Why You Need to Learn About RubberForm’s Different Speed Bumps

 

Are you looking for the best speed bumps on the market? Many business owners are. Speeding is a factor in many vehicular accidents; it gives drivers less time to respond and it can increase the severity of an accident. Traffic calming tools have been proven to be an effective way to slow down speeding drivers. 

One such traffic calming device is a speed bump. Speed bumps use vertical deflection to slow down drivers and improve safety traffic conditions for both drivers and pedestrians. 

RubberForm offers three different types of speed bumps. You might be wondering, “why? Isn’t a speed bump just, well, a speed bump?” Well, yes, but also no. Ultimately, our speed bumps have a main function – to encourage drivers to slow down. However, speed bumps can come in various lengths and heights. 

Let’s take a closer look: 

 

RubberForm MLSB Speed Bump:

Rubber Speed Bumps (MLSB)

Instead of using spikes, lag bolts, and adhesives, buy our MLSB 2.5” which is targeted for traffic speeds below 10 mph. If temporary, you can simply put it down and link them together as needed, and rest assured they will stay in place. However, if you’re going for permanent or semi-permanent use, we recommend anchoring them. 

Perhaps you may have better use for our MLSB 3” or MLSB 4” speed bump. These portable and freestanding bumps are ideal for construction sites or wherever you may have aggressive traffic.  They are ideal for temporary traffic stops and slow traffic to 3-5 mph. 

The 4” is ideal for high-weight vehicles. The more units you buy, the better: several units can give you unlimited strength and coverage. 

Please note, our MLSB  4” is not recommended for pedestrian traffic or normal vehicle use. 

Another perk of our portable rubber speed bump is that they feature a dovetail design which allows for unlimited connectivity. Customers have the opportunity to create the exact length they need. 

Height plays a factor into your desired speed limit, and is something we can accommodate for you! 

 

RubberForm RK-10 Speed Bump:

Speed Bumps (RK)

The RK-10 speed bump is easy to deploy, install, and recover. It also allows for buyers to add additional center modules for custom lengths.

Worried about vehicle damage? No need to fret, our highly visible speed bumps will effectively slow down traffic without damaging your vehicle or tires. It’s also just as easy to remove as it is to install. 

Place our RK-10 speed bump on streets or main residential roads to increase pedestrian safety in high traffic areas.  

 

Dirt Road Speed Bumps:

The Importance of Traffic Calming

Installing devices that slow down motor vehicles or reduces the amount of cars traveling down a street is known as traffic calming. For many reasons, professionals, such as, transportation planners or traffic engineers, implement strategies that force safe driving. The most important motive being to decrease the number of automobile accidents, but also lessening pollution caused by cars.

If your community needs help combating the danger that speeding cars cause pedestrians and motorists, traffic calming is your answer. Our top of the line recycled rubber speed humps and tables force drivers to slow to a rate of 20-30 mph. The durability and easy installation of these products make them a cost friendly response to a life threatening problem.

An increase of safety is achieved with the installation of traffic calming equipment in residential areas. Using products like speed humps and speed tables forces motorists to slow down, and may stop some drivers from traveling down certain streets. More traffic safety, means residence may spend more of their time outside. An increase of pedestrian activity in neighborhoods, means a decline in motor vehicle use. This also results in less pollution for the community.

It may be impossible to stop all traffic accidents from occurring, but using our speed humps and tables will discourage reckless driving and help save lives. All of our products are made in the U.S.A and constructed with 100% recycled rubber and plastic.
