Line Marking on school ground

The importance of playground line marking in schools

Remember the good ol’ days when you would hop, skip and jump to the finish line at recess? Or rushed out of the classroom to battle your friends at four square at lunch? Of course, you wouldn’t have thought about it then, but those games were made possible because of playground line marking. Now you’re working in a school or local government, line marking is on your radar. Perhaps the basketball court lines are fading, and students are fighting over whether the ball was out of bounds or new concrete is ready for its line marking debut. Whatever your interest, we’re glad you’re researching it because line marking is important for every school.     What is playground line marking? First, what exactly is playground line marking or schoolyard stencilling? Similarly to car park line marking or warehouse line marking, playground line marking is the process of painting stencils, markings or symbols on concrete, bitumen or brick to create boundaries in games and sporting activities. Line marking can be as simple as clean, white lines or feature vibrant colours and shapes to engage the little ones.  Popular playground line marking include Playground boundaries  Basketball Netball  Foursquare or handball Hopscotch  Snakes & Ladders Mazes  Word games   5 reasons playground line marking is important 1. Ignites learning experiences  Play is essential to child development because it facilitates learning. It aids in developing problem-solving skills, cognitive processing and memory, so creating as many opportunities for children to play is essential, especially at school. If spaces aren’t set up for play, e.g. concrete without schoolyard line paintings, students won’t play that game of hopscotch or imaginative game that will benefit their learning. 2. Encourages physical exercise  We’ve all heard the reports about the obesity rates rising in children, and inactivity is said to be one of the key factors. Technology has meant children spend more time indoors than ever before, with their eyes fixed on the screen, remaining sedentary. However, sports games like basketball, netball, tennis and handball, games made possible because of playground line markings, get kids outside and moving and keep them fit and healthy.    3. Improve outdoor facilities  Are you invested in your school’s reputation? Tired old bitumen with cracked line markings from days gone by doesn’t give the greatest impression! You may not have the budget to do much about the greying bitumen, but a fresh coat of line marking is doable. Schoolyard stencilling will lift the look of your school and show that maintaining facilities is a priority. 4. Activate forgotten spaces  If you’re managing a property, you want space to be utilised. You also need to keep crowd control in mind, with students evenly distributed in the playground. If you’ve got a patch of bitumen in the corner of the school that students avoid, you can create a space for sports games to encourage students to utilise it. 5. Keep children safe  Safety is, of course, the highest priority in schoolyards. With little kids, especially, keeping them in eyesight is easier when you have clearly defined boundaries where they need to remain. Line markings define areas in the playground or create boundaries for separation between grades.   How to choose quality line markers How do you choose a line marking or schoolyard stencilling company? Line marking specialists will adequately plan and design your playground line marking, so it’s 100% accurate. They will also use special long-lasting line marking paint so all that foot traffic won’t make a dent in the sparkling white lines!  At Kleenit, our line markers use airless spraying technology, which applies the paint more consistently and accurately.

Top line marking – Kleenit can mark it

Compliant line marking, keep within the lines of the law Whether you’re marking a thousand bays in a car park or indicating a factory floor walkway, there are dozens of rules and regulations that apply. If you have plenty of time on your hands, you can read the relevant Australian Standards. But it’s probably easier to leave it to Kleenit. Our professional line markers will make sure everything is up to standard and complies with the relevant legislation including disabled parking bays. We provide high quality Line Marking for Heliports, Car park surface and lane markings, Traffic Marking, ACROD (disability) line Marking and more. Pick your line marking paint Line marking paint comes in two basic types. Water-based paints are an economical option for low-traffic areas but for high-traffic or industrial applications, we recommend a tougher, solvent-based paint. We can also supply and apply durable chlorinated rubber-based paints. Typically, line markings last between two and five years before they need repainting. If yours just need a touch up, we can do that too. Hey, that's my parking spot?! We don’t only do lines. We do letters, stencilling, numbers, arrows and symbols too. So if you need parking bays clearly allocated to their commercial owners or apartment numbers, it’s all part of the service. We can even stencil paint your company logo to clearly mark your spot. Parking lots are our favourite blank canvas The question we’re most often asked is ‘How many cars can I fit in this car park?’ The answer, of course, depends on many factors including the width of the bays, how close together the rows are and how accessible the entrances and exits are. Sound complicated? It’s easy when you know how. All we need is a copy of your plans and we do the calculations for you. Stick to the trick and keep the concrete clean Paint doesn’t adhere well to dirty, wet or greasy surfaces. So the first thing we do is make sure the bitumen or concrete we’re going to paint is spotlessly clean. Depending on the job, this might involve high-pressure cleaning, acid etching or even diamond grinding. Our line markers have all the gear and all the experience. Washable walkways and durable line marks In heavy duty industrial applications, the floors can take a real beating from vehicles, oily boots and all sorts of chemicals. Because it’s important to keep your walkways clean for safety’s sake, our paints are not only durable, they’re easily cleaned. Top line marking after hours, we get busy when you're quiet During regular business hours, your car park or factory is going to be busy. And we hate trying to squeeze our line marking machines between parked cars. So we prefer to work when your premises are quietest. That can be during the day for an apartment block, or at night for a retail park. Whatever’s best for you suits us. Call in the line marking experts

Line marking for safety's sake Line marking is the most effective way to protect pedestrians and mitigate hazards created by high energy objects, in contrast, it is often one of the most neglected or overlooked safety requirements in the workplace, car parks or warehouses.

Well marked car parking bays help prevent chaos and collisions Any ground space where vehicles are moving could be a possible collision risk, so line marking is important to indicate traffic direction Line marking helps to identify the placement of objects, like fire safety equipment, pallets, inventory and rubbish bins etc. This is not only important for safety but improves organisation Line markings quickly guide people to emergency first aid equipment and can minimise injury or prevent a fatality.
