10 Floor Marking Tips

13,714 views

Published on

Floor Markings, as many facility managers and safety managers know, are an important part of creating and maintaining a safe environment for workers and employees. One of the more apparent examples of this is the creation of safety lanes throughout the facility, keeping humans within safe boundaries - out of the traffic lanes for forklifts or at a distance from dangerous machines.

Floor marking uses are endless and they have their place in almost every industry, coming in many various formats, colors, length and material used. The best of them are made of highly durable materials that can withstand high traffic and extreme environments where solvents, cleaning fluids, oils and other chemical based elements can be found or spilled on to the floor.

Not only the surface material but the adhesive as well need to be able to withstand pressures and other elements that would cause it to buckle, peel or degrade quickly. The most common alternative to floor markings is painting, which can be messy, costly and shut down your facility, or at least a part of it, while the paint is applied and dried.

Here is a look at our product, SafetyTac Industrial Floor Marking Tape:
- #1 Rated, 100' Per Roll:
- Rated # 1 floor marking tape for all traffic situations including high forklift and truck traffic
- Includes a double tapered edge so carts and items can easily slide over it.
- Strong rubber based adhesive. It sticks until you want it to come up.
- Simple and easy peel-&-stick installation. (Applicator is not needed for install)
- No dry time, cure time, fumes or messy clean up to limit productivity.
- Backed by a 1-year warranty.

SafetyTac adhesive tape is the perfect solution for almost any floor marking project you have. It can handle forklift and truck traffic. It has a thinner profile and stronger adhesive, making it suitable for most any facility. Our 100% smear and scuff resistant "caution" striping is ideal for alerting workers where to be cautious in the workplace.

Hazard striping is ideal for visually warning workers of hazardous work areas. Electrical panels are required to be free from any materials for easy access in case of emergencies. Hazard striping clearly identifies the area and emphasizes the importance of keeping the area clear at all times.

This particular slideshare was constructed to give insight and guidance regarding the various types of floor marking materials available as well as those which are required to be OSHA compliant. While not extensive, nor purporting to be fully authoritative in matter and content, this slide share has many important and interesting elements that almost any facility manager would profit from.

  • Since many Lock Out Tag Out stickers, tags, and labels are red with white stripes, I was thinking of using the same colored tape to mark the areas. But the one slide suggests using Yellow & Black striped tape since it is protecting the employees from a physical hazard.
