How to Effectively Mark Arrows, Numbers, or Letters on Roads?

Table of Contents

When driving on city roads or highways, you can see various white or yellow markings. These markings are important traffic safety facilities, including different shapes of lines, arrows, warning messages, convex markings, raised pavement markings, and contour lines. Road markings not only regulate and direct traffic but also work in conjunction with road signs.

So, how are different types of markings made? In this article, we will discuss three methods for making road markings, using arrows as an example.

Mark arrows, numbers, or letters using stencils

First, make an arrow or letter stencil out of metal or other materials that are the same size as the one that needs to be painted on the road surface. Place it on the road surface and then push the cutting part of the road marking machine’s paint model. Carefully lift the stencil, being careful not to smudge the wet paint.

Measure precise data and mark the arrow’s position on the road surface in advance, and then the operator pushes the road marking machine to paint. First, paint the rectangular area, then cover the outer space triangle area with a board to avoid going over the arrow.

Using road marking tape for road markings

High-quality road marking tape with strong adhesion can be used on concrete or asphalt surfaces and has long-lasting effects outdoors. Pull out the tape and cut it into pieces and reassemble it into an arrow, letter, or number shape.

All three methods shared above can be used to make arrow lines or other types of traffic markings. Choose the method according to actual needs and applications.
