The best flooring for schools

Due to the number of activities that take place in a school, finding the right flooring can be challenging.

The key factors that need to be taken into consideration are safety, hygiene, durability, and acoustics.

Safety flooring for schools

The commonest cause of accidents in schools is trips and falls. With high numbers of students moving from room to room, non-slip flooring is essential.

Altro slip-resistant flooring meets and exceeds safety standards and reduces the risk of slips and falls. Altro products achieve R10 slip resistance, even when wet, throughout the lifetime of the floor.

Hygienic flooring for schools

As well as slip-resistance, you also need flooring that won’t harbour germs and can be cleaned easily.

Vinyl flooring is hygienic, easy to maintain and can be treated with an anti-bacterial coating. If your flooring is properly fitted and coves to the walls, this will help to stop dirt from gathering around the perimeter

Polyflor is a leading manufacturer of specialist flooring solutions, including safety flooring, homogeneous vinyl floors, sports flooring, acoustic flooring, heterogeneous floors, rubber floors and luxury vinyl flooring. Polyflor’s hygienic products are ideal for school canteens, science labs and domestic science rooms.

Hardwearing flooring for schools

With hundreds of students moving around the school premises every day, the floor surface needs to be tough and highly durable.

Almost every area of a school has a high football, and non-slip vinyl flooring is a popular choice because it’s hardwearing, easy to clean, comfortable underfoot and creates the type of surface that will muffle noise.

Amtico Flooring produces luxury vinyl tiles and other flooring options designed for high-traffic environments such as schools. Amtico is manufactured from several layers that are laminated together to create a highly durable surface.

Sound-reducing flooring for schools

The acoustic properties of flooring in schools also needs to be taken into consideration. The noise of footsteps in corridors and the movement of chairs in classrooms can be disruptive to study.

A school flooring solution should be able to significantly reduce noise levels and offer vital soundproofing. Vinyl flooring solutions provide a good level of noise reduction, while rubber underlay can provide additional soundproofing.

Specialist carpets and carpet tiles are highly functional, and a practical option for quiet study rooms and libraries.

They also produce performance barrier system carpet tiles and entrance matting products that protect internal floors from dirt and moisture brought in by foot.

Burmatex carpet solutions are ideal in school settings where noise has to be kept to a minimum.
