GripTester is the world’s leading trailer based continuous surface friction measuring device. Since its first inception 20 years ago GripTester is in operation worldwide being used everyday to make the world’s airports and highways flow safely reducing the risk of wet skidding incidents.



“Authorities should endeavour to ensure that appropriate skid resistance is provided across the whole network, both for safety reasons in respect of skidding and to provide a defence in case of litigation” (Code of Practice for Maintenance Management, published by The Institution of Highways and Transportation)

It is now more important than ever that all local authorities have an effective monitoring process across their entire road network in order to meet the requirements placed upon them. As one the UK�s leading suppliers of Skid Resistance Testing and equipment we can help. Whether you need to test your:

  • Entire Network
  • Strategic Routes

  • Retextured Sites (Before and After)

With this in mind as, market leaders in transportation safety and pioneers of the highly effective GripTester have created a greatly advanced MK2 GripTester.

The GripTester, arguably the most cost effective, reliable and deployable skid resistance tester, has recently undertaken major trials at the Transport Research Laboratory in Crowthorne where outstanding results have been achieved for repeatability and reproducibility both in straight lines and on road curvature. These results show that the GripTester will not only outperform any other device available but will make the local authority testing and analysis task significantly easier.
