Drive Thru Markings
When Drive Thru Markings, pavement markings guide drivers where to line up and space their vehicles while awaiting their food. These lines are an essential safety feature to ensure that cars don’t collide with each other or block the entrance. Over time, however, the striped lines in your drive-thru can fade, causing confusion and minor accidents. This is a clear sign that it’s time for some restriping.
Thermoplastic is an excellent choice for resurfacing parking lots, as it is extremely durable and can withstand the heavy traffic that drive-thrus typically experience. Plus, it is easier to clean compared to other paving materials. In order to apply thermoplastic, you must first properly prepare the surface. This includes removing any dirt, debris, and loose material. It’s also important that the surface is completely dry before applying the striping.
The Art of Durability: Why Drive-Thru Markings Matter
G-FORCE recently had the pleasure of working on a new Walgreens in Arlington Heights, which is near the Dryden Place entrance to Northwest Highway. This location has a northbound drive-thru lane, but the striped direction is incorrect for entering drivers. This leads to confusion and could increase the chance of rear-end collisions between the Walgreens exit traffic and the entering traffic from Dryden Place.
