Rhyddings School (part of the LET Education Trust) – Case Study

TVS Group were brought in to replace the flooring, breathing fresh life into this aged facility.

Based on the age of the schoolchildren, and the sporting requirements identified by the school staff, sports flooring specialists from TVS Group, quickly identified a seamless sports grade polyurethane as the best route forward.

After careful consideration and comprehensive design meetings, a two-tone colour scheme in squirrel grey and sky blue was selected, along with custom graphics to enhance the visual appearance of the floor.

The school wanted to cater for badminton, netball, basketball and volleyball to a good standard, maximising the potential for curriculum delivery, as well as outside lettings for these and other sports.

Polyurethane Versus Vinyl Sports Flooring

Polyurethane and vinyl are both great options. The biggest difference is that vinyl is a flooring system consisting of several layers, while polyurethane is just one layer applied on top of the rubber layer to offer non-slip and highly durable finish. We’ve got you covered with all the information you need about each type of flooring so you can make an informed decision.

If you want a durable finish that won’t wear down over time, then go with polyurethane! It’s perfect for high-traffic areas like gyms or fitness studios because it can withstand all sorts of abuse without showing any signs of wear. You’ll never need to worry about slipping on this surface either – no matter how much water or sweat gets spilled onto the floor! And if there ever was an accident, cleanup is easy since PU doesn’t stain easily.

Should You Choose a Polyurethane Floor?

Polyurethane floors are ideal for sports halls, gymnasiums and other high-traffic areas because the polyurethane top layer is extremely wear resistant. This multi-use surface is suitable for indoor hockey, 5-a-side football, basketball, badminton and many other sports. It always performs perfectly and never wears down. Polyurethane has become the number 1 alternative to hardwood for sports floors because it’s easier to maintain and lasts longer. It’s also available in a wide range of colours and you can specify a variety of contrasting zones and markings.

Polyurethane floors are also superior to vinyl floors. They are superior because the polyurethane coating is significantly more durable than vinyl. It lasts longer and it’s easier to replace. Polyurethane is also much more resistant to certain chemicals. Heat, chemicals and stains can affect the top wear layer of vinyl but not polyurethane.

The Benefits Of Polyurethane Floors

The biggest benefit of polyurethane floors is they last a very long time. You are estimated to get at least 10 years from your polyurethane floor. This is because polyurethane has exceptional wear, abrasion and impact resistance properties.

The second biggest benefit is cost and there are three aspects to this: the first aspect is polyurethane floors are affordable compared to hardwood; the second is they last at least as long; and the third is they are cheaper to maintain.

Speaking of maintenance, polyurethane floors require no maintenance whatsoever. You only need to clean them. You can clean them with a regular mop and bucket, a steam cleaner, or an electric spin mop. The surface will dry streak-free, and there’s no need to worry about water penetration because the surface is impenetrable. The edges where your polyurethane floor meets the wall will also be sealed.

Best Applications For Polyurethane Floors

Polyurethane floors are ideal for sports halls, gymnasiums and sports centres. The flooring offers outstanding performance for a wide range of sports and it can replace older flooring systems like hardwood and vinyl.
