KENT, Wash., April 1, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A good portion of the North American housing developments built after 1980 utilized less expensive rolled curb driveway entrances. The result of this curb design can be a bone jarring shock, or worse a vehicle can bottom out causing the chassis, undercarriage, or exhaust system to scrape as homeowners enter and exit their driveway.
This can cause expensive vehicle damage and leave permanent scrape marks on the driveway surface. In addition, wheels can be bent and wheel alignment affected which in turn causes excess tire wear and increased fuel consumption.
It is estimated that over 9 million rolled curb driveway entries exist in the U.S. and Canada. Made 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 or 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, and fit any width driveway.
The product was invented by John Curry after he purchased a home with a rolled curb driveway. "I experienced the daily annoyance of being jostled each time I entered or exited my driveway, not to mention the long-term damage to my tires, wheels, and steering components," said Curry, the president and owner of Bridjit, Inc. "Instead of paying for an expensive modification to my driveway entry, my concept was to develop a low-impact, low cost ramp that would provide homeowners with an easy entry and exiting experience."
Made in the USA, a three section (left, right and center) set of Bridjit Curb Ramps sells for a MSRP of $299. Additional modular sections may be purchased at $99 per section, plus freight.
Bridjit Curb Ramps are sold nationwide both direct from the company and through a number of Internet and retail resellers. For more information, phone: (877) 522-6611, e-mail: email@example.com, or visit: .
