As summer break draws to a close, schools across the country are preparing for the return of students and staff. It's the perfect time to consider upgrades and improvements that can contribute to a more functional, appealing, and sustainable learning environment.
Installing epoxy flooring in schools can offer a multitude of benefits that can greatly impact the overall environment of your school. In our latest Everlast Epoxy® blog, we’ll explore the reasons why installing an epoxy floor in your school after summer break is a smart decision.
School floors take a LOT of abuse
Schools experience heavy foot traffic on a daily basis. Epoxy resin floors are renowned for their exceptional durability, capable of withstanding the wear and tear that school settings bring.
The high-quality epoxy resin in our flooring forms a seamless, tough surface that can withstand impacts, abrasions, and chemical spills - so it’s ideal for all areas of the campus, from the labs to the locker rooms.
A safe and healthy school environment
The safety of students and staff is of paramount importance in any educational institution. Everlast Epoxy® floors are designed to be slip-resistant, decreasing the risk of accidents, especially in areas prone to spills or dampness such as cafeterias and home economics classrooms.
The ribbed, yet non-abrasive texture of our floors is formed by marble chips. In some applications, including restrooms or school kitchens, additional grit is mixed into the glaze coat to increase the slip resistance.
Traditional flooring materials used in schools, such as carpets, can trap dust, allergens, and other particles, leading to poor indoor air quality. Epoxy floors are non-porous and do not harbor allergens or mold. This can lead to a healthier environment for everyone in the school, contributing to minimizing the effects of allergies and respiratory issues.
A sanitary flooring solution
Schools are breeding grounds for germs due to the high volume of people on campus. Our floors contain an EPA-registered antimicrobial component that acts as a line of defence, preventing the spread of microorganisms on the floor.
Antimicrobial epoxy floors ensure that even in-between cleanings, the floor remains relatively free from microbes, fungi and bacteria, promoting a more hygienic environment.
Your maintenance team will thank you!
School maintenance staff often have a lot on their plate. Epoxy floors simplify their workload as they are incredibly easy to clean and maintain.
The seamless surface leaves no room for dirt and debris to accumulate, making cleaning a breeze. Additionally, the resistance to stains means that any accidental spills can be cleaned up effortlessly, leaving your school looking inviting throughout the year.
With a simple maintenance routine, your epoxy flooring will provide many years of hassle-free use. Use our specially formulated Everlast® Floor Care products as part of your daily cleaning schedule for long-lasting, powerful micelle cleaning action.
