Wetpour is commonly installed for nurseries, parks and play areas, this is because it is a soft safety surface which meets the necessary BS EN 1177 safety requirements. Wet pour designs allow you to be unique and create a customized recreational area which is fun and visually pleasing for both children and adults. We’re normally asked to create a bespoke design specification for schools and they give us a theme to follow and we choose the graphics based on what they have asked for.

Thermoplastic markings are applied onto a macadam surface; they are becoming more popular for older years to have and not just Key Stages 1 and 2. Again, the design choice is endless and you can be creative with these markings. They are simple to install to tarmac play areas and cause minimal disruption to the school, they are also very easy to maintain and last a long time.

School Playground Design

Having a school playground design in either wet pour rubber surfacing or thermoplastic markings helps you to make the most out of your facility’s surfaces and also benefitting the children’s outdoor environment. It is most likely becoming more popular to have a school playground design installed because it can improve your Ofsted report.

It can boost your score because having these designs gives the pupils the option to learn outside, which is one of Ofsted’s requirements. Some children do not focus in a classroom environment and will learn much more in an outdoor activity. This is what these graphics enable children to do.

Play area graphic applications can improve children’s education because the designs can be made to meet educational programmes which are relevant to your pupils’ National Curriculum. Fitness can be improved by making running tracks and fitness trails out of the graphic materials and social skills could be enhanced because we’re able to install friendship stops and recreational areas, which can make the school community come together.

We have previously installed a number of designs which can develop education, fitness and social skills and the organisations have been proud of their surfaces. It is extremely important for children to get the best use of their outdoor space, so having different types of graphics and activities is always good.
