With special requirements and large areas to cover, runway marking machines need to be extremely efficient and well equipped in order to keep runway closures and downtime to a minimum.
WHAT TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN CHOOSING AN AIRPORT MARKING MACHINE
What is characteristic of most airports is the need to mark large areas, which means that the capacity and efficiency of your machine are key factors.
In most airports, the marking of runways is done by cold paint or cold paint airless application without the use of beads. When choosing your airport line marking machine you should take the below-mentioned needs into consideration. If you outline the requirements then we will help you find the machine which is most suitable for the job:
- The need for different markings types throughout the airport
- The need for different colors of the markings
- The need for different sizes of the lines and extra wide lines, depending on their function
EXTRA WIDE LINES AND MULTI-COLOR MARKING – COMMON MARKING REQUIREMENTS IN MOST AIRPORTS
In accordance with the line width you require, a wide retainer and up to 5 paint spray guns and 5 glass bean guns can be mounted. This assures that the application is performed in a single pass and can be up to 125 cm (approx. 49 inches) depending on line thickness, work conditions, and application speed.
All cold paint Borum machines are equipped with a sliding retainer frame as standard that makes handling the application equipment easier and quicker.
Furthermore, Borum cold paint application machines can be equipped with more material tanks (and separate airless pumps), so that multi-color marking can be carried out simultaneously.
