Your Guide To Playground Markings

Despite their growing popularity, there are still a great deal of people who have little or even no experience of playground markings. With that in mind, we have constructed the ultimate guide to our thermoplastic playground markings to give you a greater knowledge into not only what they are but how your playground could benefit from them.

What Are Playground Markings?

There are two types of playground marking. These are painted playground markings and thermoplastic playground markings. Here at Easy Markings, we specialise in thermoplastic playground markings because not only are they non-toxic, but they’re non-slip, easier to install and last much longer than painted markings, in some cases, ten years longer. While thermoplastic playground markings may initially seem like the more expensive option, they often workout much cheaper due to their ability to outlast other options and provide a much safer environment all round. In short, thermoplastic markings are the superior option.

What Surfaces Can Thermoplastic Markings Be Installed On?

Tarmac is the best option for thermoplastic playground markings. While new tar would be the best option for laying thermoplastic playground markings, even older tarmac playground surfaces will make a decent laying surface. With the help of a primer, playground markings will last significantly longer and with professional installation, markings will last a number of years. We’re often asked whether thermoplastic markings can be installed on astroturf or even rubber mulch. Unfortunately this isn’t the case. The heat used to install these markings would cause significant damage to these types of surfaces.

What Types Of Playground Markings Are There?

Thermoplastic playground markings are available in a wide variety of options.

The variety of these markings allow them to provide options for all settings from Early Years to Secondary Schools.

Can You Remove Or Cover Up Markings

Playground markings can be removed with the help of our incredible team. Equally they can also be covered up, however this will depend on how faded or how much of the marking is left. If old markings are barely visible or have large parts missing, then it’s highly likely we’ll be able to cover them with new thermoplastic markings. This will require a visit from our team to assess the eligibility of your current coverings.
