Floor - Warning markings for pedestrian and machine traffic
Not only vertical obstacles, such as posts or door edges, are a potential danger point for accidents.
Those that are horizontal, such as trip hazards or fall edges, must also be marked accordingly. Practical tests showed that safety signs on the floor are more likely to be seen and thus work significantly better than those placed on the wall. In order to use this knowledge to increase safety, we at SFS offer floor – warning markings.
These include, on the one hand, the classic marking tapes, which are primarily intended to bring structure to production halls. These can be driven over by forklifts and their colouring shows a clear demarcation. On the other hand, we offer anti-slip edge markings to secure stairs and other tripping and falling hazards.
The mixture of black and yellow serves as a classic warning colour combination for fixed and immovable obstacles, red and white for movable ones. The ASR A2.1 and ASR A1.3 provide guidelines for the marking of danger zones and obstacles. To learn more about the standards, click on the corresponding guideline.
