Top Five Benefits of Rubber Parking Stops  
Our Monster rubber parking stops are designed to protect parking structures, vehicles, and pedestrians. They are manufactured from premium, recycled rubber. Rubber parking stop benefits are plentiful, especially compared with concrete options. Take a look at the top five benefits of rubber parking stops below:

5. Environmentally Friendly
Our parking stops are manufactured from recycled rubber from a variety of sources. When it reaches us, it’s already ground down into its raw form, and we mold it into our Monster parking stops, as well as several other rubber parking lot solutions. We recycle an average of 1 million pounds of rubber each month, which is approximately equal to 45,500 passenger vehicle tires. If you’re like us, and you believe in protecting the environment, purchasing recycled rubber products such as our parking stop is a great way to affirm that commitment.

4. Flexibility
In the perfect world, all parking lots would be perfectly smooth and flat. Sadly, we don’t live in a perfect world and often bumps, cracks, and other damage can create uneven surfaces. The great thing about our rubber parking stops is that their flexible rubber construction allows them to contour to the surface on which they are placed. If you are mounting them on a surface that isn’t perfectly level, there is no need to worry, they will still serve their purpose and look great doing it. While concrete parking stops may be less expensive, they are also rigid and have no flex to them, which makes them more difficult to mount and more susceptible to damage.

3. Aesthetically pleasing
If you opt for concrete parking stops, the only way to inject any sort of color is to paint them. Not only is this a time-consuming and messy process, but you also need to worry about the paint fading, and matching paint colors if you add more parking stops in the future. Monster parking stops are made with colored rubber, ensuring that they will never fade, and will always make your property look its best. They are currently available in black, blue, and terracotta, with white or yellow tape available.

2. Easy to Install
Our largest parking stop measures six feet in length and weighs a mere 34 lbs. Compared to concrete parking stops, which can weigh hundreds of pounds, our products are easy to position and install, even with just one person. This greatly reduces installation costs, as additional equipment is not necessary, and work crews can be much smaller while still accomplishing the same goal. The portability of our parking stops makes them great for temporary applications as well since they can be quickly deployed and collected after they are no longer necessary.

1. Durability
While concrete parking stops have a tendency to chip and crack, our rubber products will not. Additionally, all of our rubber parking stops feature reflective tape that is actually molded into the product. This prevents the reflective tape from peeling or falling off, a problem seen in some bottom-line driven products. Rubber parking stop benefits also include a resistance to temperature and weather changes that isn’t seen in concrete competitors. Similar to concrete roads, moisture can penetrate into cracks in imperfections in the concrete, and then when temperatures drop below freezing, the water expands and causes further damage to the product. This is avoided when you choose a premium rubber solution, such as a Monster parking stop, as they are great for any climate or weather.
