School Playground Markings

We can install school playground markings for children's facilities to add a vibrant and bold design to a plain surface and create a fun area for the kids to play. As tarmac play areas sometimes get worn out and tired over time, especially if they are used a lot, this can be the perfect feature to add to brighten up a dull space. These graphics come in a huge range of different shapes and sizes so children can make up their own games and improve physical literacy and cognitive skills which contributes to EYFS learning. The markings can be suitable for children of all ages and they can come in a range of patterns so that they are appropriate to the children's ages.

The costs for installing coloured play surface graphics will depend on the design you choose and the amount of materials that are needed, but we can discuss a quote to suit you. Just get in touch with us by filling in the enquiry form today and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

How are Playground Markings Produced?

The school playground markings are made from a durable thermoplastic material and come pre-cut into shapes. For installation, the plastic shapes will be laid onto the tarmac in the desired position, and then a burner will be used to heat up the plastic causing it to melt and fuse into the surface. If your tarmac playground flooring looks worn out or faded, we can apply a paint coating either in black or in a bright colour to upgrade the look of the surface before the lines are applied. This can make a real difference to the appearance of your playground; particularly if there are old painted markings that you want to cover up.

If you would like to brighten up your recreational area with colourful playground designs we’d love to help so please complete our contact form to speak to one of our experts about costs for this work.

How to Apply Thermoplastic Markings

To install the designs onto your required surface, these simple steps should be followed to ensure that you get the perfect outcome.

  1. Give your designated area a brush to get rid or dirt
  2. Apply a light jet wash to remove build up of contamination
  3. Lay the plastic in the required position 
  4. Apply heat to the markings so that they can melt into the tarmac
  5. Allow to cool

These markings may need occasional upkeep such as sweeping and gentle power washes to ensure there is no build up of contamination and and that the colours can stay bold and bright. As expert installers we are able to supply and install the designs for your school so that the markings are in perfect condition and to your standards. 

Thermoplastic Play Area Designs

The thermoplastic play area designs that we install offer durability and slip resistance so they won’t fade and they prevent children from slipping over if they’re running around. We can supply lots of bright colours and different graphics for children of all ages. Educational designs like number grids, letter snakes and world maps are popular for improving children’s cognitive development, and also allow them to be creative and think of different games. Outdoor play is extremely important in early years as it helps to develop physical fitness and many children learn better by doing activities rather than sitting in a classroom. OFSTED encourage active play using surface graphics and outdoor equipment because it’s beneficial for children’s health, fitness and learning.

There are many benefits of these floor markings when it comes to school playground development and improvements. Kids are able to enjoy many different activities outside including educational games and playing with equipment. This can help with teaching KS1 outdoors as well as other age groups to give a diverse and varied learning environment.
