Latest Project FRICTION TESTING Canberra Airport

Runway Safety is one of the aviation industry’s largest ongoing compliance thresholds, specified by CASA and ICAO as being crucial to passenger and user safety. Built up rubber from landing aircraft can create friction hazards in wet weather, and regular friction audits allows all major airports to keep ahead of this ongoing maintenance issue. In March 2019, Canberra Airport engaged Roadline Removal to provide friction testing by continuous wet wheel methodology, and provide an electronic report showing any areas of concern. The SARSYS Friction Testing unit, a vehicle driven trailer is very efficient and provides real-time data to a vehicle mounted computer.
