Types of
Wheel Stops

Rubber wheel stops

One of the most effective ways to bring vehicles to a stop. Rubber wheel stops are made from highly durable recycled rubber material. The rubber design makes them much more durable than concrete designs and easy to replace or reinstate if needed. They are also equipped with moulded reflective markings to boost visibility and aid with driver parking.

Truck wheel stops

Specially designed to bring LGVs and HGVs to a stop in loading bays or freight depots. The robust design means they won’t bend or deform from regular vehicle movements. The sloped surface on the rear of the truck wheel stops prevents vehicles from getting stuck while parking.

Plastic wheel stops

Lightweight kerbs designed for cars and light commercial vehicles. Single piece plastic designs are lightweight, making them easy to install on site. Plastic designs are extremely durable and will not break or corrode like concrete or steel options.

What are Wheel Stops used for?
