How EverLine Coatings Is Helping Ontario Businesses Meet the AODA Requirements

EverLine Coatings line painting services for Ontario businesses meeting AODA requirements.

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) requires businesses to remove barriers to make it easier for people with disabilities to better access their community and workplaces. Becoming an accessible business and promoting accessibility isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s smart—for businesses of all sizes!

Are you a property manager or business owner who needs to make your property and parking lot AODA approved? With the expertise of the EverLine Coatings & Services team, you can implement lasting solutions. Read on to learn how EverLine can help your business meet AODA requirements with custom stenciling services

Create Accessible Parking with Lasting Line Striping and Stenciling 

Meet Accessibility Requirements

  • Accessible parking spaces must be clearly marked with the International Symbol of Accessibility visible and in proximity to your commercial building’s entrance. 
  • The dimensions of accessible parking spaces should be wider than standard ones to ensure room for vehicles with wheelchair lifts and ramps. A 12-feet-wide (3.54 meters) by 18-feet-long (5.48 meters) space with a 5-foot (1.52 meters) adjacent aisle will warrant adequate space is available and ensures easy access. 
  • The number of accessible spaces you must have in your commercial lot is proportionate to the total number of spaces in your parking area. Your local regulations will give you the specifics. 

Minimum Number of Parking Spaces

Off-street parking facilities must have a minimum number of parking spaces for the use of persons with disabilities. This includes requirements such as: 

  • One parking space for the use of persons with disabilities, which meets the requirements of a Type A (van accessible) parking space, where there are 12 parking spaces or fewer.
  • Four percent of the total number of parking spaces for the use of persons with disabilities, where there are between 13 and 100 parking spaces. 
  • Additional requirements are in place for larger lots and proportionate to the above.

Address Maintenance Issues

Before lot striping begins, address any maintenance problems to ensure your lot is safe and attractive. EverLine Coatings & Services can help you deal with cracks and potholes in order to maintain the integrity of your lot. 

Design an Efficient Parking Lot Layout

Ensure traffic flow by planning clear line markings to direct drivers. Get the best use of space by choosing the optimal parking angle. And include your accessible spaces near your entrance for maximum convenience. 

Line Striping

Worn-out line markings can lead to liability issues, dim your lot’s looks, and make it tough to navigate. Ensure you have a safe, great looking parking lot with EverLine’s durable, precise, custom line striping that makes navigating your lot a breeze. This low-maintenance, long-lasting line striping saves you time, money, and hassles. 

Parking Lot Signs

Well-designed signs make it easy for people to find their way around your commercial property. They’ll know where to park and how to get into your building. EverLine improves your lot’s safety and traffic flow by creating customized, clear signs that are easy to spot. 

Custom Stenciling

You can communicate your business’s message clearly with custom stenciling by EverLine Coatings & Services. Incorporate branding, artwork, and messaging to your customers in your parking lot or garage. From crosswalks to brand messaging, custom stenciling personalizes your lot with symbols, logos, and more. 

At EverLine Coatings & Services, we know that customers judge a business by how the property looks. If we are repainting or adding a new stencil that doesn’t quite match the old, we won’t just paint over the old line markings. We’ll blackout the old marks first so the new lines are clean and stand out. 

Clearly marked designated parking spaces

AODA-compliant spaces are easily spotted when clearly marked by the pros at EverLine Coatings.
