When building a school from the ground up, one of the decisions you’ll need to make is how many areas you’ll have that transition from one type of flooring to another. Will there be a lot of transitions, or will the school mostly have one type of flooring throughout? Once that decision has been made, it’s time to select your transition strips.
WHY DO YOU NEED TRANSITION STRIPS?
THE TOP REASONS YOU NEED TRANSITION STRIPS IN SCHOOLS
Transition strips are especially important in schools for several reasons.
- Flooring Protection: First, they protect the floor edges from the constant heavy foot traffic of students and teachers.
- Smooth Flooring Transition: Second, they create a smooth surface for wheelchairs and rolling carts carrying televisions or other classroom equipment to travel over.
- Safety: Lastly, the safety of students is one of a school’s top responsibilities, and the transition strips help eliminate trip hazards.
