Concrete Wheel Stops v Rubber Wheel Stops - Make the Right Choice

When it comes wheel stop options make sure you have all the facts you need to make the right product choice. Choose from a wide range of high quality parking kerbs delivered fast from stock.


Concrete wheel stops are often used to protect car park assets from damage. Where they may seem like a solid option there are arguments for and against their use. Ideally, rubber or plastic wheel stops should be installed for several reasons.

·       Concrete wheel stops are more expensive to buy and maintain
·       Concrete is harder and more expensive to repair
·       Creates further hazards if broken pieces fall off the wheel stops
·       Concrete is not environmentally friendly can not be recycled
·       Concrete is much harder to install and may require more on-site labour

Rubber wheel stops and plastic wheel stops on the other hand –
·       Are much cheaper to purchase and require little maintenance
·       Can be easily replaced in case of damage
·       Will not chip, rot or crack while in use
·       Are usually made from recycled materials and are environmentally friendly
·       Can be installed easily where needed
·       Usually include reflective markings for increased visibility
 
Concrete Wheel Stops v Rubber Wheel Stops
There are a lot more advantages to using rubber wheel stops instead of their concrete counterparts. While concrete may seem like a solid option they are not ideal for long term use. As mentioned before, if concrete breaks it is harder to repair. When concrete becomes broken it can become unsightly and gritty.

Rubber wheel stops on the other hand do not crack or break and can be replaced if needed. Concrete also tends to be quite bare – rubber wheel stops usually have reflective markings for increased visibility while in use.
 
Concrete wheel stops and the environment
As concrete wheel stops do not offer the same protection to the environment it is better that alternatives are used. Again rubber or plastic wheel stops are usually made from recycled materials and can be disposed of naturally if needed. Concrete does not offer this benefit and may be more harmful to the environment in the long term.
