More Curb Ramp FAQs from Bridjit

Q – What joining method is used to keep the BRIDJIT sections together?

A – BRIDJIT curb ramps come supplied with ½ inch x 7 ½ inch galvanized bolts, pre-inserted into the center sections. These bolts need to be driven into the adjoining section as shown in our instruction manual. Friction between the rubber and bolts keeps the sections tight together; the supplied nuts are an additional fail safe.

Q – How much does each BRIDJIT curb ramp section weigh?

A- Each curb ramp section, or bridge, weighs approximately 45 pounds, or 135 pounds per set of three and 180 pounds per set of four when bolted together.

Q – What keeps BRIDJIT curb ramps in place during use?

A – The curb ramps’ weight provides the stability required to keep the device in place, with little

or no adjustment required during use. Mechanical fixing to the curb should not be required. The sections bolt to each other for support, but not to the ground.

Five Easy Ways to Conserve Gas

Though the fuel crisis and skyrocketing gas prices seem to have passed, they will be back with a vengeance when our economy returns. Regardless, it is still important to reduce our gas consumption to protect our environment and conserve resources for future generations. Here are 5 easy ways for you to conserve gas while saving money.

1. Travel less. This gas-saving method can be implemented in a variety of ways including planning ahead for your needs, consolidating your trips to the store with other errands, as well as walking and bicycling more, carpooling, utilizing public transportation, and working from home occasionally instead of commuting every day.

2. Properly maintain your car. Regular maintenance of your vehicle is one of the most important things you can do to maximize your vehicle’s performance and increase its longevity. This includes regularly checking tire pressure, changing your oil, replacing air filters and getting tune-ups as recommended in your vehicle’s owner’s manual.

3. Minimize damage to your vehicle. One way to prevent unnecessary damage to your vehicle is to install a set of curb ramps at the end of your roll-over curb driveway entries. Well-made curb ramps minimize damage to your car’s undercarriage, tires, alignment and steering, improving your gas mileage.

4. Drive a fuel efficient car. If you have two vehicles at home, drive the more fuel efficient vehicle whenever possible. And, when you’re in the market for a new car, consider trading in your gas-guzzling SUV or truck for a car that gets better gas mileage, like one of the many hybrids now on the market. Models to consider include the Toyota Prius, Nissan Versa, Ford Fusion Hybrid and the Chrysler Sebring E85.

5. Refill your gas tank slowly. Since modern gas pumps are safety-equipped with vapor returns, that vapor is sucked back out of your car and returned to the underground storage tank where it condenses back into gas. In effect, by pumping faster, you are paying for gas you don’t keep. Instead, pump your gas slowly on the lowest setting to minimize vapor creation and keep most of what you pay for.

By following these five simple tips, you can conserve gas without any significant changes to your driving habits or lifestyle. At the same time, you’ll reduce wear and tear on your vehicle and save time and money. What a bargain!

Happy Holidays!

Water flow with Bridjit Curb Ramps

We are often asked how water flows in the curb gutters once the Bridjit Curb Ramps are installed. Here are two FAQs from our website which explain how they work together.

Q – How does BRIDJIT allow for flow of water?
A – BRIDJIT has a full length 2 ½ inch waterway built into the underneath of the product, as well as angled ends which promote excessive water to flow out and around the device, cleaning out debris.

Q – How does Bridjit work if I have a storm sewer inlet/grate located within my driveway?
A – Depending on the exact right-to-left location of the grate and depth of your driveway, Bridjit can still be utilized. You should never place the Bridjit ramp over the top of the grate. Please contact us at info@bridjit.com for possible solutions and provide a picture of your driveway if possible.

Are Bridjit Curb Ramps easy to install?

Yes, curb ramps can be easily installed in a matter of minutes with little more than a hammer and screwdriver. The sections bolt together, rather than to the concrete, so simply align them in your curb’s gutter, bolt together and test drive! Three sections bolted together weigh 130 pounds and four sections total 175 pounds, so they are sturdy and will stay in place. They’re also heavy enough to deter thieves from walking off with them. After installation, the curb ramps can remain in place or be flipped out of the way for cleaning.

Did you know your home’s rollover curb may be damaging your vehicle?

Do you have a driveway with a deep “rollover” curb that is hard to get over when pulling in or out of your driveway? Have you ever wondered what long-term effects these jarring scenarios have on your vehicles? In addition to being annoying, the damage to your car, truck or RV can be significant, affecting the frame of your car, its wheels, steering components, alignment , tire wear and, ultimately, decreasing gas mileage. Before we can correct the problem, however, we need to understand it.

These troublesome curbs started occurring in subdivisions built in North America after 1980 when developers installed extruded curbs and gutters and paved streets before the construction of the actual homes that would utilize them. This method saved developers money by eliminating the need for more expensive swale-type driveways and detailed planning, but it created curbs and gutters that were rounded but with a blunt top leading to the driveway.
Unfortunately, this design can cause significant damage to the underside of the vehicles that drive over them including cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs, motorcycles, trailered boats, golf carts and more. The jarring effect on the vehicle can also impact the driver and passengers. Despite the damage, developers continue to use this type of rollover curb design in new neighborhoods nationwide.

To save the wear and tear to your vehicles and reduce the “jar to your car,” there are several potential solutions to consider:

1) Demolish your driveway entry and curb, and reconstruct a smoother entry. Pros: permanent correction of the rollover curb. Cons: expense, potential difficulty getting approval from your local municipality and homeowner’s association for a design change.

2) Fill in the rollover curb with cement, asphalt or steel so that the steepness of the rollover curb is lessened. Pros: relatively easy to implement. Cons: Against code, permanent, noisy, can be a trip hazard, and very heavy to move for maintenance.

3) Purchase curb ramps specifically designed to fit into the curb and gutter to create a smooth transition from your driveway to the street. Pros: convenient, inexpensive, made of recycled materials, made in the USA, water and debris flow freely underneath, sturdy but movable. Cons: Once you buy curb ramps, everyone in your neighborhood will want them.

Of course, the choice is yours as to how to best correct the problem. Whatever solution you choose, we encourage you to consider it wisely and to correct the problem soon. The long-term effects on your vehicles can be costly.
