High Friction surfacing

High Friction Surfacing (HFS) or anti-skid surfacing is a road surface treatment specifically engineered to enhance the skid resistance value (SRV) of the surface. In the UK alone, it has provided highway engineers with one of the most effective road safety surfacing measures for over 5 decades, saving countless lives and making a positive impact on the safety of individuals around the world. Hitex Traffic Safety adheres to the most stringent procedures during all testing and manufacturing processes.
Hitex Traffic Safety manufactures a premium quality, colourfast high friction surfacing range for both hot and cold applied application. It is designed for use in a diverse range of traffic calming projects, from slow pads and junctions to bus and cycle lanes.
Coloured surfacing visually reinforces the message of conventional road markings or signs, reduces traffic contraventions and lowers breaking distances through the enhanced SRV of the surface. The application of coloured surfacing material is a simple but effective way of increasing the safety in specific areas and directly contributes towards reducing accidents.
Working with engineers, landscape architects and local authorities, Hitex Traffic Safety has developed a range of decorative surface finishes to accommodate a wide range of design criteria.
Through continuous product development, the performance of this decorative range of surfacing has been maximised to offer attractive, cost-effective and maintenance-free alternatives to traditional products. Every aspect of the installation process is designed to perfectly blend durability and strength with aesthetic appeal.
