What is involved with speed bump or speed hump construction?
Placement is one aspect. Regardless of where it will be built it needs to be placed where cars cannot go around in order to be the most effective. An experienced NJ paving company understands these situations.
Another aspect of constructing speed humps is how they are installed. It is rare for a speed bump to be built on raw ground. Of course if they are they would be constructed as any road or driveway would be with attention to the ground preparation and the sub base layer. When they are built on an existing road it is necessary to adhere the bump to the asphalt beneath it. This means that the surface needs to be thoroughly cleaned and prepared prior to adding the adhesive. The asphalt needs to be roughed up, or keyed, prior to an adhesive placement. The adhesive used is typically tack oil. Bumps, humps, or tables need to cure for a while, typically 30 days, and prior to being sealed and marked. And then markings before bumps or on the bumps are essential for visibility.
