Thermoplastic graphics are applied to tarmac surfaces and we have designs for all different ages. When installing thermoplastic markings, heat is applied to the graphics and it is melted onto the surface. The markings are versatile and are available in all different colours, designs and specifications. The 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 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 surface and this will also make the markings stand out.

We have a huge range of diverse designs available including both educational graphics and fun activities. The costs for each will vary so feel free to let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll come up with a quote to fit with your budget.

What are Playground Graphics?

You can choose from a selection of designs, sizes and colours to obtain a perfect set of playground marking graphics for your school. Many primary schools, nurseries and community leisure areas have the thermoplastic graphics to develop a vibrant and longer lasting finish. We also complete servicing and renovation for tired thermoplastics 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.

One of the reasons why these graphics are so popular is because they could be educational for the children. Since children learn more when outside taking part in games, it is important for schools to have educative designs installed. These graphic design markings can also help to improve school’s Ofsted reports. 

Play Area Graphic Markings

A lot of schools, nurseries, kindergartens and parks in the UK have play area graphic markings installed onto their macadam surface. The educational designs can be things such as:

  • Snakes and Ladders
  • Hopscotch
  • Number tracks
  • Alphabet games
  • Animals
  • Cartoon characters

the recreational designs can bring the community together and we have previously installed friendship stops and quiet areas. The design specification is endless and we are always looking for more ideas and possible graphics. If you have any of your own design ideas make sure you let us know.

As well as being able to apply new design and thermoplastics to the surface, we can also repair existing designs and carry out maintenance on them. Some facilities have old, worn out line-markings and they want them to be removed because they make the surface look worse, we remove these markings and then re-apply different markings. We also make old markings look new again; we can do this quickly by relining the designs and going over them again. It can give your playground a new lease of life and make it look fresh and new.

Children’s Recreational Facilities

For the purpose of children’s recreational areas, thermoplastics typically improve the flooring and add colourful graphic designs. Youngsters can appreciate fun games in addition to increasing their fitness and acquiring crucial skills. They are ideal for all kids from primary to secondary school in both KS1 and KS2. These kinds of markings may include informative games for many lessons including maths and geography. The most commonly selected graphic designs could be things like number grids, clocks, phonics and fun characters.

The brightly coloured marking is perfect for getting little ones to be a lot more physically active and healthy, along with allowing them to have a good time in the fresh air.
