At PITTMAN™ we specialise in modular rubber speed bumps – the favoured choice for traffic calming in Ireland. Speed bumps are just one of the modular rubber traffic calming systems that we offer: others include speed humps, speed cushions, temporary speed bumps and speed tables.
What is the purpose of speed bumps?
Speed bumps are used to slow vehicle traffic. The bump they cause deter drivers from driving over them at high speeds.
A speed cushion or speed table will provide a less severe bump. This will slow traffic considerably but not to a near stop like speed bumps would. This is ideal for urban settings where traffic needs to remain flowing.
How to install speed bumps?
Speed bumps can be bolted directly into the ground for instant traffic calming. Modular speed bumps are very easy to install and are much more cost-effective than concrete speed bumps.
Road bumps deter cars from speeding. The bump causes a car to jolt uncomfortably if driven over too quickly. Use a road bump where there is immediate danger to pedestrians or build up areas.
Why use a modular rubber traffic calming system?
Rubber speed bumps have distinct advantages over a concrete or tarmac formed speed ramp. The precise moulding on a rubber bump means the height is uniform across the width of the speed bump and speed is regulated exactly. There is a great difference on the deflection achieved by a 50mm speed bump and an irregularly formed 30mm concrete version. Remember also rubber speed bumps will not chip, rot or crack. The modular sections are easily replaced if damaged or worn, whereas repairing a tarmac speed bump is very problematic. Foremost is the ease of installation of rubber speed bumps – supplied in modular bolt-down sections – fitting is fast, safe and less disruptive than forming a speed ramp from concrete or tarmac.
