Durable Striping

The premium warehouse striping solution is ASG Services world renowned embedded striping. A channel is created in the concrete floor surface, removing around ⅛ of an inch and to a predetermined width, typically 4 inches. Our installation teams then fill this channel with a high build epoxy compound to create the most durable form of warehouse striping we are aware of.

Advanced equipment utilized by ASG Services is fitted with rows of diamond cutting blades for high precision preparation. This Durable floor striping is not widely known and as yet, ASG Services are unaware of any other company performing this installation is the USA.

The reason for this level of preparation is to prevent material handling equipment from striking the edge of the epoxy paint. Most paint and tapes are applied to the surface which means the forklift truck hits the edge and rides up onto the line. The forces exerted are far too great for paint or tapes to withstand the pressure, which is why painted floor striping and floor tapes wear and/or fail. Placing the paint below the surface prevents this, the forklift trucks ride onto the line without applying any sheer force.

Embedded floor striping is the most durable method of warehouse striping we know of, it takes longer to apply than any other and costs more, however it should be seen as an investment. Once complete, our customers do not have to recoat every month, or once a year, therefore saving money in ongoing maintenance.

Due to the overall cost, we advice customers to consider this option for their most high traffic areas, which results in a cost effective but high performance installation.

 

We ask all customers to thoroughly clean their warehouse and distribution center floors before we arrive to install any floor striping. Embedded floor striping requires the use of masking tape, therefore the unprepared areas need to be clean enough for tape to stick.

ASG Services works closer than ever with customers choosing this option as we appreciate that downtime costs money. We will present schedules to help fit with your operation and which help our installation teams achieve their deadlines.

All of our installation teams are fully trained and experienced in this advanced installation process, which is critical for a successful application. All are fully insured to work on any customer site throughout the US and beyond. Multi site projects are normal for ASG, keeping our teams out on embedded striping on a daily basis.

Frequently asked questions
  • What colors should I use?

    OSHA recommends the following:

    • Yellow. – Yellow shall be the basic color for designating caution and for marking physical hazards such as: Striking against, stumbling, falling, tripping, and “caught in between.”
    • “DANGER” – Red, or predominantly red, with lettering or symbols in a contrasting color.
    • “CAUTION” – Yellow, or predominantly yellow, with lettering or symbols in a contrasting color.
    • “WARNING” – Orange, or predominantly orange, with lettering or symbols in a contrasting color.
    • “BIOLOGICAL HAZARD” – Fluorescent orange or orange-red, or predominantly so, with lettering or symbols in a contrasting color.

    Most work carried out by ASG Services is done with yellow and/or white. Occasionally we will be asked to use red, green, blue and grey. If in doubt ask what we can provide, almost any color is available.

  • What preparation is best for my warehouse?

    Preparation helps improve durability, so if you are operating a very busy facility or moving items which are heavy you will likely need a preparation method.

    There are several options, for heavy traffic areas consider embedded striping, for high traffic consider shot blasted, for general and low level traffic it may be possible to use an epoxy directly on a cleaned surface, however this has a low durability rating as with tape.

    It is typically more cost effective to have a preparation method when compared to several years of recoating and touch ups which will be needed.

  • Will I need to give you a drawing? How detailed should it be?

    For the most accurate price and planning, it is best to give us as much as possible, but it’s not essential, we can visit site and create a basic depiction for you for a fee. Having a drawing helps you visualize and us to plan and quote.

  • How can I look after the lines once I have them?

    Introduce a way of thinking in your facility to do the following:
    ‘Lift Clear’ – Ensure the forklift truck drivers and warehouse operatives lift pallets clear off the floor before maneuvering.
    ‘Clean Feet’ – Entrance mats can reduce the amount of dirt and debris carried in on shoes.
    ‘Floor Watch’ – Instill awareness in the workforce to remove debris and harmful objects when they are spotted.
    ‘Pallet Care’ – Removing or repairing damaged pallets will prevent them being dragged and gouging the coating.
    ‘Clean Care’ – The cleaner the floor is, the less abrasive items there are to wear the lines, maintain a cleaning regime to suit your operation.

  • What dimensions are typical in warehouses?

    The most common dimensions are in walkway widths (4ft), pallet lane widths (pallet type dependant plus the line width) and line widths (4”), but every facility is different and may need custom sizes.
