In a busy plant or shop, sometimes it can seem like there are more pallets than people.
It’s important to keep pallets organized to keep productivity at its peak, as well as keep the shop floor clear of pallets that can cause injuries or product and equipment damage.
Once a company has developed a plant floor pallet map, it’s important for the designated locations to be clearly marked so new employees, as well as existing employees, can easily determine where and how pallets are to be stored and used.
Using floor and aisle markings to designate pallet locations is the ideal solution. Using corner markings to show where the pallets should be placed is the most utilized method of organizing pallets.
Because the ideal pallet locations may need to be amended as orders or resources change, using easy to apply and remove floor tape is a better option to painted markings. Whereas painted lines may take as much as two days to be applied, Superior Mark floor tape can be applied, removed and reapplied in minutes. The tape can be removed in one piece, with no leftover residue, making it ideal for Lean and 5S initiatives that require layout flexibility.
InSite Solution’s Superior Mark floor tape is engineered to hold up to heavy industrial traffic. We guarantee that it will outperform other brands. The difference is in the beveled edges and recessed, highway grade adhesive. This attention to design makes Superior Mark Floor Markers the most heavy-duty floor tape available.
Corner markers for pallets come in three shapes: Ts, Ls and Xs.
Corner markers are easier to maintain than full-sized stripes. If one becomes damaged, it can be easily replaced without having to re-do an entire line. No type of floor marking will stand up forever to the continual pounding of a busy pallet or skid area. In these locations, using smaller-sized floor markings makes sense.
We have a great online tool that helps you figure out how many of each shape you need, based on your workspace pallet map. Check out the tool here.
