Bournemouth White Lining are specialist contractors. We provide warehouses with easy-to-see luminous line marking. These are a must if you want to make your workplace productive and as efficient as possible.
Every inch should be mapped out well in advance. Such planning can outline materials handling traffic or general footfall areas. However, line marking can also allocate how your warehouse COULD operate. In framing where you want to lay your lines, you’re reconsidering the very foundation of your space. Optimise your workplace and let us seal the deal with our quality finish.
Warehouse line marking is an inexpensive means of hazard prevention. It’s also an effective aid for visual communication. However, in that regard, it comes with its own communicative code – typically in the guise of the colour pallet. Bournemouth White Lining can plan simple, yet effective layouts – complete with colours – to avoid any confusion. After all, you wouldn’t want to risk making things too complicated for your team, would you?
Mark walkways and traffic flow areas in bright yellow lines. These should unmistakeably separate two areas. This way, you provide personnel and drivers with a clear sense of where they’re supposed to be. This is essential given how fast drivers must operate whilst under pressure. Yellow line markings can also be used within a warehouse to allocate many other things – such as parking bays or areas where equipment and personnel should remain clear of.
White lines are an effective means of organising storage. They are often used to segment individual pallet bays in a safe and orderly manner. They don’t delineate danger or high traffic areas – and in fact, act as the opposite.
This eye-catching colour combination is renowned for being associate with danger. It’s typically used within a warehouse to warn of a hazardous area. These can range from perimeter warnings for volatile materials to raised platforms.
Other colours are available for your warehouse but we recommend against this. Why? Simply because you want to make you line colouring as consistent and clear as possible. Expect your workers to make snap decision judgements. If they’re presented with too many colours – each with adjacent implications – it can complicated matters.
Signs, arrows and other symbols can complement all coloured markers. However, they should preferentially be yellow. Iconography is used to convey important information and can clarify areas of concern. For example, they’re usually utilised in loading areas and exits.
