Speed Bump Fitting Guide & Installation

When installing our speed bumps, it is important to fit them correctly.  This simple guide aims to outline the speed bump fitting process (or installation) to install our speed bumps correctly.

This guide assumes that you are installing a speed bump using one of our Speed Bump Kits.

Things you will require:

78mph GB2 Heavy Duty Road Barrier. This barrier was tested with two GB2 barriers interlocked in a straight line. They were placed perpendicular to the oncoming wind and did not move until wind speeds in excess of 78mph were reached. They were tested filled with water to the fill line.
