Which paint should I use?
Our Super Striper paint is designed as a road paint, for marking on concrete, asphalt and other hard floors. It is ideal for marking car parks and warehouses etc. Our Super Supreme paint is a heavier duty version of the Super Striper paint, designed for use in high traffic areas as it is more durable and tougher than the Super Striper paint. Our Athletic paint is designed for marking out sports fields and grass pitches.

What width of stripes will my striper make?
Our striping machines can be adjusted to mark lines between 2.5 and 4.5 inches.
How do you adjust the width of the stripe on the Super Striper or the Athletic Striper?
It’s simple. Just release the pinch lock on the handle and slide the handle up or down on the post to the desired width marking shown on the post. Lock the pinch lock and you are ready to stripe.
Can the handle from the Super Striper or the Athletic Striper be used free hand?
Yes, both the Super Striper and the Athletic Striper handles can be used free hand. Simply release the pinch lock and remove the handle from the machine. Place a can of paint in the handle and away you go. Remember, don’t tilt the handle forward or the can will become off balance.
Will other brands of paint work in your machines?
Our machines are designed for use with our paints. We cannot guarantee other brands of paint will work with our machines. Though, we are confident that our paints and line marking equipment are the best on the market - so using our paints with our machine will give you the best possible results. Also, using other brands of paint will void the lifetime guarantee on our line marking equipment.
Will the paint damage the grass?
Our athletic paint is designed for use on grass, so it is completely safe for use. Our Easy Marker paint may stunt the growth of the grass, but it will not kill it. Our road paint is more acidic than the athletic paint, so it could burn grass.
How do I get an even start or stop to my lines?
If you place a piece of card or paper on the ground at the starting or stopping point of the line, it will create a nice square line.
What makes your paint better?
All of our paint is LOADED with pigment to give you a bright, long lasting application. Also, no one has a 10 year Guarantee on paint or a Lifetime Guarantee on their equipment and no one can beat our customer service.
