Whether we like to admit it or not, there are always some drivers who fail to put on their car's hand brake. This means that they park and leave the vehicle without limiting their ability to roll. Without precautionary measures, this means that one of these vehicles can start moving, with the risk of serious injury. Of course, there is also a chance that a hand brake may be defective, making it useless. We just need to look at Anton Yelkin's latest death, which was crushed by his own car when the hand brake failed to properly engage. While many of us would be concerned about security, if you own a property with private parking, there is also the possibility of liability if such an event occurs. For this reason, many property owners are considering installing wheel stops.
Are not concrete curbs enough?
Many assume that a concrete crane would be sufficient to prevent damage to property or damage in the event of a hand brake not being applied or failing. But as some car owners have found, a concrete beam does not provide enough protection. This means that there is not only a risk of physical damage to cars and property, but also the possibility of legal damage. Fortunately, wheel stops can help prevent this. A wheel stop can be installed to prevent this risk.
According to AS2890.1, 20014, when installing wheel stops, the Australian standard must meet the specification of the physical dimensions mandated. The stop needs an average of 90-100 millimeters in height with an approximate width of 1650 millimeters. These dimensions can not only provide protection against property damage, but it can also help prevent damage to the vehicle itself.
The reasons for installing the wheel stop:
If you are still unsure how to install wheel stops in specified spaces, be aware that these stops can control the overhang that may be dangerous to pedestrians. With one stop in place, a grant for pedestrians is created to go on. Stop can also inhibit vehicles from invading the parking lot opposite. This can prevent vehicles from interlocking when you park and save space if your parking spaces are limited.
Eliminating all potential for vehicle damage is not possible, as accidents will happen. But with the right safety equipment, you can minimize the risk of accidents occurring on your property. This can not only reduce your responsibility, but it can help you avoid the stress and frustration of dealing with an angry employee or customer who has suffered damage to their precious vehicles.
