Fire Lane Compliance
Fire lane compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is mandatory if you own a parking lot. ADA fire lane compliance supports the safety and arrangement of your parking lot.
Here are some tips to ensure fire lane compliance for your parking lot according to the ADA regulations.
Fire Lane Curb Painting
Fire lane maintenance in your parking lot guarantees safety in both your designated parking and non-parking areas. There must be markings on the pavement or curb as well as the upright signage at the fire lane place in your parking lot.
The curb must be painted red with reflective, 3-inch minimum block lettering establishing that this is a “Fire Lane – No Parking”. These words must be clear and visible enough to be seen by a vehicle.
Red curb painting prevents vehicles from parking in fire lanes or no parking zones. Blue curbs enforce parking for disabled parking, while the yellow and green curbs are used to indicate the visitors/timed parking and loading zone areas.
Fire Lane signage requirements for your parking lot
Fire lane signage requirements for your parking lot play a significant role when it comes to fire safety and other emergencies. The fire lanes for your parking lot must be properly and clearly marked with paint or signage. The color is normally red. You can also add further metal signage where necessary to indicate the fire lane area.
The fire lane areas grant fire trucks and all other emergency vehicles quick access to the building when there is an emergency. Hence, for your fire lane to meet the requirements, it must be clearly marked where necessary around the perimeter of your business and must have visible fire lane signage. The reason for this is to keep unlawful vehicles from parking in a fire lane for the safety of everyone using the property together with employees and those in your business.

Concrete and Rubber Wheel Stops
Protecting your property is always important. Property damage can occur by vehicles in the parking lot by accidentally running into buildings, walls, other vehicles, sidewalks, fences, etc. Once wheel stops are installed you will notice fewer accidents resulting in the type of damage that will occur from rogue vehicles. Wheelstops must be installed properly to ensure the safety of pedestrians as well as other vehicles. When installed properly in the parking stall, the stop should be completely covered by the vehicle occupying the space. Once space is unoccupied the wheelstop can actually turn into a tripping hazard, thus requiring extra precaution to be taken to ensure the additional safety for the patrons to your parking area. Wheel stops should be painted or have reflectors installed so that they contrast with their surroundings in order to help prevent tripping by pedestrians walking in the parking area when a vehicle is not parked in the area. Proper lighting can also help with safety issues regarding the wheel stops.
The type of wheel stops you install should be dictated by the types of vehicles parking in your lot. For instance, if you are dealing with passenger vehicle traffic, a concrete or rubber parking block should work exceptionally well. However, if your parking area caters to large trucks or 18-Wheelers then concrete wheelstops will break apart in no time as they cannot stand up to the pounding they will endure under the wheels of the truck. You will need to look at having steel wheel stops installed which will last forever as they are indestructible. No matter the types of wheelstops you choose, we are ready to professionally and properly install the wheel stops in your parking lot.
