DuraTherm® Enhanced Inlaid Crosswalk Surfacing System
Built Tough for High-Traffic Enhanced Crosswalks
DuraTherm® is a specially-designed preformed thermoplastic material that is set into imprinted asphalt using asphalt reheating technology. The process of inlaying DuraTherm® into stamped asphalt means there is no ‘high-point wear’, ensuring that it retains its attractive look for years. Communities across the country embrace DuraTherm® for community branding enhancing the beauty of their neighborhoods and pedestrian safety. DuraTherm is an excellent choice for Crosswalks in high traffic locations, Safe Route to School improvements, Transit System Applications and Commercial Parking Lots.
DuraTherm® helps to:
• Improve traffic safety especially at intersections and multi-use paths
• Enhance visibility for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians
• Promote and/or revitalize community brand image and beautification
• Improves pedestrian channelization across busy commercial parking areas

Features & Benefits:
DuraTherm®, offers fast installation, lower cost, and minimal maintenance compared to stamped concrete and pavers which can result in maintenance headaches, pedestrian hazards, slow installation, and lengthy traffic disruptions.
Fast Installation: Installations are performed by Certified Applicators who are trained for this specific technology. Crosswalks can be ready for traffic in as little as 90 minutes per lane.
High Skid/Slip Resistant: Anti-skid materials are added at time of manufacturing for a more consistent, controlled application.
• Designed specifically for high-traffic crosswalks
• Provides optimum wear in adverse conditions
• Snowplow friendly
• Eliminates the maintenance and safety concerns of loose pavers
Accessibility: DuraTherm® is inlaid to be flush with the asphalt. There is no additional vibration or rigid bumpy effect and, therefore, is wheelchair friendly.
Maintenance: Virtually maintenance free, but it is also easy to repair sections of material quickly and with minimal traffic disruption. Remove the damaged section, replace with new material, and heat in place.
Manufacturing Control: All DuraTherm® preformed thermoplastic materials are made at Flint’s manufacturing facility which is ISO 9001:2008 certified for design, development and manufacturing.
