What are Playground Graphics?

Thermoplastic graphics are applied to tarmac surfaces and when installing thermoplastic markings, heat is applied to the graphics and it is melted onto the surface. The playground markings are versatile and are available in all different colours, designs and specifications.

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 long-lasting finish.

One of the reasons why these graphics are so popular is because they could be educational for children. Since children learn more when outside taking part in games, it is important for schools to have educative designs installed.

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 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 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 have a wide 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.
