Wheel stops are made of different materials such as plastics, wood, metal, concrete, and recycled rubber. Common installation techniques include mechanical pinning, epoxy, and gravity weighted.
While all these installations are useful, they are not 100 percent full proof or maintenance free. One can easily knock an epoxied wheel stop, making it lose. If you bolt a wheel stop or anchor it through mechanical pinning, repeated hitting can destroy the area around the anchor.
This, in turn, creates channels for water to penetrate, which results in more hazards. Another great damage is snow-plowing operation; it tends to push the wheel stops out of the alignment. For this reason, you must check and examine the existing wheel stops on a regular basis. Check for factors such as cracking, corrosion, deterioration, and misalignment.
Here are dos and don’ts when placing wheel stops in your parking lot:
If you have a parking lot or parking garage with high vehicle or pedestrian traffic and you want to install or remove Wheel Stops, here is a detailed installation guide for accurate installation.
How to Get Started
Start the installation process by recognizing your requirements. Certain things to help you decide are:
1. The Traffic Volume: High or low
2. Area of Installation: Industrial, Commercial, or residential.
3. Type of Vehicles: Trucks and Cars
Make sure your Wheel Stops are put on a flat surface before you start.
1. Look for the right place of installation.
2. Put the Wheel Stop at the exact position and drill a guide hole in the concrete through each hole with a 14mm masonry drill bit to mark the surface, and make it clear where to carry on drilling.
3. Take out the Wheel Stop and clear the concrete dust in the application region.
4. Keep drilling each guide hole to an estimated depth of about 120mm.
5. Brush out the concrete dust that built up in the drilling process.
6. Insert the plastic plug element of the fixing within the drilled hole and mallet in.
7. Position the Wheel Stop on the holes, line up and use the M10 screw to put it through the Wheel Stop and into the plastic plug.
8. Finally, tighten the M10 screw with your 17mm socket.
