A parking lot is one of the first things customers and clients notice when entering a facility. Fresh line markings can be an indication that the property owner emphasizes maintenance. A well-marked parking lot directs people safely around the parking area ensuring safety at your facility. Line marking can also include crosswalks, stop bars, loading-zone markings, and properly marked pickup areas.
To help preserve or improve the flow of traffic on a parking lot, our parking lot stripers will either re-stripe or lay out new markings per customer’s blueprints or our agreed upon design.
Parking Lot Striping Design Considerations
Property owners want to maximize their space. It’s important to fit as many cars as possible to maintain cost-effectiveness. M & S Paving and Sealing can help you select and design the right layout and parking lot striping can help meet this goal while maintaining efficient traffic flow.
Signed into law in July 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) affects every property owner. Regardless of company size, all businesses must now have the proper amount of handicapped-accessible parking stalls, and required van parking spaces.
Many municipalities require a newly constructed parking lot (at commercial or large residential properties) to be striped up to ADA requirements before an operating permit is issued. In addition, they must also have a minimum number of parking spaces per 1,000 square feet of utilized facility.
M & S Paving And Sealing can help you design a functional parking lot using several different options. The straight-in design (90°) always allows for the most stalls; but, for a variety of reasons, angled stalls (45°, 60° or 75°) are often preferred. Our experts will discuss both these options with you to find the most suitable design for your parking lot.
Pavement Marking Procedure
Only the highest quality material and the latest equipment are used to get the job done efficiently. Our parking lot stripers are also equipped to provide specialized markings and signs for any application.
Preparation involves cleaning the lot of all debris, and, where applicable, removing old stripes.
