Rubber Parking Stops

What Are Rubber Parking Stops?

Essentially, these Parking Stops are best described as blocks of recycled rubber which can be used to prevent parking accidents from occurring. A confidence-boosting and highly versatile product, First Mats is excited to supply these dedicated wheel stops that physically restrict the forward (or reverse) movement of a vehicle negotiating a conventional parking space.


Our rubber parking stops come in a range of colours and lengths which customers can choose from, yet all follow the same USP. That being to minimise any potential damage to a vehicle (your own, or someone else's in close proximity). Together with protecting the structural integrity of surrounding walls and buildings in a driver's parking trajectory; which typically results from low-speed impact.


Why the Need for Rubber Parking Stops?

At one time or another, many drivers will have inadvertently over-shot a parking space and perhaps made contact with another stationary vehicle or immovable object, albeit at very low speeds. These things tend to happen now and again. However our range of rubber parking stops have been created as a barrier that allows vehicles to be safely parked up against them; and effectively eradicating any over-run.


Are Rubber Parking Stops Used in Any other Situations?

Yes. Ultimately they have been created to guide drivers into challenging parking spaces and subsequently manage parking in appropriate settings. Ensuring that vehicles don't park too close to a kerb or pedestrian walkway where car bumpers may hang over and compromise a pedestrian's safety, are also boxes ticked by the presence of rubber parking stops.

Elsewhere rubber parking stops act as a barrier between two rows of allocated parking spaces so as to safeguard against accidental collisions, while also demonstrably protecting vehicles from high kerbs. Conversely, should a vehicle with low suspension risk damage in the event that a protruding front spoiler makes contact with a wall, then the rubber parking stop will communicate with the driver before this becomes a threat. Think of our rubber parking stops as an early warning system.

How Are Rubber Parking Stops Installed?

Quickly and easily is the simple answer to this particular question. Although this does depend on what surface you're planning on attaching the dedicated wheel stop to. As a general rule of thumb, our rubber parking stops should always be laid out on the floor prior to installation to establish they're located the optimum distance from any proximate obstacles. Naturally, the distance will vary according to the vehicle type/size being arrested by the wheel stops which systematically define the end of the parking bay.

Presented in highly visible reflective markings, our rubber parking stops come complete with fixing bolts and are both UV stable and oil and heat-resistant.
