2 Education is the future: modern learning environments pave the way Your work lays the foundation for a young person s future. This necessitates modern educational concepts and learning environments. Our environmentally-friendly, high-quality floor coverings are important elements here. Armstrong employee genaral principle for educational establishments Armstrong - Powerful flooring for educational establishments Up to 90% of our time each day is spent indoors. It is, therefore, important that the materials surrounding us are high quality. For more than 130 years, we have produced natural linoleum flooring, putting all our know-how into technical development and innovative design. In addition to linoleum, we also offer vinyl, design floor tiles and fibrebonded textile flooring, all of which comply with both national and international standards and regulations. As a member of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), we are aware of the responsibility to create healthy living, learning and work spaces. Parents, teachers and children can all have a good feeling about DLW floor coverings. We feel a responsibility towards both people and nature, and we pay particular attention to the sustainability of our products: from the raw materials used, to cleaning and maintenance and, even, recycling.

3 04 05 Creative functionality: Flooring in education Creative functionality: Flooring in education DLW linoleum from Armstrong is produced largely from renewable resources. From my own environmental performance assessment, linoleum can be unreservedly recommended from a sustainability point of view. Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Manfred Hegger, Darmstadt University of Technology, Faculty of Architecture Floors in educational establishments have to withstand a great deal: They are played on, learned on and run around on - chairs and tables are pushed around, sports are played and packed lunches are eaten. Therefore, they must be durable and functional, easily and thoroughly cleaned. And, yet, there is virtually no limit on the creativity of patterns and colours you can have in a room. DLW Linoleum is the environmentally-friendly and durable classic flooring for education. It is made of 98% natural raw materials, such as linseed oil, corkment, wood flour, natural resins and jute, bears numerous eco-labels, e. g. the Blue Angel and meets the requirements of the European Toy Safety Standard EN 71. Linoleum is often used in schools and daycare centres because of its simplicity and the different designs available in a wide range of colours. Linoleum is not only used in play rooms and classrooms; it is also available as an acoustic lining for hallways, or as a special sports floor for gymnastics, sports and multipurpose halls. For the staff room, administration rooms and library, we recommend the durable DLW Fibrebonded. It can withstand the highest loads e. g. chair casters or heavy shelves, and it attracts dirt far less than conventional textile flooring. This makes it particularly easy to clean. It also contributes significantly to improving room acoustics. Brilliant and muted colors, eye-catching and subtle patterns characterise our DLW Vinyl collections. Here you will find special coverings, e. g. for sanitary facilities or technical classrooms in which non-slip or chemical-resistant floor coverings are required. With the special coverings in our Mix & Match kit, you can create flooring concepts with the same colour and design for functional areas with specific, technical requirements. Scala design floor tiles bring fine wood and stone optics to your floors. There are also unobstructive, flat structures and striking, solid colours. They are significantly less sensitive, more hygienic and easier to clean than the real materials. And, at the same time, they ensure a welcoming environment. Get an idea of the many possibilities: will give you ideas and inspiration for your flooring concepts.

4 06 07 Colourful Kids World: Flooring for the little ones Colourful Kids World: Flooring for the little ones On the first day of kindergarten, a new life begins. Parents, therefore, approach the choice of a suitable educational establishment with great care and the spatial learning environment plays just as important a role as the educational concepts. A child-friendly, cheerful decor is important for children s development. Overall, flooring plays an important role in creating an atmosphere in which children can run and play to their hearts content including, at times, barefoot. Very important for parents: hygienic conditions. The managers of the facilities, on the other hand, are on a tight budget and want to use long-lasting and durable flooring. High scratchresistance, for example, is particularly important because, after playing in the garden, sand regularly gets into the building. The crucial factor is a suitable surface finish, such as the LPX Finish by Armstrong. More about this on page 32. for the children. The Vanløse primary school in Copenhagen has some great examples of how to use inlays (p 12). Multi-purpose rooms and administrative offices Multi-purpose rooms in kindergartens see a lot of action: from gym class to drama performances. Flooring must have properties such as elasticity and warmth underfoot in these areas, but it must also look good for seating and, of course, it must be easy to clean after events. Here, the PUR Eco System surface treatment or LPX Finish play a crucial role. In renovations, sound insulation often has an important impact because deficiencies in the design can often be mitigated by using appropriate DLW Linoleum and DLW Vinyl flooring with acoustic properties. For administrative areas and offices, the DLW Fibrebonded is recommended. It minimises impact sound and is robust and easy to clean: dirt can be removed very simply with a vacuum cleaner. Linoleum: The all-rounder for kindergartens Linoleum has proven its worth in kindergartens and daycare centres. Its natural materials mean it is safe to be used, has a natural antibacterial effect and even meets the strict toy safety standard it is 100% free of pollutants even when in contact with the child's mouth. With the abundance of product colours and inlays on offer, beautiful worlds can be created For detailed recommendations for kindergartens, see page 36.

