Frequently asked questions
Is it paint?
No, it is not paint. EduMarking playground markings are made of thermoplastic material, a long-life marking product that is best practice in the construction industry.
- What is the difference between paint and thermoplastic material?
Thermoplastic material is well known for its longevity. Thermoplastic is melted onto the surface using a gas (propane) torch. Our playground markings are manufactured using high quality thermoplastic material and installed by our team of professional installers. Paint is a cheaper product. However, it fades quickly and does not last very long.
- How long does this product last?
Thermoplastics are extremely resilient to the test of time. Our markings are long-lasting and can last up to 10 times longer than paint.
Is the product non-slip?
EduMarking Playground Markings are non-slip. All of our markings are supplied with a coating to help prevent them from becoming slippery in the wet.
What surface can this product be applied on?
Most hard surfaces like asphalt and concrete.
My playground area is also used as a car park area. Can EduMarking be applied if the cars are parked on the asphalt area?
No. We do not recommend applying EduMarking playground markings where there is road traffic.
Is there a product guarantee?
Yes, we provide a 5-year guarantee against manufacturing defects.
