With designs and lines by Equus, projects in both the public and private sectors are completed with precision, professionalism and joy.

Our Success Stories

These are some of our team’s favorite projects from our pavement marking work across the Washington, D.C. metro area. These works range from road safety enhancements to beautifying dull spaces into vibrant, culturally engaged community hubs. Each of these installations has left a lasting impact on us and our community.

We can help you with:

Thermoplastic Roadway Markings

Our thermoplastic roadway markings are highly durable and resistant to weather, traffic, and other environmental factors. They are also highly visible, helping to enhance safety and reduce the risk of accidents. With our precision installation and maintenance services, you can rest assured that your markings will remain clear and visible for years to come.

Multi-Medium Pavement Markings

We offer multi-medium pavement markings that employ different types of materials for pavement markings on pavement, parking lots, bus, and bike lanes. Two commonly used materials are traffic paint and epoxy. Traffic paint is an acrylic water-based paint that is environmentally friendly. Epoxy is a two-part system that results in a more durable and long-lasting marking. It is perfect for high-traffic areas, such as interstate highways. Epoxy markings also have better resistance to abrasion, chemicals, and weathering when compared to traffic latex markings.

Unique Pavement Markings

Equus uses Streetbond & Ruby Lake Glass HFST for our unique designs including, murals, bike lanes, parking lots, basketball courts, and even playgrounds! The pavement coating involves applying very high-quality aggregate to the pavement using a polymer binder to restore and/or maintain pavement friction. This material is environmentally friendly and invigorates the look of the pavement as we traditionally use bright colors!

Other Services

Line Removal

We use a scarifier or a power washer to remove existing lines or markings from pavement, courts, and fields.

Wheel Stop Installation

Wheel stoppers can be installed in parking spaces to prevent cars from rolling into other spaces. Equus can paint the wheel stops with bright stripes to make them easily visible.


Lines and markings often need a refresh to maintain the minimum level of thickness. Equus can refresh those older lines and markings to make them look brand new!
