Designing for Education Environments
Design in education plays a big role in student and staff well being. Flooring can facilitate both collaborative or focused spaces, and can create improved performance and productivity. From pre-school, K-12 and tertiary alike, our flooring solutions cover all areas of education design, including classrooms, corridors, libraries, common rooms, computer labs, multipurpose spaces and amenities.
Mix and match different flooring types and colours to create designated zones, direct flow of foot traffic, or simply incorporate school branding with our custom capabilities. Presenting practical features like acoustic performance, comfort, low VOCs and safety underfoot, our education flooring solutions include Declare™ Red List Free, Australian made products for a healthier, locally sourced option.

Acoustic performance for learning spaces
Noise, particularly in open plan spaces, has a big impact on learning and the ability to take in information. It can result in poor hearing conditions and the flow on effect, whether in a workplace or education setting, can include critical information being missed. Difficulty communicating often means voices are raised, resulting in stressful situations.
