Where are Playground Markings Installed?

Playground markings are installed in various locations where there is a need for organized and engaging play spaces. Some common places where playground markings are installed include:

The specific types of playground markings installed can vary based on the target age group, available space, and the preferences of the community or organisation responsible for the playground.

These markings not only add aesthetic appeal but also contribute to the development of physical, social, and cognitive skills in children.

Are Playground Markings Safe and Slip-proof?

If you have a tarmac playground, it is important to ensure that any product you purchase is non-slip. This is particularly the case in primary school playgrounds where there are children involved.

Any tarmac surface can become slippery after it rains, and non-slip designs give a great look while helping to keep playgrounds and parks safe for young people across the UK.

All our markings contain anti-slip properties and are available in a wide variety of vibrant colours for school children.

A floor graphic product that is safe will be the primary consideration for any primary school playground, so it is important to ensure that all companies’ quality and safety checks for each product.

These details should be available for each product directly from the supply company, with post-installation checks completed by the school for each floor graphic product.

Safety checks of the product can be simple and quick to complete, ensuring each product is flush with the playground surface and with no raised edges that can be tripped over.

What are Thermoplastic Playground Markings?

Thermoplastic playground markings refer to a type of playground surface marking that is made from a material called thermoplastic.

Thermoplastic is a synthetic polymer that becomes pliable and mouldable when heated and solidifies when cooled. This material is commonly used for road markings, but it has also found applications in outdoor play areas and recreational areas.

Playground markings are designs, patterns, or games painted or applied to the ground in recreational areas such as school playgrounds, parks, and sports facilities.

Examples of thermoplastic playground markings include hopscotch, snakes and ladders, alphabet and number games, geometric shapes, and sports court markings. These markings not only contribute to the aesthetic appeal of the playground but also provide opportunities for physical activity, learning, and social interaction among children.


Why are Playground Markings so Important for Schools?

Playground activities are an essential aspect of a child’s social and educational well-being.

Using playground markings will allow each child to experience the fun side of their education and will enable teachers to provide an alternative delivery method for that education.

Why are Playground Markings so important for schools_

The material used for the play surfaces is important so as to work for both team and individual activities.

Using colours and graphics is a great way to achieve this. As a result of using coloured graphics and thermoplastic material, lots of groups can safely play with the markings.

After choosing the best design for your playground, deciding when it should be delivered is next; we advise you to liaise with the company directly to ensure minimal disruption.

An expected installation time is helpful to plan this, so ensure you ask for this from the company when ordering.

How Important is Choosing the Right Design?

Choosing the right design for school playground markings is essential to help with students’ development and social skills, having a hopscotch design or anything similar will encourage children to play together and gain the social skills they need to make friends on the school playground.

Children can also use their imagination to create traditional games using thermoplastic playground marking designs.

How do you Remove Playground Markings?

Removing playground markings, especially those made from thermoplastic, can be a bit challenging because thermoplastic is designed to be durable and long-lasting. However, the methods we recommend are ultra-high-pressure water and sand jet removal.

Ultra-High-Pressure Water

This environmentally friendly technique is applicable to various outdoor surfaces, such as concrete and tarmac. Water jetting is well-suited for eliminating intricate markings and those on textured surfaces without causing harm to the underlying structure.

The ultra-high-pressure water jet approach is assertive, providing a thorough and vigorous cleaning for playgrounds. It proves to be both time and cost-effective, particularly for the removal of thermoplastic markings on expansive playgrounds. The utilisation of ultra-high-pressure water jets not only minimizes noise disturbances but also streamlines the clean-up process.

Sand Jet Removal

An alternative approach to eliminate playground markings is through sand jetting. This method employs an abrasive and gritty solution, forcefully directed at the playground surface to erase the markings. While sand jetting may take more time compared to ultra-high-pressure water jetting, it stands out as the preferred method for delicate surfaces.

Sand jetting offers an environmentally friendly means of playground marking removal. Our process utilises eco-friendly materials, producing no fumes during removal. Notably, our sand jetting method is characterised by low consumption and minimal clean-up requirements.

This swift and compact sand jetting technique ensures no harm to the playground surface. There’s no need to block or close public footpaths, and sand jetting is highly mobile, leaving no residue or generating back smoke.

In cases of heavily marked playgrounds, the sand jetting process may extend beyond the duration of other removal methods.
