The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
The Carlson EZIV is the industry’s leading asphalt screed for award winning mat quality and wide width ability. Helping contractors to earn multiple Sheldon G. Hayes Awards and other accolades, the EZIV provides contractors a reliable, heavy duty screed platform for commercial, municipal and highway-class applications. Along with its single slide extension support system combined with heavy-duty, adjustable wear components, it is no wonder why the Carlson EZIV is the industry’s best selling front mount screed.
Available in 8-foot and 10-foot models, the EZIV can be mounted to all current North American models offered by the major paver manufacturers. The screed platform can also be retrofitted on to nearly any previous North American highway-class paver, combining the leading performance of the EZIV with your fleet’s dependable workhorse.
Highway class paving requires pavers that are strong, powerful, and productive. Highway class paving can range from one lane to multi-lane projects. These applications require pavers with large hoppers, wide paving widths, and a broad scope of screed compatibility.
Residential paving focuses on paving driveways, parking lots, cart paths, bike paths, footpaths, and other smaller areas. These smaller spaces are traveled via vehicle, bicycles, and foot daily, and examined at close range. Therefore, they demand attention to detail and focus. While these sites are smaller in scale than highway class or commercial class jobs, they still require asphalt paving machinery that can produce a quality mat with efficiency and productivity.
Motor Sports Paving requires nonstop paving, precise mat thickness, and consistent paving practices. The HMA mixture needs to be consistent in terms of temperature and consistency. The resulting pavement must be able to withstand massive stress.
The patented Carlson Safety Edge is the contractor’s choice for creating accurate, 30º extruded edges for safer, longer lasting roadways. The only endgate mounted Safety Edge builder on the market approved by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), easily attach to nearly any North American front mount, rear-mount, or fixed width platforms.
LED Blade Light
Roadway work zones are dangerous, and during nighttime operations those hazards can be amplified. The LED Blade Light is the industry’s original LED directional lighting system for mobile equipment. Combining high output illumination with a low profile, directional platform to enhance worker, operator, and motorist safety on nighttime projects. Eliminating glare, shadows and excessive heat, the LED Blade Light.
Joint Density Attachments
Poor density at the longitudinal joint can drastically reduce the lifespan of roadways and can even cause premature failure. Helping to maximize roadway lifecycle, Carlson introduces the 4in High Density Bolt-on and Sideload Endgate Attachment. Available exclusively for Carlson front- and rear-mount screeds, Carlson’s Longitudinal Joint Density Attachments work in unison to produce higher density figures without the need of extra material, pie cutters or stepped joints.
Creating safer work zone transitions from existing roadway surface to the pavement, the Carlson Tapered Notch utilizes easily accessible adjustment points for on-the-fly adjustability. Available in 12” and 18” widths. Comes standard with electric heating elements and Y-cables for accessory power.
Two models of compaction sleds can be paired with the Tapered Notch. • Small Sled, perfect for berm compaction and small applications • Heavy Sled, able to ballast up to 400 lbs with adjustable 0-3000 vpm eccentric weight vibration.
Helping contractors achieve award winning mat quality at wide widths with their front- and rear-mount screeds, Carlson’s wide array of heated bolt-on extensions lead the industry in ease of use and paving performance. Available exclusively for its screed platforms, all of Carlson’s bolt-on’s are constructed of heavy-duty materials, state-of-the-art heating elements, and Y-cables for longer attachment lifecycle, enhanced paving performance and accessible accessory power.
Power Tunnel Kit
The Carlson Hydraulically extendable tunnel extensions are American made and built to last with durable steel parts that are easy to replace if damaged. Its great design allows for easy installation. Since the Carlson tunnel is installed behind the paver instead of on the side it is less likely to be damaged while not in use. It is compatible with most major make and model pavers.
