    Aye, that's going to depend on the floor. Or if it's indoors or not. Or how long it needs to last. Or well I keep thinking of more things it depends on every time I save the changes.

    I'll just narrow it down to my two favorites. Walk N Wall and Alumigraphics Grip.

    GF matched set or 3m IJ4 with 3645 depending on the budget for indoor or Walk & Wall and Alumagraphics Grip for outside. Walk and wall can be used for indoors but be careful with it on certain floors.
     
  8. I am using Avery 2120 with 2080 DOL. If I wanted the graphics I am making/have made to last a long time I would use Alumagraphics.

    We're running an order right now and are using GF 210 HTAPAE w/ Avery DOL 2080.

    Combination of high-tack, air-egress vinyl and non-slip laminate.

    Carpet would be Walk and Wall or similar. With a caveat....it CAN roll up at the edges or puncture.

    I'm quoting a job now for the local mall for social distancing floor graphics. Their floors are indoor and very smooth/polished. I'm thinking permanent adhesive Avery vinyl with a matte laminate would work. Or do I have to use a anti-slip laminate?
     
  14. Avery DOL 2080 us UL listed slip resistant, while I was waiting for a few rolls to arrive I learned the 3000 series DOL is as well so I used it on 2923 until I got the 2120.

    As long as you have a UL rated product for the lam or the one step substrate...you are fine.

    Ij40 + 8509 for cheap ones with not too much foot traffic.


    Ij40 + 3624 of its a really high traffic area.


    A lot of you guys mention using the non overlam needed floor decals... How do you find they hold up? Even ij40+8509 we end up having to replace them in a month or so. One shop gets their floor cleaned every 2 weeks and they run a genie scrubber over them and it just destroys them. We've tried to talk them into 3624 overlam since it should last a lot longer... But it's like 3x the price and they scoff at that, say they'll just keep putting new ones down as needed since they don't all get ruined... But I can't imagine a non laminated one lasting too long... Our suppliers keen trying to sell us on it though. Anyone care to Weigh in on longevity?

    Using HP Latex inks on the Walk N Wall and Alumigraphics Grip we've seen up to 6 months outdoors. We did a theme park and in the areas that didn't have the black top, they lasted the full season. Otherwise they were only good for about 1-3 months. We don't recommend the Walk N Wall for more than a few weeks outdoor, especially if it has heavy ink coverage. Indoors, it's lasted much longer.
