Spring is just weeks away, and with the April showers and May flowers will come spring sports, baseball, and soccer cleats, and tracked in mud. Are your locker room floors ready?
- Spiked shoes, dirt, and mud tracked in from outdoor playing fields
- Sports or work equipment dragged and tossed on floors
- Swimming pool chlorine and chemicals where pools are present
- Soaps, detergents, harsh cleaners and sanitizers
- High humidity, heat, and steam from showers
- Bare sensitive feet on wet slippery floors
Locker room flooring systems also need to be chemical resistant to personal products like cologne, hair spray, deodorants, aftershave, topical medications, and lotions all have the potential to stain and damage flooring materials.
Finally, warm and humid locker rooms tend to act as breeding grounds for bacteria and fungi. To avoid the spread of maladies such as athlete’s foot, ringworm, pink eye, and MRSA, locker room flooring needs to be easy to clean and maintain.
Xtreme Engineered Floor Systems has Locker Room Flooring Solutions.
When you look at the list above, you have to wonder if there’s one flooring system that could handle all those conditions. The answer is yes – V-8 Hybrid XT floor coatings from Xtreme Engineered Floor Systems were created to withstand the most grueling conditions. Yes, even locker rooms.
The sticky surface was developed to withstand traffic in industrial facilities, so cleats and sporting equipment will not gouge, scratch, or damage the locker room flooring. The seam-free installation has no grout lines or crevices where disgusting fungi and gym germs can hide. And it is chemical resistant, so personal grooming products, pool chemicals, and even harsh cleansers and sanitizers are not a problem.
No Harsh Cleansers Required
If you’re concerned about the sensitive bare feet, we’ve even got a solution for that. The flooring surface is hard (to resist scratching and cracking) but flexible (so it’s easy to stand on). And when you use eco-friendly Xtreme Clean cleaning solution rather than harsh chemical cleansers, those sensitive feet will thank you. Spring is coming.
