The RetroTek-M vehicle mounted dynamic retroreflectometer measures in ‘Real Driving Conditions’ the retroreflectivity (RL) and night-time visibility of Road Lines, Markings and Symbols.
Measures simultaneously the retroreflectivity (RL) of line and road symbol markings across the full width of the traffic lane.
Also measures the absence and presence of road markers (studs – RRPMs)
Providing technologically advanced, cost-effective and user-friendly solutions to the problem of maintaining night visibility on highway networks.

Customer Referrals & Comments on RetroTek-M
“The flexibility of the RetroTek-M has allowed Northern Road Markings to meet and exceed the stringent requirements set by Transort Infrastructure Ireland, its ease of setup, its ability to measure line retroreflectivity, the presence/absence of barrier reflectors and road markers on both sides of a lane as well as providing a platform to capture junction condition makes the RetroTek-M a competitive choice.”
“The flexibility of RetroTek has allowed ERC to meet and exceed the stringent requirements set by ERA. Its easy setup, ability to measure line retroreflectivity on both sides of a lane and then illustrate these results on the MultiView mapping & video interactive platform, made the RetroTek-M a competitive choice”
“Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) were very happy with the survey results and impressed with the RetroTek-OnLineView software software with interactive data base and video analysis. The timescale was tight (12 weeks) and delivery was enabled by the efficiency of the RetroTek-M system.”
“ERA was very happy with the survey results and impressed with the RetroTek MultiView Cloud software with interactive data base, mapping and video analysis. It gives good overview of results and opportunity very easy to plan further road marking replacement plans.
The timescale was tight and due to weather conditions, it was very hard to keep in timescale. But despite that the delivery was enabled by the efficiency of the contractor ERC Consulting Ltd and RetroTek-M system”.
