Enforcer Group carries the biggest range of Wheel Stops in Australia. Wheel stops is a safeguard for bumpers and wheel damage against kerbs and walls. Our Wheel stop range features a heavy duty environmentally friendly model which Provides high visibility
A wheel stop, also known as a car park stopper, parking block or a kerb stop, is installed in parking lots to assist drivers in parking their vehicle safely and orderly. By using these in a parking lot, you can limit the risk of vehicles encroaching onto the footpath. As a result, pedestrians can safely walk on the pavement without the danger of being obstructed by vehicles, and vehicles can avoid damage from hitting gutters and raised footpaths.
Installation methods for wheel stops can include bolting the product down into the ground or using a gravity weighted method for heavy stops like those made of concrete.
Enforcer Group designs these products for high durability. We source quality materials to ensure these stops are manufactured to last longer and are able to survive harsh weather conditions with little or no damage.
We build and import stops with a simple design which requires only three anchors. This makes them easy to install with relatively little help, particularly our lightweight rubber and poly products. They are designed to be mounted on concrete or asphalt surfaces — except for our truck wheel stops, which are not recommended for asphalt or gravel surfaces.
All of our products in this category are manufactured from 100% recyclable or recycled materials. We pride ourselves on keeping the environment in mind and helping to reduce the carbon footprint.
Compliant with Australian Standards
We design our stops to be compliant with Australian standards, helping our clients ensure they are compliant with regulations and reduce the risk of negative audits.
The nature of road accidents vary, and so, too, must the equipment to prevent or minimise them. Enforcer Group has wheel stops available that can prepare you for any scenario, from incredibly strong polyethylene, recycled plastic, and much more that prove far more effective than traditional concrete models.
Wheel stops are very effective in solving the problem of haphazard parking, which can cause problems for pedestrians, other car park users, and store or business owners. A car park that uses compliant products will be able to control and manage incoming and outgoing traffic with fewer efforts.
They also help cars avoid becoming damaged or scratched from hitting walls or kerbs, as drivers will feel their tyres hitting the wheel stop first. When used in combination with bollards and speed humps, these can be useful in managing traffic in a car park or parking area.
In order to reduce hazards or problems with these traffic control products, you must ensure the following:
The Australian Standard AS2890.1: 2004 outlines the design, use, and placement of wheel stops:
These standards also require all users to avoid a situation where wheel stops hinder the path of pedestrians moving to and from the vehicles or crossing a car parking space for any reason. This is done to reduce pedestrian hazards caused by traffic control products.
The best placement for wheel stops depends on two factors – the height of the kerb and whether the vehicle will be parked front in or rear in.
For front in parking: If the kerb height is less than 150mm high, then the distance between the stop and the front of the parking space will be 620mm for 100mm high wheel stops. On the other hand, if the kerb height is higher than 150mm or it is a wall, then the distance between the stop and the front of the parking space will be 820mm for 100mm high stops.
For rear in parking: If the kerb height is less than 150mm high then the distance will be 900mm for 100mm high stops. If the kerb height is more than 150mm then the distance between the kerb or wall and the stop will be 1100mm for 100mm high stops.
We use a few different materials for manufacturing our wheel stops like recycled plastic, Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE), and recycled rubber. Some companies also use concrete for manufacturing stops, but they are not environment friendly and they are prone to cracking and damage.
While rubber in outdoor areas can chip, fade and crack, recycled plastic has proven to be more durable. It is possible that you may end up replacing rubber wheel stops frequently because they suffer damage in harsh climates. Plastic wheel stops on the other hand can last longer.
The Enforcer Wheel Stop is made of recycled plastic and comes with 5 years of warranty, which is more than the warranty offered on any of the other stops in our range.
