04 Feb Colours in Your Carpark: What Do Different Lines Mean?
Clean cut lines in your Sydney carpark are always a must. On top of that, you have to make sure your colours are right.
Different colours send different messages to your customers and clients and it’s important that these messages are clear.
If they aren’t clear, you could be putting people in danger.
We’ll mark clear, concise lines for your carpark, using the appropriate colours to ensure that there’s no confusion.
Here are the most common colours and what they can be used for.
White lines are by far the most common lines that appear in carparking facilities across Sydney and the rest of Australia.
These lines are usually used to denote standard spaces, as well as lanes, arrows and any other miscellaneous marking.
White is the standard colour for most Sydney carparking facility markings.
Most of the time, if the markings are white, they won’t be signifying anything special. At Sydney Sweep and Scrub, we use white the most.
Red lines will usually be used for some kind of warning or high-risk area of a carpark.
It’s traditionally an eye grabbing colour and therefore, should certainly be used to convey the most important messages in your carpark.
Red can make dangerous areas for pedestrians to avoid, parking restrictions, permit zones and any other important area.
Yellow lines add better visibility to a parking facility and in some cases, are used in place of the standard white markings.
This can be the case in spaces that receive no (or less than desirable) amounts of natural light, so that customers can better see the markings.
Yellow is commonly used to warn drivers about speed bumps and any other speeding deterrents as well.
We usually see blue lines in a Sydney carpark to mark a disabled parking area.
Diagonal blue lines are also used often, to signifiy special zones like bin areas, loading zones and executive spaces.
Whilst it’s an eye catching colour in a grey Sydney carpark, blue is a little more neutral than red so is good for a range of uses.
