A practical classroom is a space where pupils or students can learn and practice practical skills. Consider, for example, a technology room, a cooking room or a laboratory.

Because various machines and tools are often used, a practice room floor must meet specific requirements to create an optimal learning and working environment.

Our floor systems are installed with care and expertise, so that they seamlessly meet the needs of the practice classroom within your educational institution.

What properties should a practice room floor have?

A practice room floor must meet several important properties to ensure a safe, hygienic and functional environment. Here are the essential features we look for when choosing a practice room floor:

  • Slip resistance for the safety of students and teachers;
  • Wear resistance to ensure the durability of the floor;
  • High load-bearing capacity to withstand the loads of heavy machinery;
  • Easy to clean and resistant to chemicals for a hygienic environment;
  • Sound-dampening to promote a quiet learning environment;
  • Resistant to point loads to prevent damage during intensive use.

What requirements does the Arbo impose on practice room floors?

The Arbo, or the Working Conditions Act, also sets a number of requirements for practice room floors. These requirements relate to the health and safety of employees and pupils or students working in the practical classroom. According to the Arbo, a practice room floor must:

  • A general (minimum) requirement of the Arbo, which is imposed on the floor for a practice room, is that the floor must be sufficiently non-slip, free of bumps and holes, and easy to clean.
  • Floors in a practice room must comply with various NEN standards for floors, such as NEN-EN 14041, which sets out the essential properties for different floor types.
  • If the practice room involves food preparation or processing, the floor must meet HACCP standards. HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points and is a system to ensure food safety. For example, a HACCP floor must be liquid-tight, anti-slip, seamless, wear-resistant and easy to clean.

By meeting these requirements, a practice room floor can contribute to a healthy and safe working environment for everyone present in the practice room.

Which floors meet the requirements for a practice room?

Not every floor is suitable for a practice room. Some floors, such as carpet, laminate or wood, do not have the right properties or do not meet the Arbo requirements for a practice room.

Fortunately, at ICM Projects we offer various high-quality floor solutions that meet the requirements for a practice room floor.

Cast floors

A cast floor is an ideal choice for practice rooms, thanks to its seamless nature and hygienic benefits. The floor provides a smooth and even surface, free of seams where dirt can accumulate.

In addition, a cast floor meets strict occupational health and safety requirements, which guarantees a safe and ergonomic working environment. The floor adapts like a seamless tailor-made suit to the needs of the practice room, thus providing an optimal basis for productivity and well-being.

Trowel floors

A trowel floor is distinguished by its exceptional durability and resistance to chemicals. These properties make it an ideal choice for practice rooms that are used intensively.

The seamless finish of the trowel floor provides a smooth surface, which is essential in a practice room where hygiene and ease of cleaning are of great importance.

Furthermore, a trowel floor offers excellent grip, which promotes safety and stability, all without sacrificing aesthetics. This makes trowel floors not only functional, but also visually attractive for any practice space.

Linoleum floors

Linoleum floors are a natural choice for practice rooms, thanks to its unique properties. The material is naturally sound-absorbing, which is essential in an environment where concentration and tranquility are important.

An additional advantage is that linoleum is extremely maintenance-friendly, making it easy to keep clean after intensive use. It also meets the requirements of a practice room due to its durability and resistance to wear.

Marmoleum floors

Marmoleum floors are the ideal choice for practice rooms, where sustainability and functional design go hand in hand. Thanks to their anti-static properties, they provide a safe and comfortable environment for students and teachers.

In addition, these Marmoleum floors effortlessly meet the applicable health and safety requirements, which ensures peace of mind and compliance with regulations. The seamless integration of marmoleum into practice spaces provides a timeless, stylish appearance that is both aesthetically pleasing and extremely functional.

Vinyl floors

A vinyl floor is the ideal choice for practice rooms for various reasons. First of all, it offers unparalleled comfort, allowing you to endure long hours of standing effortlessly.

The sound-dampening nature of vinyl is an invaluable advantage. This ensures a quiet and concentrated learning environment.

This floor is also effortless to maintain, saving valuable time that would otherwise have to be spent on cleaning. For example, take a look at our high-quality Novilon floors.
