Curb ramps utilize recycled tires


Bridjit, Inc. demonstrates its commitment to the environment by the way it makes its product is made. Bridjit manufactures the Bridjit Curb Ramp driveway entry replacement solution by utilizing crumb rubber sourced from recycled tires. It is estimated that there are at least 275 million scrap tires stockpiled in the United States.

“Each Bridjit rubber curb ramp set represents 12 passenger tires that were recycled,” says Bridjit president John Curry.

A tire recycling operation takes scrap tires and reduces them in size to a small chip. The small chip is reduced further by removing the fiber and wire. It is then ground into a fine powder known as crumb rubber. The same material used to make Bridjit Curb Ramps is utilized as flooring material for school playgrounds and for manufacturing fitness mats.

Bridjit Curb Ramps are a high-quality green solution that helps reduce the jarring and underside vehicle damage that occurs from a roll-over curb driveway entry. Bridjit helps reduce bad backs, bent rims and damaged tires. It’s ideal for cars, trucks, SUVs, boats, golf carts, RVs or any type of vehicle.
