The floor is crucial to creating a setting conducive to studying, however to do this it needs to be able to maintain an anti-slip, easily cleanable surface despite constantly high levels of foot traffic, potential spillages of food and drink, frequent cleaning and dropped items.
Failing to meet the above criteria could lead to the floor failing, which means that the students will have to learn on unclean, unsightly and uninspiring surfaces.
The seamless, impervious and decorative nature of Flowcrete UK’s resin flooring solutions are ideally suited to the demands that floors will experience across the various areas of an educational complex. This includes attractive, ultra-high gloss epoxy floor finishes for classrooms and corridors, antimicrobial flooring for kitchens, heavy-duty epoxy and high strength polyurethane systems for maintenance areas as well as colourful sports hall surfaces.
Many larger educational facilities will require a multi-storey car parking facility for all the students, teachers, extended staff, parents and visitors. The floor area here should not be overlooked, as it is often the first impression many people will have of the establishment. A colourful, robust deck coating solution should be applied that can withstand the constant movement of vehicles as well as spillages of automotive oils and exposure to the elements.
The Floorzone allows architects and designers to source every element required for a high performance floor, all from one supplier and under one warranty. This solution allows for efficient, space saving underfloor heating as well as noise reducing acoustic foam to be incorporated under a high performance screed – all topped with a long lasting, fit-for-purpose resin finish.
