W.D.M. Limited’s entire fleet of SCRIM ® road survey machines has successfully come through the annual UK accreditation trials – plus the new vehicle built specifically for the US market.
A total of 18 machines were assessed by TRL at the MIRA track near Nuneaton –the eight machines from WDM’s UK fleet, the new US SCRIM, plus vehicles from Northern Ireland and Eire, were issued with accreditation certificates. All the WDM ® machines also achieved a high rating.
The SCRIM ® road survey machines undergo annual assessments under current HD28 standards, audited by the Transport Research Laboratory. This is to ensure each vehicle delivers accurate wet road skid resistance measurements, which are both reliable and reproducible.
WDM’s new US vehicle is being shipped out to its subsidiary company, WDM USA, in May to start offering skid resistance surveys to American road authorities.
A SCRIM ® road survey machine built by WDM ® for the Federal Highways Administration, which has been operating in the US for the past three years, also successfully negotiated the accreditation trials.
