Wheel Stops Supply and Installation

Rubber, Concrete & Steel Wheel Stops

Wheel stops are a practical, cost-effective solution to prevent damage and/or safety hazards in bustling carparks. Our wheel stops are constructed with premium quality rubber, steel, or concrete, and when fixed to the floor of a car bar prevent damage to walls, garden beds, or curbs and keep footpaths free from obstruction.

Rubber Wheel Stops

Rubber wheel stops are a popular style of wheel stop, offering a reliable, lightweight alternative to concrete or steel. Our rubber wheel stops are designed to withstand constant impact and harsh UV rays, and feature a hi-vis design for improved visibility.

Concrete Wheel Stops

Concrete wheel stops are robust and hard-wearing, with the added benefit of personalisation. Paint your concrete wheel stops with your logo, a name, surrounding colours, or contrasting colours for higher visibility. Our concrete wheel stops are compliant with Australian/New Zealand Standards 2890.1:2004, and are a strong, superior choice.

Steel Wheel Stops

Steel wheel stops are a lightweight, environmentally friendly alternative to rubber or concrete wheel stops, and are ideal for carparks requiring heavy-duty protection. These wheel stops won’t chip, bend, snap, or otherwise deteriorate thanks to their UV resistance. This makes them the perfect solution to withstand the harsh weather conditions in Australia.

In addition to our rubber, concrete and steel wheel stops, we also offer high-tech linear density polyethylene (LLDPE) compliance wheel stops. Designed to meet sustainability requirements, these wheel stops are easy to install, don’t fade, rot or rust and are an excellent alternative to a rubber wheel stop.

Benefits of using wheel stops

Protect vehicles from damage: Wheel stops can help to prevent vehicles from rolling into other vehicles or pedestrians, which can cause damage to both property and people.

Protect pedestrians from injury: Wheel stops can also help to prevent pedestrians from being injured by vehicles that roll into them.

Improve traffic flow: Wheel stops can help to improve traffic flow by preventing vehicles from encroaching on walkways and cycle paths.

Extend the life of your car park surface: Wheel stops can help to extend the life of your car park surface by preventing vehicles from damaging it with their wheels.
Where to use wheel stops
Wheel stops can be used in a variety of places, including:

  • Car parks
  • Garages
  • Loading bays
  • Pedestrian walkways
  • Cycle paths

How to choose the right wheel stops:

Selecting the appropriate wheel stops involves careful consideration of various factors to ensure optimal functionality and effectiveness. These include:

  • The type of traffic that will be using the wheel stops

Begin by assessing the type of traffic expected to utilise the wheel stops. Different settings, such as commercial parking lots or industrial spaces, may experience diverse traffic patterns, ranging from standard vehicles to heavier industrial equipment.

  • The size of the vehicles that will be using the wheel stops

Next, evaluate the size of the vehicles frequenting the area. Standard-sized cars, trucks or larger industrial vehicles necessitate wheel stops with specific dimensions and load-bearing capacities. Ensuring compatibility with the range of vehicle sizes is crucial for the wheel stops to serve their purpose effectively.

  • The environment in which the wheel stops will be used

Additionally, take into account the environmental conditions where the wheel stops will be deployed. Outdoor settings may expose wheel stops to varying weather conditions, such as rain, heat or freezing temperatures. Opt for materials that withstand environmental challenges, ensuring longevity and sustained performance.

No, wheel stops can vary in size, shape, and material. The type of wheel stop needed will depend on the specific application and the type of vehicle that will be parked. For example, a smaller wheel stop may be suitable for a motorcycle or scooter, while a larger and more durable wheel stop may be required for heavy trucks and buses. Additionally, wheel stops can be made of materials such as concrete, rubber, plastic, or metal, with each material offering different benefits and drawbacks. It’s important to choose the right wheel stop for your needs to ensure proper parking and safety. Generally, the weight of a wheel stop indicates its strength. Some retailers have 12 to 15 kg wheel stops, but the commercial medium rubber wheel stop will be about 17kg.

The Australian Standard for wheel stops and wheel chocks is AS 2890.1:2004. This standard outlines the specifications for the design, materials, installation, and maintenance of wheel stops and wheel chocks in parking areas, driveways, loading zones, and other areas where vehicles need to be parked or secured.

According to the standard, wheel stops must be made of durable and impact-resistant materials, such as concrete, rubber, or steel. They must be securely anchored to the ground and positioned to prevent vehicles from overhanging or obstructing pedestrian pathways or other areas.

By adhering to the Australian Standard for wheel stops and wheel chocks, facility managers can ensure the safety of their employees, customers, and visitors, while also protecting their property from damage caused by vehicles.
