The benefits of
the LAYJET-method

Fast and gentle!

In a single step, a special milling machine is used to cut a narrow slit trench 18 to 25 cm wide and 50 to 70 cm deep in the road shoulder approx. 10 cm from the edge of the asphalt. In the process, up to 5 pipe joints are inserted into the trench and encased in screened, suitable fine material. A coded route warning tape is inserted at the desired height and the trench is filled with the remaining removed and prepared material. During the entire laying process, the trench remains protected by an integrated travelling formwork device and thus the road body remains stable. This is followed by specially developed, multi-layer compaction and, finally, automated restoration of the road shoulder. An integrated satellite receiver simultaneously provides precise position documentation with an accuracy of 2 to 5 cm. Lateral displacement of the laying unit minimises edge loads on the asphalt pavement. LAYJET technology is considered by experts to be by far the most gentle laying method along roads in the road shoulder, as the road body remains stable during the entire laying process and its homogeneity is hardly disturbed.

All soil classes!

The LAYJET milling machine can be used on any type of surface. It handles asphalt, concrete and heavy soil classes with ease. Even with small corner radii of up to 4 meters, the laying process takes place continuously without having to lift the milling machine, which means that the stability of the road body is fully maintained as the milling slit is permanently protected.

Minimal impact on traffic!

While other construction methods involve weeks of road closures, noise and dirt pollution, LAYJET construction sites are barely noticeable. Roads can be reused without restriction immediately after cable laying is complete. Even driveways or asphalt sections that have been milled across can be driven on again immediately.

Resource preservation and climate-conscious!

A recent study that was conducted in the framework of a bachelor thesis and accompanied by the Technical University of Graz has shown that the LAYJET method produces seventeen times less harmful CO2 compared to the conventional open trench method. LAYJET additionally had the ecological footprint of the LAYJET technology calculated by renowned STRATECO from Graz and contractually agreed to make the entire quantities of CO2 emitted by the LAYJET method CO2 neutral by means of purchasing Humus Certificates from the Kaindorf ecological region. On top of that all carbon emissions that cannot be avoided, such as those produced by the company building, air and car travel as well as other operational processes are compensated. LAYJET voluntarily incurs costs in the six-digit range for this purpose every year. This is how LAYJET assumes responsibility for its actions in the sense of a future worth living and fit for grandchildren.
