When choosing your flooring it is important to take into account longevity, installation, maintenance, acoustics and sustainability. Here are some of the school flooring options we provide:
- Vinyl flooring and tiles – Vinyl flooring is the most popular choice in school flooring across schools, universities and educational establishments. The flooring is made from polyvinyl chloride (known as PVC). This is really durable and great for heavy traffic. This type of school flooring would be ideally suited to hallways. Vinyl flooring can also come in a variety of colours and styles. This is an important consideration to make as the flooring should have functionality, but also should be stylish and bright. Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) offer the same functionality as PVC vinyl tiles but come in a wider variety of styles and patterns. These may be suited to specific classrooms or lecture theatres, to invoke a creative environment for the students.
- Carpet and Tiles – Carpets in the educational establishments will be fibre bonded constructions. These carpets are made to be tough and are suited to areas with heavy foot traffic. They are designed to withstand being pulled apart by students. These carpets are very cost effective and offer sound absorbing properties, which make them ideal for certain areas/classrooms in your education establishment. Carpet tiles offer the same properties as carpets and are easy to install. The difference between using carpets and tiles are the range of styles they offer. They can be suited for younger students and nurseries, as you can make unique patterns from them.
- Safety and Allergy approved flooring – JDF Flooring install school flooring suitable for everyone and make sure all accessibility requirements are made. Commercial carpets supplied by JDF Flooring are designed to protect the student from mould and dust mites. This is done by protective products embedded into the carpets. Dust mites and mould are regular triggers for asthma and allergy sufferers.
- Ultra Tough Wearing Floors – This type of school flooring is designed for extreme usage, the imitation concrete is suitable for schools and resists damage more than regular vinyl or tiles. But you don’t have to sacrifice durability over style as this form of school flooring comes in a huge range of shades and finishings.
