When considering adding parking lot bumpers / wheel stops to your lot you also have to think of the pedestrians walking across the lot after exiting their vehicles.
Poorly installed bumpers can create a trip hazard and so every consideration should be given to their location. With years of parking lot experience we are fully qualified to advise you on the best ways to reduce the risk of an accident.
Car stops, otherwise known as wheel stops or parking blocks, are simple blocking mechanisms that are meant to stop a vehicle from rolling forward when parked in a certain area. Car stops are similar to speed bumps in the way that they are made, but they are usually taller and they have steeper sides. Speed bumps are meant to be driven over, but car stops are meant to actually prevent a car from moving. Car stops come in recycled plastic, rubber, or concrete.

The use of signage to inform your customers is vital to a safe experience while visiting your property. Not only is proper signage required in most jurisdictions, it is commonplace to direct your customers to where they need to go.
A bollard is a short post designed to guide traffic and protect from vehicle intrusions. Bollards can be manufactured and installed to withstand significant vehicle impacts, but they can also be used as visual barriers. Many bollards also contribute decorative elements to complement building and landscape designs. Ask us about your bollard options!
Rubber speed bumps,
serve many purposes and James Kurpiel Inc.
can handle the design as well as the installation of these installed devices. In most cases rubber speed bumps and berms
are built-in parking lots as a deterrent to speeding cars.
They can be very effective at slowing traffic in both homeowners associations, parking lots, and private drives.
For some of our customers rubber speed bumps are too temporary. They need something that will last a very long time. That is when we recommend asphalt speed bumps, or concrete speed bumps. These are the heavy duty alternatives to the less costly rubber alternative. Some customers will even use the rubber speed bumps as a test first before taking the chance of installing something more permanent. Remember that newly installed speed bumps sometimes have unforeseen consequences. Always speak with an engineer or parking lot professional before implementing speed bump installations
A well maintained and properly marked parking lot is essential for any business. Just as with any type of signage, your parking lot is an extension of the perception people have of your business as a whole. It should be well marked and almost inviting in a way as deemed safe to utilize by your customers and employees. A proper appearance boosts overall customer confidence in safety and thereby boosting revenue.
