Rubber Wheel Guard
A rubber wheel guard is vital to any well-maintained car parking in any establishment. The purpose of a wheel guard is to guide the driver when maneuvering in a parking space and avoid accidents with other vehicles or properties. In recent years the wheel guard has been made of concrete, and it’s very durable, especially when the concrete guard is well made. However, as time goes on, it depreciates until you see a crack and finally breaks down. Its deterioration accelerates when the parked vehicle is too heavy or overloaded, like a truck. The rubber and concrete wheel guard have the same functionality, but the cost-to-performance ratio sets them apart. The rubber type lasts longer because of its elasticity and other high-grade properties that help it be more durable. When it comes to appearance, the rubber type has a smooth surface to protect the vehicle, especially when the car is lowered to avoid severe scratches.
While concrete or asphalt wheel stops are the most common rubber wheel guard, rubber wheel stops offer several advantages.
- They are softer and more forgiving than concrete, which means they are less likely to damage vehicles.
- They are also more effective at absorbing impact, which helps to prevent tire blowouts and other damage that can occur when a vehicle hits a hard object.
- In addition, rubber wheel stops are less likely to break or crack over time, making them a more durable option for parking areas.

Installation of Wheel Guard
Most parking lots have wheel guards to protect the concrete from car damage. Wheel guards are usually made of rubber and are easy to install. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to install rubber wheel guards on a parking lot:
1. Measure the width of the parking space and cut the rubber wheel guard to size. Leave enough space for the car to park without hitting the guard.
2. Place the wheel guard in the desired location and use a hammer to secure it. Make sure that the guard is level before moving on.
3. Once the guard is secured, use a drill to attach it to the ground with screws. Make sure to use screws that are long enough to go through the thickness of the guard and into the ground beneath it.
4. If you have a large parking lot and want to install wheel guards in several locations, use a metal cutter to create a template. Place the template on the ground and drill holes at each corner.
5. Place your wheel guard over the template and secure it with screws.
