How to Remove Playground Markings

If you are looking for a professional team to remove old or worn out playground markings, you’ve come to the right place. UniPlay offers a variety of eco-friendly thermoplastic marking removal methods that do not damage your playground.

We can remove playground markings using different methods to suit your needs. Once we have removed old markings, we also ensure your playground is clean by disposing of all debris so you are prepared to install new markings.

Thermoplastic Playground Markings Removal Methods

Old or worn playground markings not only give your school a poor aesthetic, but they also do not inspire the children to spend more time engaging in active play. Thankfully, we offer you a variety of solutions to regenerate your playground and transform it into a vibrant space that is attractive to children of all ages.

Our process starts with the removal of dull markings. For this we use:

Ultra-High Pressure Water

Also known as water jetting, using ultra-high pressure water to remove thermoplastic playground markings is eco-friendly and safe for use on delicate markings. It is also ideal for use on textured areas to prevent damage to the grounds.

This method uses water so it gives an even, clean look. We recommend this method where the playground is close to a dependable water source with normal pressure. Our team will also remove any dust or debris left behind and leave your playground ready for new markings.

Using hydro blasting to remove thermoplastic playground markings may leave behind a clean mark. However, this mark will fade over time and blend into the playground as it is exposed to dirt and foot traffic.

Sand Jet Removal Method

This method uses an abrasive gritty solution to remove playground markings. While this process is slower than water jetting, it is the most ideal method for delicate surfaces. The gritty solution is blasted on the surface at high pressure carefully removing markings without damaging the grounds.

Sand jetting is environmentally friendly as it does not use any toxic slurries or produce any harmful fumes. The process also consumes less water and generally requires less clean-up. When using this thermoplastic playground markings removal method, our team will not require to close off the area, minimising interruption to your school activities.

While sand jetting cannot compete in speed with burning line removal systems, it will not leave behind melted residue and burnt tarmac. Sand jetting produces only a little sand, water and the material used to mark the playground.

Our team will quickly and carefully vacuum or wash away any debris leaving your playground ready for the installation team.
