Which Line Marking Machine Is Right for Your School's Field?

If you're in charge of maintaining the grounds for a school, you'll know how important the right line marking equipment is. It's the difference between strong, clear lines that last well and don't need constant maintenance, and faded lines which need lots of extra work. The right line marking equipment is especially important if sports are a big part of the school curriculum. A pitch which isn't marked properly could lead to disagreements during matches, and won't be teaching kids how to play in a professional setting.

We've listed three types of line marking machine, along with details on how they work. Read on for help picking the perfect line marking machine for your school field.

Aerosol line marking machine

Aerosol line marking machines are a cost-effective option. They work by inserting an aerosol can and rolling the machine along the ground. It's easy to replace the can, and there's no risk of spilling paint. You can choose from a variety of different colors, so this is a great option for primary schools, where you might like to mark lines in bright colors to help younger children understand. These are available with two or four wheels, and there's a simple trigger to activate the paint can. Perfect if you want to get the job done quickly and easily.

Transfer line marking machine

Transfer line marking machines are a mid-range option, making them ideal if you're working on a budget and don't need 100% professional-standard pitches. You'll simply fill the machine with paint, choose the correct size wheel for your marking, and wheel the machine across the grass. Large tires and an adjustable handle make the machine easy to use, and there's very little that can go wrong or need repairing - bonus over more technical models. However, coverage may not be as even or long-lasting as it would using a more expensive machine.

Spray line marking machine

Spray line marking machines cost more than the previous options and include more complex features. They work by spraying lines onto the ground, rather than rolling them. It's possible to adjust the pressure and width to get the exact lines you want, and coverage will be even. Paint will last longer, and the machine is suitable for use on hard surfaces and tarmac as well as grass - just make sure you choose the right paint for each job. This is a good all-rounder, ideal for larger schools, or schools which need professional-grade pitch markings.

All schools are different - be sure to choose the right line marking machine for yours.

Construction Contractors: Dealing with Problems

Hello, there! My name is Debbie Jones. Welcome to my new blog which is all about the problems you can face if you own a property. Last year, I moved into a place in Sydney, Australia and almost immediately started having problems. The electrical system began to fail and I didn't know why. I called in an electrical contractor who examined the wiring and discovered that there was a leak in my roof which was allowing water to drip onto a fuse box. I called in a roofing contractor who advised that I have the entire roof replaced. I had this work carried out and then had the walls of the property reinforced in order to provent further problems.
