How Floor Graphics Can Help Flatten The Curve

As the world continues to develop solutions to combat the rapidly expanding COVID-19 pandemic, businesses around the globe are coming up with new ways to help flatten the curve. While many people are doing their part and staying home to self-quarantine, many others are risking their health to pursue the products they need to survive.

Grocery stores, restaurants, hospitals, and pharmacies are just a few examples of essential businesses that remain open to support their communities. However, as the number of cases continues to grow, these stores and healthcare facilities are actively encouraging customers to practice social distancing and are using floor graphics to effectively communicate these new guidelines.

The Benefits of Using Floor Graphics

The first major benefit of using floor graphics is their ability to stand out within a busy area. Whether it’s to provide directions, enforce guidelines, or even promote a sale, this method of advertising is a great way to get a customer’s attention. Floor graphics can be digitally printed on a variety of film products, so businesses and healthcare facilities are able to create bold designs using their own branding.

Another benefit of using floor graphics is their ability to effectively communicate a message. For example, after a graphic has successfully caught the attention of a shopper, it can then help direct customers, relay important messages from the store, or communicate reminders, such as social distancing guidelines.

Lastly, one of the biggest benefits of using a floor graphic is its easy installation on a variety of surfaces. These graphics come in a variety of materials, including slip-resistant options, that can be placed on several surfaces such as wood, tile, concrete, or carpets. This added benefit provides a safe and inexpensive way to protect employees and visitors.

Properties of Floor Graphics

Most floor graphics are made of vinyl because it is strong, durable, and cost-efficient. Vinyl materials are perfect for applications like floor graphics because they can withstand the harsh environments where people tend to congregate the most. Not only is it a durable product, but it’s also moisture resistant so it can be used in indoor and outdoor applications.

Perhaps one of vinyl's most unique traits is its various color options thanks to the technologies that allow it to feature bold colors, embossed textures, and distinctive finishes. Furthermore, some vinyl can be coated with removable adhesives to allow businesses and hospitals to use them for temporary purposes without leaving residue behind. In addition, these removable adhesives allow the graphic to be removed and repositioned without damaging the integrity of the design.