5 08 09 Smal Carrots, Gdansk, PL Carrots learn to live life This kindergarten differentiates itself with its simplicity, functionality and durability. Marek Czaja, owner GOLF Marek Czaja, The community of Carrots in Gdansk, Poland, is small and delicate. A maximum of 35 children discover the world together here and become prepared for life a healthy life. For this kindergarten has its own kitchen and a cook who keeps a keen eye on the diet of the young charges. What was the most important thing in this project? The challenge was to create a friendly environment for children, so that they could also benefit from it. The hardest part of creating a perfect place was: creating a place where nothing is lacking and everything is there. When someone sees the kindergarten, they should be speechless. Our vision for this project was... What is your favourite place in the building? That would be the changing rooms and the hallways where we laid the floors. I like to look back at the work that my team did. Why did you choose Armstrong DLW flooring? Because it is the best linoleum available on the market. Simplicity, functionality and durability. What is your idea of a child-friendly nursery? It is a place where the children's imagination is stimulated. A place where children are inspired through everyday challenges and can develop their personality.

6 10 11 Building for pupils: Primary and secondary schools Building for pupils: Primary and secondary schools With the introduction of all-day schools and additional freetime activities, schools are becoming an important habitat for children and adolescents. In addition, green schools are becoming popular among architects and builders these are energy efficient and uses sustainable building materials. The ongoing maintenance is the biggest cost Floor coverings, particularly in educational institutions, have to withstand very high loads on a daily basis: e. g. dirt in entrances and hundreds of pairs of shoes in corridors, stairwells and classrooms. Nevertheless, the floors must last and look attractive for as long as possible and, given the high cost pressure, they should be able to be thoroughly cleaned both quickly and inexpensively over many years. We, therefore, recommend resilient flooring, such as DLW Linoleum or DLW Vinyl flooring, whose surface finishes make them resistant to all daily challenges. More information on Cleaning & Care as well as our surface finishes can be found on pages 32 and 34. Linoleum: Classics for schools Classrooms, cafeterias, laboratories each school room has its own flooring requirements: For classrooms and public areas, DLW Linoleum with an LPX Finish has proven to be extremely sturdy and durable flooring. Linoleum is made almost exclusively from natural raw materials. It is antibacterial and easy to clean. A common problem in schools is damage caused by wobbling chairs. We recommend suitable chair glides and recommend this particular DLW Linoleum with LPX Finish coating, which can be kept like new with regular basic cleaning and maintenance. Through and through a natural and sustainable approach. More information is available on page 32.

7 12 13 Vanløse primary school in Copenhagen, DK Knowledge rests on the floor A primary school should be an environment that promotes curiosity, activity and joy. Anders Bay Holm, director & architect MAA Kant Arkitekter A/S, Denmark, At Vanløse primary school in the Danish capital of Copenhagen, the children have their educational content right before their eyes in a very playful way: in the form of historical dates, mathematical formulas and even entire proverbs. The large inlays were cut using a high pressure water jet specifically customised for DLW Linoleum and then fitted. The interplay of bright and neutral colours supports the modern interior design concept. Following the renovation, which Kant Architects carried out jointly with Dorthe Mandrup Architects, the primary school offers a joyful and inspiring learning environment. What challenges did this project present to you? The Vanløse Elementary School had many hallways, relatively small class rooms and no rooms for group work or independent work, as is typical in old schools. We have broken up these narrow structures with relatively few interruptions and opened up both the classrooms and the hallways. Each year group has its own consistentlydesigned and distinctive space. This area can be used in many ways: as a traditional classroom or by giving teachers the opportunity to deliver their lessons in another format. What was your vision for this project? To optimize a classic school building to the extent that it meets the requirements of modern teaching methods and, at the same time, to create an inspiring environment for both students and teachers. What do you particularly like about architecture for children? It is an opportunity to let go and play with colours and shapes in a way that you can't in a fancy office building. school architecture? It must be an environment that promotes curiosity, activity and joy, but at the same time offers the opportunity to learn in peace and concentration. What is your favourite place in the building? The transformed hallways that now have a new outlook and a new function. They are no longer a boring and closed surface, but open, versatile and colourful. Why did you choose Armstrong DLW flooring? Because of the beautiful colours, patterns and textures. Where did you receive specialist support from Armstrong? We received excellent support: how we should work with the linoleum to arrange the assorted shapes, learning tables, etc., on the floor. Therefore, every part of the building was given an individual character. What, in your opinion, makes for good primary Materials used: DLW Linoleum Marmorette curacao petrol, lime green, mandarin orange, chili red, terracotta, plumb grey Inlays: Inlays cut with high pressure water jet

