How Does Your School Flooring Rate?

school flooring


In a world focused more on well-being than ever before, every element of life seems to have a newfound focus. Elements that may once have been taken for granted are now the limelight of our everyday lives. For example, school flooring is something every person has walked upon, had in their lives, and probably given very little thought to. At Rikett, however, providing the ultimate solution that delivers superior benefits is always at the forefront of our operations.


Today, we delve into school floors, their significance, and why you should consider if your district is truly keeping up with the times or not.


Durability is a must with school flooring.

One of the most important features of school floors is the durability of the product. Let’s face it; when we discuss anything within the school environment, it all comes down to the budget. Thus, every purchase becomes an investment that needs to deliver years of reliability. 


Sustainability is at the forefront of conversation these days.

Not only is today’s world focused on the well-being of humans but also the environment. Thus, consumers are beginning to see more products become available that have sustainability as a primary factor. With commercial flooring, products that are created and designed to eliminate sticky adhesives, lowering VOCs emitted into the environment, are some of the most desirable and sought-after products. Below is an overview of Rikett’s Quartz Tile and how our company is doing its part in this area:

  • ISO 14001 Certified Manufacturing Facility
  • 100% Virgin Vinyl – No unknown recycled content
  • 100% Recyclable

Spills and accidents happen.

When it comes to healthcare and educational settings, accidents are a significant part of daily routines. From labs to lunchrooms, having a flooring solution that limits moisture absorption provides several benefits. One of the biggest benefits is easy cleanup with little worry about compromising the subfloor. Should liquids be allowed to absorb and sit under the flooring surface, the growth of bacteria, mold, and other potentially infectious organisms all become a problem. A problem that no one wants to deal with. Rikett Quartz Tile has an extremely low absorption rate vs. other resilient flooring options which resists stains, the growth of infectious organisms and is very easy to clean.
