Whilst not a legal requirement we would recommend that you also add signage to any road where sleeping policeman are used and also advise road users of the recommended speed limit.


Our sleeping policeman is an instant and complete solution for both cable and speed management. Supplied as a 6ft unit, this product can simply be laid on the ground for temporary measures or, for permanent installation, bolted to the ground using our concrete or tarmac fixings.

There are two cable channels on the underside of this product to protect external cables which is why it one of the most popular choices for construction and industrial sites, festivals and concerts, car parks and warehouses. It is also favoured by hire companies as at the end of a contract, the unit can simply be picked up and moved to the next venue.

What is the Purpose of Sleeping Policemen?

At concert venues, construction sites, industrial sites, warehouses, car parks and other locations, there are cables frequently running to and fro - some of which may have to run cross roads or paths meant for vehicles. It is recommended that these cables be provided with some sort of protection while at the same time something that prevents vehicles from running over them at high speeds. This product is a one-stop solution for both these needs, as the sleeping policeman accomplishes the speed control aspect while the cable channels protect underlying cables that may be susceptible to damage.

Where Can a Sleeping Policeman Be Used?

This product is typically used in places where cables run across roads or paths frequently used by vehicles. Temporary set-ups such as open-air concerts, industrial areas and construction sites, or even permanent locations such as car parks and warehouses make perfect settings for this product. The 6-foot piece can be laid across the road over the running cables as is, or can be permanently fixed to concrete or tarmac surfaces. These sleeping policeman are ideal for any location where cable damage from vehicular movement is imminent.

Who Might Use This Product?

Construction crews find this an effective way to slow down vehicles at the site, as well as protect cables running across roads. Concert and cultural festival organisers will also find them extremely handy to protect expensive cables and force vehicles to slow down for safety reasons. After they are used, they can just be picked up and transported for use elsewhere. For permanent use, those charged with the responsibility of speed control in parking areas or warehouses will find these immensely useful as they can be fixed to concrete and tarmac permanently.
