Where Is Floor Marking Tape Used?
Floor marking tape is used wherever there are hazards or to create aisles and spaces. Businesses across the UK use these tapes for a variety of different reasons; wherever you need to segregate stock or warn of its hazardous nature, floor tape can help.
How Is Floor Marking Tape Applied?
Floor marking tape can be applied in a number of ways. However, the recommended method is through a floor tape applicator. The process is to:
1) Clean and dry the floor.
2) Sketch out a guide of the tape using something like chalk.
3) Use the applicator to ensure lines stay straight. We’ve discussed this topic in detail with our blog post ‘How to Use a Tape Applicator Properly’.
