Speed Bump Installation Guide
The Ramp People’s range of speed bumps are made from recycled high density rubber and are available in high - visibility solid black and painted yellow colour.
Our 50mm high speed bumps have been designed to be crossed comfortably at speeds up to 10mph where as our 75mm high speed bumps have been designed to be crossed comfortably at speeds up to 5mph. The TRP range of speed cushions are designed to reduce vehicle speeds down to 20-30mph.
Our speed bump kits are sold as a complete package of all the components required to install the speed bumps. All standard speed bump mid-sections have cats - eye style reflectors fitted as standard. All road humps are designed to support up to a 20,000kgs articulated lorry - weights in excess of this will damage the speed bumps, as will excess speed by extremely heavy loads. For HGV traffic management please select the heavy duty speed bumps.

- Can support vehicles up to 40,000kg
- Embedded light reflectors are standard on both sides of all middle sections

Before installing your speed bumps, make sure that the road surface that you will be fitting them onto is clean, dry, and undamaged. Any damage to the surface should be repaired before the speed ramps are installed to provide a reasonably flat and consistent surface.
Lay out your speed bumps in the area you want to install them to make sure that they fit comfortably in your available space and that they lie flat on the surface. Mark out on the substrate surface where the road humps are to be drilled and fitted. Then either drill the holes in the substrate through the bumps’ pre-made fixing holes, or remove the ramps after marking the position of the drill holes, and drill the holes independently of the speed bumps. We strongly suggest you drill a couple of test holes first to ensure the drill bit is of the correct size for the material you are drilling into. Finally, insert the fixings into the hole, and secure your speed bumps in place.
IMPORTANT - Positioning of your speed bumps:
- To maximise the life of your speed bumps, vehicles should drive over the product in a straight line. Vehicles turning on the speed bump may damage the speed bump and fixings and will likely cause excessive discomfort to the driver and passengers.
- Speed bumps should be set back from junctions to reduce the chance of vehicles stalling when pulling away. For more information on speed hump regulations visit gov.uk.
All our speed bumps and speed cushions are supplied with universal fixings suitable for tarmac and/or concrete, as per image below:
At The Ramp People we also stock a range of wall and pole mounted speed bump warning signs featuring a high contrast reflective surface for installation in car parks, private roads and areas where traffic calming has been installed.
The security of the fixings / adhesive should be checked on a regular basis. Circumstances will vary, based upon the volume of foot traffic etc., but as a guide, monthly inspections would be advisable.
