What is the difference between Concrete vs. Rubber Wheel Stops?
The difference between rubber wheel stops and concrete wheel stops is that rubber stops are much more durable, easier to install, longer lasting and less damaging to cars. They do not require heavy lift equipment to install and are more cost effective in the long term due to the lack of cracking/maintenance issues.
Do these wheel stops work for garages?

Reasons You Should Choose Rubber 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, curbs, sidewalks, and landscape from damage. These products are known as wheel stops as well as car stops, parking curbs, parking bumpers, parking blocks, and many other names. Before recycled rubber 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 Rubber Wheel Stops.
For placing concrete wheel stops in the right position, the most recommended process has always been using a forklift, Bobcat, or a front loader. Installation usually required 2 or more people to move them into their permanent location. RubberForm Wheel Stops only weigh 38 lbs and can be easily unloaded, placed, and installed by only one person. Should a Rubber Wheel Stop slip and fall off the pallet, it will not crack, chip, break or injure the person moving it. The same cannot be said about concrete.
RubberForm Wheel Stops are made from 100% consumer recycled scrap tire rubber, preventing 4 tires from ending up in a landfill or on a stockpile. Concrete, on the other hand, is not recyclable and more prone to damage. If concrete becomes damaged, it must be replaced and thrown out while RubberForm wheel stops are made from used tires from consumers' cars and offer a product lifetime warranty. They offer more visibility because they are molded in plastic, colored polygons. Our RubberForm wheel stops will never break or crack if they are hit by a vehicle.
Have You Ever Wondered Where Your Used Tires End Up?
Due to improved technology, today's tires are on the road for a much longer period of time than in the past. That said, the increase of cars on the road has increased enormously along with the number of miles driven yearly.
A report published by the Rubber Manufacturers Association revealed that one scrap tire is tossed by every adult person in the United States on a yearly basis. So, where do these tires end up after being tossed? The RMA analyzed scrap tire management in the United States. In 2007, they published a report finding that more scrap tires were consumed in end-use markets than any other time before. To be more accurate, that adds up to 89.3% and includes tire-derived fuel in which approximately 54% of scrap tires generated were burned for further use, which includes civil engineering, ground rubber applications, and smaller markets.
Other reports have shown that aside from all the recycling efforts, many scrape tier will still end up in landfills each year. By the end of 2007, approximately 594 thousand tons of scrap tires were in landfills in the United States. That number exceeds the 477 thousand tons that were in landfills in 2005. That shows an incredible increase in scrap tires in landfills in just barely 2 years.
By the end of 2007, it was estimated that approximately 128.36 million scrap tires were placed on stockpiles in the United States. Stockpiles are a huge problem and growing concern including a very unpleasant look. Rainwater is constantly trapped in these tires which leads to an enormous infestation of mosquitoes that transmit infectious diseases. Another major concern, many of these stockpiles catch on fire These fires can last for months on end, costing millions of dollars to put out, and, in many cases, people have to be evacuated from their neighborhoods. When these scrap tires are on fire, they cause significant environmental harm from toxic, soot fall-out, and the run-off of oil and water, poisoning everything around them. Burning tires also release many harmful irritants and potentially carcinogenic compounds into the atmosphere.
Many experts no longer believe “If a stockpile catches on fire” but “When will a stockpile catch on fire”!
There is a dire need for more and more manufacturers to use recyclable rubber in their products to cut back on deadly, dangerous landfills and stockpiles. The stats alone should give everyone more concern and incentive to purchase U.S products made from recycled products. Before you decide to purchase products at a lower price from off-shore manufacturers, think about the state you live in and ask yourself what you can do to help clean up our environment and make our country an even better place to live. We have an enormous problem with scrap tires being thrown in landfills and stockpiles. Rubber can be recycled at little cost and used for so many durable, long-lasting products such as our RubberForm Wheel Stops!
