Safetyshop Encourages Schools to Prepare for Summer Games and Sports Days with Line Marking Equipment Deals

Workplace safety equipment specialist, Safetyshop, has heralded the start of the summer and sunnier weather with a reminder to schools and sports clubs to mark out sports courts and playgrounds with the help of line marking equipment and paint.

The UK’s leading safety products manufacturer has recommended that schools, councils and other educational institutions get ready for the summer as children will be playing outside both on playgrounds and playing fields.

Having clearly marked playgrounds can be for sports courts for sports such as tennis, netball or basketball or they could even be used for other traditional games such as hopscotch.

In order to ensure that the line markings last a long time and don’t require the same money to be spent every year schools could use the line marking paint and line marking equipment available from Safetyshop.

Line marking in schools isn’t just for on the playground either, car parks and restricted areas can be marked out to prevent children from walking into dangerous and hazardous areas.

Ed Barnes, Product Manager at Safetyshop commented, “line marking is often thought of as something industrial and factory businesses need to consider, but a large percentage of our customer base for these products is in fact schools and the public sector”

“Effective use of our Easyline products, available for purchase and delivery online, can help mark out a wide range of floor markings whether it’s for fun or for important safety issues”

“The Easyline products have been chosen by Safetyshop due to their sharp appearance and their durability, ensuring schools or businesses won’t have to frequently repaint lines”

The range of line marking equipment is just one of the many products available for businesses as well as safety signsprotective clothing and many other important workplace health and safety products.

Optima Provides Stylish And Safe Glass Partitioning Solutions For The Schools Of England As Part Of The Governments Building Schools For The Future Initiative

optimasystems

The government Building Schools for the Future scheme aims to rebuild 250 schools per year over the next ten years. Its main goal is to have every one of the 3,500 secondary schools in England completely refurbished by the year 2020. Building Schools for the Future is the largest ever school buildings investment programme.

Optima has been working closely with many schools, Local Education Authorities (LEAs), contractors and architects across the country to help provide outstanding and inspirational educational environments which will supply the children of England with comfortable, safe and clean surroundings in which they can develop and flourish.

Optima has developed atrium glazing, glass partitioning, glass doors and custom advanced drywall for several schools across England. Optima restored the tired teaching rooms of Bishop Ramsey School, Ruislip, where a high level of acoustics was required. Optima’s Revolution 97 mullion-free double glazed system was the ideal solution.

For enhanced safety, fire rated screens were installed within all fire escape routes and corridors within the school for safety, achieving a combination of 30 minutes and 60 minutes integrity and insulation. Optima hopes to be able to install fire rated screens into every school in England, to safeguard the lives of millions of children.

Optima has also recently completed work on refurbishing classrooms and school buildings at Mundy Primary School in Heanor, Derbyshire. Here, Optima implemented its Mistral partitioning system due to its quick fitting time which meant the refurbishment could be completed without having to close the school during important term time. 

A recent technical report published by PriceWaterhouseCoopers revealed that the BSF scheme is making excellent progress across England. The report also found that both staff and pupils at refurbished schools are satisfied that the changes have greatly helped to improve their learning environment. The scheme continues to deliver huge benefits for teaching and learning alike.

Optima will continue to work with educational establishments to improve standards for young minds.
