High Friction Surfacing

What Is High-Friction Surfacing?

High-Friction Surfacing (commonly referred to as anti-skid or HFS) is a material and installation process by which road surfaces become less prone to skidding and loss of friction. Through increasing skid resistance and reducing braking distance we can reduce the potential for accidents. This revolutionary and innovative surfacing technique is specially formulated to provide exceptional grip and reduce skidding even in adverse weather conditions.

By increasing the anti- skid properties of a surface, this creates more friction between the vehicle tyres and the road surface. HFS significantly reduces the risk of accidents, particularly in critical areas such as intersections, roundabouts, and pedestrian crossings. The aggregate (stone) is available in a range of colours depending on the requirements

Typical locations for High-Friction Surfacing include:

  • Road junctions
  • Traffic light approaches
  • Pedestrian crossings
  • Roundabouts
  • Roads that have high accident levels
  • Around ‘SLOW’ and speed roundels
  • Pedestrianised areas
