Park It Parking Curb

The rubber Park-It® parking curb is used to effectively guide cars when pulling into a parking stall. It is profiled at 4" high, safeguarding potential damage to today's low, front end car designs. They are more resistant than concrete or plastic curbs.

 
         
     

Features

Unlike concrete or plastic, which necessitate frequent replacements, recycled rubber car stops are safer and more durable. In-molded highway reflective tape (available in yellow or white) ensures visibility and pedestrian safety. The GNR Park-It® parking curb is constructed of 100% recycled rubber.

The Park It® comes with pre-molded holes and can be shipped with anchoring spikes or lag bolts for installation. They are lightweight (34 lbs. for a 6' car stop) and flexible; conforming to the contour of uneven road surfaces.

Park-It® car stops are available in 22", 3', 4', and 6' lengths and are covered by a 3 year warranty; 1 year on the tape (under normal use).
