Make Your Sudbury Residential Property AODA-Compliant With Parking Lot Line Painting

The Design of Public Spaces Standards included in the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) outline how parking lots should accommodate those with disabilities. Making your parking lot accessible is a must for all Sudbury property managers. EverLine Coatings offers expert parking lot line painting services that can help your apartment complex, condo, or townhome parking lot meet responsibilities under AODA.

Which Parking Lot AODA Standards Apply?

Your Sudbury property must provide accessible parking for those with disabilities. The layout of these parking areas has to be given great thought. They will, for instance, have to include larger parking spaces, since those who use large mobility aids such as wheelchairs may require extra room to enter and exit their vehicle safely.

The required number of accessible parking spaces is determined by the total number of parking spaces in the lot. You need some Type A parking spaces, which are roomy enough to let a wheelchair user get in and out of their car. Additionally, you may also need to include some Type B spaces. Designed for those who need smaller mobility aids, such as a cane or crutches, Type B spaces are standard-width bays that are reserved for those with a disabled parking permit.

Cross-hatching should indicate the spaces between AODA-compliant parking bays so that cars cannot park there. Drivers may begin to disregard this hatching if it is too faded, so it must be bright and very apparent. It will stay brighter for longer if a high-quality traffic coating, like the TBL Durables markings we can provide, is used to create the lines.

To reduce the risk of accidents, you should also think about how people with disabilities will navigate your parking lot and build safe and vibrant paths and crosswalks that they can use. All these safety features need to be very clearly marked with lines that will stay bright and clear over the long term to ensure they remain useful for pedestrians.

Complete Your AODA-Compliant Parking Lot

If you own or manage an apartment complex, townhouses, or condos in Sudbury, it’s time to get your parking lot AODA-compliant as soon as possible. Working with a parking lot service provider knowledgeable in AODA rules and regulations is the ideal approach. A range of solutions are available to help your facilities meet AODA standards for parking lots. Some of these include:

  • Custom Line Painting and Stenciling: Having crisp, clear lines is one way to adhere to AODA standards for accessibility. You can achieve this with standard parking spaces and accessible stalls. You can also request custom stenciling to ensure your parking lot is properly marked and compliant with regulations.
  • Parking Lot Signs: Distinguishable and clear signage will guide drivers and pedestrians on your property. Signs that meet AODA requirements must have the appropriate symbols and dimensions to communicate and provide direction.
  • Bollard Covers: Bollards are important safety features in parking lots. The correct bollard covers increase visibility and protect against collisions, enhancing safety for all residents.
