Why Factory Line Marking Is Important
Warehouse line marking helps with navigation around a factory environment. While this may seem simple, a well mapped out floor can make a big difference to the performance and safety of the space. Floor markings improve organisation by providing clear pathways and sectioning off storage spaces.
They can also lead people to emergency areas such as first aid kits, exits, or eyewash stations which helps with safety. If you have a large factory or warehouse, line marking will help to direct people on where to go. It will also allow you to know where to drop certain items. In turn, this will increase organization, as well as promote a better flow of traffic through the factory.
The Process of Warehouse Line Marking
Before laying down the marking lines, it is important to understand a clear system that your factory will use. Figure out a solid floor plan, and determine how this will increase safety and improve organisation in the factory. Next, you will need to prepare your space properly. This will require cleaning and clearing all of the floors before you can apply paint or tape.
It would be best to suspend factory operations while doing this. Finally, be sure to brief all employees on the details of the new marking system. In order for the system to work, everyone will need to understand the significance and direction of each line.
Floor Marking Options
Contractors use paint or tape to mark out factory floor lines. Whichever option you choose, it will need to be a specific floor marking variety. Floor marking tape is available in all standard factory line marking colours. It is made from a durable vinyl which can withstand foot and vehicle traffic.
The tape can also be specially textured, to add an extra level of grip and safety. It is commonly used on unexpected drops and stairs on slippery surfaces to prevent accidents from happening. The floor markings can be in a neutral, reflective, or glow in the dark varieties. Choose an option that will be most visible in your factory environment.
Considerations For Safety Line Marking
Floor marking is often carried out using specific colour codes. This is a standard concept that applies to different industries and factories around the country. Busy warehouses typically see plenty of foot traffic, driving vehicles, and moving parts. This makes it important to have clearly marked lines to assist with the flow.
Always try to minimise the use of colours to make the safety line marking easier to read. Also, be sure to train all employees on the factory line-markings. Factories can be dangerous, and a proper system of order is essential. Having a clearly marked and easy to understand floor plan can provide an added level of safety and efficiency.
