Striping & Markings: the importance of keeping your parking lot visible, safe and compliant

Do you want to rise above the competition even higher? Nothing makes your business stand out better than its curb appeal, which creates a safe and customer-friendly environment. That gives a good peace of mind to every visitor and potential buyer – the supervisor here emphasizes safety and serviceability. And almost everyone passing by will be impressed by each single point and every detail bearing the very special sign of yours.

No doubt, your parking lot or driveway are the first thing seen by the public. And it must look spick-and-span – from effective layout and paving, to quality striping and contrasting signs. Fairly good and visible traffic painting makes your parking lot full of advantages. While improving the flow of traffic itself, having good markings will bring order and safety to every step and wheel. Obviously, all of your patrons expect your lot to be easy to navigate. And that means a true perfectionism in every item, such as well-marked crosswalks, parking stalls, arrows, stop bars, pickup and boarding areas, handicapped signs, loading zones, etc.

Striping and markings are no exception – both of them are far more than the finishing touches. That’s why your parking lot striping and markings should be clear, resistant, and capable of enduring even harsh weather conditions. In addition, proper markings should be compliant with local and state laws – that needs a clear understanding of codes and provisions for thickness, color, reflection and even the location requirements.

Now it’s necessary to provide the required number of parking stalls, which are accessible for the handicapped persons, as well as utility zones suitable for vans. And any commercial or even large-scale residential property must be compliant with the ADA requirements ahead, in order to be granted the official permission and be finally brought to operating.
  • Solving Common Dilemma

should be the best way to manage that – it’s easy to install and provides double-way traffic options. Sometimes, however, the circumstances dictate the preference for sloped stalls. They offer a smooth and more controlled drive, as well as a simpler maneuvering experience, thanks to their herringbone design. And this option is quite popular among many owners. That’s why adjusting the right balance may become a rather challenging task that needs the assistance of professionals to turn out correctly.
