Spring is coming and it's time to start thinking about freshening up your spaces. This includes parking spaces!
If your padding protection has started falling apart, it is not serving it's purpose anymore. So, why hold on to it? Out with the old, crumbling padding and order some NEW padding that will actually do the job! Not only will it look better, but, cushioned vinyl custom padding from Parking Padding Solutions will help protect vehicles from minor damage due to close contact with columns and also reduce the cost of any claims that may be brought to the parking facility for damage that occurs.
‘Tis the holiday season, we are all rushing around to get things done. However, when exiting a parking facility, we all have to slow down to let the gate arm go up and let us out! This is the perfect opportunity for advertising messages on the gate arms... because EVERY vehicle that is in your parking facility will see the message!
Parking Padding Solutions has a way you can add non-permanent advertising messages to your existing gate arms. How, you ask? With Gate Arm Padding Plus+! This is a custom-made pad for your gate arms with a clear vinyl sleeve, or pocket, that is sewn into the front of the pad. The sleeve fits a 3” X 36” removable sign. Signs can be made by PPS or any print shop that is convenient to you.
Imagine being able to change out messages to your customers that create brand awareness of the parking facility, promote special events in the area, or even rent out the space to other businesses for extra revenue! Messages on gate arms are seen by a captive audience that will surely be influenced by your well-placed ad.

Inevitably, every parking garage will have an odd structure that needs to be protected from vehicles or pedestrians. The best time to add protective padding to these structures is BEFORE they get struck 😊. Being hesitant to start a project like this is completely understandable; Where do you start? How do you measure? Who can help? Ugh!
That’s where Parking Padding Solutions can step in! We make the process as easy as possible. A client in Sherman Oaks, CA had this exact situation in their parking garage. They had a custom solution designed, built, and installed in a matter of weeks!
We worked together to come up with a design. In this case, the client provided measurements directly on a picture (good job!) to communicate clear requirements. Parking Padding Solutions sent back a mock-up design of what could be built.
The end result was a custom-fit pad, in the color and thickness requested by the client, that was easily installed in the parking garage. Being proactive never looked so good!
Oh, I love drive thru’s! Getting a quick caffeine fix, without leaving my car, is great. What I don’t like is when I miss a tight turn driving to the drive-up window and scratch my car against a bollard post. I know, I know, the bollards are there to protect buildings and structures from people that miss those narrow turns. But, they aren’t doing anything for my cars paint job!
One way proprietors of drive thru’s (or any structures, for that matter) can help protect customer vehicles and structures from expensive damage is by installing Bollard Post Covers. These protective sleeves easily fit over existing posts. They are made using a flexible 1/8" thick High Density Polyethylene that is designed to absorb impact. In addition to protecting vehicles and structures, they save time and costs by eliminating scraping those rusty posts and constant repainting of the posts. Custom colors, symbols, and company logos are available for those interested in additional branding of the location.
So it seems that either I need to improve my driving skills or look for the drive thru’s that are using Bollard Post Covers… Either way, Bollard Post Covers offer maintenance-free bollard protection. And protecting both vehicles and structures from expensive damage makes everyone happy!
Chicago, along with the rest of the country, is finally thawing out after the deep freeze of a winter we went through. With the snow melting away, we are seeing a lot of chipped and crumbling paint on light pole bases in parking lots. What is there to do about this situation? Are you painting AGAIN?? How about avoiding the paint can and doing something with longer term benefits?
Poletector 360 Light Pole Base Guard can enhance the appearance of your parking lot, increase visibility of light pole bases, and protect vehicles WITHOUT painting! Poletector 360 can also help you to build a brand. The cover can be customized with logos or lettering for your business. This enhances the appearance of any parking lot. The increased visibility of light pole bases in your parking lot will contribute to far less door dings for your customers, as well.
So, drop that paint can and order yourself some Poletectors 😊
This past week I had the honor to attend the Parking Industry Expo in Chicago. It was a great conference, where I met some amazing people and learned about all the latest developments in the parking industry. The conference gave me the opportunity to do one of my favorite things, which is to talk “parking” all week!
Technology advancements in the parking industry was a constant theme. Many of these technologies are meant to make parking garages easier and safer to use. Parking Padding Solutions fits right into this theme, by making parking garages safer and easier to use. Our products are ideal for any area of a parking facility that can be struck by automobiles. The added protection can help protect vehicles from minor damage due to close contact with columns or walls. And for ease of use, any product can be made to include signage!
