We use playground markings made from high quality preformed thermoplastic to create lines and drawings that are installed onto concrete and tarmac. Playground markings are popular for assisting in education and entertainment and can last ten times longer than paint. What’s more, the material is environmentally friendly.
Why are playground markings so vital for playgrounds?
Playgrounds are busy places at breaktimes so you want to make sure that the children have designated areas for their games or they may be in each other’s way and cause accidents. With playground markings, it’s easy for a child to know if they are about to sit in the middle of a potential game and a quiet area can be provided for them. Playground markings can be used to show where the children are allowed to go and where they need to line up for the start of lessons or fire drills.
Maintain or start an active lifestyle
According to the National Measurement Programme (2019/2020), 19.1% of Reception children and 33% of Year 6 children in Northumberland are overweight or obese. These numbers may seem intimidating but encouraging children to be more active will help to reduce these figures and help to safeguard them from medical issues later in life.
Our playground markings could even help your students to find a sport or game they really love that they continue with later in life.
Regular breaks will help to give children the time to process their lessons and reset for the next ones. Getting fresh air and some exercise will help to improve their mood, sleep and reduce stress. One tenth of school children have a mental health problem so it’s never too soon to tackle these issues. Playground markings give children the opportunity to engage in an activity without lots of time setting up so they will get more benefits from their time.

Variety is the key to a good playground
Having a good variety of different activity types will mean that your playground is a success at breaktime, as well as for lessons and P.E. Your choices for your playground will be determined by its users and their ages, as well as the amount of available space – but we know how to combine playground markings to maximise opportunities, so you can count on us.
