If your business has continued operating during the coronavirus pandemic, you need to be clear with visitors, customers and employees about your social distancing requirements. Visual cues such as health and safety floor tape, signs, and posters are effective tools for reminding people about the 6-foot (or 2-meter) distance they need to keep between themselves, no-handshake greetings, standard handwashing rules, and more. The best place to deploy these reminders is on your industry and shop floors, where they will be seen by most people.
Beyond the Tape: Innovative Floor Markings for Effective Distancing
floor markings for social distancing are available in a range of sizes and designs, allowing you to clearly communicate the 2m distance that you advise staff, visitors or customers to keep from each other. They can be placed at entrances to the facility, at checkout lines and in queues and are easy to see on a variety of indoor floor surfaces such as vinyl, parquet, linoleum and concrete. They are low-profile to prevent tripping and come in various colours that contrast against your existing flooring surface. For example, supermarkets traditionally use light-coloured flooring to make customers feel comfortable and our 2m social distance marks will stand out clearly against these surfaces.
Social distancing marks can be combined with other markings that help to organise the flow of traffic around your workplace or store, such as one-way aisle systems, directional arrows and more. They can also be paired with signage that describes your current CDC-recommended practices, such as “Thank you for practicing 6 feet of social distancing”. All of these products are designed for heavy traffic areas and are made to withstand regular cleaning and to be easily moved should legislation change.
