A parking lot is one of the first things noticed by customers, clients, and visitors entering a facility. The color contrast of a newly striped lot is attractive and is a good indication that the property owner emphasizes maintenance.A well-marked parking lot directs people safely around the parking area. Crosswalks, stop bars, loading-zone markings, and properly marked pickup areas, such as for customers or boarding vehicles, inform pedestrians where they should walk, when to give right-of-way to traffic, and what areas to avoid.To help preserve or improve the flow of traffic on a parking lot, Know Parking Inc. parking lot experts will either re-stripe or lay out new markings using customer's blueprints or our custom design solutions. Parking Lot Striping Design Considerations Maximize Space

A property owner aims to get the most cars possible into a parking lot to maintain cost-effectiveness. The right layout and parking lot striping can help meet this goal. Efficient Traffic Flow

Customers want parking lots that allow them to enter, park, and exit quickly and safely. Attractive and properly placed parking stalls, arrows, and handicapped-reserve signs help to efficiently direct travelers. Designated Parking

Before parking lot striping, it important to consider whether a parking lot needs designated parking spaces for disabled
persons, customers, employees, visitors, or other individuals. ADA Guidelines

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.

Layout Options

Providing the most stalls possible in a functional parking lot is the main goal of a layout.The straight-in design (90°) always allows for the most stalls; but, for a variety of reasons, angled stalls (45°, 60° or 75°) are preferred. Straight-in stalls are easiest to lay out and stripe, plus they permit two-way traffic.Angled stalls, on the other hand, are easier for drivers to turn into and back out of and require a narrower lane. In addition, angled stalls provide a controlled one-way traffic flow and create a herringbone design that many owners find appealing. Unfortunately, the greater the angle, the more space is taken up.

Pavement Marking Procedure

Know Parking Inc. uses the highest quality material and the latest equipment to get the job done efficiently. Our parking lot stripe teams are also equipped to provide specialized markings and signs for any application.Preparation involves cleaning the lot of all debris with a power blower or broom and, where applicable, removing old stripes. Detailed specifications are available for download in our Pavement Marking Technical Specs (PMTS) library. Pavement Marking Facts

Since we only apply environmentally friendly acrylic lead free water-borne or oil based paints, the temperature must be 45° Fahrenheit and rising. Traffic should be kept off a newly striped lot for at least one hour.Pavement marking should never be considered the end of maintenance. Rather, lot marking indicates that all surface repairs are complete and the pavement is ready for efficient use by both the public and property owner.
