Your car park is the first thing a customers sees when they come to visit you, so a well maintained clearly marked car park speaks volumes about your company. After all if you pay attention to detail in your car park, what do they naturally assume of your general attitude to business. The subliminal message is “here is a company that cares about the way they do everything”.
In addition, clean and clear, well planned markings promote customer and employee safety.
We offer the following for any size of car park:
- Line Marking
- Preformed Markings and Signs in a wide range of colours
- Company Logos (custom cut)
- Hydroblast cleaning, gum removal and retexturing
- Construction, Surfacing, Resurfacing
- Street and specialist furniture
- General Maintenance and Patch Repairs
- Winter Maintenance, Snow Clearance, Salt Spreading
Make your car park special:
Do you have clearly marked CUSTOMERS ONLY or VISITOR ONLY spaces as close as possible to the front door? Make them feel welcome, don’t leave them searching for somewhere to park. You want their business, so show them how much you value them.
Do you ban your staff from using customer or visitor spaces to ensure there is always a space for a visiting customer?
If you have one special customer, have you thought about allocating them their own parking space and putting their preformed logo on it?
Have you thought about allocacting individual spaces to your staff? Some customers do this and have numbered or initialled spaces. Some even allow staff to design their own bespoke coloured space. Tina will always remember she has her own Pink space with White Spots if she designed it.

Thermoplastic on asphalt
Hot applied and best suited to asphalt surfaces, it can be used on concrete but should have a tack coat base applied first to offer greater adhesion.
Preformed Thermoplastic on asphalt
This product is very similar in its characteristics to thermo-plastic. It comes in a solid version which is pieced together similar to a jig saw and then heated in the surface.
It may be that your needs are not the conventional type markings that you see day to day on the roads and in marked areas. Thames Hydroblasting can Line Mark the area required to match your own unique specifications.
3 common materials used in Car Parks
Hot applied and best suited to asphalt surfaces, it can be used on concrete but should have a tack coat base applied first to offer greater adhesion. The wear rate is good but can be prone to chipping in colder weather and the depth of the line can become too thick due to too much remarking.
One Pack Epoxy
It is compatible with almost all surfaces and produces a longer lasting, consistent and even wearing line. Used by many road surfacing contractors due to its rapid drying time and ease of application, it can be brush, roller or spray applied for an even higher output.
MMA (Methyl Methacrylate) cold plastic lining system has been specially designed to meet the demands of heavily trafficked areas, such as highway applications, HGV traffic areas such as distribution centres, container terminals and docks; hazardous areas, but laid cold, such as fuel station forecourts, oil refineries & other similar applications.
