Educational facilities like K-12 public schools, colleges, and universities have specific flooring requirements. Seamless, fluid-applied epoxy flooring for schools is the sought-after flooring option and proved to be a beneficial approach.
So what are the key benefits of epoxy flooring for schools?
- Wear and Abrasion Resistant
Educational institution flooring endures constant foot traffic and abuse from students. Specially formulated Floor coating products will stand up to harsh conditions and heavy traffic. They can also withstand dirt and grease, as well as frequent cleanings. Fluid-applied epoxy/polyurethane flooring does not like other flooring options that only look great for a period of time after installation. Epoxy flooring forms a physical bond with the substrate and connect them together for a long-lasting, nice looking floor that will serve for decades.
- Customizable Anti-Slip
Epoxy flooring with slip-resistant is designed to help reduce slipperiness and increase traction. Slip-resistant flooring is extremely important for protecting students, staff, and visitors in facilities. It is available in a number of finishes and textures to meet the various needs and provide balanced slip resistance with easy cleanability.
- Easy to Clean
Resinous floors can prevent material from being absorbed into the surface, making cleanup easier. Furthermore, the whole floor is seamless meaning no seams or joints hold less dirt and are easier to clean.
- Low Maintenance Cost
Properly installed epoxy flooring requires no waxing, and no repolishing. These reduced maintenance requirements can lower the maintenance cost significantly.
- Hygienic and Sanitary
Epoxy flooring not only protects school or college’s floors from germs, yeast, fungus, and mildew, but it also helps to preserve the health and well-being of students and faculty members. Some floor coating products have EPA-registered antimicrobial component that inhibits microorganism development.
- Chemical Resistant
Certain resinous flooring options are resistant to chemicals, fats, and grease, making it the perfect choice for installation in dining halls or school cafeterias. From kindergarten, where children still love messy play, to university labs, where chemicals are utilized on a daily basis, you can always find a floor coating system to meet the needs.
- Customized Design & Decor
School should be a place of wonder, captivating the youthful mind. Design is a vital component of any flooring installation, and epoxy flooring can transform a boring classroom into a fascinating one. Most floor coating manufacturers offer huge amounts of color selections so any school can find the right school colors. Professional installers like AI Coating can also help to build unique flooring finishes that integrate the school logo and branding.
