Handicap Compliance (ADA) Americans with Disabilities Act
Is your parking lot in compliance with current ADA Federal Laws?
Every business owner and property manager is responsible (by Federal Law) to be compliant with ADA laws. These laws differ by state which can make it more confusing to the business owner. American Spray Tech (AST) can assist you in making sure that your parking lot areas meet these guidelines. AST can provide and install handicap signage, provide handicap space markings, provide access aisle striping, incorporate proper ADA stencils, mats and other ADA materials.
Pavement markings associated with ADA compliance, such as the size of a standard parking space, the size of a van accessible space, the access aisle requirements, the crosswalks and associated ADA signs and post each have strict guidelines to be followed. AST will help you evaulate your current installation and advise you regarding a correction if needed.
Typical State ADA Signage Requirements
Fire Lane and No Parking Areas
Do you have problems with people parking in No Parking or Fire Lane Areas?
Parking restrictions are state mandated. However, many no parking areas are overlooked due to poor markings. We also realize that many drivers are totally aware, but still choose to park illegally. These areas are restricted by state laws for the safety of the public. No business owner wants to deal with a tragedy. Even worse, would be to need emergency personnel and have their access limited by illegal parking.
Highly visible restricted area line markings can only help to alert drivers of these restricted parking areas. Restricted parking areas for North Carolina per regulation 20-162 include:
"Parking in front of a private driveway, fire hydrant, fire station, intersection of curb lines or fire lane."
(a) No person shall park a vehicle or permit it to stand, whether attended or unattended, upon a highway in front of a private driveway or within 15 feet in either direction of a fire hydrant or the entrance to a fire station, nor within 25 feet from the intersection of curb lines or if none, then within 15 feet of the intersection of property lines at an intersection of highways; provided, that local authorities may by ordinance decrease the distance within which a vehicle may park in either direction of a fire hydrant.
(b) No person shall park a vehicle or permit it to stand, whether attended or unattended, upon any public vehicular area, street, highway or roadway in any area designated as a fire lane. This prohibition includes designated fire lanes in shopping center or mall parking lots and all other public vehicular areas. Provided, however, persons loading or unloading supplies or merchandise may park temporarily in a fire lane located in a shopping center or mall parking lot as long as the vehicle is not left unattended.
American Spray Tech has the capability of using reflective beads in the paint. This increases the visibility of your line markings. This is especially helpful for visibility in low light conditions. This can be beneficial in restricted areas and crosswalk areas at a minimum. Ask us how to incorporate this into your parking lot design.
