In much of the work we do, the driving force is safety. This is particularly true for pedestrian road markings, where the markings are designed both to keep pedestrians in safe areas around a road or worksite, and to make these areas clear to vehicles.
By ensuring that you have proper pedestrian walkways, you can give your employees peace of mind on your site, make certain that you are complying with health and safety laws, and protect against the possibility of an accidental collision or other incident.
Walkways and other pedestrian zones are vital for areas where people and vehicles might regularly cross paths, particularly in an environment with obstructions that could obscure pedestrians from view, such as in warehouses and distribution centres.
Many of our pedestrian road marking jobs have been in and around warehouses or storage areas, where tall pallet loads, rows of shelving and a noisy environment can create additional hazards which threaten personnel. Walkways ensure that everyone knows where pedestrians are, creating a buffer zone between vehicles and other workers in the space.
As well as simple walkways, these dense and high traffic areas can also benefit from additional pathfinding. Hi-Way Solutions can install directional arrows to dictate the flow of traffic, mark loading bays and fire exits, and repaint old lines to ensure that they stand out from the scenery.
Pedestrian road markings can also apply to pavements and other segmented areas, such as cycle lanes, directional arrows and other symbols for foot traffic. Road markings can be an effective way to control pedestrian traffic in crowded areas, preventing bottlenecks and managing the flow of people.
