Maximize Space – All property owners want to get the most cars possible into a parking lot in order to maintain cost-effectiveness. They still want to make sure it allows comfortable parking for drivers. The right layout and striping can help meet this goal of the most amount of space while maintaining a safe area for drivers to manipulate the vehicles. You gain the complete appreciation of your customers. They come in feeling pampered and not out of sorts due to parking congestion and from having a hard time parking with constricted spacing and maneuvering area.
Efficient Traffic Flow – Customers and lot want parking lots that allow the customers to enter, park, and exit quickly and safely. Attractive and properly placed parking stalls, arrows, and handicapped-reserve signs help to efficiently direct travelers without causing accidents, restricted flow, irritating drivers/potential customers who are fighting the lot before even being able to come into your business.
Designated Parking – While thinking of your striping needs, it important to consider whether a parking lot needs designated parking spaces for disabled persons, customers, employees, visitors, or other individuals where you need designated parking spots.
Single Line Striping – One single line separating two car spaces. This is the least expensive option when it comes to parking lot stripes.
Double-Line Striping – The double-line parking stall is usually boxed at the end. The stalls are spaced about one foot apart from centerline to centerline. At time, these are preferred because they give drivers a small buffer that allows for better entry and exit of their parked vehicle and their car doors opening. You lose some parking spaces . . . but you gain the complete appreciation of your customers. They come in feeling pampered and not out of sorts due to parking congestion and from having a hard time parking.
Round-End Striping – Similar to the double-line parking lot striping mentioned above, but with a decorative rounded half-circle end instead of a square, flat end like the standard design. Many high-end malls and business parks like to use these to add a touch of class to their line striping layout. Because this requires a separate stencil to complete the round end, the price is usually more than the standard double-square end parking stall lines because it is more labor intensive and requires more paint product.
Custom Line Striping – Custom parking lot design is anything that you can think of. People have come up with some unique ways to make their parking lots look interesting and different while still serving its basic function of organized parking. With different medias such as paints, tapes, decals, and stencils, and a fun design by customers, our lot stripers are able to do some fun and creative things on asphalt, concrete, dirt and grass.
90 Degree Striping – This type of parking line is the type of parking stall you can pull straight into. Also referred to as head-in parking, meaning when a vehicle pulls into a 90-degree stall, it is parked perfectly straight into the stall and flush to the curb face.
60 Degree Striping – This type of parking lot striping line is another of the most common type of parking stall layout. It is also referred to as angled parking. This is the least severe angle that we use when laying out a parking spaces. We usually use this where head-in or 90-degree parking is not permissible. Another reason to use this type of layout would be for the fact that it helps create more backing-out room for drivers getting out of the parking stall making it easier for pulling in and out.
45 Degree Striping – This parking lot striping is exactly like the one mentioned above except that the degree is even greater. The tighter the area is that parking being striped for, the greater degree of angle will be needed.
T-stall Striping – These are commonly also called boxed stalls. This layout scenario is typically used in an alley or up against a fence or block wall. This layout allows a property owner to take advantage of areas where parking typically doesn’t occur such as when a building owner need to lay out parking along a wall where a driveway is. To still maintain the traffic flow, a traditional parking space can’t be used, so he may opt to use t-stalls. This means striping each corners of single spaces that are marked parallel to the wall and marked only by the two corners of the cars outer edge with a T.
