With ongoing school plays, music performances, ceremonies and other programs, educational and institutional auditorium floors certainly see their share of abrasive foot traffic.
Through it all, they are expected to maintain their attractive appeal and functional performance.
Many schools are turning away from traditional carpeting in auditoriums because of its high lifecycle cost of vacuuming, shampooing, stain and odor removal. Moreover, carpeted floors can contribute to poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). Formaldehyde and other toxins typical of carpeting often can off gas for some time; once installed, carpeting can capture dust, moisture, mold and mildew, that then gets released into the air. These factors can irritate asthmatic and other respiratory conditions of occupants. Epoxy floor coatings provide the perfect solution for auditoriums.

When it comes to large square footage auditorium floors, cash-strapped districts must consider every short- and long-term dollar spent. Terrazzo flooring, once the darling of educational facilities, is now considered less than optimal, due to the high cost of installation, combined with its expensive ongoing maintenance. Terrazzo demands special treatments like waxing, toxic chemical stripping and rewaxing, typically done by outside professionals or by specially trained janitorial personnel. Stained and/or polished concrete floors can be very expensive to install and can wear through to dusty, bare concrete very quickly, unless diligent resealing or buffing is performed.
In contrast, beautifully durable Florock auditorium flooring offers incredible savings over the course of a year, a decade or a bond-issue by eliminating the need to wax, buff and strip floors. With these gorgeous surfaces, there is no need to hire a special service or to train custodians how to wax. Simply sweep and mop, or run a standard scrubber — and floors look great!
Florock auditorium flooring provides outstanding ease of care, with lessoned janitorial work and expense. It gets a standing ovation!
