reflective, long lasting road stud.
Application / Suitability
The 290 road stud is extremely versatile – it is suitable for use in any position, on all road surfaces. The road studs are designed to be applied directly onto the road surface using 3M approved hot melt bitumen adhesive. They are also available in various colour combinations.
Effective Performance Life
Whilst the longevity of 3M 290 road studs will depend on the environment and volume of traffic, they have been specifically designed for today's heavily used roads and motorways.
Product Construction / Specification
3M 290 Roadstuds are manufactured from a high impact resistant polycarbonate resin. They incorporate an inner ribbed contour which is shaped to dissipate tyre impact, increase strength and reduce damage. The tough polycarbonate microprismatic reflective lens is coated with a ceramer abrasion-resistant coating.
Non Reflective Crossing Road studs
Pedestrian delineation road studs are non-reflective and are used to indicate a controlled or non-controlled pedestrian crossing area. Crossing road studs are cast from an approved grade of aluminium alloy or stainless steel. They are available as a round or square top profile in aluminium, or a square top in stainless steel.
The aluminium 100mm square crossing roadstuds come with a plain top, or with a raised profile to improve skid resistance in adverse weather conditions.
The stainless steel variety is only available with a square plain top. All crossing roadstuds have a shank for anchoring into the road surface – this effectively resists any twisting movement.
