Painting requires preparing floors with processes such as bead blasting or acid etching. While it is a necessary step if the paint is going to be able to bite into the surface of the concrete, it damages the concrete. Operations must shut down to accommodate the long hours of paint application and dry time. And then, when painted lines are subjected to heavy traffic such as forklifts, the rate at which the markings deteriorate is disappointingly rapid.
Our e-commerce website is called Stop-Painting.com to encourage people to question if painting is the best way to mark floors. OSHA requires pedestrian aisle ways to be clearly marked, and any company that wants to be efficient is also going to mark floors for organizational and safety purposes. The question is, which method of floor marking makes good business sense over time? To answer this question, companies have to spend considerable time digging out costs that are hidden in the various categories of their budgets or between the line item details of a contractor's quote. The truth is, when you ask most companies how much they spend keeping their floor markings maintained, they rarely can give a straight answer.
