Benefits of Warehouse Walkways

Warehouse walkways offer several benefits for both safety and operational efficiency in a warehouse or industrial setting. Here are some of the key advantages:

  1. Improved Safety:

    • Preventing Accidents: Warehouse walkways provide designated paths for pedestrians, helping to reduce the risk of collisions with moving equipment like forklifts or pallet jacks.
    • Minimizing Slips and Falls: Well-marked and slip-resistant walkways reduce the likelihood of slips and falls, especially in areas prone to spills or moisture.
  2. Enhanced Workflow:

    • Efficient Movement: By designating specific routes for pedestrians, you can ensure that workers can move about the warehouse more efficiently, reducing congestion and delays.
    • Organised Traffic: Clearly marked walkways help organise the flow of foot traffic, preventing bottlenecks and chaos in busy areas.
    • Separation from Machinery: Keeping walkways separate from equipment pathways ensures that pedestrians are not obstructed by machinery or goods being transported.
  3. Productivity and Time Savings:

    • Faster Navigation: Workers can find their way more quickly and easily through the warehouse, saving time and improving overall productivity.
    • Reduced Downtime: With fewer accidents and less congestion, there is less downtime due to injuries and delays.
  4. Compliance and Liability Reduction:

    • Regulatory Compliance: Compliance with safety regulations and standards is crucial. Clearly marked walkways help ensure compliance with workplace safety laws.
    • Liability Reduction: By implementing proper walkways, a company can reduce its liability in case of accidents or injuries within the warehouse.
  5. Organisation and Cleanliness:

    • Visual Organisation: Clearly defined walkways contribute to a more organised and aesthetically pleasing warehouse environment.
    • Cleanliness: Walkways can be used to separate pedestrian traffic from areas with dust, debris, or spills, helping to maintain a cleaner workspace.
  6. Employee Morale:

    • Safety and Comfort: Providing safe and designated walking paths can boost employee morale, as workers feel valued and safe in their workplace.
    • Reduced Stress: Workers can concentrate on their tasks rather than constantly watching for moving equipment, reducing stress levels.
  7. Flexibility and Adaptability:

    • Easy Changes: Marking walkways with paint or tape allows for easy adjustments to accommodate changing workflow or storage needs.
    • Temporary Designations: Walkways can be temporarily modified for special events or projects.
  8. Clear Communication:

    • Visual Cues: Walkways can be used to convey important messages or directions through floor markings or signage.
    • Emergency Routes: Walkways can serve as designated emergency exit routes, ensuring quick and safe evacuation in case of emergencies.

Installing walkways in warehouses is really important for the safety of pedestrians. Having designated walkways provides protection for your staff and reduces the risk of collisions and hazards and creates safety barriers.

In warehouses, there will be a range of equipment, machinery and vehicles, such as pallet racking and forklifts, so it is necessary to comply with regulations to create a safe working environment and reduce the risk of injury.

Walkways with signage that clearly shows the layout of the industrial building is very important for pedestrian safety as it creates barriers between the pedestrians and vehicles.

The advantages of having a clear layout in a factory also means that staff can get to each aisle with ease and it imporves the appearance of the area.

Thermoplastic Markings for Warehouse Walkway

We also install thermoplastic markings for pedestrian walkways. These markings can be applied in the designs of your choice.

We apply pedestrian symbols, arrows, writing as well as footprints and many other designs. Please let us know if you require extra thermoplastic markings.

These may be installed in one of two methods; either melting preformed markings onto the existing surface or pouring out molten thermoplastic in the shapes required. 

Along the sides of warehouse walkways, we will install thermoplastic linings to make the footpath look neater and clearer. These can be applied in contrasting colours and can be personalised to your own personal preferences.

We work hard to ensure that our clients are happy with the completed walkways and will add any extras which the client needs to ensure they are pleased with the end result.

We will alter our designs and specifications in order to meet your individual needs and requirements, so please do not hesitate to speak to a team member regarding your requests and specific budget.

Internal Line Markings Near Me

We carry out internal line marking in warehouses across the United Kingdom. When carrying out floor marking indoors, we may use two different methods depending on our clients' requirements.

Using preformed markings might be used for things like footprints and pedestrian symbols. These are pre cut cold plastic materials which are laid out into the desired place and heated up until they melt onto the surface.

The second method is to heat the thermoplastic prior to the installation in a boiler until the thermoplastic reaches 220 degrees. The molten thermoplastic will then be poured out into the correct places using specialist tools.

This method is often done to install the lines of walkways, but may also be used for symbols and writing too. 

The price of internal line marking can vary depending a number of factors. One of the biggest factors which affects the price is the size of your warehouse.

Obviously if you've got a big warehouse you will generally require more line markings to go around the walkways. Since more materials will need to be used to apply the line-markings, the price of installation will be more expensive.

If you decide to have the surface painted first, the price will rise again. Extra graphics like footprints and pedestrian symbols will also cause the cost to alter.

If you're looking for a cheaper option when installing the warehouse walkways, we would recommend simply having to lines installed at least 1.2m apart to outline the footpath.

Warehouse Floor Striping

We are local experts in warehouse floor striping across the UK and we install lines in a number of different colours. The line-markings may be installed over painted surfaced in contrasting colours to define warehouse walkways and the surrounding areas.

What are Warehouse Walkways?

Warehouse walkways are designed to create a safe pathway for employees to use when walking through a factory or industrial building.

Pedestrians will often come into contact with forklift machinery which can cause accidents if there are not rules and regulations in place. Installing a pedestrian walkway means that vehicle traffic can be in one space and pedriants can use the pathway.

What Type of Surface can it be Installed on?

We can install our paint and line marking on a range of factory floors, icluding concrete and tarmac surfaces.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Minimum Walkway Width in a Factory?

The minimum walkway width in a factory is 1.2m.

Warehouses and factories must meet up to particular safety standards like the minimum width of a walkway, so that the workers remain safe.

A factory walkway width of 1.2m allows two people to walk past each other side by side safely; if someone has to step out of the pathway to let another worker by, the factory would not be seen as a safe environment.

Safety is a key feature in any working environment and it is a company's main job to ensure all employees are safe when carrying out their work.

If you don't meet specific safety standards and someone gets injured within the workplace, the company may be held responsible, which will then have a negative effect on the business.

Are the Warehouse Walkways Slip-Resistant?

Yes, most walkways in warehouses are slip resistant. They are made from a material that is designed to grip the floor and provide traction.

How are the Warehouse Walkways Used?

Warehouse walkways are installed so that individuals can access different areas of the warehouse, transport goods and materials and create safe environments for pedestrians.
