Maintenance-free public footpaths and cycleways might be hard to imagine if you’re new to TripStop or currently using an inferior jointing system.
Unlike other products, our patented design doesn’t just lock slabs together in an attempt to stop them from being displaced by tree root invasion and soil movement.
Instead, TripStop allows the concrete slabs to move without disconnecting and displacing. This puts an end to footpath tripping hazards requiring ongoing maintenance, such as grinding, and replacement that damages the environment. The result is sustainable footpaths and cycleways.
You can choose our patented, award-winning design with confidence, knowing TripStop’s been used by over 200 councils with zero fails and zero returns. Take a look at our case study.
To give you added peace of mind about our no-fail results, we’ve consistently tested TripStop’s performance. And we’ve had it independently tested by RMIT, Melbourne Testing Services (MTS) and Design + Industrial (D+I).
Even with our protected, patented design and a proven track record spanning two decades, some other products claim to be equivalent to TripStop.
But, once you view our test results, you’ll understand why we’re confident to stake our claim as the most effective concrete jointing system available. There are no equivalents.
Back in 2002, long-time friends Peter Mclean and Ron Gallagher combined innovative thinking with commercial acumen to improve footpath sustainability.
It all started when Peter observed some repairs being carried out on a footpath near his home in Mont Albert, Victoria. He thought about all the concrete footpaths and cycleways in every Australian suburb. Then he wondered about the expense, disruption and environmental harm caused by ongoing pathway maintenance.
Being an established inventor and keen environmentalist, Peter got to work on the problem and created the concept for TripStop.
He shared the idea with his friend, Ron, a Chartered Accountant, as they’d worked together before. They did their research, consulted with engineers, patent attorneys and other experts, and realised the simple idea could resolve a substantial problem.
Since then, over 200 progressive councils around Australia and the globe have embraced TripStop. The profile has evolved over time and TripStop has become an essential component of sustainable public footpath and cycleway design.
Infrastructure Sustainability can be defined as infrastructure that is designed, constructed and operated to optimise environmental, social and economic outcomes of the long term.
Peter’s interest in protecting the environment was the catalyst for inventing TripStop. It still drives our commitment to improved sustainability in community infrastructure.Find Out More
