ClearSight® Rolled Vegetation Control
ClearSight Rolled Vegetation Control Matting is the ideal roadside management treatment to prevent vegetation growth under and around guardrails, signposts and fencing. ClearSight Rolled Vegetation Control Matting comes in 200’ roll lengths as well as custom lengths for curved road areas. It installs twice as fast as weed abatement mats with fewer laborers. ClearSight Rolled Vegetation Control Matting reduces herbicide use and labor costs to maintain median landscaping.
California Preferred Purchasing
California “state agencies are required to purchase and use environmentally preferable products (EPP) that have a reduced effect on human health and the environment when compared with competing goods that serve the same purpose.” (Source: Caltrans Sustainability Roadmap 2018-2019). Caltrans further states “Caltrans is also committed to increasing the procurement of recycled products across all State Agency Buy Recycled Campaign (SABRC) categories. The Caltrans Sustainable Purchasing Program (administered by DPAC) will implement new strategies to increase procurement of EPP products in the top five spend categories over the next two years.” (Emphasis added). Tire derived products (ClearSight® is a tire derived product) are in Caltrans’ top five spend categories.
“Caltrans is researching the practice of requiring Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) to collect high-quality, regionally applicable, standardized data for the environmental impacts of manufacturing select construction materials to support better decision-making and create market incentives to reduce the climate impact of construction materials we commonly use.” (Emphasis added).
U.S. Rubber has looked at ClearSight® Vegetation Control through an environmental microscope conforming to ISO 14025, which reflects our commitment to measuring and reducing the overall product impact. We have registered this EPD with Labeling Sustainability.
