After I realized that our back porch was chipping apart, I decided that I needed to work a little harder to make things right. I started carefully analyzing the area, and I realized that the concrete needed to be completely removed and re-poured. I knew that asphalt work was beyond my comfort level, so I decided to call in a professional contractor to do the work. It was amazing to watch them work, and when they were finished our yard looked brand new. This blog is all about improving your hardscaping by replacing old, cracked, or discolored asphalt or concrete paving.
If you own a warehouse, warehouse line striping is something that you should have done. The material that is used to create the stripes can be made using a material that dissolves or fades away in a couple of years, or can be created using permanent paint, as well as a few options in between. If you have never had warehouse line striping done before, you may be wondering why you would want stripes or markings. Here are a few of the reasons why.
Helps to Define Different Types of Spaces
One of the reasons why warehouse striping is done is to help define different types of spaces in your warehouse. It can be hard to determine where you are going to place shelves, pallet racks, or where machinery and equipment will be set up. Warehouse line striping can help you to visualize exactly where different types of spaces will be set up before you move into a building, allowing you to tweak or make changes, before you physically have large items in the warehouse. Having different spaces defined also makes it easier when equipment has to be removed to be cleaned or repaired, as you can see exactly where it was positioned before.
Creates Guides for Pedestrians and Forklift Drivers
Another benefit associated with having warehouse line striping done is that it create guides for pedestrians and forklift drivers who are working in your warehouse. Imagine having a road with no markings on it. No one would know where to drive, where to turn, where to stop or where crosswalks are. The same is true in your warehouse. Creating lines helps to create clear guides for pedestrians and forklift drivers, helping to increase safety in your warehouse.
Helps to Ensure Your Business is Compliant With Federal Laws
The final reason why warehouse line striping and marking is done is to help ensure your business is compliant with federal laws. Federal laws require there to be so much space between aisle ways. They may require different chemicals to be stored so far away from each other. And they may also require so much space around different types of machinery. Having lines can help you to ensure that you are compliant with these federal laws, which can help prevent fines or OSHA shutting your warehouse down for non-compliance.
There are many benefits associated with having warehouse line striping and warehouse marking completed on your warehouse floors.
