What Is The Best Sports Flooring For Schools, Colleges And Universities?

Sports Surfaces UK have been installing sports floors in schools, colleges and universities for over 35 years (that’s over 500 floors!) and we have loved every minute.

Often, our clients come to us with the same question; what is the best sports flooring for my school? We always recommend booking a consultation and site visit with us to determine what type of sports floor surface you need, what the sports floor will be used for and the size of the area – but here’s a quick guide to our recommendations:

Floors For Sports Halls

Does your sports floor need to be multifunctional for playing indoor sports such as indoor basketball, netball, football, tennis, badminton, squash and hockey one day and used as an exams’ floor the next? A Multi-use Floor is the perfect choice for your sports hall.

Your floor may need to accommodate anyone from playing children to athletes, so adaptability is a must, and we recommend a SSUK Pulastic Seamless Polyurethane as it offers world-class safety and slip resistant qualities, as well as making your floor perform better and look new.

Or why not consider a SSUK Facelift’ and enjoy a new multi-use sports floor for half the price and less landfill – so better for the environment. We have extensive experience working with UK schools and education facilities revitalising gym floors with our Facelift service.

We also offer a choice of other premium multiuse sports surface types – including Sheet Sport Vinyl and Uni-Turf  Embossed PVC Vinyl which are also vibrant, low maintenance and shock absorbent.

Floors For Gyms

If your school or education facility needs to accommodate a gym for exercising, fitness classes, weights or boxing, safety will be a priority for your users. We offer different gym floor surface options to suit every budget, with Primaflex being our most recommended because of its anti-slip and hard-wearing properties which provides a solid platform, cushioning and resilience, as well as sound and shock absorption properties.

We can also provide SSUK Pulastic Fitness Flooring which is vibrant, safe, durable and easy to maintain.

Floors For Indoor Cricket

For dedicated indoor cricket facilities, we recommend Uni-Turf Embossed PVC Vinyl because of its world-renowned reputation as a high-quality flooring that’s used at many major UK indoor cricket academies and Schools, including Kent, Headingley and The Oval. As well as Uni-Turf, we also offer Pulastic and Gerflor Sport Vinyl which have excellent cushioning, support and resilience for indoor cricket, plus they are easy to care for.

We can supply and install your cricket flooring to your needs and budget. We’ve worked with major indoor cricket schools to install sports floors that are not only technically superior but have also seen world record-breaking performances.

Our manufacturer-trained teams install a wide variety of internationally recognised and durable multi-use, fitness and cricket indoor sports hall floors at schools and education facilities across the UK and worldwide. Get in touch and we can provide you with the best solutions for your company.

Pulastic Polyurethane Indoor Sports Floor Facelift

Description

SSUK originally installed a capri blue Pulastic multiuse polyurethane sports floor at Holbrook Primary School, Coventry in 2007!

14 years later, the SSUK team were back onsite again successfully transformed the old sports surface into a cool contemporary dusty grey Pulastic sports floor.

First the team repaired, sanded and clean the existing floor before applying a Pulastic polyurethane coating followed by a matt finish paint and new line markings.
Our SSUK Facelift is a great way for the school to enjoy a new sports floor for aprox half the price of a new installation. Plus by using the existing floor we create much less landfill.

Sports Halls across the UK are playing a vital part in the fight against Covid.

By News

Sports Halls across the UK are playing a vital part in the fight against Covid.

Pulastic facelift indoor polyurethane sports flooring

Day to day sport may not be taking place, but in many cases other life-saving activities are, for example mass Covid testing, mass Covid vaccination, food distribution hubs and some sports facilities have even been used by charities to organise presents for children at Christmas.

At Sports Surfaces UK we have been working with a number of sports facilities who have accessed funding to enable them to return to play in a Covid safe way.

Be it a new floor, fresh court markings, new equipment, a refurbishment of the existing floor to bring it back to standard – there are a wealth of refurbishment options we can advise you on and deliver.

Please speak to the team today to discuss your facility.

Case Study 

Back in November 2020, Garston Lifestyles Fitness Centre was one of the first ground-breaking community Covid testing centres to be rolled out across the city of Liverpool. Helping everyone who lives and works in Liverpool to go and get tested.

Following on from the testing centre, Sports Surfaces UK were asked to supply and install a SSUK Pulastic multiuse floor, ensuring the fitness centre remained a safe space for the whole community to enjoy.

Back in November 2020, Garston Lifestyles Fitness Centre was one of the first ground-breaking community testing centres to be rolled out across the city of Liverpool. Helping everyone who lived and works in Liverpool to go and get tested.

Following on from the testing centre, we were asked to supply and install a SSUK Pulastic multiuse floor, ensuring the fitness centre remained a safe space for the whole community to enjoy.

Our first job was to uplift the old floor down to the concrete base, followed by a base system and polyurethane top layer and court markings.

The leisure centre are thrilled with their new floor and cannot wait for the centre to reopen when it is safe to do so.

At Sports Surfaces Uk we appreciate day to day sport may not be taking place, but in many cases other life-saving activities are for example mass covid testing, mass covid vaccination, food distribution hubs and some have even been used for charities to organise presents for children’s at Christmas.

And did you know funding can sometimes be made available to provide much needed improvements to these facilities?

Be it a new floor, fresh court markings, new equipment, a refurbishment of the existing floor to bring it back to standard – there are a wealth of refurbishment options we can advise you on and deliver.
