A “bump strike plate” installed at the back of a parking lot is similar to one at the front, it is a raised metal plate that is installed at the base of a parking lot barrier or gate. Its purpose is to prevent vehicles from damaging the barrier or gate by striking it with the rear bumper.
The strike plate is typically made of durable metal and is designed to absorb the impact of a vehicle collision, reducing the damage to both the vehicle and the barrier.
It is also used to make sure that the vehicle will not be able to pass the barrier. This type of bump strike plate is commonly used in parking lots and garages as an extra layer of protection for the barrier, as well as to help guide vehicles
