Aisle Marking Tape – Overview

2 min read

Most manufacturing facilities and other similar areas have a wide range of different walking aisles which people use to get from place to place within the area.  It is critical that these aisles are clearly marked to ensure that everyone who is traveling through the facility knows where they should and should not go.  While there are many different options when it comes to marking your floors, aisle marking tape is among the most affordable and easiest to use.

In addition to the fact that it is cheap and simple to use, it is also extremely effective.  Many facilities simply place the aisle marking tape on either side of the aisles people use to walk on so nobody accidently moves off the approved area.  The reason why this is so important is that in these types of facilities there are often moving parts or other potentially dangerous items which you need to watch out for.  Keeping within the aisle marking tape will help people avoid any potential dangers and be able to quickly travel through the area without getting hurt.

Choosing Your Aisle Marking Tape

There are many different types of aisle marking tape available.  Most facilities will choose different colors for different areas to help alert people to hazards or just to let them know they’ve entered a different area.  If, for example, your facility is broken up into several different sections, each with its own set of machinery, you’ll want to let people know.  Using different colored aisle marking tape is a simple way to do just that.

While each facility will be unique, you can have standards throughout your particular building or even if the company has several factories it is possible to coordinate across geographic locations.  This will ensure that everyone is safe no matter which facility they are working in at a given time.  Any coordination between areas or facilities should be done before the actual aisle tape is chosen so everyone can be sure to be on the same page.

Benefits of Aisle Marking Tape

In addition to helping people get from place to place quickly, easily and safely there are also a few other benefits of having your walkways clearly marked with this tape.  If you have materials or parts which are placed in specific areas while they are being used, you can use this type of tape to ensure they are not put in the wrong spot.  It is very inefficient to have a box accidently placed in a walking path, for example, because then it will just have to be moved when it is getting in someone’s way.

This type of tape can be used to mark virtually any area to ensure it is cleared of anything which should not be there.  This helps to eliminate wasted time and keep people safe while traveling through any part of the facility you manage.  There are few other products available which are as simple to use, affordable and still so effective at increasing the safety and productivity of a facility.
