Using Commercial Coating Systems to Increase Warehouse Safety

 Using Commercial Coating Systems to Increase Warehouse Safety

Many business owners often forget that choosing the right paint is more than just selecting a nice and attractive hue. For many warehouses and commercial spaces, paint creates safer pathways and increases traction on floors. Although paint can’t literally prevent accidents from happening, it can alert employees to several potential hazards.

Maintenance

Preparing for commercial floor painting and coating means working with employees to create a plan that works for everyone. Schedule the painting project accordingly, take repairs and dry time into account, and clean out the warehouse to ensure optimum paint adherence.

After we complete a job, the contractors at Alpine help facility managers plan for proper maintenance, care, and cleaning. That training should be shared with warehouse employees and best practices should be established to extend the longevity of the paint.

While temporary floor lines can be a quick fix, they’re not ideal for warehouses with floor plans that don’t change. Depending on the volume of traffic throughout your facility, semi-permanent or permanent paint can be used.

Floor markings

Floor lines need to be used consistently throughout the facility and provide workers with color-coded safety instructions.The lines used to delineate the aisles may be any color so long as they clearly define the area considered as aisle space. The lines may be composed of dots, rectangles, stripes, or continuous lines, but they too must define the aisle area.

Peeling, fading, and cracked floor markings are just as bad as having no markings at all. While warehouse paint is meant to withstand high volumes of traffic and wear from equipment, it’s not going to last forever. If there are frequent accidents in areas of your warehouse despite having proper floor markings, it may be time to repaint.

Hire professionals

From start to finish, commercial safety marketings and floor coatings need to be managed and applied by professionals who have experience working in warehouses. Working with commercial paint professionals like Alpine can help you ensure that the job gets done right and the safety of your employees is secured.
