School halls are places where exams, parents evenings, extracurricular events and indoor PE classes take place. The flooring in these halls has to cope with a lot of abuse, from dragged chair legs to indoor hockey and basketball.  

Timber is another option. Timber floors offer a classical appearance. They are often the preferred choice in sports halls where basketball is the main sport. Timber floors are made from hardwood or modified and engineered timber.

If you are unsure what type of sports hall flooring is best for you ask our experts. We’re here to help you choose the right floor for your sports hall.

Hardwood School Hall Flooring

School halls traditionally have a hardwood floor with a clear lacquer. Hardwood floors provide a classical and timeless appearance and are extremely hard-wearing, with a typical lifespan of 20 or 30 years with correct maintenance.

We are a leading supplier of hardwood school hall flooring. We supply hardwood flooring for small and large school halls. We are a UK-based partner for Robbins Timber Floors which are used in America’s basketball league, the NBA.

Vinyl and PU School Hall Flooring

We are also a leading supplier of vinyl and polyurethane flooring for school halls. These floors are cheaper and last just as long as hardwood. They lack a classical appearance, but they offer a wider range of performance elasticities.

Vinyl floors can be designed with different elasticities using different types of underlay. Sports halls tend to require a rigid floor with good point elasticity. We can recommend the right school hall flooring when we chat.

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.

A new two-tone polyurethane sports flooring system

A two-tone polyurethane sports flooring system caters for the performance and aesthetic requirements of the school.

School Hall Flooring – Polyurethane or Timber?

You want your school sports hall to be as durable and long-lasting as possible, so it’s important that you make the right choice when choosing your surface. There are two main options available – timber or polyurethane. Both have their advantages, but with polyurethane being more modern and available in a wider range of densities, it is often the better option.
We offer both timber and polyurethane surfaces at competitive prices so you can get exactly what you need. Contact us today to find out more about our products!