8 14 15 Roemer Visscher College in The Hague, NL Future-oriented: State of the art learning You don't only go to school to learn. Ernest Pieters, Director & Architect Rienks Architecten, Netherlands, Knowledge is not only to be found in books at least not at the Roemer Visscher College in The Hague. Inside the ultra-modern and sophisticated building, students learn via tablets and the Internet. Young people are prepared here for a career in the hospitality industry or a technical career. What challenges did this project present to you? The special focus of the design for VMBO Scholenprojekt Haagsch was its multifunctional nature. The school complex consists of a secondary school, a sports hall, a day care centre and a dorm. The idea behind the concept is to strengthen the functions of individual parts of the building, along with the centre as a whole. What was your vision for this project? We wanted to create an expressive architecture that represents the school concept: The students should be proud of where they learn and the foundation that the school builds for their later life. Haagsch embodies a contemporary statement for modern educational buildings. What were your architectural approaches? Creating an environment for young adults is a challenge, and it was at VMBO Haagsch. The school is experiencing a growing intake and, therefore, it was necessary to extend it. Also, the site itself needed to be secured and external impact played a leading role in the design process. At the same time, the architectural details had to be timeless. In other words: It was a project that had to be well-prepared for the future. What is your main starting point when designing a school? An important aspect in the design of a good school building is to address the dynamics of the user, the socalled fun factor. Also, to create a learning environment in which students and staff feel at home and which they like. What is your favorite place in the school? The central entrance with its grand staircase. Students can meet there and see others who are arriving. The social aspect of this area is essential for the whole building. Because you don t only go to school to learn, but also to meet other people. Why did you choose Armstrong DLW flooring? The colours and finishes of DLW Linoleum were a perfect fit for the desired look and feel inside the Haagsch. Materials used: DLW Linoleum Marmorette, various colours

9 16 17 AOC Oost School in Twello, NL Learning from and with nature The boundaries between theory and practice dissolve. Jaap Nieskens, Managing Director & Architect SP Architects bv, Nature, animals and technology in the Dutch village of Twello, the students learn from living objects. The AOC Oost School prepares young people for a career in agriculture, industry and healthcare. Within a totally green school-oasis, the students learn not only theoretically, but also practically: from and with nature. What were the challenges in this project? The 11,000 m² building had to fit within the small village and its rural surroundings. The school is bordered on three sides by family houses and small villas; the rest is agricultural land. What was your vision for this project? We were inspired by the educational vision of the school to combine a small whole with a larger whole: The building is divided into four wings, which are linked together by atriums with high glass facades and roofs. They act as a transition between indoors and outdoors. The classrooms are located on the first floor, the workshops on the ground floor. Each classroom should be a second home for the students of a specific year group. What is your favourite place in the building? The atriums. You get the feeling of being both inside and outside simultaneously. Why did you choose Armstrong DLW flooring? We chose DLW linoleum because it is a natural product which is in keeping with the educational approach of the school. It creates a pleasant and warm atmosphere, is durable, easy to maintain and, therefore, economical. The vast colour selection of the flooring facilitates individual design concepts. And we have had good experiences with DLW Linoleum and Armstrong Customer Services in the past. What does the building mean to you? The glass façade gives you a clear view of nature. The subject matter has, thus, become part of the building the boundaries between theory and practice have dissolved.

