Advantages of the SH15

Highway and Service Roads

Pavement marking removal rates up to 7,500 linear ft/hr (2,286 linear meters per hour).

Simultaneous removal of parallel markings.

Rapid removal of single, continuous lines.

Cleaning and rejuvenation of the retro-reflectivity of thermoplastic and cold plastic markings.

Simultaneous vacuum recovery allows for the application of new markings in 20 minutes.

Airports and Runways

Rubber removal rates up to 50,000 sq. ft/hr (4,645 m2/hr) on asphalt and concrete runways.

Rapid cleaning and rejuvenation of runway centerline marking retro-reflectivity dramatically reduces the frequency of centerline painting.

Runway retexturing in extreme hot climates where friction is lost because of asphalt bleeding.

Runway retexturing in climates with heavy snow and ice where snow removal brooms polish the surface of the runway.

Simultaneous vacuum recovery allows for immediate emergency landings during the removal process. The SH 15.0 will shut down and vacate the runway in under 1 minute.
