Line striping, or line painting is an important maintenance item of a safe and functional parking lot. Here are 4 reasons why it matters that you have your lines and markings regularly re-painted.
1. Parking space is maximized= When parking stalls are regularly marked on parking surfaces, it ensures that the maximum amount of vehicles can park safely in the space. Also, the marked spaces show the right of way for traffic and helps relieve traffic congestion and cars that are parked illegally.
2. Professional image= When lines are clearly painted, it helps make your facility look as professional as possible. If lines are not marked regularly, they will break down and fade drastically. The only way to make sure that the lines are always visible is to have a regular schedule of line re-striping. This will ensure that your facility is professional and looks its absolute best.
3. A marked parking lot is a safe parking lot. =Clear lines are important for both vehicles and pedestrians alike when navigating the parking lot. Crosswalks that are well marked make sure that both drivers and pedestrians can safely avoid each other. Markings also help traffic flow to stop signs and other safety signage. This helps vehicles move efficiently through the parking lot, so traffic jams are reduced.
4. Handicapped Access= Proper line striping helps make sure that there is adequate handicapped access in parking spaces. It achieves the goal of compliance with current regulations, with clearly designated handicapped spots making sure parking spaces are compliant with the law and safe for all visitors.
