Wheel Chocks Market: Introduction
Wheel chocks also known as wheel blocks or wheel stops, are the wedges of durable material which is placed closely against a vehicle's wheels to avoid the accidental movement. In addition to set the brakes the wheel chocks are positioned for safety. To enhance the grip from the ground the bottommost surface is sometimes coated with rubber. Wheel Chock is done to prevent trucks and trailers from unintentional movement or rolling while the workers are loading, unloading, unhitching, hitching or servicing the vehicle. Off road chocks can be used in construction and airplanes use wheel chocks to keep them moving from the parked spot.
A wheel clock provides an opposite angle by countering the slope, which serves as a barrier and keep the wheel in place. The parking brakes are generally on the rear wheels of the automobiles. The rear axle is hoisted off the surface with parking brake set, leading the vehicle to roll on the front wheels and fall. Chocking the front wheels avoids this accident. To use the wheel chocks must be designated to match the size of the tires on the vehicle and should be used in pairs, as the size of the tire is designed to be proportional to the vehicles weight and size.
The main factors that affect the performance of the wheel chocks are the angle of the road surface also identified as slope or grade, the size of the wheel chock compared to the wheel height and the friction of the road surface or the surface slip, as the wheel chocks may slip down.
Wheel Chocks Market: Dynamics
The usage of new advanced materials of rubber and plastic has improved the lifespan of the wheel chocks which has amplified their efficacy and the strength of the wheel chocks. This has led to more inventive initiatives from the manufacturers in the market to develop more effective and easy to use product which will lead this to be a protruding driver. Aside from the efficiency, all-weather construction solid rubber wheel chocks makes them highly durable and suitable for different types of climate conditions and the plastic material wheel chocks makes them simple and easy to use with high efficiency.
The modern day consumer usage of transportation and an increase in the population and has created a need leading to the overall global growth of the transportation sector which has amplified the manufacturing of the wheel chocks market.
One of the biggest flaw of the wheel chocks made of the rubber is their strong smell which turns out to be a big turn off for the consumers and they find it difficult in the initial days of the use.
