The second category of customers work for cities, counties and states and are responsible for winter maintenance of their respective roadways.
The job is high stakes. Fleet managers are making decisions under pressure on how to treat that surface to restore it to a high enough level of friction so that they keep the traveling public safe while not going over budget.
Most often fleet managers are resource constrained and their team has varied experience. Decision making is subjective. For these managers knowing when to stop treating the surface can save thousands of dollars in chemicals in each winter event.
The RT3® Friction Tester is a tool that generates objective, reliable data that allows managers confidence in knowing that the friction level has been restored or that it is still not safe. Unlike our competition, the RT3® friction testers are very effective for winter maintenance. They were originally designed to work in this harsh environment. They are reliable, durable and easy to use.
