Carpet tiles are a great choice for many areas within a school. They have excellent acoustic properties, absorbing sound and removing echo, helping to create a quiet environment within the classroom. Another key feature is that they are extremely durable, making them perfect for areas with heavy footfall such as classrooms and reception areas. The benefit of using tiles over traditional carpet is that a damaged area can be replaced easily without having to replace the entire carpet area, making them more cost effective. Their anti-static properties also makes them the perfect choice for computer rooms.
Vinyl flooring is a more traditional option for schools, is low cost, quick to install and is extremely durable. They can be purchased in wood and natural stone effect, which helps to create a warm, comfortable feel to the environment. Maintenance is very easy, as it is resistant to almost all stains and easy to clean. Vinyl flooring is perfect for all sorts of school environments including classrooms, cafeterias, corridors and science labs. There is also vinyl flooring made specifically for sports halls and gymnasiums, with additional non-slip and non-scratch qualities.
Linoleum flooring is another popular choice for schools and is similar to vinyl in that it is durable and easy to clean. Linoleum comes in a greater variety of colours, which makes it a good choice to help create a bright, colourful classroom. It is also made from natural materials, so is considered to be a more environmentally friendly option to vinyl. It is non-allergenic, has anti-bacterial qualities and has a much longer life-span than vinyl. Whilst its life-span is naturally longer, it is more prone to damage, so you must ensure you use the correct cleaning agents.
Linoleum has seen a recent resurgence due to its environmentally friendly, biodegradable properties. However, it is more difficult to install and is a more expensive option than vinyl.
