We don’t just make paint for painting roads… We save lives.
Damar works closely with the roadmarking industry to develop innovative ways of improving the safety on our roads. The development and application of audio tactile profile markings (ATP’s) throughout NZ has been one of Damar’s success stories. This technology has provided the roading industry with an immediate, cost effective, speedy application and a timely solution for accident reduction.
Applications to date have resulted in improvements in driver behaviour. Where ATP’s have been applied there has been significant reductions in vehicles travelling at the extreme left and right prior to and after curves as well as reducing wheel-over-line and centre line crossing. This has resulted in major reductions in crashes causing injury and death.*)
