EPIC Playground Surfaces

‘Education and Play In Colour’ is a system we’ve designed to transform outdoor learning and play for kids. The aim of the game is to help pupils and teachers meet national curriculum requirements, and have a load of fun while doing it. EPIC surfaces are made from coloured artificial grass and incorporate games and educative markings. They’re super durable and can be used all year round, too.

Physical Education

We understand the importance of physical activity for children. The idea behind EPIC is that children can participate in curriculum-required activities, and enjoy themselves, too. Agility, basic movements, control and balance, competitive games and coordination can all be practiced on a tailored EPIC surface. Our experience tells us that children and teachers love EPIC because its bright, colourful and safe.

Outdoor Learning

Taking a break from the indoors can be inspiring and energising. Our EPIC surfaces can be designed to incorporate all sorts of numbers, letters, phonetics and educative games. Let’s nurture minds and bodies at the same time.

Outdoor Play

Imagination plays a great part in the work we do. From underwater worlds to oversized butterflies, we know what kids love. Fun and play forms an important part of a child’s early development, so we strive to create environments that allow just this. Life’s a playground.

EPIC does exactly what it says on the tin. The best thing about it is that it’s totally bespoke. We’re happy to listen to your needs, and come up with something great together.

Let’s be bold.
