There is a wide range of options available including height and length measurements, and at The Ramp People we try our best to stock the widest range possible for the most choice.

Original speed bump kits

Our original range of speed bumps is the most widely used and features three different heights ranging including a heavy duty speed bump option. These classic speed bumps are also known as sleeping policeman and are easy to install yourself on either concrete or tarmac surfaces. Take a look at the main features of these quality speed humps.

Speed bump capacities and speed limits

Our speed hump kits come in three different heights to suit various capacities and speed limits. You’ll find our 60mm high speed bumps are our heavy duty kits and can slow down vehicles up to 60,000kg capacity to 10mph, perfect for areas that may have more heavy-load traffic such as HGV’s.

Alternatively, our 50mm and 75mm speed humps can handle capacities up to 20,000kg for areas that mostly deal with regular car and smaller vehicle traffic. Our 50mm speed bumps can slow traffic to 10mph while our 75mm kits can slow traffic to 50mph. Take a look at the handy table below to help you decide which speed bump option meets your capacity and speed limit requirements.

Speed hump kit length options

Additionally, all our ktis are available in a range of different lengths. You can buy complete kits at different lengths that come with two end caps, plus you can buy middle sections on their own to extend any of our kits even further. This is perfect if your speed bump needs change or if you need a longer length than our pre-prepared kits come in.

Not all of our speed hump heights have kits in every length. Our heavy duty 60mm speed bumps, for example, only has pre-made kits available in certain lengths as each mid section is 1m long because it is lined with steel. However, you can add to them to create your own custom length by purchasing additional middle sections. Take a look at the handy table below to see exactly how many middle sections and end caps you get in each kit length.

Speed cushions

Unlike our traditional black and yellow sleeping policemen, our speed cushions come in a choice of either black or red. Luckily, they’re much easier to choose from as they come in one complete kit at a single size. Speed cushions are great at slowing traffic down just like other speed ramps, but they’re also easy for emergency vehicles to drive over so they’re perfect for routes that might experience more emergency traffic than usual. Take a look at the other great features they have to offer.
