Hard-Wearing Rubber Wheel Stops to Protect Car Park Assets

Why use rubber wheel stops? They are higher in quality and lower in price compared to concrete versions. Their flexible design allows them to contour to uneven surfaces. The rubber material will not chip, rot or crack while in use. Rubber wheel stops require little to no maintenance and can be installed easily.

Use rubber wheel stops to reduce the risk of collisions in car parks. The design helps drivers to know where they need to stop within a parking space. Reduce vehicle collisions with other vehicles and nearby assets. 

Benefits of rubber wheel stops 

There are many benefits to using rubber wheel stops instead of other versions. Rubber wheel stops are

  • Much more cost-effective than other versions
  • Flexible in design and can contour to uneven surfaces
  • Equipped with reflective markings for increased visibility
  • Easy to install and can be bolted down instantly
  • Extremely durable and will not chip, rot or crack while in use
  • Easy to replace or reinstate elsewhere 

Unlike plastic wheel stops rubber versions will also conform to uneven surfaces. This allows for easier installation in car parks, whether they are concrete or tarmac.

How to install rubber wheel stops

  • Insert the wheel stops into the area you wish to install it – this is usually 900mm from the top of the parking space
  • Mark the holes for the wheel stop using the required drill bit and drill
  • When marked, remove the wheel stop and clean as necessary
  • Fully drill the pilot holes until you reach the required depth
  • Re-insert the wheel stop and tighten the fixings into position

It is recommended to carry out a risk assessment before installing rubber wheel stops on site. Risk assessments involve area measurement, assessing the vehicles using the parking spaces, and nearby obstacles in the vicinity. Ensure the area is completely clear of dangers before wheel stops are installed.

Similar installation methods can also be used for plastic wheel stops.

How to select the best rubber wheel stop

· XPT Wheel Stop 1800mm Yellow – complete rubber design for long-lasting use. Equipped with highly visible moulded yellow markings. Easily installed directly into concrete or tarmac.
· Heavy Duty HGV Wheel Stop – requires two units per parking bay. Higher design to bring HGVs to a halt. Suitable for using articulated lorries in the busiest of freight depots.
· Park Aid Rubber Wheel Stop 1200mm – complete rubber design with discernible moulded markings. Shorter 1200mm size to accommodate irregular car parking spaces. May require two per parking space.  

XPT rubber wheel stops provide the best quality option for bringing cars to a stop within parking spaces. Unlike cheaper alternatives XPT Wheel Stops include moulded yellow markings instead of stuck-on markings. This provides better visibility for the kerbs and reduces wear and tear to the markings over time.

Rubber Wheel Stops for HGVs

Rubber wheel stops can be used to bring HGVs to a halt within loading bays and freight depots. HGVs will generally require heavy-duty kerbs in order to accommodate the larger vehicle axles. Truck wheel stops are also available in steel as well as rubber.

Steel wheel stops can provide a long-lasting option for LGVs, coaches and more. Note the type of wheel stop you require - in some cases one unit will be required for each vehicle wheel, where other options may accommodate the full vehicle width.
