The beginning of the end for floor paint?
The benefits of using floor tape over floor paint, for your safety and organizational lines are as evident as ever. As more companies move towards floor tape and paint becomes a thing of the past, the challenge becomes which tape to buy? Deciding which floor tape is the right one for you however, can be a tough decision to make, especially without having a product in hand.

But, we already use floor paint
Some habits can be hard to break, especially when it involves choosing a new product over one you’ve used for years. However, the battle between floor paint and floor tape, is beginning to show the makings of a landslide victory. For starters, paint requires more materials, man hours, and down time while you wait for it dry than floor tape, in some cases up to 72 hours for the paint to dry. Painting your floors is messy and requires more clean up than floor tape. Paint has a shorter life span, so it needs to be re-applied often to be effective and keep operations running safe.

The success of 5S organizational and safety systems throughout several industries has created a movement towards eliminating waste and increasing productivity. Shutting down work areas while you paint, using man hours to paint, instead of their regular job, and the overall frustration caused by the process of painting, are examples of activities your company should be eliminating, not encouraging.
