Everything You Need To Know About Kerb Ramps

What You Need To Know About Kerb Ramps

By installing kerbs ramps around the site, both pedestrians and workers will have easy access. Kerb ramps are a non-slip, safe way to get from a higher kerb down to a lower road or path. They come in two types: those for vehicles and those for people.

They look like a half-speed hump, and are usually installed in the gutter’s right angle. These ramps are extremely strong and can support up to 15t, making them perfect for vehicles entering and leaving your site.

A pedestrian kerb is a flat, simple ramp that allows pedestrians to safely pass through roadworks and construction projects. These ramps are also called wheelchair ramps or safety ramps. They have a nonslip texture for added safety in slippery or wet conditions.

These plastic ramps, which are lightweight and portable in nature, are perfect for when a footpath is closed due to street work. A ramp allows wheelchair, trolley, stroller and bike users to safely move from the footpath to the road without falling into a gutter.

Contractors who are responsible ensure that road users with wheelchairs, prams, trolleys or strollers can easily navigate kerbs and drains during construction.

Keeping an eye on pedestrians and residents in the construction area is a vital part of any project. It will also help to improve your public image.

There are also practical considerations: kerb-ramps can be extremely useful for loading and unloading construction supplies and equipment. Portable ramps make it easier to unload and take delivery of smaller items.

A ramp may not be suitable for some sites, particularly if the gap between surfaces is large.

Keep The Road Open For All.

Ramps can also help keep neighbouring businesses happy, and ensure that the business is able to trade without interruptions during renovations or refit projects.

The property manager will have a lot of headaches if, for example, you are renovating the carpark in a shopping center and the customers can’t easily move their trolleys.

When planning your project, make sure to include all users and avoid limiting access by altering or blocking off paths. You’ll be prepared for any situation by having a set or pedestrian ramps on your site.

Different Types Of Kerb Ramps

Portable Pedestrian Kerb Ramps

Heavy duty kerbs ramps made of highly visible yellow plastic are essential to have at the site when footpaths are being closed. Yellow plastic kerb ramp, which is designed to be durable and used in civil and construction industry, is an essential product during work on footpaths, nature strip, kerbs or carparks.

The portable access Ramps have a rolled edge and are 85mm tall. They can be easily adapted to different kerb levels. The pedestrian ramp has recessed mounting points that allow it to be secured for safety. This leaves the non-slip surface untouched by bolts, which could cause a trip hazard.

The outer edge of this 1.3-metre-wide ramp is rounded to prevent wheels from rolling off unintentionally. There is still plenty of space for movement. The ramp has a profile that allows it to be stacked, which makes it easier for multiple ramps for storage and transport.

The Vehicle Kerb Ramp

Reflective Vehicle Ramps made of tough recycled rubber are designed to provide safe access for vehicles, wheeled devices such as wheelbarrows, and trolleys.

They are ideal for medium- to long-term civil and construction projects, where vehicles and other vehicles must be able to access the site easily. Because they’re sold in modular sections, you can easily create the length that you want by combining two end caps with any number of center sections.

Kerb ramps are a great way to move equipment such as wheelbarrows, plasterboard trolleys or delivery trolleys. They can also be used for other equipment with wheels, like site storage boxes. By allowing equipment and supplies to move easily in and out, a kerb-ramp can reduce the risk of tripping during road work and other projects.

We reflective ramps are available in two different heights: 100mm and 150mm. They can be used with a variety of kerbs. The sloped ramp design at both the front and ends allows vehicles to engage it from any angle. They are typically installed by placing them into the right-angle created by the curb. However, they can be installed offset to create a drain channel.

How To Install Vehicle Kerbs

Rubber vehicle kerbs come in modular sections that can be mounted using either asphalt pins or bolts. They are suitable for concrete and asphalt pavements. They can support a maximum of 15 tons when installed correctly, making them suitable for many different construction projects.
