The RapidShield team at Universal Highways has been working with a leading supermarket chain to improve the way storage bay lines and safety symbols are applied in its distribution centres. The result has been operational cost savings, performance and life time benefits and a more efficient, safer workplace.

In a first contract, 5000m of yellow bay lines and dozens of walkman logos, zebra crossings and safety zones were created at one of the supermarket's DCs in the Midlands, where the local EHO had judged that many bay lines were too feint and had to be repainted. This was a 24/7 operation where disruption to work patterns and bays out of service for an excessive time was not acceptable.

Alan Phillips at Universal Highways says: "We were able to remove old lines, prepare the floor, re-apply new lines and hand the floor back to the customer within a few hours of closure." Once applied to a prepared floor, RapidShield is cured instantly by a portable unit that emits UV-light, turning the coating into a solid film which creates a strong bond to the substrate, A durable, non-slip, gloss or matt finish with good chemical resistance is produced and the floor can be used within minutes.
