Education flooring for improving learning

Schools and colleges need to look great to attract students. Fantastic education flooring makes schools look modern, welcoming, and aspiring places for children to attend. E&M Services has been installing school floors for decades. Yet, we maintain our flair for offering a little extra to help your school stand out.

Young children love bright colours, shapes, and designs on classroom floors. Senior schools want to look cutting edge and ‘grown up.’ Colleges need to look modern and professional. That’s why we offer a variety of flooring products for schools, colleges, universities, and nurseries.

Our school flooring Coventry service offers various floor coverings to transform your learning places.

Carpet tiles

Carpet tiles for schools are among educational establishments’ most popular flooring options. Educational environments can benefit most from the durable properties of carpet tiles. Their durable nature helps them stand up against high foot traffic.

Carpet tiles come in pre-cut carpet squares, either slotted together or installed using an adhesive. This makes changing individual flooring tiles much easier than replacing the entire floor should damage occur.

Tiles of different sizes are available for greater design flexibility. There are several reasons why carpet tiles still hold up as an ideal school flooring, including:

  • Durable
  • Versatile
  • Cost-effective
  • Easy maintenance and installation

One of the leading carpet tile manufacturers we install is Burmatex. Burmatex carpet tiles offer a range of unique and stylish designs. This makes them ideal for creating unique learning spaces to improve learning.

Vinyl flooring

Vinyl flooring is another option available for schools. While it may be flexible and thin, it’s also slip-resistant and a hard-wearing flooring. This is due to its manufacturing, consisting of several layers contributing to quality vinyl floorings.

Vinyl flooring layers include a backing, middle solid vinyl, design, and top protective layers. Another great benefit of this flooring solution is that it mimics the designs of natural flooring, such as wood. It’s also easy to clean and maintain.

Natural flooring designs have positive psychological effects, helping to reduce stress levels by up to 60%. Natural flooring designs can also boost attention and improve mood. Various natural design choices and durability make vinyl an ideal school flooring.

Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) are also available. While LVT may look like vinyl, it provides some unique benefits that set it apart. Its soundproofing acoustic properties make it much quieter to walk on. Some brands also reduce noise levels by up to 80db.


Linoleum is another flooring for schools that is ideal for use in sports halls. Sports premises, such as gyms, use linoleum flooring for its extreme durability. Linoleum is suitable for various sporting activities thanks to its multi-purpose nature.

Linoleum’s most significant selling point is its durability. It can last up to 50 years with proper care and maintenance. There’s also a wide range of colours, patterns, and styles to customise for your school requirements.

Made from natural ingredients, linoleum is also slip-resistant. Cushioned options are also available for better sports performance and safety. This also helps to minimise the risk of injury from falls. Due to its softness, it also reduces noise levels.

Barrier mats

At E&M Services, we also offer a range of barrier mat solutions. While often overlooked, barrier mats are important in protecting your interior flooring. Barrier mats also reduce dirt brought in underfoot from outside.

A range of barrier mats are available, including aluminium, throwdown, outdoor, and custom. Opting for barrier mats for your school offers several benefits, including:

  • Improved safety.
  • Reduced cleaning and maintenance.
  • Durablility.
  • Cost-effectiveness.
  • Improve atmosphere and aesthetics.
