Porous Asphalt is a reliable trustworthy company with 20 years experience and are experts in the installation of asphalt playgrounds and with the repair and maintenance of any sports surfaces.
Asphalt is typically easy to maintain and a cost-effective surfacing option which is widely used not only on roads and pathways but largely as part of the school and public playground surfaces.
The options for an asphalt playground are traditionally found across primary schools and academies throughout the UK for a number of reasons, though what you may not know is that there are now more types of asphalt and tarmac covering available than ever before.
Asphalt is a major financial and time-saving boon for schools and authorities due to its sheer ease of maintenance and cleaning, and for its safety factors.
It can be used on netball courts and standard play surfaces.
If you are in need of a local tarmac supplier offering a range of options and surfacing types, we will always be on hand to help.
Playground Flooring UK
Playground flooring UK and beyond may vary in terms of look, material and constitution, but asphalt and tarmac is commonly used for a number of reasons.
For one, it is a long-lasting surface resource which can resist regular traffic for years on end. This makes it the perfect choice for playgrounds and schoolyards where children are likely to make regular use of these surfaces.
"We were really impressed with the installation of our playground. Not only was the installation done to a high standard, but we also had some amazing graphics installed which the children love. We would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to improve their school play area."
What’s more, it saves considerable time and energy from a school and authority perspective. Unlike other flooring and outdoor paving materials, macadam is produced and laid to be resistant against an incredible amount of use.
It really is a wonderful material – and we highly recommend you take a closer look at the various types of asphalt and tarmac we offer if you are a nearby school or if you run a play area in our surrounding area.
Play flooring also needs to be safe as well as resistant for years to come. Asphalt playground installations are hardy and are as safe and robust as possible for children to run across and use – it is a remarkably soft surface which still retains strength.
We can’t recommend high-quality asphalt for playgrounds and schoolyards use enough. No two playgrounds are the same, but the best ones all opt for asphalt and tarmac for resilience and safety.
Asphalt Playground Games
We all remember playing schoolyard games to some extent, and one of the brilliant features of modern playground asphalt is that it can be used to an almost limitless creative effect.
Asphalt playground games can be supplied and/or painted on to last hundreds and thousands of uses, whether you lay out a full football pitch, a netball court, tennis facilities or otherwise. Traditional games can be easily designed and painted, or even provided in the form of thermoplastic markings.
Some popular thermoplastic games and markings include:
- Snakes and ladders
- Number lines/alphabet lines
- Number grids
Thermoplastic markings will likely offer you more durability and longevity for years to come, meaning there will be little to no need for a painting touch-up. Getting creative about the games you provide as part of your play area is a great idea.
What games do your children like to play? Are you due to resurfacing your yard completely? It may be time to start thinking about some creative ways for your pupils to play during downtime.
For many schools and academies, playground resurfacing can be somewhat daunting.
Not only do schools worry about the potential cost of relaying and resurfacing, but they are also concerned about the amount of time and effort they need to set aside to get the job done.
Resurfacing during term time is often difficult to arrange, too. We aim to, therefore, make things as straightforward and as cost-effective for our clients as possible.
We understand that time and money are precious to educational bodies and, as such, we are always on hand to help you find quick-setting, long-lasting playground asphalt which will weather years to come and will reduce the need for additional funds to be spent on regular maintenance and touching up.
If your schoolyard or playground is looking a little worse for wear after years of use, or if you are concerned about the safety of the surfacing your children are running around on, considering a full asphalt resurfacing is a fantastic idea.
The playground surfaces we provide not only promise durability and plenty of opportunity for creativity and flair, but also extensive drainage.
They can be used for sports courts and multi-use games areas along with standard playgrounds with graphics and markings.
We make sure to use porous macadam to allow for water to easily flow through in and out of all surfaces we install. We can also provide further bespoke drainage systems and designs to ensure that standing water and flooding risks are completely removed.
These surfaces not only need to be durable and versatile, but they also need to be kept dry and safe for children to use on a daily basis. We are the closest experts in tarmac in our region for many schools and bodies, and as such, we make sure we take a professional and responsible stance with each and every project we oversee.
It is important to us that you receive a bespoke asphalt playground that withstands use, inspires creative play and which reduces costs for years to come.
