When you are creating a new parking lot design for your commercial building, you will want to make sure that the layout of your parking lot provides your clients and employees with a safe and orderly parking experience. Premier Paving and Sealcoat can work with you to create the perfect parking lot for your commercial space. As you are paving your parking lot, you might want to consider incorporating wheel stops into your design. Here are three reasons why wheel stops should be considered when creating a new parking lot.
Prevent Fender Benders:One of the main purposes of wheel stops is to make sure that drivers do not pull too far into your parking spaces. By physically obstructing a car’s wheels, wheel stops are able to prevent drivers from pulling through a parking space or attempting other risky maneuvers. After you have completed your wheel stop installation, you may notice that the number of fender benders in your parking lot decreases noticeably.
Help Control Traffic: If you run a successful commercial business, there is a good chance that your parking lot is crowded during peak hours of the day. To prevent traffic jams and other incidents in your parking lot, it is a good idea to install wheel stops. Wheel stops will help to guide the flow of traffic, and will prevent drivers from pulling into an oncoming lane or driving against a one-way aisle.
Improve Physical Appearance: Installing wheel stops is one great way to spruce up the overall look of your parking lot. When you work with a paving contractor to choose new wheel stops for your parking lot, you will be able to pick out materials and patterns that look great with your overall lot design. As a customer pulls into your parking lot for the very first time, he or she is sure to be impressed with the orderly look that is provided by your neat rows of wheel stops and pavement stripes.
