Specialist playground marking services

Having a bright, colourful and attractive playground offers many benefits to children. It will encourage play, enhance interaction and promote fitness and coordination. Research also shows that playground markings can help support the development of children’s social skills, problem solving, fitness and agility.

In a school setting, children who are stimulated through play come back from break times refreshed and ready to learn. Fewer playground injuries occur on playgrounds that are clearly marked, while having a carefully planned playground and zoning greatly reduces the risk of injury or accident. Whatever your playground marking needs, whether you’re a school, leisure centre or private operator, we can help you create a welcoming environment that encourages play while ensuring health and safety.

Playground marking types and designs

From outdoor games and learning to sports and fitness, we can create a wide array of surface designs for your indoor or outdoor playground areas. They are designed to help children interact and learn through play, encourage their physical development and improve their cognitive and motor skills. Our pre-formed thermoplastic playground markings come in a range of different styles to suit any space, from games and education to animals and road safety. Markings can also be adapted to suit different key stage levels in a shared playground. Our bright, interactive, and educational playground markings will keep children entertained throughout break times, allowing them to return to the classroom reinvigorated and ready to learn.

Thermoplastic and painted playground markings

Schools often work to tight budgets, so we can help you keep within it while making the best use of your available playground space to maximise the return on investment. With our extensive experience and product knowledge, we can help you avoid common pitfalls and expensive mistakes. Playgrounds are most often marked with thermoplastic markings or paint. There are many benefits to marking in each, depending on the design and style you’re after.

Paint is a cheaper product that produces colourful designs using stencils or precise, clear lines using laser-guided technology. If you’re planning to change playground markings frequently, paint is the best choice. Thermoplastic is a durable and long-lasting product that doesn’t fade like paint, saving you money over time, especially if you’re not planning to regularly make changes to the layout.

There are many colourful thermoplastic designs available that engage children and help to stimulate interactive play. So, whether you’re looking to upgrade or reconfigure your existing playground area or create a new indoor or outdoor play space, our expert team can advise on the best ways to achieve what you’re looking for.

Please pass our huge thanks to the team. They were a genuine pleasure to have around school. Their attention to detail, willingness to work with school and general good humour made the whole line marking experience run very smoothly. The children are delighted with their new markings; the fitness trail, chessboard and target throw are particular favourites. Teachers love the number squares and number lines, and even parents have remarked on just how bright and colourful everywhere looks. I’m sure we’ll be having you back for further work in the future.
