8 Quick and Simple Steps to Install a Speed Hump in less than 30 Minutes!

Step 1

  • Arrive on site, check your surroundings and unload and unpack the Speed Humps.
  • Locate all installation fixing bolts and washers supplied with the product.
  • Dispose of rubbish and ensure site is clean and free of obstacles.

Step 2

  • Place Speed Humps in location to be installed and using tape measure correctly position the Speed Humps.

 

 

Step 3

  • Using the guide holes in the Speed Hump, drill through the hump using a 12 mm diameter concrete drill bit.
  • Run drill up and down the completed hole to ensure the hole is clean and of the correct depth.

Step 4

  • Blow all residue dust from holes using air compressor and dust blower attachment.
CRITICAL STEP: If installation is in concrete, ALL dust must be removed from hole and ensure hole is CORRECT depth for supplied fixings. If holes are not cleared of residue, dust fixings will not be able to be completely installed and may bend.
Step 5
  • Drive supplied fixings, with washers, into clean holes using a mini sledgehammer. Be sure to drive in fixings straight.
  • Hammer fixings to a point where the washer sits firm, but not tight, onto the heavy duty rubber seat in the counter sunk Speed Hump fixing hole.
NOTE: Do not drive fixings too tight that it causes tearing of the rubber seat.
CRITICAL STEP:
– Concrete Installation: a small amount of liquid adhesive can be applied to the fixing thread before inserting into hole. DO NOT apply liquid adhesive to the concrete hole.
– Bitumen Installation: apply liberal amount of liquid adhesive to the hole before inserting fixing.
Step 6
  • Use punch to firm fixings and washer onto heavy duty counter sunk rubber seat.
Step 7
  • Clean dust from the Speed Hump and surrounding installation site.
Step 8
  • Final clean and presentation of the Speed Hump using a simple tyre shine and a rag.
