03 Jun Why is Parking Lot Striping So Important?
When it comes to your business, just how important is your commercial parking lot? Since it’s the first thing your customers see when they approach your business, your curb appeal can make or break a good first impression. Let’s remember the first thing they see in your lot— the lines that stripe it.
Parking lot lines are essential to parking lots. Sans visible striping, your lot can become chaotic and even dangerous. Frequent restriping (especially on new sealcoat) can make all the difference in your visitors experience with your parking lot; ultimately, you can thank our lucky stripes for:
Maintaining an Orderly Flow of Traffic
Traffic flow through a parking lot can be controlled by proper lot marking. Letting customers know how they should be maneuvering through the parking lot will help to avoid accidents and let foot traffic move safely around your property. If you really want your lot markings to pop, refresh your sealcoat as well and give your stripes a fresh black background to set them off.
Proper markings, such as cross walks and no parking messages will help pedestrians navigate your parking lot with less fear of an accident happening. Also, installing proper wheel stops can help deter cars from driving through the parking stalls and enforce the use of the designated drive lanes.
Ensuring ADA Compliance
Make sure that your ADA accessibility is accurate and up to code. Proper signage, path of travel and public access points are just a few ehancements needed for your property to be ADA compliant.
