Upgrade Your School Floors Over the Summer Break

school floors

School floors see a lot of traffic throughout the course of the year. Students and staff come in and out, bringing with them dirt and grime from the outside. Desks and chairs get dragged across rooms and scrape up the floors. School budgets are often tight, but the floors are not the place to cut corners to save some money. Low-quality flooring will not last very long, and you will have to replace the floors sooner rather than later. So in the long run, it will actually cost more. For school floors that will last, Rikett Quartz Tile is the ideal flooring material.

Here are a few reasons why quartz tile is the best choice for your new school floors.


Durable and Easy to Clean

When it comes to school flooring, these are two of the most important factors to consider. Rikett Quartz Tile (RQT) is not only made from natural quartz, which scores a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale, but it also has the added protection of Rikettseal™. This commercial-grade UV cured polyurethane coating makes RQT extra durable and easy to clean without needing to wax the floors. The large 24” x 24” tiles are also resistant to breakage and shrinkage, which reduces the number of gaps for bacteria to hide.


Naturally-Occurring Material

In recent years, we have become more aware of the materials and substances that we are exposed to. Harsh chemicals from synthetic materials—and those required to clean them—can have long-term effects on both human health and the environment. Quartz is a naturally occurring mineral and happens to be the most common mineral on earth. It is also made up of two of the most abundant chemical elements, oxygen and silicon.


Sustainably Manufactured

Education covers a lot more than just the basics these days, and we also want to teach our students to be environmentally responsible. With RQT, that starts from the ground up. We are committed to sustainability at Rikett, and our tiles are 100% recyclable and made through a no-waste manufacturing process and in an ISO 14001 certified manufacturing facility.

RQT Is the Best Choice for New School Floors

If your school needs new floors, take advantage of the summer break to install RQT. The large format tiles make design easy, especially with all the color options available. School floors no longer have to look unappealing and institutional. Install Rikett tiles for premium visual design and decreased maintenance costs.
