Rubber Wheel Stops go by a few names such as parking blocks, tyre stoppers and wheel stoppers and are used. They serve a variety of purposes from protecting vehicles from high kerbs to assisting coaches and trucks with parking in the correct position. Wheel stoppers are different from wheel chocks in that they are permanently installed and are bolted to the ground.
When used for trucks and coaches they are used to assist with the proper alignment of the vehicle, or as a reversing aid. With larger vehicles it is often harder to determine where the rear wheels of a vehicle are, by using stops drives can feel the rear wheels make contact resulting in improved safety.
Available in rubber or steel, these wheel stoppers are an excellent addition to loading bays, car parks and garages. Various sizes are available and complete with reflective tape for increased visibility for drivers.
