Line striping and marking your parking lot and roadways of your commercial property is important to the safety of your clients. Not only do these two things direct traffic, both for humans and vehicles, but they also help you be in compliance with specific laws.
Selecting an asphalt company with expertise in line striping design and pavement marking layouts of parking lots will ensure effective traffic flow and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations.
In July 1990 the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law. ADA compliance is in effect for every business owner in the United States, big or small. Keeping your company compliant with ADA guidelines on re-striping and new parking lot layouts is a must.
To safely direct traffic, you’ll want to make sure your pavement lines are straight and even, but before that, a traffic flow pattern and parking lot layout must be derived. Having a well thought out plan, is as important as having even lines of the parking lot stalls. Nothing makes your business stand out more than a newly striped commercial parking lot; however, a poorly derived plan and unprofessional asphalt markings can be a disaster!
How do Asphalt Companies Mark Pavement?
To begin, the asphalt company will remove any debris from the area to be marked. For high traffic areas, durability and safety, thermoplastic road markings can be used. This polymer resin comes in a roll and can be imbedded with glass beads for night-time reflectivity. To install, it is unrolled and laid into position. Other road signs such as a thermoplastic disabled symbol, one depicting a person in a wheelchair, a bike or pedestrian symbol, or numbers – to identify parking spaces, come as flat signs. These can be laid into place after the surface is prepared. Next, using a propane gas torch, the road markings are heated until the substrate melts.
Parking lot lines can also be marked using a paint striping machine and some paint. It’s a fast and easy way to revitalize your parking lot.
