Our speed bumps are all made to withstand frequent use in busy areas. The type of traffic in the area may impact the speed bump required.

Our ramps all feature reflective areas or cat eyes. This ensures that drivers can view them from a distance, giving advanced warning.

They work by forcing vehicles to slow down to avoid an uncomfortable ride over the bump. Going over a speed ramp too fast will be uncomfortable for passengers in the vehicles.
How to get speed bumps on your street?
If you live on a private road, you can install them yourself. If it is a shared private road, so long as other residents agree that they are required, you can install them. If the road is public, you will need to speak to your local council, who will be able to advise the best procedure.
