Plastic driveway wedges

 

As height compensation, our driveway wedges made of plastic are a good choice, but they can also fulfill some other tasks. Their enormous load capacity predestines them for use as heavy-duty wedges. The used plastic used is highly weather resistant, which makes the leveling wedges extremely durable. It has the same material composition that we use in the production of the heavy-duty plates. This makes it possible to use the heavy-duty wedges in combination with the heavy-duty plates.


Fields of application

The driveway wedges can be used in outdoor areas as well as step wedges in vehicle halls with level differences in the parking areas. This is ensured by the enormous temperature resistance. Rust cannot affect the wedges, which can also be used as wheel chocks. In addition, the plastic wedges are UV-resistant and long-lasting. They are therefore a good choice for bridging steps and curbs on industrial premises, for example, and are ideally suited for driving over trucks or industrial trucks. The heavy-duty wedges can also be driven over by forklifts and the heavy-duty rollers of ants or transport collies, which ensures barrier-free transport of goods. Other possible uses include the following:

  • Securing wedges for bulky and heavy loads
  • Overcoming steps in factory halls with forklifts
  • Creation of barrier-free temporary paths
  • Formation of ramps to floor slabs of buildings
  • Ramps for pallet trucks and transport collies
  • Transition from loading platforms to loading ramps
  • Overcoming small obstacles for heavy load transports

 

Weight and load capacity

The driveway wedges made of plastic are lightweight. This benefits handling comfort. Even a wedge with a length of one meter, which bridges a height difference of three centimeters as a 25 centimeter deep coupling, weighs less than four kilograms. The load-bearing capacity of the wedges for comfortable and safe driving up steps is a maximum of 50 tons when used on paved surfaces.

Different dimensions

LuxTek offers different dimensions in width, depth and height. One meter standard width is not enough for you? You can order the wedges with larger widths as custom-made. Alternatively, you can also get smaller versions with a width starting from 20 centimeters. This would be interesting if you want to equip your entire fleet of vehicles with the plastic wedges that can optionally be used as driveway curb ramps and brake wedges (brake stops).

Individualized available

LuxTek offers several variants of customization of the plastic wedges. This starts with the variations in size. For optimum handling on the vehicle, the wedges come with milled-in handles. As additional features, for example, grooves are available for improved grip when driving over without barriers, as well as the integration of reflectors. So that you can easily recognize your compensation wedges, maneuvering aids and safety wedges, we can personalize your wedges: on request, simple logos or names can be milled into them – just like into our plates.

 

Transport, storage and assembly

A big plus is the fact that you can store the plastic wedges indoors and outdoors. Storage is possible in both horizontal and vertical orientation. For transport to the place of use, the leveling wedges are welcome (well secured) on the open loading area of a pickup truck or truck. Alternatively, you are welcome to stack them in wooden boxes or commercially available mesh boxes. There is no question of assembly effort with the heavy-duty wedges. The only effort required before use is to place the drive-up wedges in front of the step and in front of and behind the drive wheels of the vehicles to be secured.

 

Are driveway wedges an investment?

A good truck tire can easily cost several hundred euros. Driving over steps, edges and curbs causes punctual loads. They can destroy even a good quality truck tire to such an extent that repair is not possible. Even the rims are at risk in the event of a tire rupture due to the hard impact on edges. In the case of a fully loaded truck, an axle breakage can even be imminent. Due to the necessary wheel change or even an axle breakage, downtimes occur which prevent you from meeting your agreed delivery dates. Often, high contractual penalties are incurred for such delays. If you want to avoid these costs, you should equip your entire fleet with the mobile-use plastic wheel alignment wedges.

Conclusion: Our leveling wedges are a small investment that will save you high repair and maintenance costs. In addition, they can be used very universally both indoors and outdoors, as well as for securing loads. Moreover, you can order the plastic wedges in individual sizes. They reduce the risk of transport damage because there are no jerky movements when driving over steps with transport collies or forklifts.
