Guide to Speed Ramps Installation

Your Guide to Speed Ramps and Their Installation

Speed ramps are very effective traffic calming devices. They are ideal for use on business purposes, in car parks, at barriers and near pedestrians to ensure that drivers slow down to a safe speed of between 5 and 15 mph.

Our speed ramp kits are ideal for business owners who want to use speed ramps on their premises which are easily installed and can be just as easily moved or removed when needed.

They are made from durable PVC, suitable for heavy duty use and have a chequered pattern for additional grip.

The speed ramps consist of several middle and tapered end sections, alternating in black and yellow, making them highly visible. Reflectors are embedded into the surface, ensuring maximum visibility.

Whilst 50mm speed ramps are ideal for slowing drivers down to 10-15 mph, 75mm speed ramps can be used to slow vehicles down to 5-10 mph.

The sets are available in different width options, ranging from 1 metre to 6 metres, so you are sure to find the right size – larger widths are also available on request.


The speed ramps can be installed on concrete or tarmac using coach screws which are included with the speed ramps. You will require the following additional tools:
