Whilst not a legal requirement we would recommend that you also add signage to any road where speed ramps are used and also advise road users of the recommended speed limit.
The 5mph speed ramp from The Workplace Depot should form an integral part of any small scale traffic and speed management scheme. It is designed to slow vehicles right down to a maximum of 5mph which is ideal for spaces where children, people or animals are wandering around freely, to reduce the risk of collisions and to calm traffic in built up areas.
The speed ramp can be made as wide or as short as required by building up alternate yellow and black sections to the desired length. The middle sections have a single aperture which allows cables to be run underneath allowing the unit to double as both a speed ramp and a cable protector. The tapered ends, however, are not optimised for cables and therefore should only be fitted if you do not wish to run cables through the ramp.
The 7cm high ramp provides a severe incline for reducing and managing the speed of vehicles on-site, on the roads and in car parks. It should be noted that this product is not suitable for cars with low profiles such as sports cars and vehicles that have been modified. If your venue is frequented by vehicles such as these then we highly recommend opting for the 10mph Road Bump which is equally as effective at slowing traffic but with a less harsh incline.

Interesting Facts About Speed Ramps
Speed ramps are becoming the preferred option for 'speed calming' today. Concrete and asphalt ramps are usually permanent and cannot be removed for any reason - including in winter when snowploughs are in operation. It is also a challenge to construct concrete and asphalt ramps to exact specifications, which is not a problem for rubber ramps that are pre-moulded and ready to deploy at a moment's notice. Rubber products are also more cost-effective than asphalt or concrete. It can be assumed that the speed ramp is here to stay!
