Speed humps are raised devices, parabolic in shape, placed across the road to slow traffic. The sloped design over a 7 or 14 foot length of space encourages cars to slow down without coming to a halt. Often considered the most traditional physical traffic calming solutions, speed humps calm traffic more gradually then speed bumps, although less so than speed tables. They are ideal for residential roads and are generally used to bring speeds to between 10-20 mph.

Speed humps should ideally be installed in a series to create ongoing traffic calming. They are best placed mid-intersection on roads with low speed limits. Traffic Logix rubber speed humps are available in heights of 3 or 4 inches. Often used in lengths of 7 and 14 feet, the humps can be customized to any length and to the width of your roads in increments of 18".

Curved Shape

The sloped design of speed humps compels cars to slow down for effective traffic calming.

Puzzle Piece Design

Patented interlocking construction connects units like puzzle pieces, keeping them firmly in place.

Completely Customizable

Modular units allow you to customize your solution length, width, tape color, and choose striping or arrows. The opportunities are limitless.

Environmentally Friendly

Made of 100% recycled rubber, Traffic Logix speed humps are an eco-conscious way to protect your streets. Grants are often available to municipalities who are buying recycled products.

Cost Effective

Rubber speed humps are long-lasting and removable for years of continuous use. Other solutions often require costly replacements while the Traffic Logix hump units can simply be removed and reinstalled as necessary.

Highly Visible

With a choice of yellow or white highway tape embedded into each unit, the humps are highly visible, even at night or in poor lighting conditions

Driver Acceptance

Prefabricated units offer consistency at all locations, an important factor for motorist acceptance and ease of use. Unlike concrete and asphalt, rubber units maintain their shape over time and do not contract with heat or vehicle pressure.

Simple Installation

Traffic Logix speed humps are quick and easy to install by connecting the units and securing them to the road with anchors and bolts. Traffic Logix units are smaller than the industry standard for easier installation. No road closures or skilled laborers are necessary.

Removable

The speed humps can be removed for road resurfacing, snow plows, or to test the products at numerous locations. Unlike asphalt and concrete which must be destroyed during removal, the rubber humps can simply be removed and reinstalled.

Long Lasting

The Traffic Logix speed humps are maintenance free and built to resist temperature fluctuations, inclement weather conditions, and ongoing vehicle traffic.

Two year warranty

Two year warranty on speed hump components installed as per the manufacturers instructions.

Install Guide

As detailed in the limited warranty provided in connection with your purchase of this product, Traffic Logix' limited warranty only applies to traffic calming products that are correctly installed and maintained. For additional details on safe usage of traffic calming products, please refer to the conditional terms of use.

 

Installation Tools

  • Chalk
  • Measuring tape
  • Impact or hammer drills. We recommend that you have two heavy duty hammer drills (Preferrably spline drills).
  • High speed drills. We recommend that you have two electric drills.
  • Drill bits carbide tip, at least two 9/16" dia. , 10-12" long
  • 3lb Hammer
  • 10lb Sledge hammer (for final adjustment)
  • 11/16" drive socket with a 12" extension
  • Street broom
  • Utility knife or a hack saw (used for trimming the rubber as needed)
  • Crow bars, gooseneck wrecking bars
  • Portable air compressor able to maintain 120psi (used to blow out the debris after the holes are drilled)
  • Generator and extension cords to run all four drills
  • One 24" 2"X4" piece of wood (used to know the panels in place)
  • Appropriate signage in accordance to ITE’s State of the Practice on Traffic Calming, as well as ITE’s Manual on Uniformed Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD)

Installation Process

Step 1. Clean the surrounding installation area by using the street broom.

Step 2. Using the Chalk, mark a line parallel to the curb and one that is perpendicular to the road. Use these lines to square up your Traffic Calming Product.

Step 3. Identify and separate the pieces that run parallel to the curb for both sides of the Traffic Calming Product.

Step 4. Assemble and position the first row of outside units. Make sure that all of the tongues are facing out towards the center of the Traffic Calming Product. Use the tongue and groove system to ensure the units interlocked properly as shown below.

Step 5. Drill 9/16" diameter holes into the asphalt, through the existing holes of the first row using the hammer drill. The holes should be 3 1/2" deep in order to accommodate the plastic shields which are 3" long.

Step 6. Use an air compressor ensure that all the holes are clear of dust and debris.

Step 7. Insert plastic anchors into the holes and install them securely into the asphalt surface.

Step 8. Using the high speed drill, insert the bolts and washer into the plastic anchor. Ensure that the bolts are snug but do not over tighten.

Step 9. Once the first row has been bolted to the ground you can begin assembling the next row of panels. Using a 10 lb sledge hammer, knock the row snug to the first row. Continue to assemble and connect the additional rows while at the same time drilling out the holes for the rows that have been completed. Continue installing the rows until half the width of the street is completed. Then, proceed to the other half. This sequence allows traffic to flow through half the street at any given time.

Precautions:

  • From a safety point of view, steel toe boots and safety gloves are required. Make sure that the units are tight and well aligned before moving from one step to another.
  • Make sure the holes are clear of dust and debris before installing the anchors.
  • Rubber traffic calming solutions must be removed in the fall prior to the arrival of snow and installed in the spring after the last snow storm.
  • When removing rubber solutions, existing holes should be filled with e-poxy. Please contact us for any questions or concerns about removal and reinstallation.
  • Quarterly inspections should be made of each traffic calming device; if the Product has been damaged in any way, it must be replaced.
  • In accordance with ITE standards appropriate traffic signs should be installed with each traffic calming device.
