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.

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

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.

Pulastic Sports Flooring Cleaning Advice

Pulastic Sports Flooring Cleaning Advice

The rapid spread of the COVID-19 around the world has brought hygiene practices into sharp focus.

On a personal level, we are all being much more diligent about regularly washing and sanitizing our hands.

Even before the coronavirus outbreak, floor cleaning was critical for infection control. Although floors are not as high- touch as many other surfaces (door handles, light switches, etc.) contaminants in general can transfer very easily.

The fastest, most effective, and safest way to clean Pulastic floors is with a scrubber dryer. These instructions briefly review the preferred method. Please contact us directly if you have any questions regarding the information given.

• The chance of getting infected through a floor is relatively small. The advice is to avoid ground based sports exercises as much as possible or to use mats which are easy to clean after use.
• Follow the Pulastic cleaning advice and increase the frequency of cleaning to at least once a day and preferably more often (depending on use) where possible.
• There is a preference for machine cleaning (scrubber dryer) and to increase the dosage level of the Pulastic Eco Clean product to 1:100, instead of 1:200.
• Preferably no wet mopping. If a scrubber dryer is not available, use the increased dosage of Pulastic Eco Clean and apply with a mop, after letting the product sit (do not let it dry up), soak it up with a water vacuum cleaner.
• Clean used buckets, brushes, pads and cloths after use.
• Do not use any cleaning products or methods other than recommended by Pulastic, please check the standard cleaning advice for more information.

Multi-use leisure sport sports floor after deep clean

Did you know we offer health checks for existing sports floors? Last weekend we went back to ACS International School, Hillingdon (32 years later) to give its Pulastic sports flooring an industrial mechanical deep clean.

To stop it from being slippy and looking worn, we stripped the surface of dirt, grease and old cleaning products.

Check out the pictures below… It looks brand new! Go to our maintenance page here for further information.
