ASFT is the second such partnership established in the past 12 months. PPP strives to bring first-in-class solutions to road safety issues in North America and beyond.
As a leader in road safety infrastructure, a reputation for innovation, and a worldwide network of thousands of engineers, entrepreneurs, and innovators, PPP is often presented with “first-look” opportunities for new-to-market and new-to-world innovations. “We have the honor of previewing multiple innovations each month. These innovations are in various stages of development and commercialization. Regardless if the innovation is a fit for our line, we want to encourage and assist those that are making efforts to improve road safety.”, says PPP’s CEO Greg Driskell.
Merely five months ago, PPP announced its partnership with Screening Eagle Technologies, a Swiss-based manufacturer of retroreflectivity equipment. Now PPP has partnered with ASFT with its innovative walk-behind continuous friction measurement equipment. ASFT is an internationally established manufacturer of more than 30 years of Continuous Friction Measuring Equipment. The Sweden-based company provides a full range of continuous friction measurement equipment including cars, trucks, trailers, and the T2GO walk-behind instrument.
The T2GO is a highly versatile friction tester that can measure friction on any surface both dry and contaminated. It is ideal for measuring in areas where it might be difficult to get access with a larger trailer or vehicle-type friction tester.
This two-wheeled portable instrument is extremely versatile and can be used on pedestrian walkways, bike lanes, intersections, horizontal curves, airfields, racetracks, and so much more. The T2GO provides continuous measurement feedback and reporting in near-inch increments.
Driskell says, “We are excited about leveraging these new partnerships to improve the safety of our North American roadways. Furthering our commitment to “Bring innovative road safety solutions to forward, thinking organizations that protect and save the lives of the fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters that work on and use our roads every day. And we are not done yet!”
