What are Playground Markings?

Playground markings are applied to tarmac surfaces and when installing high quality thermoplastic markings, heat is applied to the graphics and it is melted onto the surface. The school playground markings we offer are versatile and are available in all different colours, bespoke designs and specifications.

You can choose from a selection of thermoplastic playground designs, sizes and colours to obtain a perfect set of playground markings for your school.


From road markings to help with road safety, to educational alphabet snakes, the choice is fully yours when it comes to how you want your playground markings to look.

Many primary schools, nurseries and community leisure areas have the thermoplastic graphics to develop a vibrant and long-lasting finish.

One of the reasons why the graphics we create and install are so popular is because they could help educate children, whilst encouraging play. Since school children learn more when outside taking part in traditional playground games, it is important for your primary school playground project to have an educative playground design installed for outdoor learning.

The school playground markings services which we offer can completely revitalise and refurbish your macadam surface. Some organisations like kindergartens and nurseries ask us to paint their tarmac surface before we install the playground designs.

This is because when macadam is old it can look dull. It is a quick and simple process when painting macadam and can make it look like a brand new playground surface and this will also make the thermoplastic playground markings stand out.

We also complete servicing and renovation for tired thermoplastic markings which may have faded or grown to be cracked after a while. A large number of classic activities may be applied on the recreational flooring such as times tables grids and snakes and ladders.

Be sure to get in touch with our experts if you’d like a quote for installing colourful thermoplastics in your play area. We can create a wide range of diverse designs available including both educational graphics and fun activities like road markings to help children learn road safety during play.

The costs for each will vary, depending on what playground markings you’d like us to create, and how many you’d like to be installed, so feel free to let us know what you’re looking for and our friendly team will send you a quote to fit with your budget.
