Super Strong Wheel Stops
100% recycled rubber wheel stops that are durable, long-lasting and reliable. These rubber wheels are the perfect alternative to concrete stops, cost a great deal less to install, and do not require heavy lift equipment. Research has shown that over a period of 10 years, concrete stops will cost six times more than recycled rubber wheel stops. In that period of time, concrete stops will suffer from cracking and other costly maintenance issues. Heavy duty rubber wheel stops have bevelled ends, unlike concrete wheel stops that extend past wheels and can be a tripping and health and safety hazard.

Reasons you should choose recycled Northpac wheel stops instead of concrete:
Wheel stops are installed in most large and small parking lots to help vehicles come to a halt and protect buildings, kerbs, sidewalks, and landscape from damage. These products are known as disability wheel stops, as well as car stops, parking kerbs, parking bumpers, parking blocks, and many other names. Before recycled plastic wheel stops were on the scene, concrete was the chosen product and material. Since then, they have been replaced with materials that are more durable and are environmentally friendly including recycled plastic disability wheel stops.
Do these wheel stops work for carparks and Multi-level garages?
Yes they do, wheel stops work for parking lots, parking garages, factories and warehouses. They can be used as a car stop, a kerb or a bumper cushion inside a factory or warehouse. They help provide proper parking delineating spots and vehicle distancing. Ideal in multi-level carparks as a safe and durable wheel stop. They define an area by their different colours to the standard wheel stops so can be clearly seen for disabled drivers looking for a disability parking space.
How do you install Wheel Stops?
Rubber or plastic wheel stops can be installed on either asphalt or concrete. For concrete/asphalt, you would drill holes through the product’s holes and use dynabolts to secure in the wheel stop. Another option for asphalt is that you could drill holes through the product’s holes and drive fixing spikes through the product.
Concrete Wheel Stops vs Recycled Plastic Wheel Stops – What’s the difference?
Northpac 100% recycled plastic wheel stops are durable wheel stops and won’t crack or chip like concrete. Plastic disability wheel stops have a more aesthetic and professional look with blue or green reflective strips to dress up the car park to impress visiting disabled parked cars with a quality wheel stopped carpark boosting durable recycled wheel stops and making it easier for disabled drivers to find an easy and convenient parking space.
Why are Disabled Wheel Stops Important?
Disabled Wheel stops are placed in parking lots to allow disabled drivers to park in a convenient place handy to shops instead of having to park on footpaths, median strips or other restricted areas. By physically obstructing a car’s wheels, they keep drivers from pulling through a parking space or attempting other risky maneuvers.
When you are creating or renovating the parking area on your commercial property, the layout must provide your disabled customers and employees with an optimal parking experience. There are many factors that go into a safe and efficient parking area, such as well-marked parking areas for disabled people and safety signs. However, many property managers don’t fully understand the importance of kerbs and wheel stops for drivers with disabilities.
Do Wheel Stops need to be painted?
Concrete parking blocks are extremely heavy and often need to be painted. A 6-foot block weighs approximately 125kgs. Not only does this make concrete parking blocks very expensive to ship, it also makes the product difficult to transport and install. You will need to seek professional advice or labour to avoid injuring yourself.
How is a Wheel Stop different to a Wheel Chock?
Wheel chocks are used for safety and accident prevention. Chocking, also known as blocking, is done to prevent trucks and trailers from unintentionally moving, like rolling or overturning, while workers are loading, unloading, hitching, unhitching or servicing the vehicle.
What is the difference between Rubber, Concrete and Plastic Wheel Stops?
Northpac 100% recycled plastic wheel stops are by far the most economical and safe option for modern day wheel stops. The plastic wheel stops are flexible in that they can be moulded to the concrete or asphalt if it is slightly uneven without warping or cracking, and they do not bend and are a more rigid wheel stop which keeps their shape and stays straight in all weather conditions. The rubber wheel stops are a satisfactory option if the customer prefers rubber, but they do flex and bend when exposed to a lot of sunlight and adverse conditions. Concrete wheel stops are heavy and cumbersome and tend to extend past the cars perimeter which can cause people to trip when leaving their vehicle. They are also more difficult to install and more permanent, therefore making them more difficult to remove when doing an alteration to the car park.
What are the Pros and Cons of using 100% Recycled Plastic Wheel Stops?
These Wheel Stops are flexible enough to contour to the concrete or asphalt surface but not bendy like the cheaper versions which tend to crack, warp or rot. The plastic wheel stops are lightweight yet strong and easily installed by one person into concrete or asphalt with the correct fixing screws or bolts.
The different coloured chevrons on the disabled wheel stops makes them easier to spot by people pulling into a supermarket or shopping centre and looking for a convenient and close disabled parking spot.
