Spike Installation Precautions And Installation Methods
Nov 14, 2013

    Spike mainly refers to a traffic safety facilities. Prominent street sign, mainly installed in the middle of the road marking or double yellow line, through its retroreflective properties to remind drivers to drive along the lane. Spike specifications are generally 100mm * 100mm * 20mm, the maximum height of not more than 25mm. Reflector unit has a variety of reflective film, reflective beads, led light, reflective film. Spike installation of the general use of epoxy resin installed. In the night with the help of lights clearly outlined the outline of the road. Play a good visual induction. With the extensive application of spikes to domestic high-grade highways and municipal roads, the quality issues and service life of spikes have received more attention. In the actual application process, often due to the installation of the problem caused by damage to the spike and reduce the phenomenon of life has often occurred. According to the author's many years of construction experience summed up the problems often encountered in the installation of spike, and put forward a reasonable installation method, I hope everyone has received.

Here are some of the problems that often occur during spike installation:

Spike installed in the marking line. Marking is also a resin material, itself is attached to the ground, its own connection with the ground there is a certain limit. If the spike is mounted on the marking, the impact of the spike is completely transferred to the marking, so that the spike can easily be knocked off and the marking off.

2. Spike installation location is not smooth. As a direct result of the non-uniform force spikes, spikes under pressure almost entirely concentrated in the convex and concave part. If you encounter large tonnage of vehicles, spikes easily rupture.

3. Spike installation location is not clean. The strength of the spike depends on the tight engagement of the spike, glue and the ground. If the installation location is not clean, the dust between them will absorb most of the adhesive glue, resulting in poor splicing spike, in the event of external impact, it is easy to fall off.

4 install the amount of glue is not enough or too much. Insufficient amount of adhesive will reduce the firmness of the spike to reduce its service life; Excessive amount of glue will spill out from around the spike, it is easy to rub the splinter reflector, affecting the reflective brightness.

Spike install glue uneven application. Install spike, the glue not only moderate dosage, but also smear evenly, so as to ensure that all parts of the spike stress evenly, to avoid uneven stress appears to be crushed situation.

6. Spike installation glue deployment temperature is not enough. Spike install glue is epoxy resin, is a two-component glue, glue and curing agent according to a certain proportion of ratio, and after mixing evenly to play an effect. However, due to epoxy glue in the cold weather in the winter condensation is more powerful, not easy to mix evenly, so be sure to use the first heat, let the glue softened before use. 7 pinch spike method unscientific. Do not pinch the nail pinch must have no reflective film on both sides, so as not to glue the reflective film so as to affect the reflective film reflective brightness.

8. Installation hole shallow hole fine. This is mainly for cast aluminum foot spikes. Cast aluminum with foot nails due to some of its depth into the ground and have better impact resistance, compressive properties, longer service life. However, during the installation process, if the hole is too shallow or too thin, the bottom surface of the spike can not be fully contacted with the ground, affecting the firmness of the bonding.

9. Glue curing time is not enough after installation. After installing the spike, the glue will take some time to solidify before connecting the spike with the ground. This time is recommended for 6-8 hours. However, in practice, many people remove the installation of isolation facilities for less than two hours after installation. In this case, if they are subjected to vehicle impact and rolling, the light of the spikes will deform and the heavy ones will fall off.
