Why Line Striping is Essential
Are you a commercial property owner or manager? Does your retail building, office building, warehouse, or other property have parking lots or roadways on the property? If so, you need to know a thing or two about line striping and marking. Here’s why line striping and marking are a key part of maintenance for every commercial property owner.
Marking is required for ADA compliance
The ADA, or Americans with Disabilities Act, applies to every business in the United States. It governs handicap accessible parking. To be ADA compliant, you have to have the correct number of handicap accessible spaces, they must be clearly marked with pavement markings and signs, and they must be a certain distance from entrances. These parking spots generally need to be van-accessible for wheelchair lift-equipped vehicles.
