Our Infra Ray Heaters are a flexible, single mobile unit, traditionally used to repair Asphalt surfaces quickly and efficiently. Our expert engineers have designed this cost-effective product to enable contractors to repair dangerous potholes and surface defects. The seamless repair will prevent secondary failure, due to weather ingress and provide a permanent solution.
Traditionally road surface maintenance, reinstatement and removal has entailed the use of many different operations, machines and man-power.

Infra-Ray Heater information:
The heater panel applies infra-red energy to the asphalt and tarmacadam road surfaces. The heat penetrates the material, softening the binder content to a point where the material becomes workable. Other systems which use a naked flame tend to burn and destroy the road surface. Infra-red heat does not impair the quality of the material. As soon as the material has been conditioned by the road heater many alternatives are open to the contractor: the material can easily be removed, or since it is not displaced in any way by the heater, it may be rolled again to provide a good wearing surface, or new material, including pre-coated chips which can be added and rolled in to improve the surface.
A standard range of equipment is available as well as specialised equipment, which can be designed for customers’ specific requirements e.g Machines for trenching work, lorry mounted or paver mounted machines. For smaller areas, a range of asphalt finishing tools are also available for the removal of bumps indentations and high spots.
