Striping & Signs assist your visitors in the safe use of your parking lot. It directs traffic to the proper route of entrance and exit, allowable areas to park, loading zones, crosswalks, and defines drive aisles that are wide enough to avoid accidents with cars and pedestrians.
Properly designed parking spaces also maximize the number of cars you can safely accommodate.
Customers appreciate a well designed and well marked parking system. The parking lot is the first thing that customers or visitors see. A freshly painted parking lot can lend an attractive impression to the overall image of your property. A striping change may improve your vehicle flow and safety.
Wheel Stops are pre-cast concrete blocks pinned to the pavement, that make sure vehicles stop where they should. Wheel stops are a great way to prevent damage to walls and keep parked vehicles from hanging over your sidewalks.
Grading Tucson Asphalt understands that a long lasting structural pavement section is dependent on good line and grade, quality base materials and an overall design that will support the type of traffic it is intended to accommodate. Tucson Asphalt understands the importance of Grading and knows how to build pavement sections that last.
Subbase Typically local soils which vary greatly in their ability to support a load must determine the required thickness of the overlaying layers.
Compaction is usually accomplished through vibration and static weigh of rollers over newly placed asphalt to condense the mixture to a minimum practical volume, to mold it within form shapes and around embedded parts and reinforcement, and to eliminate voids other than design entrained air.
Pulverizing Asphalt Pulverizing is the process of breaking up the existing pavement and blending it in to the existing base. The new base is re-compacted, graded and made ready for paving. Pulverizing is a very cost effective way to reconstruct your existing pavement. This process eliminates excavation, haul off and landfill costs associated with removing your existing asphalt. Pulverizing adds larger aggregate and structure to the base, thereby giving you a stronger base than what had existed previously.
Speed Bumps are often used on private property, when slowing traffic to a near stop is the desired effect.
Speed Humps & Speed Tables are often used on secondary public streets, meet local City and County codes, are engineered safe to drive over and won’t damage vehicle suspensions. Humps and tables are more visually than physically effective at slowing traffic and discouraging short cutting. Speed Humps & Tables have defined shapes, sizes and stripe specifications. Humps require permits prior to installation on public streets. Asphalt Speed Tables are required instead of humps in areas frequented by fire trucks. Your local street agency uses guidelines when deciding if humps or tables are the requirement for a particular public street.
To find out more about the process of approval and permitting in your area, call The City of Tucson at (520) 791-4259 or Pima County at (520) 740-2853. The City and County are very helpful in explaining the process and fees and will participate in certain aspects of installation.
Asphalt Curbs are not recommended in Tucson. Vertically shaped, unsupported pavements become soft and crush easily in our hot Tucson climate. Asphalt curbs do perform as intended in many colder climates.
Berms curvilinear in shape, perform fairly well in our hot Tucson Climate and are used regularly to divert water run off.
Tucson Asphalt is proud to have paved the Running Tracks at The Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind, Amphi High School and Benson High School.
