Industrial Floor Tape vs. Industrial Floor Paint
The average factory in the U.S. is 600,000 square feet. Many of them contain between 5,000 to 12,000 feet of safety & organizational lines (most of them painted.) BUT... more companies than ever are choosing industrial floor tape over paint...and for good reasons.
- Floor tape requires no extra install equipment
- Floor painting can require a range of additional tools and products, from rollers to industrial paint sprayers.
|Floor Tape||Floor Paint|
|Dry Time||Immediate||3-8 hrs|
|Cure Time||None||72+ hrs|
Waiting for paint to dry can cause significant downtime and can sometimes shut down entire factory floors for days, often times resulting in large monetary losses and delayed workflow. Industrial floor tapes bond immediately after install, without having to wait for paint to dry or having to clear the air of toxic, dangerous fumes.
- Enhanced protection against forklifts, pallet jacks, trucks, foot traffic, and chemicals
- Extremely easy to clean
- Maintains appearance and durability over long periods
- Fades and discolors quickly
- Can be easily worn down by heavy foot traffic or industrial equipment
- Chips and cracking will appear over time, requiring repainting

More companies are switching to industrial floor tape instead of floor paint
Many businesses have started using industrial floor tape in place of paint because it’s easy to install (so it causes very little downtime) and it’s durable. It can hold up to foot and vehicle traffic, it doesn’t fade, and it’s easy to clean. See why you should consider industrial floor tape in this infographic. Then share it with colleagues or those in your facility in charge of floor marking. A durable, professional tape can make your facility safe, organized, and efficient.
