Rediweld is a leading UK manufacturer of an extensive range of Road Safety Products, which we have been expanding to include a series of Cycle Lane Separators, this has been made possible through in depth research and development.
It is well documented that if you improve safety for cyclists then more people will cycle. If more people cycle it reduces the number of vehicle journeys, which in turn reduces air (NO2, CO & PM) and noise pollution.
Active Travel is an essential part of creating sustainable cities to live in. The Orca range has features that reduce accidents and lead to more people using cycles in the UK and countries around the world.
This comes from a sustainable product which accounts for part of the 40 tonnes of recycled material that we process every month, using a unique low energy manufacturing process. At the end of its life the rubber modules can themselves be recycled and used in many different ways.
This makes it both a transferable asset and a ‘future proof’ product, for a global market.
As traffic management requirements change the products can be repositioned. This might happen if the volume of cyclists increase and the cycle lane needs to be wider or moved to another road, as part of an expanding network.
In terms design quality, we know that the appearance and aesthetics of our products are important to our customers. This is enhanced by the use of cast iron moulds that give a soft, organic surface finish. Also we offer a granite colour which is suited to sensitive/heritage locations.
The Rediweld Orca range of cycle safety products has evolved rapidly over the last three years. Products now include the original Orca, MiniOrca, Greenwich Wand Orca & Kerb Orca. Also we have a range of Splitter Islands that are 400, 500 & 600 mm wide and introducing our latest designed product the “Milestone” offering a 250mm wide alternative.
Green innovation is at the centre of our product development programme with Traffic Calming and cycle safety as our primary focus. The Lane Separators and Splitter Islands are the result of extensive consultation with engineers, planners, cycling groups and local authorities, including TfL. It is this degree of collaboration that has helped us develop successful products that have met our objectives.
Along with our cycle lane separators we also offer a wide range of Traffic calming products offering various safety measures compared to traditional materials which offer cost effective solutions, reduced permit costs and no excavations.
