New approach to bay numbering

Floor marking contractor ASG Services was chosen by to install 11,000m of line marking, 788 characters and digits, 112 floor embedded labels, and several hatched blocks at a distribution centre in Worksop, Nottinghamshire – its largest line marking project to date.

The installation included a new technique of bay numbering, developed to enable fork lift operators to identify bay locations more quickly and from a greater distance.

ASG’s floor embedded barcode system was installed at the site as the preferred method of floor location identification. It involves aluminium plated floor labels, complete with barcode and eye readable data, which can uphold high scan verification rates.

Tony Gresty, managing director, said: “This method of location identification requires a specialist form of installation and does not come at a budget price. It is, however, among the most durable available and capable of withstanding the daily assault of forklifts and pallets.”
