Glass Beads

Glass beads are used in parking lot striping to make the lines more visible at night. They reflect light from headlights back to drivers, enhancing safety by clearly marking lanes and pedestrian areas. These beads can be mixed with paint or applied on top of wet paint, and their durability allows them to withstand traffic and weather conditions.

Commonly Asked Questions

How long does paint take to dry?

There are a lot of factors that can affect this, such as the temperature, wind, humidity, number of coats of striping paint applied, the type of paint used, and more. That said, Enright Asphalt can work with you to identify the best schedule to minimize or even eliminate any obstruction to your usual business operations.

How often should I re-stripe my parking lot?

Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to re-stripe your parking lot every 18 months or as needed. This ensures that your pavement markings are bright and visible at all times. However, there are many factors to consider such as the climate, the amount of traffic that passes through it, and the kind of paint you used for your last striping.

Can you stripe at night?

We at Enright Asphalt know that time is money. And we know how important it is to avoid or at least minimize any possible disruptions to your business operations. We will work with you on scheduling to reduce downtime of your parking lot.

Can you stripe in the rain?

Since both parking lot sealcoating and paint rely on evaporation for drying and curing, striping your parking lot in the rain will not be possible. We keep a close watch on weather forecasts for any project we do to provide the best possible result. If there’s any chance of rain, we’ll work with you to find another suitable schedule for us to complete the project.

Can I Strip My Own Lot?

While it is possible to stripe your own parking lot, it is generally best to hire a professional striping company for optimal results. Striping a parking lot requires expertise, specialized equipment, and knowledge of local regulations and standards. Hiring professionals ensures that the striping is done accurately, with consistent markings and appropriate materials. They have the experience to efficiently plan the layout, execute precise striping, and achieve durable and long-lasting results. Additionally, professionals are aware of safety considerations and can ensure proper visibility and adherence to accessibility requirements. If you have a large or complex parking lot, or if you're unsure about the process, it is strongly recommended to seek the services of a professional striping company to ensure the best outcome.

What color is parking lot striping?

Parking lot striping typically uses white or yellow paint for the markings. The choice of color may vary depending on local regulations or specific requirements. These colors provide good visibility and contrast against the asphalt or concrete surface of the parking lot, making it easier for drivers to navigate and park their vehicles safely. Blue paint it normally reserved for marking stalls and unloading areas for people with disabilities. Finally, some cities require curbs to be painted red to mark off fire lanes. It's important to check with local authorities or consult a professional striping company to ensure compliance with any specific color regulations in your area.

What equipment is used for line striping?

The equipment used to strip a parking lot depends on the size of the parking lot, the type of surface being stripped, and the complexity of the striping. Here are some common equipment used for striping a parking lot in Denver:

Striping Machine: A striping machine is a specialized piece of equipment designed to apply paint or thermoplastic marking material to asphalt or concrete surfaces. It typically consists of a spray gun, paint or thermoplastic tank, and a set of wheels or casters to guide the machine along the asphalt.

Power Washer: A power washer is used to clean the pavement before the striping process. This is necessary to remove any debris, dirt, and grease from the lot to ensure the paint adheres properly.

Blowers: Blowers are used to remove dirt and dust from the your lot after the power washing process. This is necessary to ensure that the pavement surface is free from any debris or dirt that could interfere with the striping process.

Chalk Line Reel: A chalk line reel is used to create straight lines on the pavement surface. The chalk line reel dispenses chalk onto the pavement surface, which is then used as a guide for the striping machine.

Stencils: Stencils are used to create specific shapes or letters. They can be made from plastic or metal and are typically used to mark handicap spaces, directional arrows, or specific wording.

What are the different kinds of traffic paint?

The type of paint used for striping in Denver depends on the specific needs of the project, but the most common types of paint used for parking lot striping include:

  1. Water-Based Acrylic Paint: This type of paint is the most commonly used. It is cost-effective, easy to apply, and dries quickly. Water-based acrylic paint is also durable and long-lasting, making it a popular choice for most parking lot projects.
  2. Oil-Based Paint: Oil-based paint is another type of paint used for parking lot striping. It is known for its durability and resistance to wear and tear, making it ideal for high-traffic areas. However, it can take longer to dry and may emit stronger fumes compared to water-based acrylic paint.
  3. Epoxy Paint: Epoxy paint is a two-part coating system that offers superior durability and resistance to chemicals and abrasion. It is more expensive than other types of paint, but it is ideal for areas that receive heavy traffic or exposure to chemicals.
  4. Thermoplastic Paint: Thermoplastic paint is a heated plastic material that is applied to the pavement surface. It is known for its durability and resistance to wear and tear, making it ideal for high-traffic areas. However, it requires specialized equipment for application and is more expensive than other types of paint.

When choosing, it is essential to consider factors such as durability, weather resistance, visibility, and whether the lot lines are new or a re-striping project. It is also important to check local regulations to ensure compliance with lot striping and pavement marking safety standards.

How big is a parking stall?

The size of a parking stall can vary depending on the jurisdiction and the purpose of the parking lot. However, the standard size for a parking stall in Colorado is 9 feet wide by 18 feet long. This size allows enough space for most vehicles to park safely while also allowing enough space for drivers to maneuver in and out of the stall. It is worth noting that some jurisdictions may have different minimum sizes for parking stalls, particularly for accessible or handicapped parking spaces.
