A speed ramp offers a highly affordable means for slowing vehicles. Speed ramps are made from modular rubber and deter drivers from speeding in an area. The modular design of the ramp makes it very easy to install and is one of the most efficient and cost-effective traffic calming methods.

What is a speed ramp?

A speed ramp is strip of rubber sections that can be installed on the road to slow motorists down. These ramps, also known as speed bumps, deter cars from going too fast over them - if drivers are too fast they risk damaging their car.

By using a speed ramp along with correct signage you can easily deter cars from speeding in the area. The signs will be sure to give the motorists plenty of notice and the speed ramp will deter drivers from going too fast. A speed ramp like the Pittman 50mm Speed Bump Kit is perfect for areas where regular car traffic passes through.

Speed ramps are not suited to public roads as they may be too severe a bump. A speed table is a wider, longer speed ramp that does not slow vehicle as much but allows traffic to flow where needed. This may be better for the likes of a city or town environment. Use a speed cushion installation where emergency vehicles are concerned. Speed cushions can be offset to allow larger vehicle axles to fit around the device without having to lower the speed.

This speed ramp kit comes with all the bolts, mid-sections and end-caps you need to create your ramp. Available in various kit sizes this ramp is ideal for residential areas, shopping centre car parks and many more.

For immediate danger to pedestrians we would recommend our XPT-75 Speed Bump Kit 75mm - a severe bump, but perfect for reducing the speed of vehicles where it may concern pedestrians.

Speed ramp for HGVs?

If you need a speed ramp that would be suitable for using with HGVs try our JSP Ridgeback Speed Bump Kit 50mm. This tough speed ramp is made for use with vehicles up to 44 tonnes, ideal for harder wearing areas such as warehouses and freight depots.

Speed Ramps FAQ

Yes, speed ramps and speed bumps are essentially the same thing and serve the same purpose - slowing vehicle traffic. Speed ramps or speed bumps use a shorter design from front to back with a higher incline for a more direct traffic calming method.

Depending on the height of the speed ramp they can generally slow traffic to approxiamtely 5km/h up to 20km/h. The higher the speed ramp the slower vehicles must go in order to pass over them safely.

When installed correctly, rubber speed ramps can last for many years. However, their lifespan depends on the installation and the type & volume of traffic on the road. Call the team at Pittman to help choose the best product for the job.

Rubber can maintain better shape than concrete over time. Modular sections are also easily replaced if they become worn or damaged. If installing multiple traffic calming measures, it is advised that the layout includes at least one vehicle’s length between them.

Use a speed ramp where there is a strong need to slow vehicles, such as areas with heavy pedestrian traffic.

For areas like towns or cities where traffic needs to flow relatively normally consider using speed tables or speed cushions.
