Playground Markings

School playground games markings are a quick and cost-effective way of brightening up playgrounds and encouraging active outdoor learning for kids. The wide range of colourful and educational thermoplastic playground markings we offer are not only great fun, but they can also be used to help children improve their literacy/numeracy skills and increase their fitness levels.

With over 35 years’ experience of school playground markings, we can design & install bespoke playground games markings to suit your needs and budget. We have worked at hundreds of schools throughout Scotland and the North of England.

The pictures above and below are of schools we have carried out playground markings on and they may provide you with some inspiration and ideas. However, we are more than happy to visit your school free of charge to discuss the numerous playground games markings available and use our expertise to advise on the most suitable markings for your specific playground.

Most of the school playground markings we offer are pre-formed thermoplastic markings – these are extremely hard wearing, non-slip and are available in a wide in a range of bright and vibrant colours and designs.

We offer our playground marking services across the whole of Scotland and the North of England from our depots in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle upon Tyne.
