The Importance Of A Well-Organised Parking Lot.  

By September 14, 2018Construction & Building

Driving into car parks, we never seem to notice the lines and demarcations on the floor telling us where to go and where to park – we are so used to them that it is almost as if we entirely overlook their existence. However, practically speaking these seemingly invisible car park line markings are the only reason why we don’t see chaos whenever we enter the parking lots. Apart from telling us where to park, these line markings tell us where the entrances and exits are, where the fire escapes are and wherever it is that we need to go. This can be especially necessary for basement car parks which can turn into chaotic mazes without proper signs. We have all had the misfortune of ending up in a car park without proper demarcations and signs, and have ended up wandering around totally lost, looking for either entrances or exits. We can find ourselves parking in the wrong spots or parking way too close to other cars. Without car park line markings, a parking lot can look quite similar to a bunch of cars clumsily thrown together. So, for any complex building, whether we have a shopping mall, an apartment complex or a business, it is extremely essential for the ease of everyone involved that car park is properly delineated and demarcated. Here are three ways that car park line markings can save us all trouble.  

  1. Car park line markings can lead to the establishment of clear car spaces. This is one of the most essential things in any car parking space, as without a proper area allotted to every car, there can be many problems. We may see the car park become heavily congested as without proper spaces defining the space allotted to a single car, not only is there not a set amount of cars that can enter the parking lot, but the cars can end up parking way too close to each other. This can cause not only issues in moving the cars but can also damage car exteriors when the owners either open doors or when they attempt to move their cars. In addition, without a set way to park, some car owners may end up taking too much space by parking horizontally, and this can be greatly problematic. At the end of the day the car park can end up looking like a bunch of cars haphazardly grouped together. Line markings can save us this trouble by making sure that the cars park correctly, with proper space for every vehicle.  
  2. Car park line markings Sydney can be especially useful for newcomers to a certain parking complex. These newcomers can be unaware of the direction of traffic flow, and just one car going the wrong way can cause traffic disturbances. In addition to this, in an unlined and unmarked parking space newcomers and even frequenters can end up parking where they are not supposed to, such as areas reserved for the fire route, the exit passages and the driveways. While the owner of the wrongly parked car can drive away unaware, the car can cause great disturbances for the others and can even encourage others to park in wrong places.  
  3. Any car park needs to have reserved parking spaces for the elderly and the disabled, as it can be especially necessary for them to have easily accessible spots. Similarly, some businesses may require extra space for workers or other personnel, and car park line marking Sydney can create these with zero fuss. For shopping malls, separate spaces can be set up for carts so that everything is efficiently organised.
