This latest Insite Solutions patent for a proprietary protective floor sign device improves the durability and longevity of visual cues.
YOUNGSVILLE, NC, USA, August 24, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Insite Solutions (DBA Stop-Painting.com) announces the recent issue of U.S. Patent No. 11,373,561 B1 to inventor and managing company director Cliff Lowe. The patent covers the proprietary design of the company’s Perimeter Protective Device for Floor Signs, a self-adhesive protective border that is installed around the outer edge of a floor sign. This device creates a thicker protective barrier with tapered edges on the inside and outside to guide items and traffic over the floor sign edge to decrease impact force, improving the longevity of the floor sign.
“With a quick internet search in 2005, there was one beveled edge floor tape on the market. In 2022, there are over 24 websites promoting beveled edge floor tape,” Lowe said. “Beveled edges mean longer-lasting tape. Floor signs, however, are die-cut or laser-cut to produce the various shapes available, which creates a 90-degree edge that is easily damaged by industrial traffic.”
A pallet being dragged across that edge, much like a snowplow going down the road, creates a force that can damage sign edges, reducing overall longevity.
“In that same scenario,” Lowe explains, “instead of meeting a 90-degree edge, imagine the pallet meets an edge at our proprietary angle. That angle deflects some of that energy, allowing the floor signs to withstand damage and deterioration better than traditional floor signs. With this new 561 Patent, a beveled edge protector is manufactured to fit around any floor sign—and is customizable to suit any size or shape necessary—reducing applied forces for improved longevity.”
