Different names and uses of speed cushions?

Speed cushions are raised surfaces installed across the width of a roadway, usually in the center of a traffic lane. These traffic safety and traffic calming tools are mainly designed to control traffic flow and prevent over-speeding.

Their width is more than the width of a car; hence drivers have to reduce their speed in order to drive over them comfortably. The longitudinal channels between speed cushions allow emergency vehicles like ambulances or fire tracks and other long-axle vehicles to drive over them without speed reduction.

Speed cushions are known by many different names, including:

  • Speed lumps
  • Speed tables
  • Road cushions

No matter what name you use, all speed cushions serve the same purpose: to slow down traffic.

9 facts about why our road speed cushions are important in traffic control

Our speed cushions can improve your road safety in multiple ways. The following facts show what makes them essential for roads:

  1. Slow-down speeding vehicles: Our speed cushions force speeding vehicles to reduce their acceleration from 15 to 20 miles per hour (mph). It helps increase vehicular and pedestrian safety in the area.
  2. Reduce the number of accidents: A speed table prevents vehicles from over-speeding, helping decrease the rate of accidents and fatalities.
  3. Motorists and cyclists can avoid them: A motorist, cyclist, or bicyclist can pass through the channel between speed cushions to avoid speed reduction.
  4. Allow emergency vehicles to pass without speed reduction: An ambulance or fire truck can easily drive over our speed cushions because we keep their width smaller than the width of emergency vehicles. It helps these vehicles maintain their emergency-response time.
  5. Regulate the traffic route: Drivers tend to avoid roads that have traffic calming measures like speed cushions, speed humps, etc. Install our speed tables on busy roads to make drivers change their routes and make roads less busy.
  6. Less traffic noise: Our speed cushions are made of rubber which is a flexible and soft material compared to recycled plastic, concrete, and asphalt. They comparatively produce less noise when vehicles drive over them.
  7. Less discomfort to drivers: The raised section of a speed cushion is extended. So when a driver passes over it, he experiences less discomfort than when he drives over other speed control tools like a speed breaker, speed hump, or speed bump.
  8. Don’t affect rainwater drainage: The longitudinal channel between speed cushions lets rainwater move on roadways. This way, water does not accumulate and drains easily.
  9. Can be installed in various places: You can install them on an unmarked crosswalk, slow zone, pedestrian zone, roundabout, cut-through, school zone, parabolic parking space, or any other similar area to improve your traffic control plan or transportation system.

How to install our traffic cushions?

Installing our speed cushions is simple, easy, and quick. We send free installation kits (consisting of lag bolts and anchors) with our products, so you just need standard installation tools like a drilling machine or hammer to install them.

Follow this step-by-step guide to install our speed cushions like professionals.

  • Step 1: Mark the area with chalk where you want to install the speed table. Make sure the marking is parallel to the road’s edges and the area is clean.
  • Step 2: Assemble and position all pieces of our speed cushion the right way.
  • Step 3: Get a drilling machine and start drilling holes. The depth of holes should be according to the length of anchors and bolts.
  • Step 4: Clear holes with an air compressor to remove dust.
  • Step 5: Insert adhesive and then anchors it into each hole with the help of a hand-held sledgehammer. Now, insert the bolt-washer assembly and secure it to its place with a drill.

Our speed cushions can be installed within a few minutes. You can install them yourself if you know how to use standard tools like a drilling machine or hammer.

We recommend you install warning signs, regulatory signs, or speed signs before them to warn drivers and pedestrians of their presence beforehand.

How do our speed lumps work?

The main goal of all the traffic safety tools like wheel stops, traffic control signs, pavement markings, road bumps, and stop signs is the same: to make roads safe for both pedestrians and drivers.

Each tool performs its role differently. Some are more effective than others. Compared to other tools, our speed lumps are more efficient in many ways.

They have a wider raised surface that lets vehicles drive over them smoothly after reducing their speed up to 20 mph. This helps reduce the number of crashes or collisions between vehicles in high-traffic volume areas.

Fire trucks, buses, and other long-axle vehicles can drive through the spacing left between speed cushions without reducing their speed. This way, they can reach their destination on time.

Transportation engineers and highway safety departments use them to enhance road safety for drivers, vehicles, and pedestrians.
