Speed bumps, as the name would indicate, are used for stopping cars. You may find them in a parking lot or parking garage. They are a physical barrier to moving forward with the car. They can help indicate to a driver that he has pulled forward far enough and can park there. Car Stops can also help protect the establishment using them from any wayward cars. If they are placed in front of the establishment, especially in front of glass doors and windows, they can help keep cars from continuing forward and crashing into the store. They can also help protect cars in parking garages from pulling forward into the wall. By using the car stops in your parking spaces, you can keep your customers from doing potentially expensive damage to their car.
Speed bumps are available in different lengths and different colors. Some of them are designed to be used for different sized vehicles. Some of the color options are gray, yellow and blue. The yellow ones are highly visible, and the blue ones can be used to indicate handicapped parking. They are made out of different materials. There are some made out of concrete and there are some made from 100% recycled materials. Concrete car stops can be dry-cast or wet-cast. Dry-cast concrete car stops tend to be hardier than the wet-cast ones. Recycled plastic car stops help eliminate some of the concerns and problems faced by concrete car stops, like crumbling, and reinforcement bar exposure. The recycled plastic car stops are a solid color, and won't need to be painted. They are basically maintenance-free and can withstand and resist oils and chemicals. Recycled plastic speed bumps weigh significantly less than their concrete counterparts, and that can be an advantage in both shipping and installation. The lighter weight can make more shipping options available that wouldn't be available for the concrete ones. It can also decrease your shipping costs. Lighter weight car stops makes for easier installation, as well.
You could even choose to use car stops in a residential setting. Maybe every time you pull the car into the garage you bump into the work bench at the rear of the garage. Maybe you've tried one of those positioning balls hanging from the garage ceiling, but it hasn't worked well for you. Speed bumps could be the solution for you. You can install them in the garage and then never have to worry about pulling too far forward into the garage, and having to climb out, carefully maneuvering around the car. It can even help with the problem of not pulling far enough into the garage, and closing the garage door on the back of your car. Car stops could be the solution to your parking problems.
Speed bumps can be used for commercial and residential purposes. They can help protect cars as well as homes and stores from damage. They help situate the cars where they belong in the parking spaces, and can protect from costly expenses for repairs.
