There are a lot of different rooms and areas within a school. Each room may serve a different need for students or staff, so rooms are often designed differently. One major decision schools have to make is choosing which flooring is going to go in each room. One common type of flooring used in schools is foam flooring, so this article is going to look at three different areas within a school foam flooring can be useful in.
In the Classroom
Classroom designs may vary depending on the age of students that will be in the classroom. In classrooms for younger students, foam floor mats or foam carpet tiles can be extremely beneficial. Younger students tend to sit or play on the floor frequently, and because of this, they need a soft, cushioned floor in the classroom. Foam flooring offers the softness needed and is easy to install and move around if needed. Flooring in classrooms for younger students should be easy to clean as well, and foam flooring certainly is.
In the Gym
Gyms, dance studios, and other recreational areas need flooring that is soft — because kids playing on the floor in gyms, foam flooring can be a great option. It’s soft enough so that if kids fall, they will have a cushioned surface to land on. This is especially important for activities like gymnastics or other types of tumbling. Foam carpet tiles can be assembled for certain activities and then easily taken down and put away if it is not needed.
In the Library
A school library is a place where students can go to work on homework, research, and even read leisurely. Because libraries are a place for concentration, it needs to be quiet. Fortunately, foam flooring is quiet when being walked on, unlike floorings like wood or laminate. Furthermore, foam floor tiles are comfortable enough for students to sit on if they are looking to read on the floor. Overall, foam flooring is perfect for any library or study area.
Flooring is as important as desks and other elements in schools. With floor covering sales growing by around 4.8% in 2017 alone, more and more schools and other facilities are exploring floor tile options. Foam flooring can be beneficial in numerous areas within a school, for both students and staff.
