About Us

Company Background and Philosophy

Since our inception in 1971, Signet Play, a specialised division of Signet Signs Ltd, has been steadfastly committed to enhancing educational environments. Our journey began with a vision to provide schools, colleges, and universities with bespoke, high-quality playground solutions.

We recognised the need for specialised services in the education sector and have since been dedicated to tailoring our offerings to meet these specific requirements. Our extensive range includes playground markings, playground equipment, school signs, and safety surfacing, each thoughtfully designed to enrich the educational experience with this website created as a hub for all things school related.

Comprehensive Services and Specialisations

At Signet Play, we are proud to offer playground markings, playground equipment, and playground solutions that stand out in the market for their exceptional quality and cohesiveness. We source our materials from globally recognised suppliers, ensuring each product is not only innovative but also robust and reliable. The convenience of acquiring school signs, playground markings, safety surfacing and play equipment from a single provider simplifies the process for our clients, making us a preferred choice in the sector.

Expertise and Growth

Our experience in the industry is marked by significant achievements, including the prestigious distinction of being one of only two companies in the UK to supply and install a clamber castle. This accomplishment reflects our innovative spirit and capability. The past four years have been a period of remarkable growth for Signet Play, during which we have expanded our operations threefold. This growth is a testament to our unwavering dedication to excellence, as evidenced by our outstanding 5/5 Google review rating. We attribute this success to our proactive approach to adopting the latest manufacturing technologies and expanding our team with skilled professionals.

Safety Standards and Quality Assurance

At the heart of our operations is an uncompromising commitment to safety and quality. Our adherence to the stringent British Standards BSEN1176 and BSEN1177 ensures the utmost safety in playground equipment and impact-absorbing surfaces. We also rigorously test our playground markings for skid resistance, prioritising the safety of all users. Our materials, such as thermoplastic and specially treated wood, are selected for their durability and resilience, safeguarding against environmental factors and ensuring long-term performance. Our thorough quality assurance processes are integral to our mission of delivering consistently safe and superior-quality products.


Sarah Jarvis: "Signet provided an outstanding range of playground markings, resilient against the daily wear and tear from 400 primary school children. The level of communication and value offered by their office and on-site team was exemplary. I highly recommend them for their professionalism and quality."

Jill Kewley: "The professionalism and efficiency shown during the installation of a clamber stack at our village primary school were impressive. The site was left immaculate, and the new climbing equipment has been a hit with the children. Signet Play is a remarkable company to partner with."
