When installing Speed Bumps standard personal protective equipment should be worn as a minimum. These include 3M dust masks (or similar), Safety goggles, heavy duty gloves and overalls.
Ensure that the areas to have Speed Ramps fitted are clean, dry and free from loose and friable material. Any “dished” or damaged surface areas should be patch repaired to provide a reasonably flat and consistent surface. Dry fit all Speed Bumps to ensure they fit freely and that they sit flat down on the surface.
The following can be used as a guide when installing the Speed Bumps:
Whilst Speed Bumps are extremely resilient to dirt and contaminants, it can, as with most other things, become dirty.
Dirt and debris can easily be removed using a stiff brush and should be carried out on a regular basis. If Speed Bumps has been subjected to spillages or the dirt has become embedded, detergents such as Grezoff or similar can be used. It is always advisable to test any cleaning product on Speed Bumps before starting the cleaning procedure. This can be done in an inconspicuous area of the installation or, if preferred, a sample can be sent, free of charge for testing purposes.
Using the detergent, warm water and a suitable brush, scrub the areas until clean. The excess water can be removed using a wet/dry vacuum cleaner or suitable absolvable materials. Where circumstances allow, Speed Bumps can be power washed without causing harm. Care should be taken when the Speed Bumps have been stuck down and/or edge sealed as very high-pressure power washing or repeated power washing could cause damage to sealants and adhesives.
