Concrete parking bumpers, also known as wheel stops, are barriers installed in parking lots and garages to prevent vehicles from overshooting a parking space and potentially causing damage to other vehicles or buildings. They are typically made from pre-cast concrete installed directly on the pavement. Also, anchored to the pavement using various means, such as rebar and epoxy.
They are effective and durable for marking parking spaces and preventing accidents. Low in maintenance and can withstand heavy use and exposure to the elements. They are ideal for use in commercial and public parking lots, private garages, and driveways.
Wheel stops are typically installed at the front of a parking spot. They are designed to stop a vehicle’s wheels from rolling over the line, which will help to maintain the parking lot organization and make it easier for drivers to park their vehicles. They are also designed to protect the parking lot from damage caused by the constant movement of vehicles.
Concrete parking bumpers are a cost-effective solution for parking lot safety compared to other options, such as asphalt or rubber wheel stops. They are also customizable and can be painted with different colors to match the parking lot design or with reflective paint for increased visibility at night.
Parking bumpers can be attached to asphalt, concrete paving, and gravel surfacing using dowels. On structured parking decks, it may be necessary to use an epoxy-setting bed.
