Parking Lot Striping
A clean well maintained, attractive parking lot is a good indication that the property owner emphasizes maintenance, because the parking lot is the first things noticed by clients, customers and visitors entering a business premise.
Having a well marked parking lot does a great job directing people safely around the parking lot area enabling easy and smooth movement. Fireman’s Contractors parking lot striping services provides maintenance services to either re-strip or lay out new markings per customer’s blueprints or Fireman’s designs. Details include crosswalks, loading zones markings, stop bars, marked pick up areas, pedestrians walk, when to give right way to traffic and what areas to avoid.
Parking Lot Striping Design Considerations
To get the best out of a parking lot, proper planning must be in place to get an effective and neat layout. A property owner must strive to get as many cars as possible into a parking lot to maintain cost effectiveness. The right layout inspired by Firemans Constructors design can help meet this goal.
Efficient Traffic Flow
If the parking lot is not well organized and if some facilities are not available like handicapped parking space could mean you are losing viable clients or customers to your business. Customers always look for easy of movement, a place they can easily enter, park and exit quickly and safely. With properly placed parking stalls that look attractive with arrows and handicapped reserve signs help to effectively direct travelers.
A proper feasibility study needs to be done to determine whether a parking lot needs designated parking lots for disabled persons, employees, visitors and customers.
Since the (ADA) Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into place every property owner is required by law to place a designated parking-lot for disabled persons. Be it a small company or a big multinational corporation, all businesses premises must now have a proper amount of handicapped parking stalls and required van parking space.
ADA requirements are very strict and the specifications might not be familiar to all business owners and so it is important to hire an expert who has all the first hand details to the requirements like Fireman’s Constructors.
The main goal of having a well planned layout is to provide the most out of the parking space available. Angled stalls have been identified by most drivers as the easiest for drivers to turn into and back out of and require a narrower lane. The 90° straight in design always for the maximum number of stalls but 45°, 60° or 75° angled stalls are also very popular.
Pavement Marking Procedure
Efficiency is Fireman’s Constructors first priority by employing quality material and the latest equipment to get the job done efficiently. The strippers used by Fireman’s provide specialized signs and markings for any application. A power blower or broom is used in the preparation of the site to clean all the debris and where applicable remove all the old stripes.
Pavement Marking Facts
Using environmentally friendly material is a top priority for Firemans Constructors, therefore only environmentally friendly acrylic water borne paint is used. Newly stripped parts should be kept off traffic for at least one hour for the paint to dry up. The temperature should be 45° Fahrenheit and rising. Construction of the parking pavement should never be considered the end of maintenance.
