The stops in the parking lots are essential, and they delimit spaces, help to park correctly. They are also used to prevent driving at high speeds through the parking lot corridors and prevent possible accidents.
In parking stops, we generally find two main types of buffers, concrete, and plastic.
Previously, concrete ones were the most common, and today it is still common to find them in some parking lots. However, and they wear out quickly and become difficult to see in low light conditions because they lose their yellow color as the light passes. When they lose this color, they become gray and complicated to see. This is a significant disadvantage that can even lead to vehicle damage when hitting the stop.
Another disadvantage of parking stops made of concrete or cement is the danger factor represented by the materials with which they are made, this for the pedestrian or parking user, since many of these stops have a rod structure, which when the top is already worn, and the cement or concrete detaches, the rod is exposed, which can cause damage as much as the pedestrian when passing or walking through the place and not noticing this damage to the top.
Apart from causing damage to people and the vehicles themselves, they can damage the rims or, where appropriate, directly to the bodywork.
