Case Study: Enhancing Parking Accessibility and Safety with 4M Floors UK


Disabled bays clearly marked by 4m floors UK

At 4M Floors UK, we're passionate about delivering innovative resin flooring solutions that not only look fantastic but also prioritise safety and functionality. Recently, we had the opportunity to put this commitment into action by tackling a car park refurbishment project in Ireland. The project aimed to bring clarity to the disabled parking bays, ensuring they were not just visible but unmistakable, and to transform the support columns into vivid guides that ensured safe passage for every visitor.

Key Needs: Visibility, Safety, and Long-Lasting Performance

The car park was in need of an overhaul. Worn-out flooring, unclear markings, and a lack of visual distinction for disabled bays were creating challenges for both car park operators and users. Our goal was to address these concerns through a multi-pronged approach:

  • Enhanced Visibility: Make disabled parking bays easily identifiable for effortless location.

  • Safety Improvements: Increase navigational ease and minimize potential hazards within the car park.

  • Durability and Quality: Replace old flooring with high-quality, long-lasting solutions that can withstand heavy traffic and the elements.

Overcoming Challenges: A Collaborative Approach

Existing Floor Condition: The initial assessment revealed a concrete flooring substrate, requiring careful removal of old layers to create a smooth, level surface for the new coatings.

Operational Continuity: Minimising disruption to car park operations was paramount. We worked closely with the client to develop a detailed plan, ensuring efficient execution within designated timeframes.

Solutions Implemented: Expertise and High-Performance Materials

Preparation and Planning:  A thorough site assessment was conducted to determine material selection and project scheduling. Open communication and collaboration with the client ensured minimal disruption.

Ground Preparation: We utilized specialised grinding equipment to expertly remove old layers, creating a clean and even surface for optimal adhesion of the new coatings.

Application of Deckshield Rapide ID:  This high-performance resin flooring system, chosen for its exceptional durability and weather resistance, was applied in a vibrant blue and white color scheme to clearly mark disabled parking bays.

Marking with QD Linemarker: Crisp and clear disabled parking symbols and column markings were applied using a specialised QD Linemarker. This ensured precise lines and vibrant colors for optimal visibility and aesthetics.

Safety and Aesthetic Enhancements: Painting the support columns a bright yellow served a dual purpose. It enhanced visibility within the car park, promoting safer navigation, while also adding a touch of vibrancy to the overall space.

A Rewarding Outcome: Improved Function and Aesthetics

Customer Satisfaction:  The client was thrilled with the final results. The improved visibility of disabled parking bays, enhanced safety measures, and overall aesthetic improvements were met with great feedback.

Project Impact:  Beyond client satisfaction, the project has a positive impact on all car park users. The clear markings and improved visibility contribute to a more user-friendly space, particularly for those who rely on designated disabled parking areas.

At 4M Floors UK, we're proud to have delivered this successful car park refurbishment project. It exemplifies our commitment to providing high-quality resin flooring solutions that enhance functionality, prioritise safety, and create a visually appealing environment.
