Stop-Painting.com is the industry leader for floor marking products and safety signs. We research, design and manufacture our own products and our incredibly durable floor tape is the best on the market.
Our BEVELED EDGE keeps heavy traffic and equipment from getting underneath the tape, and instead guides traffic, up and over, the tape. This helps the tape last longer than other floor marking tapes.
Our recessed adhesive and convenient liner make application and pulling up easy and efficient.
Our large inventory of products include rolls of tape, footsteps, pallet corner markers, directional arrows and many more visual cues that increase facility productivity. All products can be customized with messaging, colors, size and even logos.

Painting versus Foor Tape
For many businesses, floor markings are a must for optimum productivity. This means using visual cues, signs and floor markings to direct employees and equipment in the most efficient and safe way, all in an effort to keep waste low and productivity high.
In the past, painting concrete floors in industrial settings was the preferred way to mark floors. This method usually involves shutting down the facility, prepping floors which may involve scraping or blasting, meticulous painting and drying and curing times. The entire process can take up to a week, depending on your manpower and square footage.
Another option is using floor tape. This method is popular because companies frequently change paths or placements of floor markings as workflow needs change. For instance, if a company gets a new piece of equipment that must be added into the workflow, existing equipment is shifted to make room. This will usually create a need for updated floor markings.
In addition to changing floor marking layouts, marked floors in a production facility –whether with paint or tape – are going to experience degradation due to equipment traffic and/or pallet dragging. So planning ahead on how these floors will be marked and maintained is a given to keep safety standards and productivity levels high.
Floor tape can be easily applied, pulled up and reapplied to a new area or pathway or to repair damaged tape – making it a better solution than painting.
Advantages of floor marking over painting lines are:
- Less time for labor and installation
- No costly shutdown during installation
- No need for aggressive treatment of floor before application – which may damage floor
- Ease of modification if lines need to be moved
- Impactful messages can be applied to floor tape increasing the visual instruction value of the markings.
Floor tape is a much more efficient process to implement and maintain.
Once you've decided to use tape to mark your floors, you have to choose what tape to utilize. Most floor marking tape on the market is cheaply produced, costs about $5 a roll and easily stretches and tears.
We believe that using cheap vinyl tape is not the answer for companies looking to be efficient and productive. Our company was built around the idea that there is a better solution for marking floors. Our flagship product, Superior Mark™ floor tape, is the perfect solution. With patented beveled edges and a recessed adhesive, Superior Mark™ tape is more resistant to being pulled up by forklifts or dragging pallets than competing tapes. We manufacture Superior Mark™ tape in-house, using heavy duty PVC, which makes it dirt resistant, easy to clean and makes it easily removed in one piece. Competing tapes have an average of 3 mils thickness, while Superior Mark Tape is 32 mls thick.
