Just like floors in police holding cells or lockups, prison cell flooring in a maximum-security prison or a minimum-security correctional facility, must meet safety and health standards for the incarcerated population, as well as prison staff and visitors. At Florock, we offer the flooring options needed for security and sanitation.

VCT, sheet goods and carpet—which all depend on water-based adhesives—can be easily “picked at,” lifted, and ultimately shaped into a weapon, posing a serious threat to all. Florock floors bond completely to the concrete substrate, becoming part of the physical structure of the space, without adhesives. The puncture-resistant surface of Florock prison cell flooring has no grout lines or tile edges, reducing the risk of vandalism or damage from manual manipulation by inmates—and provide the outstanding security required.
It’s no secret that our jails are overcrowded, with some facilities imposing “double-celling” and “triple-celling” (two to three inmates per cell) conditions. Such tight quarters means cold germs and infectious viruses can spread fast—making facility hygiene more important than ever. Florock prison cell floors are available with antimicrobial protection and bond directly to the concrete slab, reducing the chance for pockets of dangerous mold to develop between the flooring and substrate.
To adhere to sanitation conditions, our prison cell and holding room flooring offers:
Prison cell flooring must be equipped with features such as slip resistance from spilled liquids or moisture. At Florock, we offer slip-resistant floor coatings, customizable to suit a particular prison’s needs. These highly effective coatings do not require specialized cleaning, allowing for even untrained staff to clean these floors. One of Florock’s experienced and approved installers can easily install one or more of our many flooring options.
Fire safety is also an important issue that prison facility owners cannot underestimate. Florock flooring rates as 7.1 Fire Class A when tested for Flame Spread in accordance with ASTM E84. Florock’s self-extinguishing floors are well-suited for use in prisons.
Like other buildings, prison facilities need flooring installation to be quick to prevent any downtime for the building. At Florock, we offer flooring with:
Florock offers a broad spectrum of cool, soothing colors in a variety of solids and blends that psychology specialists say encourages calm behavior. Florock’s unlimited custom options help correctional designers create modern spaces that are safe, secure and hygienic.
