They may cause a jolting to the car if the driver doesnt approach a speed bump at a decreased speed. Speed bumps come in multiple different colors and materials. Some have a solid coloring throughout the speed bump and are maintenance-free. They can be made from 100% recycled plastic. You can pick and choose your sizes to use in a parking area, and can basically create your own custom length speed bumps. Plastic speed bumps can be installed quickly and easily, but can be removed if necessary, for road care or other purposes.Speed bumps can help slow traffic considerably, which can make the situation safer for other vehicles, and for pedestrians in the area.

Car Stop And Speed Bumps

Car stops stop cars. They physically keep a vehicle from moving forward, so it can help protect other cars from damage. They can also protect homes and establishments from damage from a car. The car stops are designed in different lengths and for different sized vehicles. There are multiple color options and multiple material options. Some of the car stops and made from plastic and some are made from concrete. The concrete ones are heavier than the 100 percent recycled plastic ones, and are subject to more potential deterioration. The lighter weight of the plastic car stops can be an advantage both in installation and in shipping. Shipping costs can be lower, as well as more shipping options being available due to the lower weight of the plastic car stops, and installation is easier with the lighter car stops, too.

Industrial & Commercial Outdoor Furniture For Parks & Playgrounds

Retail establishments often have commercial outdoor furniture outside their doors on a sidewalk or patio area. This commercial-use furniture is hardier than residential-use furniture as it needs to hold up to more wear and tear, and more use and even misuse. Shopping carts may run into them, and people may spill on them or climb on them more often than would happen with residential use. Your commercial outdoor furniture may or may not be secured to the ground outside your establishment. Common materials for outdoor furniture are wood, metal, and precast concrete. Metal tables can have powder coating, and be comfort-coated with a vinyl coating . Different materials need different maintenance. Non-wood options help deter termite infestations. Seats can be chair style or bench style. Bench style seating can have backs or no backs. Tables can be all-in-one or a separate piece of furniture from the seating. Certain outdoor tables are wheelchair accessible, as they have an extension of the table top beyond the bench seating for the table. Sometimes recycled materials are utilized in outdoor furniture. This can help in furniture maintenance, as well as deterring vandals, due to the ease of cleaning and repair. They can even be recycled again, eventually.

Commercial Ladders, Rolling, Fixed, Metal, Step & Roof Ladder

Commercial ladders come in different heights and styles, to suit different purposes. They can be used in warehouses and stores, and can help make the most of the space available for storage of your stock. There are extension ladders and step ladders, and fixed and rolling ladders. Extension ladders can be used when there is not a lot of demand for a ladder, but perhaps not a lot of floor space to leave one out, either. Step ladders can be helpful if you just need to be able to reach a step or two above floor level. Fixed ladders can be fastened down and used like a staircase, in places like factories and warehouses. Rolling ladders can be moved easily to the place where they are needed, so one person may be able to move them alone. There are special safety features designed into some commercial ladders. Their incline may be more gradual than some other ladders, in order to facilitate facing forward while walking down. There can be special treat treatment in order to help protect against falls.

Commercial & Residential Bike Parking Racks

There are commercial and residential uses for bike parking racks. These come in different sizes and styles and are made with different materials. Some of them are made with recycled materials. In addition to the styles you can choose from, you could also design your own parking rack, if you wanted or needed to do so. Bike racks may make it more likely for some customers to come to an establishment. If customers feel their bikes are secure while shopping, they may be inclined to shop longer. They could play a part in diminishing auto emissions and encouraging exercise and fighting obesity. There are even locker style and double-level bike parking options. The locker style options can help protect the bikes from the elements. Double-level options use the least space to fit in the most bikes. You can use bike parking racks in your garage, as well. Some styles fold up for storage when not in use, so they can be kept out of the way. These bike parking racks can help organize your garage, and keep the bikes from being a mess. There's likely to be a shape and style of bike rack that suits your needs, and if there isn't, you can design your own.
