Parking Stops: Rubber vs. Concrete

Concrete parking stops lack the durability of rubberConcrete and rubber are the two most common substances from which parking stops are manufactured, and each presents unique advantages. Here at Monster, we manufacture our parking stops from premium recycled rubber, which creates a better overall product, albeit at a slightly higher cost. The cost aspect is the largest advantage that concrete parking stops offer: they are an extremely bottom line driven solution. However, it is important to keep in mind that in this case, you get what you pay for. Concrete lacks the durability of rubber, particularly in areas that are prone to heavy precipitation and freezing weather. When moisture penetrates tiny cracks in the concrete, it is able to freeze and expand, which causes additional damage and greatly reduces the lifespan of concrete parking curbs.

Concrete parking stops lack aesthetic appeal

However, the problems with concrete products go further than simply a short lifespan. For many business owners, their parking lots are the first areas that customers experience. Because concrete parking stops are prone to cracking and crumbling, this can lead to an extremely unappealing parking lot. Not to mention the color or lack thereof. Even if a business owner paints their parking stops to create a better overall aesthetic for their business, there is still a risk of chipped or faded paint, and the parking curbs will have to be periodically retouched to keep their paint looking attractive and vibrant.

Rubber parking stops are superior to concrete parking stops

Monster rubber parking curbs are the superior solution

These problems are issues that simply don’t exist with Monster rubber parking stops. Our rubber is premium grade, which means it won’t chip, crack, or crumble like concrete. We’re so confident of their durability that we offer a three-year warranty on the product. We also offer parking stops in several colors, including black (with white or yellow tape), blue, and terracotta, ensuring that you’ll be able to customize your parking lot to match the aesthetic of your business.

Another major advantage of Monster parking curbs is the weight. Rubber typically isn’t thought of as a “light” material but compared to concrete, it is substantially easier to transport. While concrete parking curbs can weigh over 200 lbs., Monster premium rubber parking stops weigh in at just 34 lbs., a fraction of the weight of concrete. This means installation can be a much quicker, and therefore less expensive, process. Should modifications to parking alignments be necessary, Monster parking stops can easily be moved. Additionally, this portability makes them great for temporary usage, at festivals or events for example.

Like all of our products, Monster parking stops are a premium solution. They are a bit more expensive than concrete competitors but offer a wide array of benefits and advantages. For more information about our parking curbs, click here. To view a brochure, click here.

Environmental Impact of Recycled Rubber Parking Stops

Our parking stops are made from recycled rubberA core part of our company mission statement “A dynamic, global team dedicated to protecting people, assets, and the environment,” is protecting the environment. While many of our products are designed to do exactly this, it’s also a broader company philosophy that we embrace. One example of this is the manufacturing process behind our rubber parking stops. We receive raw, recycled rubber from a variety of sources, including a local Bridgestone Tire factory. Using our proprietary polyurethane binder to hold the mixture together, we then create the premium, high-grade rubber that we mold into our parking stops. Between our two plants, we recycle an average of 1 million pounds of rubber per month. However considering that the average tire weighs between 14 and 16 lbs., and 300 million are scrapped per year, 1 million pounds is only a drop in the bucket.

Recycling tires helps reduce the health and environmental risks they pose

Tires present a unique environmental challenge because they are not biodegradable. In addition taking up large amounts of space in landfills, they also create other unfortunate health risks. It’s a little-known fact that tires can be breeding grounds for mosquitos, especially in tropical climates. Per a special report by the Tire and Rubber Recycling Advisory Council, “Tires are often targeted as the prime candidates for mosquito breeding because it is difficult to remove water from them, and they retain heat, which further exacerbates the conditions that attract mosquitos.” In areas where diseases such as malaria and West Nile Virus are common, scrap tires can be a deadly hazard. Additionally, should a tire scrapyard catch fire, it is impossible to extinguish and will produce acid smoke harmful to both humans and the environment.

Recycled rubber is a great resource for manufacturing quality products

The good news, however, is that tires are 100% recyclable. Per ReRubber.com, “The high quality of steel and rubber found in tires are easily reintegrated into the manufacturing process at very minimal or no change to existing manufacturing processes.” There are many ways to use recycled rubber; it is often found in “rubber mulch,” a product used on playground surfaces, athletic facilities, and gardens. Additionally, recycled rubber can be used for various automotive and infrastructural sealants, and, of course, our premium rubber parking stops.

Utilizing recycled rubber is just one of the many ways we here at Checkers seek to protect the environment. While the issue of scrap tires littering landfills remains a large problem that must be addressed, we are proud to play a small part in the solution. We are also proud to provide high-quality parking stops to the parking and facility maintenance industries.

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:

 

We manufacture our rubber products from recycled rubber5. 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.

 

Our parking curbs are flexible and durable4. 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.

 

Many colors are available for our parking stops3. 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.

 

Quick and easy installation is a key benefit of our parking curbs2. 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.

 

Rubber parking stop benefits include excellent durability1. 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.
