As experts in the field of flooring solutions, we at ICM Projects understand better than anyone how crucial a good school floor is for a safe and stimulating learning environment. For example, it is essential that an educational floor meets the correct hygiene and safety requirements.

But how do you select a suitable school floor, what options are available and what should you pay attention to when making a choice? We tell you everything you need to know about school floors and how to find the right floor for your school.

Why are good school floors important?

A good school floor is essential for the safety and well-being of students and employees. In addition, a durable and wear-resistant floor contributes to the long lifespan of the school floor, which can save costs in the long term.

However, the most important reason remains to create a safe learning environment for students and teachers. Just like in any other workplace, user safety is the number one priority, in addition to productivity and efficiency.

What requirements must a school floor meet?

A school floor must meet strict requirements. For example, floors in a school must be durable, sound-absorbing, low-maintenance, hygienic and safe. The most important requirements that a school floor must meet are:

  • Safety: a school floor must be slip and fall resistant, fire resistant, not emit harmful substances, not cause noise pollution and not induce allergic reactions.
  • Sustainability: school floors must last a long time, require little maintenance, be recyclable, energy-saving and have low CO2 emissions.
  • Hygiene: for schools it is important that the floors are easy to clean, do not retain dust, dirt or bacteria, are resistant to stains, scratches and wear and do not spread unpleasant odors.
  • Appearance: A school floor should match the style, theme and atmosphere of the school, be colourful, vibrant and attractive, stimulate the creativity, enthusiasm and concentration of the students and make a positive impression on visitors.

Which floors are suitable as floors for schools?

Not all types of floors are suitable as floors for schools. For example, some floors may be too slippery, too hard, too fragile or too boring for schools. That is why it is important to look carefully at the properties, advantages and disadvantages of each type of floor before making a choice.

Vinyl floors

Vinyl floors are an excellent choice for schools because of their durability and ease of maintenance. In addition, they offer sound-dampening properties, which benefits the learning environment and contributes to a productive atmosphere.

PVC floors

PVC floors are extremely suitable for schools because of their wear resistance and hygienic properties. They come in different designs, so they fit seamlessly with the image of the school, while providing a robust basis for daily activities.

Polyurethane cast floors

Polyurethane cast floors offer a seamless, sleek finish and are extremely low-maintenance. They can withstand heavy loads and have a sound-dampening effect, which is particularly valuable in the lively environment of a school.

Linoleum floors

Linoleum floors are not only natural and durable, but also environmentally friendly. They contribute to a comfortable, warm atmosphere and are ideal for schools that value a green environment and that strive for a healthy and inspiring space for their students.

Marmoleum floors

Marmoleum floors, a specific type of linoleum floor, are known for their durability and allergy-friendly properties. They are available in a wide spectrum of colors and patterns, encouraging creativity in school interiors.

Trowel floors

Trowel floors are particularly robust and wear-resistant. They are ideal for areas with heavy loads, such as gymnasiums, where durability and safety are essential. Thanks to their easy cleaning and maintenance, they contribute to an optimal learning environment.

How do you select the right school floor?

Selecting the right school floor starts with a thorough analysis of the needs of the educational institution. Consider factors such as type of use, style of room, budget and desired properties of the floor. Our expert team is ready to advise you in making the right decision.
