Are your parking lot’s fire lane markings up to date? Fire lanes aren’t only important for compliance purposes; they also play a critical role in safety. In the event of an emergency, professionally marked fire lanes give fire engines and emergency vehicles unobstructed entry to your building. With fire lane striping services from G-FORCE™, you can rest assured knowing that your fire lane pavement markings are visibly clear and compliantly marked.
Fire Lane Parking Markings
Fire lane marking requirements may differ depending on your city and state’s fire codes and guidelines. A pre-inspection by your fire marshal is encouraged to ensure that you have all of the information you need to stay compliant.
And, even if you were compliant at one point, it doesn’t mean you are now. Fire lane painting and restriping is a crucial part of your parking lot maintenance. Fire marshals can issue fines for chipped or aging paint that makes the fire lane hard to see.
Fire Lane Striping Details
At a minimum, you can expect to need clearly labeled striping and signage that reads, “FIRE LANE – NO PARKING.” Many municipalities require a combination of pavement and curb painting to ensure the fire lane parking area stays clear. Other regulations can come into play depending on your location, including the following:
- Fire lane area and width
- Distance to building
- Marking and visibility
- Height available above fire lane
Regardless of your fire lane striping requirements, you can rest assured that the experts at your nearest G-FORCE™ will ensure you’re staying compliant with local guidelines in your area.
