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.

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.

Floor Paint
