Parking Lot Accessories
A well-organized parking lot can help improve traffic flow and safety for your visitors. Installing the right parking lot accessories is crucial in order to regulate speeds, direct traffic, and help drivers to stay clear of pedestrians. Having parking lot safety and regulatory accessories in your parking lot is also a great way to emphasize your commitment to safety to your visitors. Here are some of the parking lot accessories that Southern Asphalt Engineering can install for your business:
Rubber speed bumps and humps
Speed bumps are one of the most effective ways of reducing speeds in your parking lot. Unlike asphalt speed bumps, rubber speed bumps and humps are easily installed on pre-existing surfaces, making it a great option for parking lots.
Speed humps tend to be lower to the ground and longer travel distance than speed bumps, making them a gentler option for 10–15 mph speed zones. The point of speed bumps and humps are to safely reduce a cars’ speed. If your parking lot has areas where drivers will need to slow down significantly, for instance near pedestrian crosswalks, then rubber speed bumps may be a better option.
Rubber or plastic wheel stops
Parking lots without wheel stops mean cars can either back into or out of the same spot, increasing the chances of a collision or pedestrian accidents. Installing parking stops can help regulate traffic in parking lots, creating a predictable and safe flow of cars backing in and out of spots. Both rubber and plastic wheel stops can be made from recycled materials, are lightweight, and relatively easy to install. Reflective tape along the sides of wheel stops helps to ensure visibility at night. Depending on your specific application, we offer steel pin placement, lag nut installation, and epoxy when installing parking stops.
Traffic delineators help to guide traffic into a specific lane and help to prevent accidents from cars merging lanes. We offer delineators of varying heights and colors, depending on what works best for your commercial space. All traffic delineators come with reflective sheeting to improve visibility and safety. They’re also built to withstand vehicular impacts, making them a durable option.
Traffic mirrors are a simple and cost-effective way to increase visibility for drivers and pedestrians in your parking lot. They help parking lot visitors see around obstacles, and help security personnel to survey a wide area. The circular convex shape reflects a wide angle image at a diminished size to extend a field of view.
Steel bollards are heavy-duty, concrete-filled posts that are installed in commercial areas to allow pedestrian traffic and block vehicles. Once the bollards have been filled with concrete, they can be painted or covered with a decorative sleeve for night time visibility.
