Friction Testers

Locked Wheel Surface Friction Tester (SFT)

Overview

ICC’s SFT measures pavement friction accurately in line with ASTM E274 standards, helping to improve road safety by identifying surface changes, measuring macrotexture, and testing applied treatments. It’s instrumental in determining safe friction levels and pinpointing resurfacing needs. This advanced equipment, featuring a custom trailer and dual-sided testing vehicles, comes in both standard and extended-range models.

Benefits
