Ideal for retail, commercial, business garages, wheel stop ensures vehicles stop at the proper space, inhibiting contact with an end barrier or high curb.
The next thing to consider after striping your parking lot is wheel stops.
Also called as parking blocks, tire stoppers, wheel stoppers, and curb stops, they are a small barrier installed at the top of parking spaces to signal drivers when they reach the edge of a parking space. This is to prevent them from parking on sidewalks or entering into medians or other restricted areas, creating an organized parking area while helping reduce the risk of damage to vehicles, landscaping and structures.
Wheel stops are the standard for parking lots, commercial garages and truck stops. In fact, they have long been an essential choice when it comes to wheel stops. They are durable and long lasting. Relatively heavier compared to any other material, it makes it difficult to be stolen and can be used in permanent parking spaces and buildings. Once installed, they don't typically move a lot which is a good thing.
Having wheel stops prevent vehicles from entering pedestrian areas, such as sidewalks and pathways, reducing the dangers of collisions.
Wheel stops help manage the flow of traffic inside public or commercial parking spaces. Besides establishing right flow of traffic, wheel stops also halt drivers from pulling into oncoming lanes or driving in the wrong direction.
