Types of Warehouse Floor Striping

Several types of striping are available. We can help you choose the best option for your floor depending on your surface material composition, durability requirements, and desired uses.

  • Paint. Paint can be applied using brushes, rollers, or sprayers and is ultra durable for industrial use. It provides a clean and professional look, offers versatility in terms of color options, can be applied on most surface types, and is easy to modify or remove if desired.
  • Tape. Floor marking tape can be used to create lines and markings. Tape comes in different colors, widths, and materials, including vinyl, PVC, or polyester. It is relatively quick and easy to install, and many types of tape are designed for heavy traffic and durability. Tape striping is often used for temporary or semi-permanent markings.
  • Epoxy coatings. Epoxy is a thermosetting resin that, when mixed with a hardener, forms a tough and chemically resistant coating. It can be applied in different colors and is known for its high durability, resistance to abrasion, chemicals, and heavy traffic. Epoxy striping provides a smooth and even surface and is commonly used in warehouses with cleanliness requirements, such as food storage facilities.
  • Thermoplastic. Pre-formed thermoplastic strips are heated until they melt and bond with the floor, creating a highly durable and long-lasting floor marking. This is commonly used in areas with heavy traffic or where additional durability is required, such as loading docks or truck lanes.
  • Shot blasting or grinding. Using specialized equipment to remove a thin layer of the floor surface, this method creates a recessed or grooved area where the striping material can be applied. This provides a durable and long-lasting solution, especially suitable for high-traffic areas where the striping needs to withstand heavy loads or frequent abrasion.

The choice of striping method should consider factors such as cost, durability requirements, maintenance ease, and the specific needs of your warehouse operation. Our team of flooring experts can help you determine the most suitable method for your warehouse floor.

Benefits and Uses for Warehouse Floor Striping

Striping is a long-lasting, cost-effective solution with a variety of uses and benefits for your warehouse.

1. Safety. Hazard zones such as loading docks or forklift traffic areas can be indicated so that workers know when to exercise caution.

2. Organization. With many warehouses implementing elaborate inventory management systems, it can sometimes be challenging for staff to navigate inventory and locate items quickly. Striping can alleviate this problem by creating a clear path to their destination.

3. Increased productivity. Clearly marked areas and navigation routes will allow your workers to move about more efficiently, reducing time taken to complete tasks.

4. Endless customization. Striping can be customized to match any branding or color preferences as desired.
