Thoughtful cafeteria design, cafeteria flooring in particular, is more important than ever before. Today’s school cafeterias have expanded beyond their traditional role to become highly functional multi-use spaces. In many schools, cafeterias now serve breakfast, as well as lunch, in several shifts/rotations. In addition, modern “cafetoriums” function as auditoriums, study hall spaces and after-school gathering places for clubs and extra-curricular activities. This multi-function approach means constant use, even beyond the highly trafficked meal rotations, requiring industrial epoxy coatings.

High-use cafeteria and cafetorium floors need to be as durable, slip-resistant and impact/abrasion resistant as ever, but they must also take serious issues of health into consideration. School cafeterias and kitchens with numerous high-touch surfaces, and tightly scheduled meal rotations can mean there’s less time to clean properly between meal services.
As a result, the space is highly susceptible to spreading colds, flu and other infectious diseases.
Along with schools’ Infection Control Plans (ICP) and targeted disinfecting protocols, thoughtfully-selected school cafeteria epoxy flooring can make a difference to Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and occupants’ overall health. Facilities that select something other than seamless epoxy coatings can experience a variety of problems, as described below:

School cafeteria designers are charged with creating functional, attractive spaces that support the learning environment.
