Things to Consider

  • Compliance with regulations: Ensure that the kerb ramps, speed ramps, and trench covers you are considering purchasing comply with the relevant British standards and regulations. This is essential to avoid any legal issues and ensure the safety of pedestrians and vehicles.
  • Durability and longevity: Look for products made from high-quality materials with a proven track record of durability. Consider factors such as resistance to wear, weather conditions, and heavy loads to ensure that the ramps and covers will last long without requiring frequent replacements or repairs.
  • Load capacity: Evaluate the load capacity of the ramps and covers to ensure they can handle the expected weight of vehicles or equipment passing over them. It is important to choose products designed to support your specific application's maximum load requirements.
  • Slip resistance: Check that the ramps and covers have appropriate slip resistance properties to prevent accidents, particularly in wet or slippery conditions. Look for textured surfaces or anti-slip coatings to provide sufficient grip for pedestrians and vehicles.
  • Easy installation and removal: Consider the ease of installation and removal of the ramps and covers. Look for products with clear instructions or minimal effort to set up and remove. This will save time and effort during installation and any necessary maintenance or relocation.
  • Compatibility with surroundings: Evaluate how well the ramps and covers blend with their surroundings. Consider factors such as colour options, design aesthetics, and the overall visual impact they may have on the environment. Choosing products that seamlessly integrate with the surrounding infrastructure can enhance the area's overall appearance.
  • Maintenance requirements: Assess the maintenance requirements of the ramps and covers. Look for products that are easy to clean, require minimal upkeep, and resist corrosion or damage. This will help reduce ongoing maintenance costs and ensure the longevity of the ramps and covers.
  • Accessibility and usability: Consider the accessibility and usability of the ramps and covers, particularly for individuals with disabilities or mobility challenges. Look for gradual slopes, smooth transitions, and appropriate dimensions to ensure easy access and safe passage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where Should a Kerb Ramp be used?

A kerb ramp should be used in areas where there is a change in elevation between a footpath and a road. It is designed to provide a smooth transition for pedestrians, cyclists, and wheelchair users to navigate the kerb or curb safely. Kerb ramps are typically installed at pedestrian crossings, driveways, and other areas where there is a need to cross over a kerb.

What are Trench Covers?

Trench covers, also known as trench plates or road plates, are heavy-duty metal plates used to cover excavations or trenches in roads, sidewalks, or construction sites. They are designed to provide a temporary and safe surface for vehicles, pedestrians, or equipment to pass over the open trench. Trench covers are typically made of steel or aluminium and come in various sizes and thicknesses to accommodate different trench widths and load capacities. They are often used in construction, utility maintenance, or repair projects to ensure workers' safety and smooth traffic flow.
