Our laser guided line marking system is manually driven, using only a small amount of electricity for the pump and line marking guide. This eliminates the need for fuel driven machinery which in turn reduces our companies carbon footprint. 

Artificial Sports Surface Line Marking

Whether you are a Tennis Club, Leisure Centre, Council or School we understand that your sports surface is an asset and keeping it looking it's best at all times is important to you and the users. 


We use laser guided technology to ensure perfectly straight lines and right angles, leaving you with professional looking pitches and courts every time. 
All Lines and zones are measured to the latest sports industry standards. 


We have installed Tennis, Netball, Basketball, Hockey, Football, FA 5V5,7V7 and 9V9, Rugby, Soccer, Lacrosse, Athletics, Running Tracks and many more. 



 

 

We installed the Football Lines and Logo on the pitches for The Star Sixes Football Games at The 02 Arena London 2017 and SSE Hydro Glasgow 2019

We can provide tailored or bespoke measurements for customers who have a synthetic sports area that may not accommodate a full-size pitch or court. And designs for customers who require something other than standard sports markings (e.g training grids). 


All of our professionally trained operatives are competent in the installation of your lines, to give you the best possible outcome for your sports surface and the needs of its users.

Lowering Our Impact...

Natural Green Organic Logo.png

With the ever-growing concerns about the environment, wildlife and how the products we use can affect them, at Sports And Courts Line Marking Ltd we feel it is important to keep our impact to a minimum.


Our laser guided line marking system is manually driven, using only a small amount of electricity for the pump and line marking guide. This eliminates the need for fuel driven machinery which in turn reduces our companies carbon footprint. 


We use a flexible water based, non-hazardous paint to mark out your lines, reducing harmful fumes and toxins given off by products such as solvent based paints. This makes our paint much safer for our staff, the surface, users and the environment which is great news for everyone!


Our synthetic sports turf paint comes in a variety of colours and is suitable for use on Sand-filled, Sand-dressed, Rubber Crumb 3G and water based Synthetic Surfaces.

Re-marking of the lines on synthetic sports surfaces is recommended every 6 months depending on the surface condition and level of use. In most instances our customers have only needed an over-mark once every 12 - 18 months after the first few applications.


Line painting using water-based paints usually happens between March and October. The paint needs a dry surface and ground temperatures of a minimum of 8 degrees to fully cure. Due to weather and Temperature conditions during the winter months it is not advised to have lines marked out, get booked in with us as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. If you do require your lines marking out during the winter period use our enquiry form to contact us and we can discuss alternative options with you.


It is also useful to note that your sports surface will need be out of use for the duration of the day(s) we are on site. This is for the surface user’s safety whilst we are using the equipment and so that the paint has the optimal time to cure before normal use commences.

Water Based vs Two Pack Polyurethane

Apart from being better for the environment, the paint we use has other benefits compared with Polyurethane based materials.


Although Two Pac can last longer per application, repeated application can cause build-up of the lines,

which can

  •     alter the play of the ball

  •     cause damaged surfaces

  •     flake off leaving large paint chips and debris on the surface


And more importantly it can potentially become a tripping hazard for the user which is a health and safety risk nobody wants on their surfaces! The cost of Two Pac can be more expensive per application than water-based paints.


Water based acrylic paints are designed to be durable but also wear down evenly with use and play between annual over-marks so that it doesn’t create a build-up of paint. It is a flexible paint designed especially for artificial sports turf so it moves with the sword of the synthetic grass. This means it doesn’t become brittle and start to leave paint debris in and on the carpet.


With water-based paint the even wear and fading also means that if you change your mind about what you are using the surface for, you can let it fade out completely over time and have brand new lines applied. This cannot be said for polyurethane-based paints which would need to be removed with specialist equipment and chemicals and at an extra cost to you.

 

Painted Lines vs Inlaid Lines

Did you know that painted sports lines are a better option for your surface than inlaid lines?


Inlaid lines are usually cut into the carpet during installation or can be added after if the customer requires additional lines. Although this looks great and is a permanent marking, requiring little on-going maintenance, in time it can become a potential weak point where the line joins the carpet.

 

This can cause lifting seams and gaps where the seams have separated with standard surface use and maintenance. Which can pose a health and safety issue for the users and result in an unused surface with costly repairs or ultimately a brand-new carpet.
