How to Easily Safeguard Your Slippery Parking Lot
Posted by Dane Ings on
Parking lots can be a headache when it comes to manoeuvring around in your vehicle trying to find parking without bumping into something. But have you considered that parking lots can be dangerous for pedestrians too?
Most parking lots feature some kind of painted walking surface. Some examples include parking stall line stripes, "No Parking" areas and pedestrian crosswalks. These painted surfaces are often quite slippery and frequently pose a risk of serious slip-and-fall accidents. If you own or manage a parking lot, it's your responsibility to safeguard the area.
One of the easiest and most affordable ways to increase traction in your parking lot areas is investing in parking lot stripe paint. Let's explore:
How parking lot stripe paint can be used to safeguard parking lots
When deciding to paint your parking lot, standard paints that are typically used will not properly adhere to asphalt or concrete. Latex and acrylic paints, for example, can peel over time and become very slippery, especially when wet.
At SlipDoctors, we recommend Alpha Grip. This anti-slip paint for parking lot stripes is a water-based and eco-friendly paint that can be applied to a variety of surfaces, including asphalt and concrete.
Alpha Grip is designed to drastically increase the slip resistance of surfaces. And when applied, it has a semi-gloss textured non-slip finish.
Any area that requires additional traction, such as your pavement, parking lot or garage, can all benefit from this paint for parking lines.
Using a roller, Alpha Grip can be applied quickly and easily. In most cases, it is dry to the touch in less than two hours and completely cured in 24 hours.
Invest in the right non-slip safety solution for your parking lot
Slip-and-fall accidents on painted surfaces in parking lots are often avoidable. With the right product, you can easily enhance the traction and safeguard your parking lot.
