Rediweld Traffic Products are a market leader in the supply and sale of Traffic Products to public and private clients with Traffic Calming and Site Safety Products.
Jeanette Holder, General Manager at Rediweld Traffic Products commented: “As a leading UK manufacturer with 30 years of experience and knowledge we have been able to offer an extensive range of Traffic Calming, Cycle Separation and Site Safety Products, which has been the result of extensive research and development. With the encouragement of cycling and walking, low traffic neighbourhoods and various Active Travel schemes our Innovative rubber products have been able to offer various solutions, such as seating areas, road closures, children’s play areas and the light segregation products for cycle lanes which have already proved to be successful on many locations throughout the UK.
“The Traffic Calming and Site safety products are able to suit most locations due to the various widths and lengths available and all within manual handling so no lifting gear to make installation quick and easy. The appearance and aesthetics of our products are important to our customers, this is enhanced by the way we manufacture our products by moulds that give a soft, organic surface finish and with our granite options these are most suited to sensitive or heritage locations.”
