Posted by Terry Keenan in traffic calming devices

Speed BumpWe all know that driving too fast can lead to accidents, and speeding has taken too many lives. Yet everywhere people still drive recklessly in parking lots, dropping kids off at school, in construction zones and more. A simple solution for many applications is to find a traffic calming device that works. For optimal safety, choose a product that is best suited for your needs, whether it's keeping your construction site or school parking lot safe. Look below to see what device is best suited based on where it will be located and the added benefits:

Speed Hump Kits: These kits are perfect for schools and residential areas.  The speed hump is a mini section and is placed in the middle of the road.  They are small and compact, and come in different model sizes for desired width.

Rubber Speed Bump: There are all kinds of rubber speed bumps that have different functions. The higher speed bumps, 3" tall and 4" tall, are for heavy-duty construction vehicles. These help slow down heavy vehicles (up to 74,000 pounds) to a safe 5 miles per hour. There are also a check point speed bumps for concerts and events, and a dirt road speed bump.

Speed Cushion: Speed cushions are perfect for slowing vehicles down while keeping traffic moving. These speed cushions are large rounded sections that are placed in the middle of roads so that cars are kept to 20-30 miles per hour.

Speed Table: A great option for municipalities. Speed tables are much larger than speed cushions and by choosing the correct size a speed table can stretch from one side of the road to the other. There are also options to add arrows going in one direction or two for better traffic flow.

Traffic Delineator: For roads and highways where traffic needs to be slowed and directed into a specific lane. Our delineator system is able to withstand impact from vehicles, which means it's reliable and safe.