10 18 19 Concentrated Sciences: Flooring for universities and adult education Concentrated Sciences: Flooring for universities and adult education The higher education landscape is varied and universities have very different requirements. Depending on the field from medical university laboratories to the Academy of Fine Arts everywhere has specific requirements that affect the choice of flooring. The buildings also house quiet libraries for concentrated learning, lecture halls with good acoustics and high-traffic public areas that are designed to be attractive for a long time. DLW Linoleum is particularly durable thanks to its special LPX Finish surface treatment and is used in entrance areas, corridors, stairwells and classrooms. The wide range of colours, patterns and inlays provide a great deal of leeway for creative floor concepts. You can find examples in the inlay brochure at keyword: "inlay" and in the Vanløse primary school, Copenhagen, project case study on page 12. Appropriate and representative flooring Thousands of students use the different university areas on a daily basis - hence, the regular tracking in of dirt and high footfall make tough and durable flooring a necessity. Similarly, there is a requirement for quick and inexpensive cleaning. Particularly resilient flooring from the DLW Linoleum or DLW Vinyl flooring range is suitable for these requirements. In departments with specialist laboratories, for example, special equipment may also be needed, depending on usage. For these areas, DLW Linoleum or DLW Vinyl floorings with a PUR Eco System surface treatment, which are resistant to chemicals and disinfectants, or conductive vinyl flooring are suitable. Anti-slip properties are required for sanitary facilities, cafeterias and kitchen areas. This need is fulfilled by DLW Vinyl flooring from the Favorite R10 range. With the Mix & Match construction kit, areas with different flooring requirements can be finished in a uniform design concept. A welcoming ambiance in a wood or stone finish can be created using Scala design flooring in, for example, a cafeteria or meeting area. Compared to real materials, they are far more durable and easier to clean. In libraries, students usually require peace and quiet for concentrated work. The extremely durable DLW Fibrebonded has been shown to be effective in these areas, as it contributes both to reduced footfall and pleasant room acoustics. It is also often used in administrative areas. Similar acoustic improvements are achieved with our Colorette AcousticPlus and Marmorette Acoustic(Plus) linoleum flooring.

11 20 21 Faculty of Law in Baltimore, USA Faculty of Law, Baltimore, USA Everything under one roof Each university has its own culture and personality. M. Arch. Robert Matthew Noblett, Partner Behnisch Architects, Boston, Just north of downtown Baltimore is the distinctive building of the University s Law Faculty. It looks like a threedimensional puzzle. Students and professors work in a modern and energy-efficient building; it consumes just 125 kwh/m² per year. This is made possible by a mix of LED lighting, a sophisticated heating, cooling and ventilation concept, plus rainwater collection and subsequent usage of service water. What were the challenges in this project? The contract was for the John and Frances Angelos Law Center, an 18,000 m² building to be built on a base of only 1800 m². Thus, a vertical structure was needed - a real challenge for a lecture hall, through which a large number of students move every day. A concrete structure was completed, including all supply routes: cast tubes and manifolds, electrical conduction paths and data cables had to be arranged therein. The result was a new, technically sophisticated building: a figurehead for the law school in a convincing, sustainable design. What was your vision for the law school? This project offered us a special opportunity to create an environment where the teaching and administrative activities were united. Classrooms, faculty rooms and learning environments should exist side by side to maximise the ways in which individuals and groups can interact with each other. At the same time, the academic and the administrative areas of the faculty should be clearly defined. design. It reflects the special character of the faculty and the place in which it is situated. The University of Baltimore is a sprawling campus which has grown over time, and students commute between faculties. What strikes you about the building? The exterior of the building has the function of being a facade, as well as boasting technical characteristics: the large windows and external, glass sun and rain protectors make the façade a central aspect of the building. What is your favourite place in the building? The underlying garden: a courtyard, which was created half a floor below the road. It was created to direct daylight into the basement, which houses an auditorium with 300 seats and a function room. The advantage of the lowered verges between the garden and the adjacent highway is noise reduction. The garden becomes a versatile outdoor space for events and meetings, and can, of course, also be used as a learning environment. What, in your opinion, makes a successful architectural university building? There is no catchall design for a good university, as each has its own culture and personality. The architect must fully explore and understand both in order to reflect them in his Why did you choose Armstrong DLW flooring? In the classrooms we wanted flooring that is durable, longlasting, sustainable and available in numerous colours to fit our interior concept. Armstrong DLW Linoleum Colorette fulfils all of these requirements. Materials used: DLW Linoleum Colorette vivid green

