PermaRoute: Transforming School Playgrounds with Social Distance Markings

In the current times, social distancing has become a crucial practice in our daily lives, especially in settings like schools. At Heskins, we believe in being proactive, not just reactive, when it comes to addressing pressing needs. With schools reopening across Europe, we’ve dedicated ourselves to finding innovative solutions for organizing school playgrounds to ensure the safety of students and staff. One of our standout products, PermaRoute, has proven to be an excellent choice for creating social distance markings in playgrounds, and we’d like to share how.

The Criteria for Effective Social Distance Markings

Creating social distance markings in playgrounds involves more than just placing lines on the ground. We established specific criteria to ensure that the markings are not only effective but also durable and easy to understand:

  1. High Visibility: The chosen colour must be highly visible on both dark tarmac and light concrete surfaces. Ensuring visibility is essential for guiding students and staff safely.
  2. Adhesive Quality: The adhesive used must have strong bonding capabilities for both concrete and tarmac. This ensures that the markings stay in place, even in outdoor conditions.
  3. Durability: The product must be tough enough to withstand external elements. It should endure weather conditions and constant foot traffic without deteriorating.
  4. Clarity of Shapes: Shapes used for marking should be easy to understand, ensuring that everyone, including young children, can follow the guidelines with ease.
  5. Removability: Eventually, the markings will need to be removed or replaced. Unlike paint or resin solutions, the chosen product should allow for easy removal without leaving permanent marks or damage.

Why We Chose PermaRoute

In our quest to find the ideal solution for school playgrounds, we settled on PermaRoute, specifically the yellow variant, PermaRoute H6903Y. Here’s why:

High Visibility: PermaRoute’s vibrant yellow colour ensures clear visibility on both light and dark surfaces. This versatility in visibility is crucial for guiding students effectively.

Adhesive Excellence: PermaRoute’s adhesive quality is exceptional. It adheres securely to both concrete and tarmac, ensuring that the markings stay in place under various conditions.

Durability in External Conditions: Playground markings are exposed to the elements year-round. PermaRoute is designed to be tough and robust, capable of withstanding external challenges without deteriorating.

Shapes and Versatility: One of the standout features of PermaRoute is its versatility in creating lines and shapes. This made it an ideal choice for designing various social distance markings, including box shapes, arrows, and distance indicators like 2 meters (1.5 meters or 1 meter can be easily created as well).

Immediate Supply: All these markings can be immediately supplied as required, ensuring that schools can quickly implement their social distancing plans.
