Public Works Expo featuring SMITH Surface-Prep Solutions

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

APWA Public Works Expo!

The APWA Public Works Expo is just right around the corner, and SMITH will be a featured exhibitor! 

We invite you to visit us at booth #1309 August 27-28 and discover how SMITHing makes a difference when it comes to safer, sustainable surfaces on YOUR walkways, bikeways and roadways.


At the exhibit, you can demonstrate the most technologically advanced equipment for reducing sidewalk trip hazards, removing pavement markings without damaging sensitive surfaces, and preparing surfaces with the right profiles to assure that new coatings last!


Take a chance at spinning the 10-profile prize wheel (getting the right 10 surface profiles when preparing asphalt and concrete surfaces is critical to performance). In less than what it takes to spin the wheel, we can show you why getting the right surface profile matters.

When it lands, you’ll have a chance to win the grandprize  SMITH FS050 for your agency,  a $1043 value FREE! This handy tool is a simple but powerful surface preparator. Ideal for punch work, touchups, and correcting surface imperfections.

After you enter the convention center, follow this map to booth #1309, then ask a SMITH Rep to spin the wheel. A few minutes later you’ll have the complete details you need to create safer, sustainable surfaces and lasting memories.

The fun is waiting for you at the SMITH exhibit with no purchase necessary. See you in Orlando!

Visit SMITH at APWA Florida Public Works Expo!

Booth #210

SMITH will be unveiling a faster and easier way to prepare and make your asphalt and concrete surfaces safer and sustainable.
Only Florida Public Works members will have an exclusive up-close look at the new SMITH Automatic Engagement System (AES). The AES takes the guesswork out of preserving pavements, removing markings, and eliminating ADA trip-and-fall injuries by SMITHing. With a simple push of the AES button, your operator will have the peace of mind knowing his work will be completed quickly, easily, and correctly – every time.
Anyone who visits booth #210 and pushes the AES button will quickly understand how simple the work can be. Leave your business card for a “reflective on-the-job ruler slap band.”
SMITH Manufacturing is the #1 producer of surface preparation equipment since 1990, headquartered in Pompano Beach, FL. SMITHing is a faster, easier, and more cost-effective way to help make your roadways, bikeways, and walkways safer and longer-lasting.

Surface-Prep Discovery:
We made a discovery that profoundly changes how contractors can prepare concrete and asphalt surfaces in 2017. 
Traditionally getting surfaces properly prepared for new coatings, markings or overlays required costly investments of specialized equipment like shotblasters and waterblasters.   As it turns out, you only need to own inexpensive simple to operator rotary or drum style scarifiers to prepare any concrete or asphalt surface to the right profile standard to make your installations last.  

To learn more, please visit SMITH at their factory, trade shows or our distributors.

Perfect Prep in Four Steps?

We found the perfect way to prepare surfaces. It’s a 4-step SMITHing process that not only removes surface contaminants, but creates the right pavement surface porosity to maximize mechanical bonding for your new pavement markings, without surface micro-cracking. Learn more here.
