When should you buy Mighty Line Dots and Footprints? June 22 2016
We all know Mighty Line has the most durable and reliable floor tape for your warehouse floor marking needs, but there’s a lot more to marking your floors than just plain bold tape. You’ll want to start by drawing a diagram of your warehouse floor to get a real understanding of where walkways, aisles, and exits will be. Doing this simple beginning step will tell you how much tape to buy, what colors to buy, and whether you’ll need more than regular floor tape.
For safety to be streamlined in any facility, OSHA has requirements for the colors to mark for specific instances, such as first aid stations and pedestrian walkways, but there aren’t any rules for marking beyond that. It’s up to you to decide what is the best fit for your own needs, and Mighty Line has got whatever your warehouse desires!
Mighty Line Footprints are used to identify walkways and exits in your facility. In warehouses with a lot of foot traffic, especially those visiting, footprints are a must. Footprints are easily distinguishable from other types of floor markings, so people from outside your regular workers will not confused about how to safely navigate your warehouse floor.
Check out this quick video from Mighty Line to see a demonstration of the easy installation process.
Mighty Line Dots are used in areas that require a curved line. Standard floor tape does a great job at marking your aisles and to indicate potentially hazardous materials, but it will not help you achieve anything but a straight line. Curved lines are useful to mark off storage areas for barrels and other types of inventory with a curvature rather than edged packaging.
Here is another video from Mighty Line, featuring the Mighty Line Dots.
