Educational Play Designs

Outdoor play surfaces at nurseries often have vibrant and engaging coloured characters, animals and shapes which allow very young children to take part in interactive play with others. For older children at primary schools, the school playground flooring designs usually have educational activities like maths grids, compasses, word games and geographical maps. These help children to learn core curriculum subjects through physical and active play outside the classroom.

Having these sorts of markings is often very beneficial for children who might find classroom learning challenging sometimes. The range of available colours and designs is almost endless as we may also create unique graphics and logos. You can choose these to fit in with a particular theme that your school or nursery has.

Wetpour safety surfaces are popular at schools and nurseries because the NBS specification is made up of an SBR base layer to absorb impact and an EPDM wearing course layer which gives the surface its colour. Play area graphic designs for this type of flooring can be created to meet the bespoke requirements of each individual nursery, school or public recreational facility.

Costs for each different surface type and design will change from project to project so please fill in our quick enquiry form to discuss quotes with a member of staff.

Playground Surface Graphics

As well as wetpour rubber recreational surfaces, tarmacadam is also great for schools and parks. Playground surface graphics are also available for this flooring type. The macadam specification is a strong and durable surfacing option that is great for playing numerous sports and activities. This is why it’s popular at many schools in the UK. Coloured play area markings could be applied to macadam play areas in either thermoplastic or specialist paint.

The thermoplastic graphics are cut out into the chosen shapes prior to the installation. We will then apply them with heat so they melt onto the tarmac leaving a colourful and durable graphic marking on the playground. We can also apply specialist paint to a macadam playground surface with a brush or roller. This creates multi-coloured markings for sports and other games. To find out more about the macadam playground surfacing, visit this page – which describes the product in more detail.

The different graphics are made into their shape prior to the installation of the wetpour. We’ll usually place the shapes onto the base course and then apply for the wearing course around them.
