For an elementary or middle school administrator, many factors can go into the choice of a new flooring system.
In the past, school administrators were primarily concerned with the facility itself including the cost of installation and maintenance. While those issues are still important, today the focus has shifted to the safety of the children playing on the floors. Resilient floor systems reduce both the occurrence and the severity of injuries, protecting your children from injury and reducing the liability of the school.
K-8 facilities are often multi-purpose and used to serve as a gymnasium, a PE room, an assembly hall, and sometimes a cafeteria as well. The floors in these facilities must be versatile, but still fit into a budget.
At Sports Floors, we have helped administrators decide on a floor for every different purpose imaginable – from sports to lunchtime; from assemblies to concerts.
Some examples of K-8 floors that we have installed include padded synthetic floors such as ElastiPlus or SportGrain Plus; floating resilient wood systems such as Neo-Shok or the DuraCushion line; and anchored resilient DIN certified wood systems such as ARS DIN.
Schedule a meeting with our staff and let us spend time with you to determine what your needs are and what floor is right for you and your school.
