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 parking block or a curb stop, is installed in parking lots to assist drivers in parking the vehicle properly. Installation methods can include bolting down the product to the ground or using gravity weighted method for heavy stops like those made of concrete.
By using these in a parking lot, you can limit the chances of vehicle encroachment on to the sidewalk. As a result, pedestrians can safely walk on the pavement with a lower risk of vehicles, which may end up intruding into the pavement.
Are they effective?
They are helpful in solving the problem of haphazard parking, which causes problems for pedestrians and sometimes even store owners. A parking lot that uses compliant products will be able to control and manage incoming and outgoing traffic with fewer efforts.
It also keeps cars free of scratches caused because drivers can feel the wheel stop and know when to stop instead of hitting the wall or the pavement. When used in combination with bollards and speed humps, these can be useful in managing traffic in an area.
In order to reduce hazards or problems with these traffic control products, you must ensure the following:
Australian standards for wheel stops
The Australian Standard AS2890.1: 2004 outlines the design, use, and placement of this product.
Use and placement
The standard requires all users to avoid a situation where these products 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 placement of the vehicles depends on two factors – the height of the curb and whether the vehicle will be parked front in or rear in.
For front in parking, if the curb 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 curb 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 curb height is less than 150mm high then the distance will be 900mm for 100mm high stops. If the curb height if more than 150mm then the distance between the curb or wall and the stop will be 1100mm for 100mm high stops.
Features and benefits of using Enforcer Group’s wheel stops
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 strong weather conditions with little or no damage.
We build and import stops with a simple design which requires only three anchors. This makes it easy to install with relatively less help. The rubber and poly products are lightweight too. They are designed to be mounted on concrete as well as asphalt except for the truck wheel stops, which are not recommended for asphalt or gravel surfaces.
All our products in this category are manufactured from 100% recyclable or recycled materials. It helps you keep the environment in mind and reduce your carbon footprint.
We design our stops to be compliant with Australian standards helping our clients conform with the regulations and reduce risks of negative audits.
What material is suitable for such products?
We use different materials for manufacturing them 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 also prone to cracking and damage.
While rubber in outdoor areas chip, fade and crack, recycled plastic has proven to be more durable. It is possible that you may end up replacing rubber wheel stops very frequently because they may suffer damage in harsh climates. But plastic wheel stops 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.
