Wheel stops are very easy and simple to install in most premises. However, our team can be called in to install any product including wheel stops, to save you the added labour. Therefore, you can be guaranteed that the installation will be to a high standard. Our installation process will differ based on the surface’s material. This is to ensure the wheel stop is correctly installed to withstand various conditions. Before installation, our team of professionals will perform an EHI scan if necessary. Therefore, we can identify physical obstructions such as electrical wiring and pipes. Based on these findings, we can provide recommendations of placement of the stops. Regardless of whether the floor area is asphalt or concrete, we first place the wheel stop where it is required. As a result, our team can ensure measurements and placement is accurate.
If the surface area is asphalt, our professionals will use a hammer drill to drill guide holes for the wheel stop. Once the guide holes have been created, the wheel stop will then be placed in the original position. Therefore, we will be able to ensure that the holes of the wheel stop are aligned. When the holes’ placement is correct, our team will hammer road spikes through the holes and into the surface. Therefore securing the wheel stop in the correct position.
If the surface that the wheel stop is being installed on is concrete however, the installation process will differ slightly. The wheel stop will first be positioned in the correct place. 10mm pilot holes will then be drilled through the wheel stop’s holes. Once the pilot holes are sufficient, the wheel stop is removed from the area, so that our team can continue drilling through the holes. Once the holes are a sufficient depth, the wheel stop will be placed back into the original position. Unlike with asphalt, Dynabolts are used to secure the wheel stop into the concrete surface. Our team will ensure that the bolts are sitting in the correct position within the sunken area, before ensuring the project is completed.
