Fire Lane Striping for Parking Lots
As mentioned before, apart from marking the area as the fire lane, stenciling are also necessary to show the general public where not to park. The painted stencil in the red striping says “FIRE LANE NO PARKING”.
It is also essential to ensure that the placement of fire lanes is in accordance with the placement of fire hydrants in the area. This usually works when only one side of the roadway has fire lane marking. Keeping the fire lane on the same side of the road where a fire hydrant is present makes it easier to avoid any hindrance by parking. The property owner must maintain the fire lanes at all costs. The areas should be repainted each year or at least when they are not legible anymore.
Curb Painting Fire Lanes
The curbs which are designated to be a part of the fire lane area are required to be marked with red paint. The curb which is designated as a fire lane should have “FIRE LANE NO PARKING” painted on it. It is important to keep in mind that while painting the words “FIRE LANE NO PARKING” on the pavement, all the letters of the sentence should be written in block letters.
