At Bridjit Curb Ramps we are very happy to say that we are now selling out to 46 states across the United States! This proves that a major dillemma is happening across the US – We’ve now estimated that there are 9 million rolled curb driveways across the United States and that number is growing!
A good portion of the North American housing developments built after 1980 utilized a less expensive rolled curb and gutter which in turn provides what was thought to be an acceptable driveway entry, without having to plan ahead for the driveway location. These rolled curbs were built to save the developers money and in concept was not a bad idea, just not a good design that would accommodate today’s lower slung cars and low profile tires.
It is estimated that over 9 million rolled curb driveway entries exist in the U.S. and Canada, and in most all cases can cause expensive vehicle damage and even physical injury to the occupants. In addition, wheels can be bent and steering component damaged, directly impacting wheel alignment, which in turn causes excess tire wear and increased fuel consumption. These rolled curbs seem like a great idea, but to who? Certainly not us.
Bridjit’s curb ramp was invented by John Curry after he purchased a home with a rolled curb driveway. “My neighbors and I experienced the daily annoyance of being jostled each time I entered or exited my driveway,” said Curry, the president and owner of Bridjit Curb Ramps Inc. “Instead of paying for an expensive modification to my driveway entry, ($2500 to $6000), my concept was to develop a low-impact, low cost driveway solution that would provide homeowners with a lower impact entry and exiting experience.”
Made in the USA from recycled tires, Bridjit Curb Ramps are a high-quality “green” solution designed to help homeowners reduce the jolting and jarring that occurs when entering a driveway with a rolled curb entry and to eliminate underside vehicle damage. It is ideal for any type of vehicle, and particularly for enthusiasts with luxury, sports and classic cars, trailers, RV’s, converted vans, motorcycles, golf carts or other vehicles with a low underside clearance or an extended overhang. These affordable ramps are simple to install and come in four foot modular sections that allow segmenting around cul-de-sacs,fit any width driveway, and are bolted together, not to the concrete.
Many North American housing developments constructed after 1980 include curbs, gutters and streets that were installed prior to the actual building of houses. This method was a way for developers to save money by eliminating the need for pre-planning the actual placement of driveways and for more expensive, swale-type driveway entrances. The problem, however, is that this “rollover” curb design is hard on vehicles including everything from cars, trucks and RVs to boats, motorcycles and golf carts. You know that feeling the one where the undercarriage of your car scrapes the top of the driveway when you back out, or the bone jarring shock as you to pull into the driveway? Doesn’t it make you cringe to hear that steely scrape or feel that harsh drop?
This type of impact can be very destructive to drivers and passengers and to the vehicles themselves. It can misalign the wheels, causing extensive tire wear and increased gas usage, and damage the steering components and the wheels.
To stop this kind of destruction, the experts at Bridjit created an innovative product that bridges the gap between the street and your blunt driveway curb entry. Our driveway curb ramps allow drivers to smoothly roll over troublesome curbs. Manufactured in three-piece sections, Bridjit Curb Ramps are made from 90% recycled crumb rubber from recycled tires.
