Why Install Wheel Stops

Have you been to a car park with poor maintenance? That line marking isn’t clear and the flooring is dirty? This is a big hassle for drivers because it can cause accidents and costly repairs. To avoid vehicle crash, a car park must have wheel stops feature. These are made at the end of the concrete to avoid damages.

As you know, some drivers don’t look in the rear-view while parking. As a result, they can bump into a wall or other parked vehicles. Not only the driver will shoulder the structural damage but also the affected car as well. Blind spots cause accidents and there are two ways to avoid it. One is by being extra careful and two, wheel stops. There are also instances when parked cars reverse and this poses a huge danger which is known as reverse park accident. But this can be prevented through the installation of wheel stoppers.

Types of Wheel Stops

  • Concrete – Compared to other materials, concrete is much heavier but lasts longer. It’s low-maintenance and you only need a few scrubs to finally clean the surface.
  • Rubber – These are lighter than concrete but heavier than plastic. The rubber wheel stops are portable. This is perfect if you are going to sponsor an event and the car park area has no line markings.
  • Compliance – Made with very durable polyethene material which resists fading, cracking, and rotting and is available in three colours.

If the car park has no vehicle stopper, you can always bring your own to protect your car from dents and scratches. As you know, paint and repairs are pricey so it is better to purchase protective tools for the car. For limited edition rubber and compliance wheel stops, contact Group One Line Marking today.
