1. Safety – parking lot striping, or what’s sometimes called, line striping is important to the safety of the drivers and pedestrians that traverse your parking area daily. Well-defined crosswalks ensure that drivers and pedestrians watch out for each other and each can reach their destination without incident.
Additionally, parking lot pavement markings help direct traffic flow so that one way streets, stop signs and other important safety signs are backed up by well marked pavement signs assisting drivers in safely maneuvering through the lot.
When parking lot lines are well-marked on your pavement, cars know to efficiently move through the parking lot meaning more time in your place of business and less time navigating through a traffic jam.
2. Maximize Parking Spaces – line stalls that are clearly marked on the asphalt pavement ensure that the maximum number of cars and trucks can park in the lot at one time. Additionally, clearly marked stalls also indicate where the right of way for vehicle traffic is and helps parking lots from becoming congested or blocked off by illegally parked vehicles.
3. Curb Appeal – a freshly stripped parking lot helps maintain curb appear of your facility. Over time, parking lot lines will fade under the constant exposure to the elements and the traffic in the parking lot. Many facility managers will re-stripe their parking lots after their regularly scheduled sealcoating work is completed. The contrast of the black pavement versus the crisp white, yellow and blue lines most commonly used in parking lot line striping and parking lot markings make quite a statement. It is very visually appealing.
4. Handicapped Spacing and Access – an important part of line striping is to ensure proper access for handicapped, make it easier to identify handicap parking spaces and direct visitors to the most direct path to the building. In addition to making it easier for handicap visitors to navigate within the parking lot, the American Disabilities Act requires businesses and public facilities to clearly designate handicap spots. Thus, by stenciling these in, you will be in compliance with the law.
