Kerb Ramps, Speed Ramps & Trench Covers

Here at First Mats, we can help you find the right kerb ramp, speed bump or trench cover for your needs, ticking the boxes for safety, reliability and value for money.

We have a large selection of kerb ramps, speed bumps and trench covers to choose from. The First Mats range includes kerb ramps suitable for trolleys and wheelchairs, speed bumps made from recycled materials and speed bumps that can incorporate hoses and cables. We even have circular speed bumps, ideal for mixed pedestrian/traffic sites such as schools.

We also supply trench covers, designed to safely allow lighter vehicle and pedestrian transit across maintenance, repair and installation trenches and holes.

What is the difference between a kerb ramp, a speed bump and a trench cover?

Simply put, a kerb ramp allows you to move loads from one level (the pavement) to another level (the road) and vice versa. Some kerb ramps are designed for heavy vehicles and others are for lighter use, such as wheelchairs and sack trucks.

A speed bump is a raised band across the road, designed to make the driver slow right down to navigate one without any damage to their vehicle. At First Mats, we have speed bumps to slow drivers down to 5mph, 10mph and 15mph.

Conversely, a trench cover is designed to allow the smooth passage of vehicles and pedestrians, ensuring that repair work or cable/pipe installation activity has a minimal impact on traffic flow.

What are kerb ramps used for?

Kerb ramps are used to move people in wheelchairs and goods on trolleys, safely and easily. The First Mats Heavy-Duty Trolley and Wheelchair Kerb Ramps come in two versions: one can withstand weights of up to 350kg, and another one that can handle weights up to 750kg, making it suitable for use with motorised wheelchairs.

Where can the speed bumps be used?

Speed bumps can be used at hazardous spots wherever traffic needs to slow down right down, for example, at entrances and exits and parking lots. The First Mats 10mph and 15mph Modular Speed Bumps are suitable for use on public roads. Our 5mph version isn’t, simply because it wouldn’t be safe to slow traffic to this speed on a public highway.

Our Outdoor Rubber Hose and Cable Protector allows traffic to safely travel over hoses and cables, while also calming traffic. And First Mats’ Circular Speed Reduction Bumps, sometimes known as speed cushions, are ideal for schools and other mixed traffic areas where pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles share the same space. They also allow emergency vehicles to pass through safely.

Where are trench covers used?

Trench covers are used wherever sub-surface work is being carried out. If a hole or trench has been dug to allow access to pipes or cables, then that hole needs to be covered to prevent accidents and to allow people and vehicles to pass safely.
