Taxiway Painting

Taxiway centerline markings provide a visual cue to pilots, along a designated path, where taxiing is permitted. Taxiway holding position markings indicate where an aircraft is to stop before proceeding to enter or cross the runway. It’s crucial that all taxiways have centerline, runway holding position, as well as shoulder and edge markings, in all the appropriate areas.

For the utmost safety, taxiway markings need to be clearly visible to the naked eye and to all Instrument Landing Systems.

Temporary Displaced Thresholds

Displacing or relocating runway thresholds requires removing the existing markings and repainting them in the new location. Since its necessary when removing and remarking runway thresholds to shut down the entire runway, it’s imperative to get the job done as quickly as possible.
