Airfield Markings

Jointline has vast experience in airfield and airport line marking, and we continue to be the market leader for the UK’s airports, airfields and MOD bases. Line marking is an essential element of the airfield infrastructure, from full runway markings to delineation of taxiway markings, or identifying any potential hazards. Jointline’s experienced staff have the knowledge and expertise, along with state of the art equipment to implement surface markings which comply with strict regulations.

Our line marking complies with EASA, CAP168, ICAO Annex 14 and RA3500 where appropriate. This is a superior quality to conventional line marking material, combined with a unique grading of aggregates. This combination gives a high friction value where necessary, which brings it into line with the surrounding runway surfaces. By varying the size and amount of aggregates, friction values of between .65 and .8 using a grip tester can be achieved.

We specialise in single pack epoxy and chlorinated rubber materials that are used in conjunction with calzined flint to enhance the friction values of the markings. These are used in place of traditional line marking materials such as thermoplastic, as they present a much less risk in the prevention of foreign object debris (FOD).

We invest heavily in the most up-to-date equipment to ensure we are capable of applying large volumes of material within the restricted windows of opportunity when required. Key to the implementation of new layouts or changes on airfields, Jointline has a range of removal techniques that can be used that comply with necessary legislation.
