RetroTek-D the most efficient and cost effective solution for validating road marking condition

Increasingly Road Authorities require Road Marking Contractors to conduct road marking condition assessment surveys after new markings have been applied and at a defined period after the markings has been in service. This validation or verification of road marking quality is an additional cost for Road Marking Contractors.

Our innovative RetroTek-D dynamic road marking retroreflectometer, includes the latest technology developments in machine vision, LED lighting and articifial intelligence to make road pavement marking condition assessment more efficient for Road Marking Contractors and more cost effective. In fact, because our secure front-mounted RetroTek-D system measures across the full lane width we reduce your survey costs by up to 50%. Unlike side-mounted systems , no precision driving close to the line is required as the RetroTek technology follows the markings automatically. That is less survey operator time and lower fuel costs too. Providing the same level of accuracy as handheld devices at normal traffic speeds, we eliminate the need for road or lane closures. This includes measurement of the retroreflectivity (RL) of right and left lines and critical centre markings, safety warnings and symbols. It also records presence or absence of road studs and day contrast ratios of markings, as used by ADAS safety warning systems in vehicles.

Efficient, safe & easy

50% reduction in survey operator and fuel costs compared to side mounted retroreflectometers.

Customer Referrals & Comments on RetroTek Mobile Retroreflectometers

“RetroTek, a competitive choice.”

“The flexibility of the RetroTek 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 reflective pavement markings (RPMs) / road studs on both sides of a lane as well as providing a platform to capture junction condition makes the RetroTek a competitive choice.”

Mark Kelly, CEO of Northern Road Markings Ltd. and Kestrel Thermoplastics

"technical support is second to none"

“We are delighted with the performance of the RetroTek as it measures the striping on both sides of the lane in one pass without the need to switch the sensor from one side of the vehicle to the other. At the end of surveying, all the data can be quickly prepared & sent to district TX Dot officials, without the need for hours of post-processing.
The RetroTek technical support is second to none.”

Jay Green, veteran retroreflectometer operator, Stripe-A-Zone
