Parking Stops & Blocks

Parking stops can be used to position & guide vehicles as they park, preventing damage to the vehicle and its surroundings. Our wide selection of stops and blocks can be used in parking lots, garages, driveways, and more for assistance in parking cars, trucks, buses, and motorcycles.

Concrete Parking Stops

Concrete stops are affordable and heavy, however their weight can make them quite expensive to ship and difficult to install. If they're painted, they need regular touch-ups to keep them looking fresh. Their lifespan is about 50 years, depending on the climate and how well they are maintained. As they age, pieces can dislodge and become safety hazards.

Their color will never require painting, and they won't crack and chip like concrete. They are also resistant to the negative effects of gas, oil, salt, sunlight, and other harmful chemicals.

Benefits and Drawbacks: Lightweight, extremely durable, won't cause damage to a vehicle on impact, not ideal for gravel or uneven asphalt surface, most expensive parking stop type.

Available Colors

  • Solid Yellow: Perfect for standing out in dark or snow-covered parking lots.
  • Solid Gray: Doesn't stand out as it looks like raw concrete.
  • Solid White: Matches parking lot lines, but are best for areas that do not get a lot of snow.
  • Accessibility Blue: Intended to denote handicapped parking spaces
  • Black with Reflective White or Yellow Stripes: Easier to see at night or in low-visibility weather.
  • Accessibility Blue with Reflective White Stripes: Intended to denote parking spaces reserved for the handicapped, and the reflective stripes make them easier to see at night or in low-visibility weather.

Available Sizes

Parking stops come in several standard sizes. Two-foot stops are best used to provide guidance for buses and trucks while parking. Three and four-foot stops are perfect for guiding cars at home, in driveways and garages, or in small parking lots. Six-foot stops are recommended for commercial parking lots, and eight-foot stops are wide enough to match commercial truck axles. If you need longer lengths, place parking stops end to end to create custom lengths, or for use as bike and pedestrian lane protectors in high-traffic areas.

Installation Hardware

While most parking stops will come with installation hardware, it's important to know which kind of hardware is appropriate to use on your surface. For installation on asphalt, use galvanized steel spikes or lag bolts. For installation on concrete, use lag bolts or large diameter Tapcon concrete anchors.

By designating parking spots and serving as a guide for cars, these stops are an essential product to increase parking lot safety. When the correct material, color, size, and hardware are chosen, these stops will be a huge asset to anyone looking to make their parking lot safer.
