RetroTek-D for Road Striping Contractors

The Most Efficient and Cost Effective Solution for Validating Pavement Marking Condition

Increasingly Departments of Transportation & Road Agencies require Road Striping Contractors to conduct pavement marking condition assessment surveys soon after new striping has been applied and at a defined period after the striping has been in service and duration of the contract. This validation or verification of pavement marking quality is an additional cost for Road Stripers.

The RetroTek-D technology will help road striping contractors reduce cost, increase performance, and ensure compliance even for the toughest state or municipality specifications. Our innovative RetroTek-D dynamic pavement marking retroreflectometer, includes the latest technology developments in Machine Vision, LED lighting and Artificial Intelligence to make road pavement marking condition assessment more efficient for Road Striping Contractors and more cost effective. In fact, because our secure front-mounted RetroTek-D system measures across the full lane width in one pass, we reduce pavement 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 retroreflective accuracy as handheld devices at normal traffic speeds, we eliminate the need for traffic management, road or lane closures. This includes measurement of the retroreflectivity (mcd/m²/lux) of right longitudinal line and left longitudinal line striping and critical center lane markings, safety warnings and symbols. It also records presence or absence of road pavement markers and day contrast ratios of stripes and markings, as used by ADAS safety warning systems in vehicles. For Road Striping Contractors, the RetroTek system provides the most cost effective option for validating pavement marketing condition.

Efficient, safe & easy

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

Our Customer's feedback

“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.
