Don't Paint Lines! Use Floor Marking Tape

Don't Paint Lines! Use Floor Marking Tape

Published: 30/10/2017 16:47:46

Reasons that Floor Marking Tape is a better alternative to Painting Lines

Painting lines to mark and organise industrial warehouse floors has been the common method for many years. However just because businesses have been using this method for a long, long time does not mean it is the best way to efficiently organise your warehouse and workplace.

Actually, there are a lot of reasons why using Paint to mark the floors is actually not the best option' For example, many paints include non-environmentally and possibly hazardous fumes, especially with the longer lasting paints out there, and fumes and staff is not a good mix! Again with heavy duty Paint can come with long dry times, meaning parts of your business have to "stop" during this period, not ideal in a busy company

Generally, for Paint to properly dry and cure, it can take up to 72 hours before it is ready for us meaning movement and production in your company would struggle for what is no short amount of time. this disruption is only going to be a bad thing, but Paint is a wet product with time needed to be "ready for use"

As well as this inconvenience to your company with restricted movement, there is an increased labour issue as painting lines is quite a task!

Floor Marking Tape is very easy and quick to apply, the aggressive adhesive sticks instantly and is ready for use immediately. Floor Marking Tape allows you to quickly and efficiently manage your warehouse fast, improving all areas including goods-in and dispatch as well and any manufacturing or packing that maybe taken place. Lane Marking Tape is a quick and instant visible sign to all staff, a simple solution to organisation which is easy for everyone to understand

Line Marking Tape from Indigo is very cost effective, due to our buying power we offer the lowest prices in the industry, and all prices are backed up with our price beater guarantee! If you find a cheaper price tell us! We will beat it.

Ok so its competitive, what about Durability?

Our Floor Marking Tape has been made to be extremely durable and has been made to deal with the daily abuse found in a busy warehouse. Unlike Floor paint which can quickly need to be touched up after just a few months in a busy warehouse, Floor Marking Tape has resiliency and durability which enables it to withstand the daily activity in warehouses for a much longer period of time. Designed from the ground up to withstand the most demanding warehouse traffic including foot traffic and of course forklift trucks and Pallet Trucks! Floor marking Tape is also able to deal with chemical spills which generally paint cannot

Floor Marking Tape is as mentioned above very easy and quick to apply, requiring a short amount of time and little labour compared to the paint alternative. A roll takes approx 5 minutes to use, vastly less time than it takes to Paint Lines, this is a good saving in time and money.

Paint Lines are easily marked during heavy traffic and therefore can need re-painting regularly, Floor marking tape is less effected by Marking and generally lasts for 2-3 years before replacement is required

We stock a full range of tape including leading brands such as 3M and Tesa
