FloorSignage Unveils DriveOn Graphics, the Industry’s Only Large Format Print Media Designed to Support Both Vehicular and Pedestrian Traffic
Sunbury, Ohio – FloorSignage, LLC, launches DriveOn Graphics, the world’s first large format print media designed to be applied to surfaces that support both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. DriveOn Graphics is the first retro-reflective digital print media created with drivers in mind. DriveOn graphics can be applied directly to streets, parking lots and driveways, providing motorists with clear visual communication. This one-of-a-kind material offers full-color floor graphics that will withstand the rigors of vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
“Placing graphics on exterior walkways was a radical idea in our industry in 2013 when we launched AlumiGraphics Grip,” said Scott Wieclaw, president of FloorSignage, LLC. “Thanks to our product, AlumiGraphics Grip, outdoor ground and floor graphics are now widely used around the world and are known to be the most reliable solution for graphics on concrete, asphalt and brick, resistant to weather conditions and foot traffic,” says Wieclaw.
“We began R&D efforts for DriveOn Graphics shortly after the launch of AlumiGraphics Grip, in response to customers asking if our material could withstand vehicular traffic,” continued Wieclaw. “The missing piece of the puzzle was to develop a large format print media product that would combine the ease and utility of a pedestrian use graphic with the strength and durability of a road marking for vehicles. said Wieclaw.
Until recently, stenciled painted graphics and thermoplastic products were the only options for graphics placed on parking lot and driveway surfaces. “DriveOn Graphics offers a better alternative to these current methods which suffer from design limitations, are difficult and expensive to implement, and are not easily removed,” Wieclaw said.
“Not just an exterior floor graphic, DriveOn Graphics delivers vehicle durability,” says Wieclaw. “When ground graphic materials are used on surfaces that support vehicular traffic, such as parking garages, crosswalks, traffic lanes, and transit stations, most graphics cannot withstand to the forces to which they are subjected by the movement of vehicles. Some manufacturers claim that their graphic materials can withstand limited vehicular traffic, but the truth is that these materials are thin and soft, making them susceptible to damage,” according to Wieclaw. “DriveOn Graphics provides dimensional stability, designed to resist the kinetic friction that occurs between a tire and the graphic material,” Wieclaw said.
“DriveOn Graphics solves the common problem faced by graphic materials used in areas serving both pedestrian and vehicular traffic, by providing a retro-reflective, non-slip product for pedestrians, reducing the risk of accidents. DriveOn Graphic’s retro-reflectivity results in a material that is highly visible day or night, providing crucial response time for vehicle drivers,” said Wieclaw.
DriveOn graphics can be cut out and used as turn arrows, symbols and other traffic and curb control messages. The material is matte white and compatible with latex and UV flatbed and hybrid printers. Made in the USA, DriveOn Graphics offers easy, heat-free installation and is sold in 44″ x 35′ rolls to vendors.
“This new material opens the door wide to endless uses, from parking lot traffic markings to creative cross-promotion for brands that can now easily access endless amounts of available surface. Think branded parking spaces or sponsored curbside collection areas and electric vehicle charging stations. There are no limits to the uses of DriveOn Graphics,” says Wieclaw.
