Wheel chocks are wedge-shaped materials mostly coated with rubber
that are fixed against the wheels of a car to prevent it from moving accidentally. Wheel chocks are often used in twos and are fixed after the brakes have been set. Chocks are commonly used in aircraft, cars, and trains to prevent slip wheel movement. Parking chocks are very common and are designed as small barriers that prevent erroneous parking, which could bar other drivers and preventing them from parking or pulling off. They are usually made of sturdy material such as concrete, designed as spaced or continuous vertical or horizontal bars. Chocks are designed for different sizes of wheels to be able to provide the appropriate amount of barrier force against a wheel. The overall performance of a wheel chock against the car's wheels depend on three main factors which are, the size ratio of the wheel chock size to the height of the car wheel, the road friction, and the slope of the road.We offer a wide selection of wheel chocks from various manufacturers at MRO Supply.
