Truck Wheel Stops provide a means for bringing trucks to a stop within a parking bay or loading area. The wheel stops alert the driver that they have reached the end of a space and to prevent them from impacting with other vehicles or infrastructure.
PITTMAN have Irelands widest range of wheel stops and have a large selection of parking blocks suitable for use with HGVs and trucks. Our truck parking blocks come in either rubber or steel and both options are extremely durable. One of the most popular rubber wheel stops is the MKII HGV Wheel stop, ideal for freight areas and loading bays.
For steel truck wheel stops our HGV Dock Bumper 1200mm is a highly durable option - the steel frame is fitted with a tough rubber bumper on the front for absorbing the truck tyres as they come into position.

Rubber Truck Wheel Stops v Steel Truck Wheel Stops
- Rubber is rust free for life
- Rubber is less expensive than steel
- Steel comes in high visibility yellow
- Our steel wheel stops are slightly taller (170mm compared to 150mm)
- Steel may be aesthetically better looking
- Steel will have a greater impact resistance for ultra-heavy loads
For the toughest environments e.g. quarries, some clients prefer to use a steel wheel stop rather than rubber.
All of our steel wheel stops are first hot-dip galvanised and then powder coated – so even if some of the paint chips follow an impact, the wheel stop should still never rust due to the galvanisation. While our steel wheel stops have been galvanised to the highest standards, remember if installed near seawater or anywhere with salt some rusting will inevitably occur – so we recommend using our rubber wheel stops in these areas .e.g. ports or road gritting depots.
