Still Making Speed Humps Out of Asphalt?
Thousands of cities use rubber speed humps and cushions to slow traffic down. But many cities still make them out of asphalt. In order to create asphalt devices, you need to close the street and carefully pour the device to meet your desired specs. In case of any changes to the roads, the speed humps will need to be destroyed and created again from scratch. And with frequent use or extreme weather, asphalt speed humps often begin to crumble and crack. Asphalt is also not an environmentally friendly substance.
What About Rubber?
Rubber speed humps are made of prefabricated units so that you know the exact form and shape that your device will take. In addition to easing the installation process, this also enhances driver acceptance. There are no road closures necessary, and they can be fully installed in just hours. If you need to resurface your roads, Traffic Logix rubber speed humps can be simply removed and reinstalled. Built to withstand long-term use and extreme weather, our recycled rubber devices are a long-lasting solution that continue to slow traffic and look good even after years of use. And best of all, they are a green choice, made from recycled rubber tires rescued from landfills.
