Tips for choosing interactive playground markings

At UniPlay, we work with schools throughout the UK on their playground marking projects. We are passionate about creating engaging playground which pupils of all ages can interact with during break time and as part of PE and outdoor lessons.

However, when designing an interactive playground, we advise the schools we work with to take into account a number of different factors, including… 

Consider your pupils ages

Although our thermoplastic playground markings cater to a huge range of ages, however when designing a playground project, the age of pupils is a core part of our design process. Our aim is to provide a diverse range of playground markings which pupils throughout the stages of education can enjoy. We have a range of markings suitable for community centres, play areas, primary school pupils and specialise sports court and multi use games areas markings.

Roadways are ideal for group activities especially within early years. This will help build children’s confidence, improve hand eye coordination and social interaction. Allowing them to have fun while learning is vital for these little ones.

Think about durability and investment for years to come

Playground markings should be an investment which last for years to come and so, our modern and creative designs bear this in mind. We have invested heavily in our manufacturing process and thermoplastic markings to ensure our designs stay vibrant and clear, even with high footfall.

Prioritise education and fun

Our interactive playground markings are multi-purpose and can be used in a range of activities including education. However, we always advise the schools we work with to ensure we are striking a balance between educational markings and fun. Our range of interactive playground markings cater to a range of requirements and can also help pupils explore key developments such as social play and understanding of their emotions and wellbeing. 

Take into account pupils with SEN

Pupils with special education needs will have different requirements and so, should be considered when designing a playground. Implementing markings which all pupils can engage with is essential for providing equal opportunities for play. If you are looking to implement SEN markings, our team will be happy to assist you with any questions are queries you may have.

The extremely durable and long lasting thermoplastic playground markings makes this the perfect solution for school playgrounds exposed to heavy foot traffic. The colourful designs are also a great way to improve the general aesthetics of your outdoor space, bringing added colour and excitement for school children to interact with during playtime.

We offer a variety of fun and interactive thermoplastic playground markings, including:

  • Basketball Courts
