The Playground Markings Specialists

City Road Markings provide a wide range of colourful, educational playground markings to encourage children to play, learn and develop.

Playground markings are an excellent cost effective way to bring fun to your children’s playtime.

The markings are created from the highest quality preformed thermoplastic which is organically pigmented throughout the thickness of the material and can last 8 times longer than traditional paint.

City Road Markings are able to plan your playground by suggesting products based upon your size requirements, desired play types and budget.

Types of Playground Markings

Playground markings can provide a number of benefits to any playground, whether it’s a playground for preschool age children or older. At City Road Markings we offer a whole range of different playground marking designs, either preformed or bespoke, to fit in with the character of your individual playground.

Which Design is Right For You?

Playground markings are a wonderful way to combine education and play, but to get the most out of your markings, it’s important you choose the right design. Below we’ve added a few ideas to make the choice a little easier, but if you’d like more help, get in touch to speak to one of our experienced team, who’ll be happy to help.

• Alphabet markings – Learning to read is central to most children’s education, and as any teacher knows, learning is far more effective when the children are having fun. Our alphabet markings can be designed in any layout you choose. Maybe you’d like a spiral design, a set of triangles, or even a hopscotch style grid, where children can hop from one letter to the next.

• Number markings – Counting, just like reading is vital for most children’s development, so what better way to aid their learning than with brightly coloured number markings? At City Road Markings, we have a wide selection of brightly coloured and imaginative preformed designs ready to install, or we’ll work with you to create something completely individual.

• Snakes & Ladders – Oversized snakes & ladders is a great way to inspire children in play, and to make every playtime extra special - with a little competition to boot. Using brilliantly coloured, hardwearing thermoplastic line marking applications, we’ll give your playground an oversized snakes & ladders, or any other board game, both you and your students will love for a very long time to come.

• Classic playground games – If you’re looking for playground markings with a more classic feel, why not go for a chess board, hopscotch, noughts & crosses, or a football or netball pitch?

Whichever classic playground markings you’d like, as a professional playground marking contractor, we’re able to install a huge range of different designs with the colours and graphics of your choice – so get inventing!

Playground Marking Installation

The 3 main steps to installing your playground markings include:

Design – Before getting your playground markings installed, it’s important to know exactly what you require, and to design a layout to suit.

To make the process simple, we offer a free sit survey, so that one of our skilled operatives can visit your playground, measure up and let you know what’s possible and what’s not.

Preparation – Preparation is one of the key elements to a successful and long-lasting playground line marking installation. The main preparation steps are:

• Making sure the surface (substrate) is clear of any contaminants or debris that may affect the adhesion of the line application.

• Installing a priming solution to help create a sufficient bond for the line marking application (usually thermoplastic).

Installation – Once the designs are in and the area has been prepared, we’ll get to work installing your playground markings. The installation process can be completed in as little as half an hour, depending on the complexity of the design and the size of the playground. Once installed, due to the natural qualities of the thermoplastic application, your playground markings will be ready to enjoy in a matter of minutes.
