Skate Deterrants

Pathfinder Skate Deterrents are a low cost and effective means of deterring skate boarders etc from using public places. The profile is designed not to create a trip hazard for the general public but to stop the speed of travel that the skate boarder / roller blader needs in an effort to jump off or onto steps / walls, or any other building which causes damage or danger to the pedestrian public.

The secret is to design the correct lay-out for affected areas and a Pathfinder consultant can help you.
