Why is floor marking an effective option for social distancing?

Social distancing is a major key in slowing the spread of COVID-19, according to the CDC. Major events around the globe are being postponed, museums are shutting their doors to the public, governors have ordered school out of session in the effort to “flatten the curve.”

As employees are still clocking into work and people are making essential errands, it’s important to encourage social distancing with the right tools for the job. Using floor signs, floor shapes, floor marking strips, and floor tape are all ideal ways you can start practicing social distancing.

Extremely Durable

Once you put down social distancing dots or signs, you won’t need to worry about them again. Made from incredibly tough material, our floor markings were designed to survive harsh industrial environments so there will be no cracking or fading even after heavy foot traffic., vehicle traffic, or an unexpected spill.

Clear Messaging

Whether you need to create one-way aisles for shoppers or want the operators in your facility to maintain a healthy distance, we have a large selection of different messaging options to fit your needs. We have floor signs and inline printed tape with and without icons, bilingual options, and if you don’t find the message you need, we are happy to customize any of them at no charge.


All of our floor marking signs, shapes, strips, and tape are made from ultra-thin material that sit smoothly on the floor. It ensures a level walking surface, so no tripping hazard is present and wheels from pallet jacks or shopping carts won’t get snagged.

Your workplace can help to slow down the spread of COVID-19 by enforcing social distancing. Floor markings not only increase the level of safety, but it also provides people with visual cues on how to behave, i.e. sneezing and coughing into a tissue, waiting until called forward, frequent hand washing, and more. Although social distancing is a temporary measure, we do know it is the new normal for the foreseeable future.
