Asphalt Speed Bump Design
For areas that you are trying to keep a 10-15 mph speed, like a parking lot, asphalt speed bumps can be most effective in enforcing this. These are permanent fixtures in the parking lot that can’t be easily damaged and definitely won’t be removed like some of the temporary plastic options that are available. While speed bumps can be used in many setting, they are most often used in parking lots, private driveways as well as homeowner’s associations. Not only will the experts at Andersen Asphalt & Striping install your speed bumps, we will also help you with placement as well. We have the experience needed to know exactly where these bumps should be to give you the most beneficial results.
Difference Between Speed Bumps & Humps
Speed humps and bumps can be used to help eliminate the risk that comes with aggressive drivers. While many people may think that speed humps and bumps are the same thing, they certainly are not. Speed humps are used in areas that you are wanting traffic to stay between 10-15 miles per hour. These are best used where cars need to slow to keep pedestrians safe. Speed bumps are going to be a more aggressive approach in keeping speeds down. Where humps slow traffic to 10-15 miles per hour, speed bumps are capable of slowing traffic to under 10 miles per hour. Speed bumps are 2-4 inches taller than speed humps, making vehicles more aware of the bump as they drive over it.
When it comes to wheel stops for your parking lot, there are two options that Andersen Asphalt & Striping recommend: concrete or rubber. Some people offer plastic or railroad tie stops, but the concrete and rubber we offer is far superior. Concrete wheel stops are the most durable and won’t move like other options. We use steel rebar pins that are actually screwed into the asphalt surface to ensure they won’t budge.
