Are You Considering Installing Rubber Speed Humps?
A speed hump installation is a great way to calm traffic and improve safety on your site. Many companies have already taken this step and noticed the safety benefits. However, once the decision has been made, a whole set of other considerations comes into play. Chief amongst these is the type of speed hump that would work best for your site. There are many different kinds of speed humps that are made from different materials. In our opinion, the best type of speed bump is made of rubber, and we would like to explain why that is.
The Ease of Installation
A rubber speed hump is easy to install when compared to some of its rivals. The rubber hump can be easily fixed to any road surface with basic tools and no specialised training. A rubber hump can be moved into place by a couple of workers, and many of them can be installed in a single day. In comparison, concrete speed humps take many workers to carry because of their weight, major disruption is also caused during their installation, and it can take days for the concrete to cure.
Environmentally Friendly, Yet Tough
All of our rubber speed humps are made entirely from recycled rubber making them environmentally friendly. However, they are also very tough; they will not crack or distort in the hotter months that we experience here in Perth. Because they are made from rubber, our speed humps will not cause damage to cars that pass over them too quickly. Damage caused to cars by speed humps can result in insurance claims and legal problems that we would all like to avoid.
The Increased Levels of Road Safety
Another fantastic benefit of using rubber wheel stops is the flexibility for your site. They can be fitted with reflective surfaces to improve low light and nighttime visibility. High visibility colours can be used in the construction process to make them more noticeable during the day. This makes them an ideal choice for traffic calming in high risk areas, such as car parks, schools, and hospitals. The rubberised surface of the speed humps also offers plenty of grip in wet weather conditions to reduce the chances of slipping.
