Geometric floor design for Solihull School sixth formers
A combination of high performance flooring from Polyflor’s luxury vinyl tile and sheet vinyl flooring ranges was recently used to create a dynamic, geometric flooring design at Solihull School’s brand new Sixth Form centre.
Installed by Tamworth based Gladston Contract Flooring Specialists, Pearlazzo PUR homogeneous sheet flooring was used to produce a hexagonal patterned floor design in the centre’s breakout and dining area whilst Expona Control PUR luxury vinyl tiles created a pathway through the common room area and into the adjoining corridors and staircases. The £4.5m new build project at the independent school in the West Midlands was managed by main contractor Speller Metcalfe and designed by Birmingham based architects Malcolm Payne Design Group.
Sean Morgan, Senior Deputy Headmaster at Solihull School commented, “For our state of the art Sixth Form facilities we wanted to create a bright, modern space that will motivate our students. Polyflor flooring fitted our needs perfectly, being both practical and visually appealing.”
Expona Control PUR luxury vinyl tiles in Light Elm were installed in circulation areas to offer sustainable wet slip resistance where slippages are more likely to occur.
Both Pearlazzo and Expona Control ranges are popular choices for education environments due to their UV cured and cross-linked polyurethane PUR coating which allows for a simple polish-free maintenance regime and a reduced need for energy, power, water and chemical consumption.
