Sportsafe UK has recently installed 2 sets of premium line markings at two prestigious educational establishments in Essex. Sportsafe UK installed bespoke line markings in two of the main sports halls in the University of Essex and Braintree College.

At Essex University many of the sports line markings were worn and faded. This impacted upon the athletes as the faded lines caused confusion during games. Essex University approached Sportsafe enquiring about re-laying their sports line markings. Sportsafe UK were delighted to accept the challenge. After a brief consultation period Sportsafe UK produced a series of options that Essex University could take. Essex University accepted one of Sportsafe UK’s options and authorised the installation.

The installation was delivered within the budget and within days of the request. The new lines do not only look fantastic, but they include sports boundaries for over 6 sports on floor of the sports hall.  During this installation Sportsafe UK highlighted several court markings, and highlighted regulation competition basketball markings on the existing floor.

At Braintree College Sportsafe UK installed a bespoke set of competition standard Basketball line markings. This installation was designed to support the training of Great Britain’s Under 20’s basketball team, and to create a venue for several international basketball tournaments. Sportsafe UK also installed 2 bespoke, competition standard Basketball hoops as part of the installation. The installation was completed in the proposed timescale and within a very competitive budget. A short testimonial from Mark Lloyd (lecturer in Sports) can be seen below.

“As is normal with this type of work funding and bureaucracy can slow things down which left us with quite a tight timescale. Once we contacted Sportsafe and they visited the site to take a look at the situation events began to happen very quickly. Sportsafe came in with a very competitive price which was accepted and they managed to ensure they altered their existing schedules to ensure we had the court laid in time for the tournament. The tournament was due to start on a Saturday and Sportsafe engineers arrived to commence work on the Monday prior to this. All work went according to plan and Sportsafe finished the marking a day ahead of schedule. Thecourt markings looked great and really complimented the other equipment at the facility. Team GB were over the moon with the new facility and this was a great boost to morale. We at Colchester Institute, The College at Braintree and Team GB would like to thank Sportsafe for helping us to make the facility a top quality venue worthy of use by the national squad” (Mark Lloyd Sports Lecturer)

Both these installations are great examples of how Sportsafe UK has worked with a customer to produce high quality bespoke surfaces meeting the exact customer needs. Sportsafe UK are proud to work with such prestigious establishments and support the next generation of athletes.  If you have any enquiries or would like to arrange a complimentary site visit please don’t hesitate to call our team on 0844 581 0550.
