Parking Lot Striping Services
The aesthetics of parking lot striping attracts new customers and more business for property owners, but its function is much more important than appearances. A proper striping job is critical to the safety of all drivers and pedestrians in the parking lot. It aims to direct traffic and provide efficiency as customers drive into the parking lot, and avoid the inconveniences of poorly managed traffic flow.
To ensure the maintenance of your parking lot and preserve the safety of your customers, a careful design must be implemented.
Parking Lot Striping Leads to a Safer Lot
With professional experience in designing and executing striping services for government facilities and commercial properties in Fairfax, NVM Paving & Concrete puts special emphasis on the design of the project before any other step. We precisely calculate the traffic flow of the parking lot, the need for special accommodations, and the layout of each of the parking spaces to allow for maximum volume and efficiency.
Pavement Marking & the ADA
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires property owners to provide accessible parking spaces. The minimum requirement for each space is 96 inches wide, and the surrounded markings must clearly indicate the space’s purpose and discourage other users from parking there. You are required to have a certain number of handicap spaces based on the size of your lot.
If two accessible parking spaces are side by side, the markings must supply enough space to accommodate both drivers. You must also consider parking spaces for vans as the measurements and requirements differ from regular car accommodations. The ADA plays a considerable role in helping your businesses development. Most municipalities will not issue an operating permit unless your parking lot is ADA compliant.
Aside from ADA requirements, a designer must also consider the following pavement markings:
- Federal and State Mandated Pavement Markings
- Fire Lane’s
- Emergency Vehicle Markings
- Curb Painting
- Roadway Line Striping
- Warehouse Floor Striping
- Loading-Zone Marking
Professional striping involves thinking about all types of markings and requires intimate knowledge of federal and state requirements. Our designs consider these requirements and accommodations in advance, which allows for smoother execution.
The Layout of Parking Lot Striping
The reasoning behind a parking lot layout is to communicate with the user and regulate traffic throughout the lot. Designing the layout with the users in mind ensures a positive and smooth experience.
Achieving this goal requires detailed preparations on the designer’s part. Our designers are equipped with the right tools and resources to execute plans flawlessly. They will layout markings and signage and ensure your the customers’ safety.
Parking Lot Restriping
Restriping your parking lot is an inexpensive service that increases your pavement’s lifespan, its usability, and the safety of the drivers.
When designing the restriping of a parking lot, we consider the wear of the parking lot, where restriping is needed more and many other factors. To increase efficiency and occupancy of the parking lot, our designers will examine the current layout and implement a plan to improve that layout’s functionality and safety.
We recommend restriping not only because it is cost-effective but also it will minimize damage, reduce liabilities, and prevent more costly repairs.
