Benefits of Rubber Flooring for Schools
Updated: Feb 22
Designers and architects designing for educational spaces are increasingly gravitating toward rubber flooring options. School flooring manufactured out of rubber materials offers a number of incredible benefits, from aesthetic appeal to practical utility, and greatly enhances the learning experiences of students.
Schools are multipurpose spaces, holding not only classrooms, but gymnasiums, cafeterias, offices, and labs. Furthermore, schools are often used before classes begin and after they end to hold community programs. Knoveo Rubber Flooring meets the multiple needs of a school building.
Rubber floors are durable
Desks are shifted, chairs are pushed in and out, and feet scuffle across the floors in a typical school. The flooring inside the school must withstand students’ constant hustle and bustle. Rubber floors, being incredibly durable, are manufactured to resist impact even under heavy foot traffic.
Rubber floors are highly resilient and therefore endure for years. The elasticity of rubber is further enhanced by a polyurethane binding agent. Additionally, rubber floors are resistant to chemicals, such as those found in a school laboratory. Unlike some flooring materials, rubber does not decay or rot.
When installed in a school gym withstand the impact from equipment as well as students during athletic games and practice. Rubber floors do not shrink, crack, or expand. The toughness of rubber flooring ensures that it retains its functionality and appearance over a long period of time.
Rubber floors are safe
Knoveo Rubber Flooring is the safest choice for schools. Featuring anti-slip properties, students and young athletes can walk or run on the rubber floors without fear of slipping and sustaining injuries. Being naturally slip resistant, rubber floors are ideal for schools that receive lots of foot traffic
Since rubber floors do not require coatings or an application of chemicals, the fumes that are typically emitted from these products are nonexistent. As a result of the absence of vapors, students, teachers, and maintenance staff breathe a healthier quality of air.
Rubber floors are quiet
When focusing on lessons in school, a quiet environment promotes learning. Knoveo Rubber Floors are silent underfoot. Unlike harder types of flooring materials, rubber floors installed in the school hallways absorb sound and prevent noisy distractions. Furthermore, acoustics are enhanced by rubber floors.
When rubber floors are installed in the school’s reading nooks, story rooms, amphitheaters or spaces designated for collaboration between students and teachers, unwanted noise is substantially decreased. Minimized auditory distractions allow students to better focus on the learning tasks at hand.
Rubber Floors Keep School Hallways Safe and Quiet
Most of the foot traffic within a school happens in the hallways. Rubber flooring in the hallways will make these areas safer and quieter to avoid disturbing surrounding classrooms.
Hallways with Knoveo Rubber Flooring are quieter because they absorb sound, unlike hard surface flooring. The slip resistance of rubber flooring and its resistance to wear and tear also create a safer environment and help prevent falls and injuries, even when wet.
