Essentially, these Rubber Wheel 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 rubber wheel stops that physically restrict the forward (or reverse) movement of a vehicle negotiating a conventional parking space.
Our rubber wheel 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.
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 wheel stops have been created as a barrier that allows vehicles to be safely parked up against them, and effectively eradicating any over-run.
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 wheel stops.
Elsewhere rubber wheel 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 wheel stop will communicate with the driver before this becomes a threat. Think of our rubber wheel stops as an early warning system.
Our range of versatile rubber parking stops serve a number of purposes and are used in many different scenarios. Amongst the most subscribed environments, our rubber parking stops regularly appear in customer's home garages, business car parks and commercial showrooms, while we've also seen an increase in enquiries from car park operators, retail parks, airports and industrial sites.

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 wheel stops come complete with fixing bolts and are both UV stable and oil and heat-resistant.
