Understanding Your Options: Different Types of Parking Lot Striping in St. Louis

At Next Level Striping, we offer a variety of parking lot striping options to cater to the specific needs of your St. Louis property. Here’s a breakdown of some common types and their uses, keeping in mind relevant St. Louis regulations:

 

Standard Parking Stalls

These are the most common type, typically measuring 9 feet wide by 18 feet long in St. Louis, as per city regulations. We use solid white lines to mark the boundaries, and dashed white lines for dividing adjacent stalls.

Angled Parking Spaces

These spaces are often used in tight spaces or to maximize parking capacity. St. Louis regulations typically require angled spaces to be 8 feet wide by 18 feet long, with a minimum 60-degree angle relative to the travel lane. For angled spaces, we use solid white lines for the stall boundaries and diagonal white lines for the individual spaces.

ADA Compliant Parking

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mandates specific requirements for accessible parking spaces. In St. Louis, these spaces must be 8 feet wide and 16 feet long, with an accessible aisle of at least 5 feet wide adjacent to the driver’s side. We use blue paint to designate these spaces and van-accessible symbols on the pavement.

Loading Zones

Clearly marked loading zones are essential for facilitating deliveries and preventing unauthorized parking. St. Louis regulations usually require loading zones to be 10 feet wide by 20 feet long, marked with yellow paint and signage indicating the time limit.

Crosswalks

These designated pedestrian walkways ensure safe crossing points for pedestrians. In St. Louis, crosswalks are typically marked with thick white lines accompanied by yield signs for drivers.
