Portable Friction Tester

In order to further develop its research capacity and to ensure optimum service to its partners and clients, BRRC regularly acquires new testing and measuring equipment.

The Centre carries out specific laboratory and field tests, as well as condition surveys of roads and motorways, on request (at fixed rates).


The Portable Friction Tester allows continuous measurements of the skid resistance of road markings and road surfaces over a given distance, in situations where the British pendulum tester (portable skid resistance tester) cannot be used.
