Types of
Speed Bumps

Speed Bumps

A sharp bump that aims to slow vehicles immediately. Speed bumps are generally shorter from
front to back.

Speed Cushions

These speed bumps are longer from front to back and generally have spaces left in between
on public roads. The longer distance slows vehicle traffic but not as severely as typical speed
bump. Suitable for public roads where emergency vehicles can maintain speeds and avoid the
cushions in emergencies.

Speed Tables

Ideal for towns and cities. The extra-long ramps allow traffic to flow without slowing them too
much. They are often used as pedestrian crossing for city environments.

What are Speed Bumps used for?

Speed bumps are used to slow vehicle traffic and reduce the risk of traffic accidents. They are suitable for slowing cars, trucks and emergency vehicles. Speed bumps work by causing a hard uncomfortable drive if the driver does not slow down sufficiently. Higher bumps will slow vehicles more considerably.

Modular rubber speed bumps are much easier to install than concrete or tarmac. Modular sections can be bolted down easily while damaged or worn sections are easily replaced. They are much more cost-effective and result in faster project finishes.

To install speed bumps a thorough risk assessment of the area should be carried out. Once the right product is selected clean the area and insert the speed bumps. Pre-drill the holes for each section and insert them as necessary. Once back in place tighten them into position. Repeat the steps until the speed bump is complete. 

Drivers should not change lanes or swerve in order to avoid the speed bumps. The spaces at the centre or sides of the bumps are for drainage purposes.
