Parking Lot Safety with Rubberform

A plethora of features go into creating a functioning parking lot, and many factors must be taken into consideration when thinking about parking lot safety. 

It’s vital to keep in mind the quality of supplies you purchase to ensure pedestrian safety. 

Cutting corners can cost you, which is why you must do everything you can to stay compliant. 

RubberForm offers solutions to issues you may face when considering what supplies you need for your parking lot. For example, it’s crucial to have bollards, which are sturdy posts that aid in avoiding crashing into objects or property.

 

Bollard Bases

Portable Bollard Bases

If you’re installing a bollard, you need a firm and sturdy base for it. We offer the best bollard rubber bases that can withstand high winds and light impact. In the situation where a vehicle does slightly bump into the base, rest assured the vehicle (and person operating it) won’t be damaged. 

 

Sign Bases

Portable Sign Bases

Have you ever seen a parking lot with no signs? We sure haven’t, and we hope we never do. Signs are important in letting you know the parking lot speed limit, where to yield for pedestrians, where to stop if there’s crossing traffic, where the accessible parking spaces are, and more. 

Signs need something to keep them steady. If a sign that informs you to yield for pedestrians tips over, it can potentially cause serious accidents or injuries. Don’t let a windy day be your demise, and use our portable sign base to hold your signs in place. 

Made in the U.S. with 100% American recycled scrap tire crumb rubber, our portable sign base is both durable and aesthetically pleasing. It’s ideal for parking lots because it lets your customers know you care about their safety as well as the environment. Combine this with our recycled aluminum traffic signs to really let your patrons know you’re part of the go-green initiative. 

 

Parking Lot Safety Through Traffic Calming

Speed Humps

In a survey conducted by the National Safety Council, two-thirds of drivers admitted to being distracted while driving in parking lots. Drivers either text, make phone calls, check social media, and even video chat while driving in parking lots.

Of course, pedestrians must be aware of their surroundings, and motorists must take the initiative to be less distracted while driving, but we need to make sure we do our due diligence in designing the best parking lot. Traffic calming materials are a must, such as speed bumps and speed humps; it’s a fool-proof way to control and slow down traffic. 

Speed bumps can be very effective if your parking lot has a lot of distracted drivers. It is an effective measure to enforce the driver to slow down and abide by the parking lot speed limit. 

Speed humps are another effective item for reducing vehicle speeds. If you’re unsure about the difference between the two, make sure you know the difference before making a purchase.

The State of Green Business, 2017

The State of Green Business, 2017
ByJoel Makower. Each year, we step back once a year from the headlines and conferences to assess how, and how much, companies were integrating sustainability into business strategy and operations.
The report, published by GreenBiz Group in partnership with Trucost, provides a global view on sustainable business, from basic emissions to leadership attributes, such as how many stock exchanges around the world require listed companies to disclose environmental data, or the amount of money being divested from fossil fuel company stocks.
Together, these and more than two dozen other metrics help paint a portrait of the evolving sustainable business landscape — how much activity is taking place, and how much more there is to do.

‘The Weather Outside Is Frightful,’ but Indoors?

This season, we’ve seen a lot of rough winter weather in the Buffalo, New York area thanks to what is known as the “lake effect.” And if when you work in an area of the country where snow on the ground is often measured in feet rather than inches, you’re likely to appreciate a job that keep you indoors rather than out in the winter weather.
