Parking Lot Striping And ADA Compliance

Parking Lot Striping And ADA Compliance

Once you’ve made simple or extensive asphalt repairs to your parking lot, we usually recommend seal-coating the entire parking lot to protect it from further damage. It coats the bare asphalt concrete protecting it from weather and traffic damage and increases the longevity of the asphalt. Once you do this, you will need to re-stripe your parking lot.

In the event that you need to re-striping on the asphalt, you need to ask your contractor to re-evaluate your layout. Since the last time you had your parking lot striped, changes to the American Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliance may have occurred. A new layout based on the current specifications will be needed if any changes have taken place. This is extremely important for two reasons; one, for the accessibility of the disabled patrons to your establishment, and two, avoiding costly fines and inspections.Your contractor should be extremely familiar with the ADA codes and help you to reorganize your striping to bring it up to code. Let us know if we can help you with any of these services. We are experienced and strive to make this processes as straightforward as possible.

Below is table of the accessible spaces required for the number of stalls you have on your property. There are more specifications involved such as required width of accessibility lanes, marking, signage and colors.
