Rubber Wheel Stops

Rubber wheel stops are generally made from a recycled rubber material. They are hard-wearing during regular use and are suitable for cars, vans and HGVs. Single-piece designs mean fast installation, while the flexible nature allows them to contour to uneven ground. Reflective markings help with boosting visibility.

Plastic wheels tops are usually made with a tough PPC plastic material and will. no chip, rot or crack whilen in use. They are highly durable and suitable for use with cars and vans only. The plastic design reduces flexibility so they are only suitable for level surfaces. The non-reflective design also means that they are suitable for well-lit environments.

Steel is a suitable wheel stop option for heavy duty environments. They are common in warehouses, freight depots and most other industrial settings. Additionally, they can be used as wheel guides for turkc parking bays, with a higher profile to suit HGVs and articulated lorries.

Wheel Chocks

They can be used with cars and vans but are more common with HGVs, trailers, aircraft, and other large vehicles. Wheel chocks are available in rubber and plastic and are loose lay for easy insertion and removal from behind vehicle wheels. Some options can be equipped with chains to bolt them down into the are of use, such as loading bays or airport aprons.

Wheel stops are one of our biggest selling ranges at PITTMAN. We keep large stocks of GNR rubber Park It rubber wheel stops at our main warehouse so that they are ready for collection or overnight delivery nationwide. Our steel wheel stops come directly from the manufacturer, and are again available for speedy delivery to any site nationwide, normally in 2 to 3 days but express options are also possible.

For HGVs and larger vehicles you will require truck wheel stops. Truck wheel stops are a rubber kerb designed to stop trucks from colliding in loading bays. A single wheel stop will be required for each vehicle wheel.

 

For any queries regarding choosing the right wheel stop, email our friendly expert advisers at sales@pittman.ie.

As we bring in the GNR Park IT Wheel Stops directly from the manufacturer in North America into our warehouse, we can offer unbeatable prices on a genuine rubber wheel stop.

How to install wheel stops

Fixing your wheel stop in place is simple with our wide range of manufacturer approved bolts for both concrete and tarmac. Installation into either surface is straightforward. A little more investigation and care is needed when installing parking kerbs into paving or cobble block. For these special surfaces we have found some success with either the concrete or the tarmac fixing, but in truth maybe some trial and error for paving slab surfaces - it's best to call us for advice on installation into block or paving surfaces.

Whatever type of parking area you have call PITTMAN, your trusted traffic and safety partner, for your next supply of rubber or steel wheel stops.

How to Choose the Right Wheel Stop

It's important to note what vehicles the wheel stops are required for. Most standard rubber wheel stops will suffice for cars or vans, but HGVs will require a more robust option due to the size and weight of the vehicle wheels.

Are you installing wheel stops in a car park? Or are you trying to bring vehicles to a halt within loading bays? The area will play a big role in what kind of wheel stops you need for your project. Tougher environments will require tougher wheel stops.

Be sure to note the surface type and integrity before installing wheel stops. Wheel stops are generally fine to install on concrete or tarmac but are not recommended into block paving. Complete a thorough risk assessment of the area and note any other obstacles or hazards that could effect the use of the wheel stops.

Wheel Stops FAQ

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. 

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.

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.

Top Tips for Wheel Stops
  • Avoid concrete wheel stops – rubber or plastic wheel stops are easier to replace and more cost-effective Rubber wheel stops are suitable for creating sustainable parking management and are much better for the environment
  • 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, tyre stoppers and parking blocks.
