Playground line painting those fun times when you were a child, hopping, skipping and jumping to the finish line of your favourite game at recess? Or maybe you played four square with your friends at lunch or a quick game of hopscotch on the way to class. These playground games were made possible by the use of line marking, which creates a safe playing space. If your school or local community’s line painting is starting to fade, or your playground has an unattractive patch of grey bitumen, it may be time to consider a fresh coat of paint!
Bringing Playgrounds to Life: The Art of Playground Line Painting
Whether you choose to paint or install thermoplastic playground markings, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, make sure that the surface is clean and dry before either method. Also, ensure that mossy or muddy areas are cleared to prevent flooding or freezing of the marks once they are installed. Additionally, if the area you are working with is prone to frequent floods, then we recommend postponing any installation of playground markings until conditions are more favourable.
For those interested in the painting option, it’s important to hire professionals who are experienced in this type of work. This will help to ensure that the design is properly sized, layout and applied. Additionally, they will be able to handle any customisation requests for your markings, which may include incorporating themes, educational content or branding (e.g. a school logo). Finally, hiring skilled labour will ensure that the markings are installed correctly to avoid any issues later on.
