From kindergartens and grade schools to community colleges and universities, educational institution flooring endures ongoing foot traffic on a daily basis. In addition to common hallways and classrooms, schools often include kitchens, with the demands of daily food preparation, cafeterias where food spills are common, public bathrooms, as well as locker rooms and showers. In educational settings where hundreds or even thousands of students cycle through on any given day, facility hygiene and safety is of the utmost importance to protect the both the health and wellbeing of students, faculty, and staff alike.

Epoxy floor coatings are an immensely popular choice for educational institution flooring, largely because it is so easy to keep them clean and functional. These resinous flooring systems are applied as monolithic, level surfaces devoid of porous tile grout or the numerous seams between linoleum tiles or VCT where dirt can accumulate and bacteria can potentially flourish. In any facility where so many people, particularly children, are gathered in close quarters on a regular basis, common illnesses can spread like wildfire, so a nearly seamless surface can goes a long way in helping support cleanliness and efforts to reduce the spread of disease.
These types of resinous coatings are easy to clean, and some systems are also used for waterproofing as well. As epoxy flooring systems in general are very durable, select systems are resistant to chemical damage, therefore providing a safe and effective option if harsh cleaning agents are frequently used.
Educational institution flooring must be able to withstand constant foot traffic from individuals wearing a variety of shoe types, from sneakers to high heels and on occasion even athletic cleats. Cafeterias and multipurpose rooms often have their furniture moved from place to place to accommodate different events, which could involve metal chairs and tables scraping the floor, and equipment is often moved through an educational facility on rolling carts that can scuff up lesser surfaces. Fortunately, well-specified epoxy, urethane, and MMA flooring systems offer excellent protection against abrasion and heavy impact. This means easy, low cost maintenance, and the ability to keeping the facility up and running when school is in session.
Resinous education institution flooring is a great favorite among savvy administrators for more than their high degree of functionality, performance and durability. These floor systems are also available in a wide array of colors and designs that can add school spirit to even the plainest cafeteria or hallway. A skilled education flooring installer can even use multiple colors or large embedded decals to create the image of a mascot, school name, or other graphic that will tend to far outlast peel-n-stick or painted on surface images.
