Here at Cube Concreting, we’re experts in creating safer, slip-resistant concrete driveways. However, our work is not done in just settling with providing you the best concrete driveway this side of Australia. Our work over 2 decades has given us more expertise than just concrete alone. To complement the excellent work we have done over the years, we have discovered that driveway traction strips are the best to go with the concrete driveways we have constructed.
In areas where weather patterns fluctuate dramatically, driveways can quickly become hazardous zones. During rainy seasons, surfaces can get slick and slippery, while in winter, ice and snow can create treacherous conditions. A slip-resistant driveway is essential in these environments, providing a stable and secure surface regardless of the weather.
Beyond the immediate safety concerns, driveways without proper traction can suffer from weather-related wear and tear. Water and ice can seep into cracks and crevices, exacerbating existing damage and leading to costly repairs. Proper traction enhances safety and protects your investment from the elements.
For vehicles, a driveway lacking in traction can be akin to a skid pan. This is particularly true for inclined driveways where the gradient adds to the challenge. Vehicles may struggle to gain the necessary grip, leading to skidding or sliding, which can result in accidents or damage to your property and the vehicle itself.
And it extends beyond vehicles. Pedestrians, including family members and visitors, are at risk of slips and falls on a slick driveway. This risk is heightened for children and the elderly, who may find it challenging to navigate a slippery surface.
Now, to the point we’re making. All those concerns about safety and protection should be the number 1 priority of any homeowner with a functional driveway.
However, the driveway alone isn’t going to make a difference if even just one thing goes wrong. It can be the weather, wear and tear, or unique driveway designs. The solution? Traction strips.
Installing them on your driveway brings several key benefits including:
There’s no one way to solve every driveway traction problem. Every driveway will have a traction strip that will match it. Some of them include:
In all our years in the driveway business, we’ve seen countless attempts to integrate these strips into driveways we made and some that we maintained. However, traction strips can be seamlessly integrated into some driveway designs, including:
Maintaining a driveway traction strip is straightforward and hassle-free. Regular cleaning and occasional resealing are all that’s needed to keep them in top condition, ensuring they continue to provide safety and enhance the look of your driveway for years to come.
