High-quality snowplow blades to protect the roadway and runway
GK5: THE LONG-LASTING AND ABRASION-RESISTANT RUBBER-CERAMIC BLADE.
No jumping on dry paved road surfaces!
The low-noise GK5 blade is made of rubber with ceramic inserts. Thanks to the blade’s elastic materials and clever design, the GK5 adapts perfectly to every paved surface. It is the ideal solution for removing snow in areas that require pavement and plow protection. This is the only rubber blade that won’t jump when used on dry surfaces — an absolute must for operations. The highly elastic materials, embedded ceramic inlays and specially curved steel fastening neck ensure excellent results while protecting the surface of the road and cleaning very well.
- Kueper North America strongly recommends testing GK5 over in-pavement lights prior to use.
Caster wheel and plow height must be adjusted accordingly to maximize the efficiency of the blade and to reduce opportunities for damaging in pavement light housings.
- In pavement light mounting and operation must comply with FAA Advisory Circular 150/5345-46 Specification for Runway and Taxiway Light Fixtures 03/02/2016 in order to use Kueper Plow Blades.
- Kueper North America strongly recommends the use of cast iron plow rings around in pavement lights.
- New or replaced in pavement lights must be re-checked against FAA Advisory Circular 150/5345-46 prior to continued plowing operation.
