Pavement markings are one of the most important aspects of your property. They guide your customer’s traffic flow, identify pedestrian crossing, navigate through the property and ensure efficient volume of cars within safe limits. We provide guidance on how to maximize your parking lot spaces and traffic flow while keeping within federal, state and local codes.
Maintaining parking lot pavement markings is an economical way to maintain your property’s appearance. We repave and/or resurface then restripe existing parking lots as well as utilize blueprints for new construction layout design. Additionally, our company provides layout and paint for athletic venues, including fields, tracks, and basketball courts.
We use water-based, Department of Transportation approved, pavement marking paint. Our paint, approved for highway traffic, is long lasting and stands up to high volumes of traffic. Utilizing this paint enhances the durability and longevity of the lines for our customer’s parking lot in order to with-stand continual traffic. To increase traction when painted markings are wet, we use crushed glass. Crushed glass grit (sand like material) is manufactured from 100% post-consumer, recycled glass bottles. The use of the crushed glass also benefits the environment by diverting waste from landfills.
To increase visibility of pavement markings at night, we utilize retro-reflective glass beads. This product allows drivers to see the color and size of pavement markings, which reflects off vehicle head lights.
Curb Painting/Stencil Markings
Curb painting provides a contrast from the pavement and allows pedestrians to easily distinguish the difference in surface levels. In addition, curb painting is beneficial around curves for vehicles to navigate the parking lot as well as help designate or emphasize specific areas by color.
Red: Deters parking in fire lanes or no parking zones.
Blue: Emphasizes handicap parking space.
Yellow/White: Specifies loading zones, caution, towing areas or visitor parking.
Our company stencils curbing verbiage or numerical lettering to reference parking spaces or areas of the property. Common curbing stencils include reserved, customers only, guests, visitor, no parking and/or numbers for apartment complex residents.
Thermoplastic is solid plastic, when heated the solid converts to a liquid form and is applied to concrete or asphalt for pavement markings. Thermoplastic is used for high traffic areas such as roadways, cross walks or entrances to parking lots due to its durability, crack resistance, skid resistance, and reflectivity for night visibility.
In July 1990 the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) began affecting every property owner. Regardless of company size, all businesses must have the proper amount of handicapped-accessible parking stalls. Many municipalities require a newly constructed, commercial parking lot to be striped to ADA requirements before an operating permit is issued.
