What Are Playground Markings?

Playground Markings are a variety of designs and patterns that can be laid, sprayed and heated into a surface.

Having markings installed on a surface can be beneficial for thing such as safety, education and a stimulus. Areas such as car parks are critical to have markings on to make sure pedestrians have safe areas to walk and to cross.

Other great reasons for Playground Markings are to get children to engage with the surface maybe having the option just to play games with a target laid on the surface or numbers and letter designed to educate children with Maths and English.

At Soft Surfaces, we aim to improve play areas across the UK. One way of doing this is by supplying and installing playground markings to brighten old, dull tarmac areas.
