SCRIM® / SCRIMTEX
The SCRIM® helps reduce accident rates by measuring the wet skidding resistance of a road surface and is ideal for network skidding resistance surveys, with a daily survey capacity of 120 to 180 miles depending upon road type.
W.D.M. Limited operate a fleet of survey vehicles to provide safe, reliable and cost-effective assessment of road condition. Its survey services are delivered by export operators using an ISO:200 third party accredited quality system. The service is available worldwide.
Road Assessment Vehicle Surveys
Road Assessment Vehicles (RAVs) carry out high speed data acquisition and recording of surface conditions, including automatic recognition of surface cracking. This gives performance indicators to enable maintenance work to be prioritized and National Indicators to be calculated.
Helping to lower accident rates by identifying where there is a risk of wet-road skidding. Since the mid-70’s the Sideway-force Coefficient Routine Investigation Machine (SCRIM®) method has been used by Highway Authorities to indicate those lengths of road where the skid resistance is below investigatory levels.
