All Wheel Stops

Wheel Stops are the most effective way to reduce vehicle impacts in car parks. They are typically installed in parking spaces to prevent vehicles from colliding with other parked cars and infrastructure. Having wheel stops in place significantly reduces the risk of accidents and costly repairs. 

How to select the correct wheel stop
There are different wheel stop designs and sizes to choose from. To select the correct wheel stop, answer some questions about the area. 

  • What type of vehicles will use the wheel stops
  • The area the wheel stops are required in
  • The surface the wheel stops will be bolted to

See the below for a quick guide on choosing the right wheel stops.

  • XPT Wheel Stop 1800mm Yellow – complete rubber design. Suitable for use with regular cars and vans. One-piece design for an easy install. Rubber design conforms to uneven surfaces.
  • Heavy Duty HGV Wheel Stop – made from 95% recycled tyres. Suitable for HGVs and articulated lorries. It requires two units per parking bay (1 per wheel)— ideal for concrete and tarmac installation.
  • Park Aid Rubber Wheel Stop 1200mm – recycled rubber design. Suitable for cars and vans. They require two units per parking space. Use where 1800mm kerbs may be too long for the area. 
  • Parker 1100 Wheel Stop – PPC plastic design. Suitable for use with cars. Will require two units per parking space. Will not rust, rot or crack while in use.

How to install Wheel Stops
Wheel stops are typically installed 900mm from the head of the parking space. They allow cars to maintain a safe distance from other vehicles and infrastructure. This distance may vary depending on the area. It is advisable to conduct the site's risk assessment to determine the best course of action for installation. Things to check before installation also include

  • The types of vehicles reversing in and out of the spaces
  • Nearby obstructions and blind-spots for vehicles
  • Will larger cars protrude too much from the parking space when parked

Wheel Stops Installation
Install wheel stops easily using standard tools. For installation, you will need – 

  • A drill
  • Appropriate sized drillbit
  • Measuring tape or measuring wheel

There are six easy steps to follow when installing wheel stops.

  1. Assess the area for any obstructions or dangers
  2. Place the wheel stop approximately 900mm from the top of the parking space
  3. Mark the holes of the wheel stop using the drill and drillbit
  4. Once the holes are marked, remove the wheel stop 
  5. Drill the appropriate size holes for each fixing (standard is approximately 160mm deep)
  6. Insert the wheel stop back into place and tighten fixings into position

Most wheel stops are suitable for installing into concrete or tarmac. However, it is advised never to install wheel stops into block paving.

Rubber v Plastic Wheel Stops
Rubber and plastic are two common materials for wheel stops. The area type and preference may determine which wheel stop will best suit your project. 

Rubber wheel stops

  • Made from recycled rubber material – hard wearing
  • Suitable for cars, vans and HGVs
  • Easy installation – bolt down
  • Flexible – contours to uneven ground if needed
  • Highly visible – includes reflective markings

Plastic Wheel Stops

  • Made from robust PPC plastic – highly durable
  • Suitable for cars and vans
  • Easy installation – bolt down
  • Non-flexible – ideal for level surfaces only
  • Non-reflective – ideal for well-lit environments
  • Will not chip, rot or crack while in use

Are wheel stops a trip hazard?
There are several measures you can take to make sure wheel stops are not a trip hazard. First, ensure the area is well lit - the wheel stops need to be highly visible at all times, especially at night. Second, only install them in areas with prominent parking spaces in use. Finally, ensure you are purchasing wheel stops with reflective markings for increased visibility.

How are the reflective markings installed?
Rubber wheel stops should have their reflective markings moulded on. The XPT wheel stops come with high quality moulded markings for increased visibility and resistance to wear. Avoid cheaper alternatives that have markings glued on. Adhesive markings are more likely to come off over time.

Wheel Stops to Protect EV Charging Stations
Wheel stops have become a standard item in protecting EV charging stations. The kerbs can reduce the risk of impact to chargers and reduce expensive repair costs. In addition, the wheel stops are often coupled with bollards, correct signage and ground markings to ensure a high-quality experience with electric vehicle owners.
Use wheel stops at EV charging stations to –

  • Reduce the risk of impact to EV charging equipment
  • Reduce the risk of damage to electric vehicles
  • Provide a visual aid for drivers to park at charging stations correctly

Truck Wheel Stops to Reduce Accidents in Busy Freight Depots
Truck wheel stops assist with bringing articulated lorries to a halt within parking bays. They will reduce the risk of vehicle collisions and damage to warehouse infrastructure.
There are a few key things to remember about installing truck wheel stops.

  • Two wheel stops per parking bay – 1 unit required per wheel
  • Includes a shorter side to allow for vehicle rollback, reducing the risk of stranded vehicles
  • Highly visible moulded markings to help drivers line up correctly
  • Suitable for installing into concrete or tarmac
  • Ideal for long term use – will not bend or deform during use

Top Tips for Wheel Stops

  • Avoid concrete wheel stops – rubber or plastic wheel stops are easier to replace and more cost-effective
  • Never install wheel stops into block paving – only concrete or tarmac surfaces are suitable
  • You should not drive over wheel stops - this is not their intended purpose
  • 160mm coachscrews are ideal for installing into concrete and tarmac
  • Install wheel stops approximately 900mm back from the head of the parking space or object
  • Moulded markings provide a longer-lasting hi-vis design – avoid cheaper models that have their markings glued on
  • HGV wheel stops include a shorter side to prevent vehicles from becoming stranded
  • Wheel stops may appear by other names, including wheel stoppers, car stoppers, parking kerbs and parking blocks
