When you’re walking into any school, university, or government facility, there are always a large number of people and hence a lot of foot traffic. Therefore, durability must be at the forefront when selecting your new flooring. From classrooms to gymnasiums, these multifunctional spaces are incredibly diverse and require an array of different flooring needs. At Ashmore Carpets, we work with you to find the solution to all your education flooring needs.
When considering school flooring, there are many internal spaces you need to consider, all with their own unique and different flooring needs. Common factors that need to be considered are durability, slip resistance, and liquid and chemical resistance. On top of that, accessibility for wheelchairs, walking frames, and in some cases, scooters. As you can imagine, the considerations when selecting your new school flooring can be overwhelming. Let our experienced flooring consultants guide you through the selection process and assist you in choosing your new flooring.
Sourcing flooring that not only has excellent acoustics for lecture halls, quiet libraries for groups of students or sleeping rooms in daycare centres, all while complying with safety regulations of non-slip safety standards, can be difficult. We have done the hard work for you and selected our favourite school flooring options. It would be fair to say that classrooms are where students tend to spend the majority of their time. Therefore, the space needs to be comfortable and inviting and provide interest as they continue to grow and learn.
Carpet tiles are a fantastic option for many education flooring requirements. Every busy school and government environment needs a quiet and comfortable atmosphere. If you’re looking for acoustically sound flooring, one way to minimise the overall noise of the space is to select carpet tiles. They are a great option as they absorb the sound rather than the sound bouncing off, as it does with hard flooring. When using carpet tiles in a government or education space like schools and daycare centres, we recommend that the tiles be stuck down. There are many advantages to carpet tiles. They are easy to install, come with an inbuilt underlay that’s already cut to size, have less waste and require minimal maintenance, making them a cost effective option. They also come in various colours and patterns, giving you endless opportunities for creativity.
Vinyl planks are incredibly versatile. They come in various thicknesses and styles, including marble, timber, slate, ceramic tiles or planks. They are low maintenance, easy to clean and protect against scratches. As a bonus, we have commercial grade vinyl planks which are also waterproof making them suitable for wet areas like science centres and home economic kitchens. Vinyl planks are also very well suited to hallways and common areas as they are hard wearing and can handle a lot of foot traffic. In recent years, manufacturers have specifically designed acoustic backing and underlay that help reduce and absorb the impact of sound. Thus, creating a more peaceful environment for all to enjoy.
