Safety products: PathFinder, a new line of wayfinding products from Graphic Products, helps facilities organize workflow and create barriers between workers and potential hazards. The wide variety of tapes offer visual communication solutions to designate forklift zones, add traction to slippery steps, light darkened hallways, and convey safety messages when and where workers need it most.

“Floor marking tape is an easy and inexpensive tool for companies,” said Josh Ball, product manager with Graphic Products. “Unlike paint or permanent barriers, tape can be applied within minutes and removed when needed.”

The PathFinder line includes various categories of industrial-strength tape. Heavy Duty tape is rugged, standing up to long-term use, heavy forklift traffic, and spills when used on warehouse floors. Tread tapes are designed to eliminate slips and falls in the workplace and are OSHA compliant to keep workers safe when used on catwalks, staircases, and ramps.

Reflect tape directs attention and prevents accidents day and night when used on the back of trucks, rail cars, and around transportation barriers. Glow tape illuminates lowlight conditions when used on emergency exits, fuse boxes, and handrails. Print tape offers customizable safety messages to remind workers of required personal protective equipment, hazards, and warehouse traffic.

“Floor marking tape is a versatile tool,” Ball said. “Whether you’re directing traffic or organizing a workspace, organized boundaries create more efficient work environments.”

Graphic Products has also introduced a complimentary Floor Marking Best Practice Guide in support of the PathFinder launch, which provide real-world floor marking applications, OSHA and ANSI recommendations, and inspection checklists, which safety managers can use to analyze their own safety communications. A complimentary webinar has been released in support of the practice guide, and a promotional video illustrating the products in action.

Graphic Products manufactures PathFinder floor marking supplies, and is the global leader in providing visual safety solutions made possible by a series of workplace label and sign printers, supplies, and industry guides and publications.
