Clear. Visible. Safe

A guide to safe social distancing

 
Line marking and floor signalling has been around since we can remember, and it’s no different from social distancing. It’s all about creating clear, visible and safe floor markings to help people keep a 2-meter distance apart. It’s hard to know what that looks like without a guide which is why floor treatments such as tapes, floor markers and mats are a great visual guide of distance and keeping people conscious of the 2-meter rule.
If you need more help and advice after reading our article, then talk to our Technical Advisors Monday – Friday, 8:00-17:30 on 01 6725 180. They are more than happy to help you. If you have any questions on our service, please check our Service Update page.
