Installing Roadstuds

Installation of a stud that has no shank(e.g. some plastic studs)

  • Sweep the surface of the road clean with a broom, removing any dust and loose particles.
  • Cover the entire underneath face of the roadstud with correctly mixed epoxy adhesive, approximately 1mm thick.Add more epoxy into the shell if the bottom of the stud is ribbed.
  • Press the stud into the road ensuring that it is parallel to the road and correctly aligned (i.e. facing the traffic)
  • Ensure that the four corners of the stud have bonded well with the road surface and that a 2 to 3mm wide and high brim of adhesive surrounds the roadstud completely.
  • Curing time for the epoxy is +/- 30 minutes.

Installation of a stud with a shank

  • Create an anchor hole in the road surface by using a 22mm or 25mm moil point or drill bit.
  • Remove any loose debris from the hole and sweep the surrounding area clean.
  • Flatten any tar that is standing up around the hole.
  • Fill the hole with the mixed epoxy adhesive (press epoxy into the hole with the rod if necessary) (see sundry tools) and apply approximately 1mm to the bottom of the roadstud.
  • Add more epoxy to fill the cavities under the stud.
  • Place the stud into the epoxy filled hole and press down firmly. A hammer may be required to tap the stud into place.
  • Ensure that the base of the stud is parallel with the road surface as well as being correctly aligned (i.e. facing the traffic)
    Check that the base of the stud has bonded well with the road surface and that a 2 to 3mm wide and high brim of adhesive completely surrounds the roadstud.
  • Curing time for the epoxy is +/- 30 minute
