Stripemaster® 3 Pavement Marking Retroreflectometer

Pavement markings are an important asset component to the roadway system. Proper management of this asset requires the gathering, analysis. and monitoring of  multiple characteristics  of the  markings. The StripeMaster® 3 adds full assessment and post measurement  analysis  features. With the StripeMaster® 3, the marking's retroreflectivity, color, type, size, material, and much more can be easily entered and stored for effective and detailed post-measurement analysis and management; assisting in the efficient and comprehensive management of this important asset.

With three models to choose from, you can select the product that fits your agency's or company's needs and budget the best.

*StripeMaster® 3 is the replacement product for our StripeMaster® 2 Touch Retroreflectometer which has been discontinued*
