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.

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.

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.

In more recent years, housing developers have installed less-expensive extruded curbs and gutters with a more rounded, but blunt, top on the curb (roll-over or roller curbs), which then serves as the entrance to your driveway. The result of this design can be a bone-jarring shock as you traverse the curbing. This less-than-smooth transition can not only misalign the wheels, it can damage wheels, steering and suspension components if hit at a speed anything higher than a baby crawl. The folks at Bridjit, Inc. have your solution in the form of Bridjit Curb Ramps. Made from recycled tires (12 passenger tires are used in each three-section set), the ramps are not bolted down to the storm gutter, but rather bolted together to form a 135-pound to 180-pound mass, depending upon the number of sections used. The ramp design enables water to flow underneath without the need to install piping, and it can be flipped out of the way for easy cleaning — it’s not impacted by street sweeping either. Each section is four feet long, and numerous sections can be added to cover the full width of virtually any driveway, eliminating jarring ingress and egress, no matter your vehicle. A three-section set costs $299, with additional four-foot center sections costing $90, all of which can be ordered by calling 877-522-6611, or by visiting their Web site, www.bridjitt.com.
