The flooring installed in any kind of education environment—from kindergarten to college—needs to withstand constant foot traffic and abuse from hundreds of students.
Epoxy flooring for education establishments is designed to be hard-wearing, easy to clean and maintain, and helps to provide a safe, hygienic flooring system throughout your facility.
Here are 6 reasons why choosing Everlast® Epoxy flooring for schools and universities will ensure your facility is always top of the class!
Hygienic and sanitary flooring
Epoxy flooring keeps the floors of your school or college protected from a broad spectrum of bacteria, yeast, fungi, and mildew, but it will also help to safeguard the health and well-being of students and faculty staff.
Everlast® Epoxy flooring contains an integral EPA-registered antimicrobial component that penetrates every layer of the resin to restrict the growth of microorganisms. On a busy campus, it’s impossible to ensure that your facility will be microbe-free, but by installing our epoxy resin flooring, you can be certain that your floors are as protected as possible.
Durable epoxy flooring
It’s very unlikely that students will give any thought to the flooring under their feet unlike facility managers whose job it is to source a durable and hard-wearing flooring solution that can cope with repeated foot traffic day after day.
All flooring solutions, including tiles, rubberized flooring, and carpets will look great for a period after installation, but after just a few years and thousands of students treading over them through corridors and classrooms, unsightly wear patterns can develop.
Even some resinous flooring will crack or lose its protective coating, leading to damage to the substrate and creating a haven for bacteria to inhabit.
Everlast® Epoxy is different. Our unique formula is a troweled-on system that forms a physical bond with the substrate and vulcanizes them together for a long-lasting, great-looking floor that will serve your facility for decades.
Not just for classrooms
Education establishments are not just classrooms. They also house gymnasiums, cafeterias, locker rooms, and bathrooms—all of which invite spills and resultant water damage.
Epoxy flooring provides a seamless, continuous surface of waterproofed flooring, which means that spillages can simply be wiped away with no danger to the underlying substrate. In contrast, other flooring surfaces are often permeable, which means spills can seep through the floors and cause damp and bad odors, Everlast® Epoxy’s nonporous surface makes cleaning and protecting your floors a breeze.
Everlast® Epoxy is not just for floors, though! We’ve installed our resin on the walls of shower blocks and toilet areas within schools and colleges, where the waterproof, antimicrobial surface helps to keep these areas hygienic.
Resistant to chemicals, fats, and grease
From kindergarten where youngsters still enjoy messy play to university labs where chemicals are used every day, Everlast® Epoxy has an established record of success when floors are exposed to harsh chemicals and detergents.
We’ve tested our flooring by subjecting it to full immersion for seven days in a range of chemicals, and in the end, the surface shows no sign of pitting, deterioration, or staining.
Similarly, our flooring system has an excellent track record against fats and grease, making it the ideal choice for installation in dining halls or school kitchens.
Safe for students and staff
Everlast® Epoxy has a textured finish, which creates an antislip surface that can help prevent accidents and falls.
The slip-resistant surface can also be installed in areas that are frequently wet, such as beside the school pool, to provide grip for barefoot students as they take part in water-based activities.
Staff working in the school kitchens will also benefit from a safer working environment as any spills from pans that have boiled over will not cause the floor to become slippery, unlike tiles in a kitchen floor.
Enhance learning and impress parents
Design is an important part of any flooring installation, and epoxy flooring can be used to transform a dull classroom into stimulating surroundings.
Our resin flooring provides design flexibility—and with over 50 shades to choose from, there is sure to be a hue that matches your school colors.
Our expert installers can even create bespoke flooring finishes that integrate your logo to create a truly customized educational environment that promotes team spirit or provides a stunning welcome in the school reception for students, visitors, and prospective parents.
