Have you conducted a Cost Benefit Analysis for TripStop?

Yes. We have done so many times. We have the classic ‘Bayside’ example backed with a testimonial on our website, which shows a fantastic cost benefit result.

In 2004 Bayside City Council installed TripStop in slabs adjacent to a troublesome tree at a cost of $74. In 2007 they reported having so far saved $1,800. Further, they estimated the expected total savings to reach $6,000 by 2013.

That’s a saving of $81 for each $1 invested in TripStop.

Why is TripStop different?

TripStop is a patented articulation or double hinge joint. Where TripStop is used exclusively in a concrete path, it becomes a universal joint. It accommodates expansion, contraction, and differential movement.

Unlike other jointing systems, our unique, patented jointing system doesn’t just lock slabs together. It accommodates upward and downward pressure caused by soil movement or tree root invasion and allows the slabs to move without causing displacement or tripping hazards.

How strong is TripStop?

TripStop has never failed in any test, even when raised up under load, one-sided or twisted.

Extensive testing of TripStop in-house and by independents has shown no sign of failure in any test.

We put extreme weights on the articulated slabs and could not damage the TripStop or the concrete.

What is TripStop’s lifespan?

The lifespan of PVC, and thus TripStop, is measured in decades. The virgin PVC compound used to make TripStop is UV and ozone stabilised. It’s also well protected, encased in concrete and buried underground.

All facts point to TripStop outlasting the engineered life of the concrete path.

What is TripStop made from?

100% recyclable, high-strength, UV stabilised, lead and cadmium free virgin co-extruded PVC.

PVC handles aggressive alkaline (salty) conditions.
