General education areas

Multi-purpose halls – assembly, dining, junior sports/activities

For areas that need to withstand foot traffic, chairs, desks, sports equipment and frequent wash downs, you need high performance flooring . Choose from options that provide acoustic properties to reduce noise and enhanced resilience to keep flooring looking good for longer.

If time and money are a concern, you can easily install quick fit solutions, even over wooden floors.

Investment in quality and aesthetics is always worthwhile, especially where a paying public helps you underwrite the running costs of the facilities.

Classrooms, open plan areas, activity areas, lecture theatres, seminar rooms

High demand for flexible spaces means that classrooms may also serve as open plan study areas or activity spaces, so flexibility is important when selecting the interior surfaces. All our safety flooring can be cut and shaped to aid zoning for learning, play or organisational needs. Special designs and themes can also be incorporated.

Smooth and rubber flooring can be used in dry areas, but where there are taps, basins, water fountains, wet play etc, safety flooring will keep children and staff safe underfoot.

The choice of colour and design has been demonstrated to contribute to learning and development. With this in mind, we offer ranges with up to 40 colours to choose from.
