If you are using speed ramps as part of your traffic management systems then you will know of the importance of using clearly visible warning signs. They should not be used within 15 metres of a corner or junction and should be used at intervals along a route - bear in mind that emergency vehicles will also have to pass over them so they cannot be too severe. It is possible to buy 5 miles per hour and 10mph speed ramps and these can be formed by simply adding together black and yellow ramp sections and then neatly finished with tapered end sections. These ramps or speed bumps are sometimes known as Sleeping policemen (or a sleeping policeman!) and are usually fixed or bolted to the road, although they can often simply be laid on the ground without any drilling, bolting or bonding.
Instant speed ramps are available in one-piece striped sections and are made of heavy duty moulded rubber. They can be bolted to the ground for a permanent installation (see our fixing bolts suitable for concrete or tarmac surfaces) and have cat's eyes for night time safety. Whether you are using instant or 5mph or 10mph speed bumps remember to look at our range or temporary or permanent signs along with the sign mounting options. Some of the speed bumps can also be used as cable protectors although this may require the more heavy duty rubber moulding type. Parking blocks are another useful item for the parking facilities of commercial buildings, showrooms etc. They are made of weatherproof moulded rubber with each block being half yellow and half black – fixing bolts are included. Central Source can also provide speed cushions and kerb ramps as part of our package of comprehensive, traffic management solutions.
