Playground Marking Graphics

Playground marking graphics are an important part to enhance your play area and make it a fun and educational environment for the children to play in. We are regularly asked to install thermoplastic designs in nurseries, schools, parks and playgrounds and we have a wide range of markings to choose from. Thermoplastic markings are not just fun, they can be educational and also bring the community together. This is because snakes and ladders and hopscotch’s have numbers on them and children will be learning in an activity. They can bring the pupils and community together because we’re often asked to install friendship stops and recreational quiet areas.


The playground markings that we can install are available in a number of different colours and designs depending on your individual needs and requirements. We may alter designs to meet your spending budget, so please do not be afraid to let us know how much you are planning to spend on the graphics that we install.

Playground Marking Installation

Playground marking graphics can transform, renovate and revitalise your dull tarmac surface and make it a nicer place for the children and something which they will want to use. The process is very quick and cost effective, the plastic material is placed in the area which the client wants it, then heat is applied to the design and it melts onto the macadam flooring. Schools outdoor play areas used to have to paint markings applied to the tarmac; this was a longer process and would have to be done regularly when the paint was worn off. These designs last much longer and look a lot better because they are preformed and brighter colours and various patterns could be applied to them.
