Parking Supplies That Improve Lot Safety and Your Customer’s Overall Shopping Experience
Here you can learn about some parking supplies that are geared towards safety. Improving safety improves your customer’s experience. They will be happier to shop in your store and return to it on a regular basis. These products also help to protect your assets and reduce the need for costly repairs to other structures.
Rubber Speed Bumps & Humps
Speed bumps made out of concrete or asphalt can annoy drivers, even though they enhance safety. The rubber bumps and humps can slow traffic without causing annoyance. They can be placed near pedestrian crossing or in other areas of the lot where drivers tend to drive at higher speeds than they should.
Humps are lower than bumps. They still cause traffic to slow down, but they don’t really impede traffic flow. They are best used in areas where you want to keep the traffic moving, just at a reasonable speed.
Rubber curbs are relatively new parking supplies. They can be used to prevent cars from running into concrete curbs, causing damage to the curb and the vehicle. They can also be used in areas where no other barrier is present.
For example, they can be used at the fronts of spaces to prevent vehicles from taking up more than one space. This also keeps vehicles from driving through spaces, which enhances safety in the lot. They are designed to be high enough to discourage drivers from driving over them, but low enough to so as not to cause damage to vehicles with low front ends.
You may have bollards or poles in various places around your lot. They are often used to prevent traffic from blocking doors and to protect assets such as ATM machines from being stolen.
Maintenance is the big issue for bollards. They must be repainted regularly in order to maintain appearance and visibility. Rubber bollard covers are parking supplies that protect the poles and reduce the maintenance. They will never need to be painted and the better ones are resistant to fading. You can be confident they will last for years to come.
Corner and Wall Guards
Corner and wall guards are mainly used in multi-level lots and around loading docks. They protect walls and corners while also protecting customers’ vehicles from nasty scratches that can occur if a door hits a concrete wall.
These may not be all of the parking supplies you need, but it is a pretty impressive list of the safety products currently available for businesses and lot owners.
