Why You Should Be Using Reflective Tapes for Your Business

Leave a Comment

Reflective tape is a strong and durable adhesive that provides a great solution for clearly marking areas or objects. This pressure-sensitive, engineering grade tape is easy to see and stands up to adverse weather conditions such as heat and moisture. With new regulations requiring businesses to arrange their spaces to allow for social distancing, restaurants and bars can utilize reflective tape to differentiate between outdoor waiting and eating areas.

Key Benefits to Using Reflective Tapes For Your Business

There are many benefits of using reflective tapes for your restaurant or bar. You can add reflective tape to designate additional outdoor seating, or a parklet, in front of your business, creating a space for customers to sit and enjoy the surrounding neighborhood street life.

Since parklets and expanded outdoor seating are often placed in parking lots, it is important to use reflective tape to mark off those areas so that drivers know not to park or drive there. Using reflective tape on soft-hit posts is an ideal way to mark off pedestrian walkways in these areas, allowing for traffic control and increased visibility, especially at night.

Since all businesses are required to follow social distancing guidelines, reflective tape can mark where tables and chairs will go in outdoor seating areas as well indicate spots where customers will wait to be seated.
