Speed cushions and speed tables

A speed cushion, also known as a “speed table” or a “speed pillow”, is mainly intended to be installed on public roads to slow down traffic. The speed table shape is a bit raised from the centre to gently make vehicles drive at a low speed in order to increase public road traffic safety.

Vertical public traffic calming equipment such as speed cushions or road tables are often placed around school zones, hospitals, town centres or other public residential areas.Long story short, road cushions significantly reduce the speed in public urban areas and pedestrian zones.

What to know about traffic speed cushions?

Speed cushions or speed tables are slightly wider than the space between cars’ wheels but narrow enough so that the ambulances, buses and fire trucks can operate without any impact on their speed.

On the contrary, regular vehicles have to face this traffic calming device and drive over the centre.

We manufacture road tables varying from widths of 1.6 meters to 1.8 meters with several models:

But we can guarantee you that speed cushions from Sino Concept offer one of the best quality-price ratios.

If speed cushions reduce accidents on public roadways without interfering with fire trucks or public transport vehicles, you might need traffic devices that do interfere with that kind of vehicle. For that, we also manufacture speed bumps and humps.

Indeed, we can adapt to different types of traffic calming techniques.

Undoubtedly, red is the most popular speed table colour in Europe because of its bright colour. For example in the United Kingdom (UK), the red road cushions are a common view on the city streets.

Traffic calming rubber speed cushions for public roads by Sino Concept

To prevent slipping risks, our road cushion table has a coefficient of friction greater than 0.55 (measured using an “SRT pendulum”, Skid Resistance Tester). With their non-slip surface, our speed cushions are an excellent choice to force speed limits on any public driveway or roadway.

With the unique anti-slippery texture of our road cushions, motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians will no longer have to worry when crossing over our road cushion models. Indeed, the significant reduction in speed assured by our Sino Concept cushions enhances pedestrian safety and drivers’ safety.

Why make Sino Concept your speed cushions’ supplier?

Quality speed cushions for improved road safety

The raw materials used in our traffic calming pillows:

  • 90% recycled rubber;
  • 10% natural rubber.

The finished treatment is 100% vulcanised rubber, which provides elasticity and resistance that concrete, asphalt or hard recycled plastic (PVC) speed cushions do not allow.

Besides, thanks to the rubber structure, our cushions make less traffic noise than those above.

We especially treat our road cushions top layer to provide resistance to heavy traffic volume and climatic hazards.

With our special anti-UV treatment, it withstands years of ultraviolet light with ease. Indeed, harsh weather or frequent heavy traffic will not impact the excellence of our speed cushions.

Choose Sino Concept as your direct speed table supplier and have premium rubber speed pillows with attractive prices. Are you looking to save cost costs on your traffic safety equipment? Excellent! For any further information, contact our professional team in the field of road safety equipment.

Easy installation of our road cushion tables

The speed cushions are installed in 20 miles per hour (30 km/h) speed limit areas and must not compromise road users safety.

For example, unlike a speed ramp, a speed cushion leaves a large enough space on the side of the traffic lane for cyclists and motorcyclists to pass.

They can also be placed around a pedestrian crossing or a crosswalk to help people cross streets safely.

Moreover, our road table does not span the entire road and allows smooth traffic flow of public transport and emergency vehicles such as fire trucks or ambulances.

The main idea of the speed table is then to limit the hazards without hindering the high-importance traffic.

Please note that the Berlin cushion should not be confused with our speed ramps or humps. Speed bumps are intended for private roads and areas while speed tables are planned to be used on public roadways.

For any further information about finding suitable traffic calming techniques for you, please contact us.

Sino Concept’s speed cushions buying guide

Are you thinking about how to choose the right traffic calming measure for your traffic control projects? This guide should help you to discover the right speed reduction solution for you.

If our Berlin speed cushion is an essential solution to protect road users by reducing vehicle speeds, you also need to choose the right speed cushions regulatory height, according to the recommended length or width, and in appropriate installation areas.

We here introduce the advantages and disadvantages of hard recycled plastic, concrete or asphalt speed cushions. If you are looking for traffic calming solutions for your private residential area, such as the parking hall, we recommend you to rather have a look at our road bump or hump models.

Advantages of speed cushions

What are the advantages of speed cushions?

  • Emergency vehicles and buses can operate smoothly without the slowing impact of cushion thanks to their narrow width, not like a speed breaker nor a speed hump;
  • Speed tables are easily avoidable by cyclists and motorists compared to asphalt or concrete humps;
  • Calms traffic more efficiently than speed limit signs and less harmful for vehicles than cushions made with other materials;
  • Drainage of water should not be affected, unlike with asphalt speed cushions;
  • Street pillows are the more economical choice for public speed reduction;
  • Our road tables are easy to recognise thanks to the bright colours and reflective white arrow strips, allowing road users to anticipate breaking from far before the speed cushion;
  • Easier to install and uninstall than concrete or asphalt cushions, especially since we provide quality steel screws, plugs and plastic anchors for convenient and secure installation;
  • Cost-effective and wise choice as you are working with a direct supplier with in-house factories in China. We guarantee vulcanised speed cushions with premium quality at attractive prices.

Disadvantages of speed cushions

What are the disadvantages of speed cushions?

  • The most disadvantage is that speed cushions’ installations are limited to public areas;
  • Cars can drive faster over the speed tables compared to road humps or bumps (but those are not allowed in public areas);
  • Some drivers can try to avoid the road pillows by driving to alternative traffic lanes, which can cause danger and hazard;
  • Wider cushions could be even more efficient to slow down vehicles than road pillows that we manufacture strictly according to the standards;
  • Possible traffic noise and vibrations can discomfort the people living close to the road pillows. But the main reason for the noise and vibrations is that road users drive too fast over the speed cushion. We at Sino Concept recognise also that this issue can be caused by a hard rubber, which is why we only use premium rubber. Indeed, it is softer and will not make as much noise, thanks to the unique structure on the bottom of the speed cushion;
  • Additional public road works might be required before the installation to make the foundation surface stable;
  • In some countries, there might be restrictions regarding speed tables. Therefore, we highly recommend you getting familiar with local regulations and authorities or municipalities before any purchasing decisions. You can also contact us for advice, we may help you since we export worldwide.

Why are the road pillows an effective choice to increase road safety?

Here are some information you should know:

  • We designed our traffic calming tables to be as visible as possible so that road users can anticipate the breaking from a distance;
  • According to studies, speed cushions decrease the number of accidents on the road and increase traffic safety overall;
  • When cars are driving slower, they have more time to react to any changing factors on the road;
  • In case of a collision, the speed reduction significantly reduces the impacts thanks to the lower vehicle speeds;
  • Quality is one of our main priorities: We strictly control the quality at each step of the manufacturing process. Indeed, we follow and manage each step at our factory until the safe and secure packaging. By working this way, we ensure that you receive products in flawless condition.
