Parking Lot Marking and Striping
Parking lot striping is the icing on the “cake” and the first thing people notice when they enter your parking lot. Parking Lot striping is an important part of the pavement maintenance process as it directs the people safely throughout your property. From the parking spaces to the crosswalks and curb painting each plays an important role in the safety and security of customers, visitors and patrons. Without a properly applied pavement marking layout there could be accidents throughout the lot that you the business owner could be liable for.
Parking Lot Marking
The main reason for line striping your parking lot is safety and liability. When lines or stencils do not exist in your parking there is no structure for your customers or employees. This can lead to accidents, towed vehicles, issues with the fire department and blocked handicap access. Having a well-marked parking lot will enhance the appearance of your property.

Parking Lot Marking 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.
