Airfield Marking Assessments

Skip-Line conducts airfield marking assessments to establish a baseline of conditions to determine areas of critical need and prioritize areas of work to be performed.  In addition to retroreflectivity values, Skip-Line conducts visual condition inspections, confirmation of marking dimensions and locations as well as a complete inventory of markings.  Visual inspection criteria include bead embedment, paint conditions, contamination, bond and color. Markings are digitized into the Spec-Rite Online platform for data management, visualization and analysis.

Baseline Metrics

Powered by Spec-Rite

Establishing baseline metrics are vital to predict maintenance and establish budgets and marking plans. However, they are also optional. Once the airport decides which metrics it wants to subscribe to, the information is collected by expert airfield technicians on the Spec-Rite Mobile Assessment Platform (MAP). The following baseline metrics are available:

Comprehensive Markings Compliance Inspection

Complete video/photo imagery with GPS reference points

FAA Part 139 & ICAO Marking Conditions Inspection

Complete Marking Dimension & Placement Verification

Equipment, Workforce & Material Analysis

All of the data is then entered into our patent pending Spec-Rite software platform which provides data that can be used for budgeting, FAA and ICAO inspection reporting, resource management and future work plans.

On-Going Assessments

Air traffic increases. Staff changes. Retro-reflectivity diminishes. FAA and ICAO compliance standards change.
