Warehouse floors are constantly buzzing with activity as employees drive forklifts, stock inventory and pick orders. While observing all of the action can sometimes look like barely controlled chaos, every warehouse employee knows that there is a highly organized system that guides each person’s activities. Warehouse striping is an essential part of making sure that everyone stays safe while they are hard at work, and our goal is to use our advanced equipment to create strategic layouts that improve efficiency in commercial buildings throughout the DFW-metroplex, including Tyler.
What Are the Benefits of Warehouse Striping?
The importance of safety is constantly at the forefront of every warehouse employee’s mind. Warehouse floor line striping ensures that your company complies with OSHA safety standards that require all of the permanent aisles and passageways in the building to have markings that guide people’s actions.
Making sure that both pedestrians and drivers of heavy-duty vehicles know where to pay special attention helps to decrease accidents. Employees are also able to act with more efficiency when they know where a pallet or other materials should go.
What Should Be Included In a Warehouse Layout?
Striping contractors typically begin by planning for essential safety markings. Traffic lines, such as what you would see in parking lot striping services, are common in warehouses. For instance, both warehouse and parking lot striping jobs require crosswalks along with directional markings that provide insight into the preferred flow of traffic.
Warehouse floor striping layouts can also include designated areas for people to use for loading and unloading inventory stock. We can also include markings that let people know where to find essential safety equipment or avoid hazardous materials.
How Is Color Coding Used for Warehouse Striping?
OSHA regulations give you the ability to choose the colors that you prefer, but there are some hues that have widely accepted meanings throughout the warehouse industry. For instance, yellow line striping is often used to designate steps up or staircases along with traffic lanes.
Red and white striping can indicate areas where people might exit the building or take refuge during an emergency. A large part of our lot striping services includes assisting your company with developing a color coded plan that covers all of your warehouse’s needs for safety and organization.
