Our team have designed and installed a number of outdoor play areas for schools with surfaces like wetpour and rubber mulch to add safety qualities and bright colours.
Many schools choose to have colourful thermoplastic designs added to a tarmac surface, and this is a service we offer with plenty of graphics to choose from.
Rubber flooring is often installed to children's playgrounds as it creates a safer surface in case kids fall when running around or using equipment.
If you're looking for school playground flooring specialists we offer a multitude of services to help schools and councils create outdoor learning environments. These facilities can be designed with many different surfacing options, but it completely depends on what type of children’s play area you want. Feel free to speak to one of our experts if you are unsure about which surface specification would be best for your school and budget. Just fill out our contact box on this page to get in touch with us.
Some of the most popular specifications that our local playground flooring team install are made from rubber. Wetpour is a common recreational surface, applied in a two tiered system with an SBR base shockpad and an EPDM wearing course. The top layer is available in a number of colour choices, however many clients choose to have the main surface installed in black, with smaller coloured graphics. This tends to be a more cost effective option and it takes a shorter time to install compared with having multiple different coloured sections. If you are interested in learning about the range of play surfaces we offer you can look here - http://www.design-supply-install.co.uk/porous-paving/resin-bound/ to see how resin bound can work well for your facility.
If you want to create a vibrant and interactive outdoor space at your school, wetpour is a great option because there are so many colourful designs which could be incorporated for different activities. Rubber mulch is another specialist surfacing type which is often used at schools and nurseries. This is made up of shredded rubber pieces mixed together with binder and is generally installed in more natural colours.
We also offer a range of thermoplastic floor markings for tarmac play areas in schools. These create vibrant and fun designs which the children can use for lots of activities and educational games in both primary and secondary education facilities. Schools which provide kids with a lot of features for outdoor play often receive extra credit from Ofsted reports. Things like hopscotch, multiplication grids, letter games and targets can all be incorporated to create an interactive learning space.

If you’re looking to get a children’s playground design with loads of exciting features to enhance development, you can select different pieces of equipment. These could be things like agility trails, monkey bars, stepping logs, climbing frames and full trim trails. Having these products in schools helps children to develop a number of skills including strength, balance, coordination and teamwork. The versatile equipment could even be installed to match the designs of any floor markings or graphics you want to include. Many schools nearby have timber boats with a blue sea design applied to the flooring around it, and this may be used for imaginative games.
The wetpour and rubber mulch surfaces can be laid by our school playground flooring specialists to meet the Critical Fall Height (CFH) of any equipment you do have. This is to ensure maximum safety qualities if children are climbing on tall jungle gyms, using swings or running across balance beams as well as the surrounding areas. The rubber surfacing is designed to absorb impact and prevent injuries if a child falls onto it.
Thermoplastic markings are often installed directly onto an existing macadam play area surface; however we could also apply a coloured paint coating beneath the graphics to create an even more exciting appearance. The paint and markings are both designed to have anti slip properties, so they are safe in areas where kids will be running around and doing different activities. Many schools have the floor graphics applied as fitness circuits which the children traverse around and complete various actions like jumping, hopping and balancing. These could be designed to follow on from a timber trim trail which follows around the recreational area. The pupils would be able to use the equipment and floor graphics during PE lessons as well as break times as a way of being more active and promoting a healthy lifestyle. Some activities that children will get involved in will involve high jump http://www.design-supply-install.co.uk/athletics/high-jump/ and long jump which can improve a child's athletics.
