A dedicated and professional team, we install playground markings and equipment across the entire UK.
first4playgrounds are a North East based company specialising in the design, manufacture, supply and installation of playground markings and playground equipment to schools and Local Authorities throughout the UK.
Since 2013 the company have completed several hundred playground markings and playground equipment installs throughout the UK from our base in the North East of England. We work closely with schools and Local Authorities on the design phase of each project to ensure that we fully understand the needs and aims before preparing detailed computer generated plans of the install. Once approved we then meticulously plan dates and times of the install to make sure we don’t impact upon the daily routines of the school or facility.
The playground markings are manufactured on our own fully computerised large format cutting machine to get highly detailed, crisp and accurately fitting graphic shapes out of thermoplastic base sheets. We only use the highest quality preformed thermoplastics for our playground markings. Manufactured to exceed ISO 9002, these thermoplastic markings are hard wearing, non toxic, environmentally friendly and can last up to 10 times longer than traditional painted products… plus, most important of all, they look great!
Adding playground markings are an exciting, colourful and cost effective way for schools and Local Authorities to brighten up plain tarmac areas. Our vibrant designs improve children’s play time with firm favourites such as Hopscotch and Snakes and Ladders which can also provide useful teaching aids for numeracy and literacy.
Our markings are manufactured using our in-house state of the art GlobalMax 1508 high pressure water jet at our North-East based factory. Our markings are non-fade, made from high quality durable thermoplastic and come with a three year guarantee*.
* Depending upon the age and condition of the tarmac

What our customers are saying...
We are extremely pleased with the service and outcome! The children were amazed to see your colourful designs and it has really breathed a new lease of life into a ‘tired’ playground.
first4playgrounds were absolutely fantastic. They couldn’t have been any more professional in all aspects of their work, they go straight to the top of our recommended contractors list.
The work was carried out to a high standard by pleasant and affable workmen. I would not hesitate to recommend first4playgrounds to schools and colleges. Thank you.
The children have been so pleased with markings. I looked on the CCTV camera and could see them playing on them all day. Thank you very much.
Thank you very much. The service you provided was excellent. You were very adaptable to the timings of our school day and our needs. What is excellent is that the markings were tailored to suit our needs. We adapted the brochure ideas and nothing was a problem. I can’t wait for phase two to begin. Thank you for a prompt service.
Thanks for the markings – they look great! We look forward to using your services again in the future.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the work that has been completed at Stakeford Primary School. The customer service we have received has been outstanding from start to finish and the work has been done to a really high standard. The children love the new markings. We will certainly be using your company again, many thanks.
The school logo is very impressive and is a really good visual point for all parents, children and visitors that come into the school.
We are very happy with the service we received from first4playgrounds, from the first point of contact through to the Alphabet Snail being installed and Invoice being received the communication was prompt and friendly. Highly Recommended!
