As a result of being purpose built to meet the needs of our clients, our machines are able to deliver a wide range of services including retexturing certain road surfaces.

Our machines are particularly effective on Stone Mastic Asphalt (SMA). This surface is binder rich and can have low early life skid resistance, however our expert team and ultra high-pressure water jetting units can easily and effectively manage this.

In order to bring surfaces comfortably within acceptable levels of SCRIM and texture depth we use our OSPREY and MERLIN units. Our flagship machine, OSPREY, is a large articulated unit that has proven to be invaluable for large-scale retexturing works. After the proven success of OSPREY, we developed and built the MERLIN unit to deliver the same first class results from a more compact unit, making it the perfect machine for small roadwork jobs. MERLIN features the same industry leading technology on an eight wheel, rear steer, rigid unit. This smaller chassis is not only compact, it is also extremely manoeuvrable and versatile for working on the roads.
