Speed humps - asphalt or rubber?

Deciding to install speed humps to slow down vehicle traffic will certainly make things safer for pedestrians. However, whether to use rubber or asphalt in the speed hump construction is an important consideration. Rubber speed humps will need a concrete slab to bolt to because if you bolt straight to asphalt they will soon work themselves loose and come off leaving you with an expensive repair. Adding a concrete slab to fix the speed bumps to is expensive also. Rubber is also much more susceptible to wear. Asphalt speed humps are quick easy to install and give lasting results. Due to their structure they are a lot more cost effective and will cost less in the long term.

Avoid the legal blues

We‘ve all heard the stories of law suits that arise from pedestrians tripping over in public areas or vehicles damaged by breaks in surfaces. Don’t be found liable for damage where injuries that occur as a result of pavement hazards. In any area that is subject to public traffic, whether its pedestrian foot traffic or vehicle traffic, ensure your asphalt surfaces are free from potential trip hazards by checking for early signs wear and damage.

Get it fixed early and spend less time defending legal action!

Asphalt in parks and gardens

When properly prepared, asphalt surfaces should not only look good but will also retard root growth from trees in neighbouring garden beds and tree plantings. This not only helps keep the area safe from potential trip hazards but also helps the trees, allowing them to grow more naturally and possibly avoiding expensive tree removal down the track.

Unlike concrete, asphalt is more forgiving and easier to repair and can be contoured to work with the trees rather than against them.

Consider using asphalt rather than concrete or paving in areas that are sensitive to tree growth.
