Benefits of choosing rubber wheel stops
There are many benefits that come with choosing rubber wheel stops over alternative types of wheel stops, such as concrete.
For one, rubber wheel stops are more lightweight, making them easier to transport between destinations. This also makes them the ideal choice for locations that are inaccessible, as not as much effort is required to transport and unload them.
Rubber wheel stops are also easier to install because of this, meaning they can be on and ready in little time at all – perfect for circumstances where installation of rubber wheel stops is required at short notice.
A rubber wheel stop only needs one person for installation, too, whereas other wheel stop types may require two or more people to safely handle them. This also means you are less likely to require specialist equipment to move the stops into position. Because of this, rubber wheel stops are ideal for small businesses that have fewer employees or hands ready to help out.
Additionally, rubber wheel stops can be used as either a temporary or a permanent choice of a fixture, making them great for a broad range of uses and requirements. Whilst other choices of wheel stops may run the risk of damaging vehicles, rubber wheel stops do not cause damage to a low front-end vehicle, making them a safer alternative.
These rubber wheel stops are also made of recycled materials, making them an environmentally-friendly choice that even the most eco-conscious businesses can take pride in using.
Where to install rubber wheel stops
As rubber wheel stops are so durable, they are versatile in where they can be placed. Rubber wheel stops can be placed in a number of locations, including residential areas, fence lines, on uneven surfaces, and storefronts. Rubber wheel stops are also recommended for installation in any areas that experience a high volume of traffic, as well as any car and truck parking areas.
How to install rubber wheel stops
Following the purchase of your rubber wheel stops, ensure that the correct installation procedures are followed. For instance, it is crucial that you check for any underground cabling before work begins in order to avoid disrupting essential services.
Once this has been confirmed, you should proceed to determine where each rubber wheel stop will be placed and mark the ground accordingly. In doing so, ensure that you are compliant with the Australian wheel stop installation regulations.
To make sure that the rubber wheel stops are each installed in a straight line, the use of a string line is recommended.
Once done, you can begin to drill holes in the ground for the expansion bolts or spikes of the rubber wheel stops to go into for securing. When tightening the bolts or spikes, ensure that the final fit is tight and sturdy, and with no signs of looseness or risk of becoming undone.