12 22 23 University canteen in Augsburg, D Eat with your eyes Old and new should be connected in a coherent unit. Stefan Schrammel and Gabriele Ackermann, Architects Schrammel Architekten, Farewell, dismal canteen! The students of the University of Augsberg take their breaks in a veritable pool of freshness. After nearly two years of renovation, the canteen shines, with its dining room, food counter and a canteen in modern, bright, fresh and fruity colours. An inviting place to relax and unwind between lectures and tutorials. What were the challenges in this project? Old and new had to be combined to form a coherent unit: We wanted to maintain and strengthen the character of the existing building which dated from the early 1980s. What was your vision for this project? It had to be a holistic concept for both the converted and open space. It was important to us to highlight the quality of time spent in the space and to create a feeling of spaciousness. Even visual guidance and orientation are used to make it lighter. This was possible primarily through the synergy of daylight and artificial lighting systems. What's so special about this canteen? The dining room overlooks the open roof structure from the 1980s, called the Mero System. We made this strong plastic construction more tangible through a variety of measures, such as: What is your favourite place in the canteen? It's hard to decide on a special favourite; the canteen is experienced better in motion, as a large, open, flowing space over 2 floors. This is also reflected in the title of the inaugural brochure of the Student Union and the University of Augsburg as: From Dinner Guest to Flâneur the University of Augsberg Cafeteria, then and now. Why did you choose Armstrong DLW flooring? The university campus central canteen has an extremely high number of visitors. Therefore, only a floor covering that can withstand these loads in the long term could be used. Together with the client we, therefore, opted for a DLW Vinyl floor. Our request for a special colour was able to be implemented easily with good cooperation from Armstrong, so that the new floor covering fits in perfectly with the color and material concept. the reorganisation of food output in a pavilion concept with theatre-style cooking ceiling illumination enlargement and transparent implementation of existing skylights installation of additional rooflights a fresh colour concept Materials used: DLW Vinyl Pastel bespoke colour; DLW Vinyl Contour light grey and bespoke colour

13 24 25 Training centre in Rehau, D Finding the future: training within old walls We wanted to create an environment in which trainees could learn with joy. Klaus Würschinger, shareholder and managing director WEBERWÜRSCHINGER Gesellschaft von Architekten mbh, The striking bricks and high windows of the Old Weaving Mill rattled with the noise of machines until well into the 1970s. Today the work done there is more cerebral. The building itself dates from the 19th century and, since 2010, has been put to a completely different use. At nearly 1,000 square metres, the REHAU company has opened its state of the art Prolin training centre here. What were the challenges in this project? The requirement was to develop the site without building a reconstruction of the existing structure. What is your favourite place in the building? The trainee common room with its specific room geometry and coloured furniture. What was your vision for this project? The vision was to create a synergy between the old building and the extension, and to create an environment for the trainees in which they would enjoy learning. Why did you choose Armstrong DLW flooring? The quality and aesthetics of the product coupled with our high standards of architecture were a perfect combination. What strikes you about the building? A timeless design that surprises even at second glance because of its special roof shape. Materials used: DLW Needle-punch Strong 951 apple green

14 26 27 Functional and sporty: DLW Sports flooring Functional and sporty: DLW Sports flooring Sports halls are also often used as multifunctional halls. Whether it is basketball, roller sports or gymnastics school sports, fitness training or festivities and leisure events: the flooring must withstand a lot and it s not just sporting requirements that must be borne in mind. It s quite different in kindergartens: here it's all pushing and shoving. In the event of a fall, good cushioning is important, the so-called point elasticity. In the evening, visitors watch plays and concerts in the same area, seated on mobile stands and pedestals. Then the support points are placed under extreme pressure. Detailed analysis of the use of space in the planning phase ensures that appropriate and optimal flooring is chosen. Standardised in accordance with DIN (EN 14904), these coverings offer the best-possible sporting performance, contribute to accident prevention and are durable. Armstrong DLW has developed high-quality Linoleum sports floors, substructures and protection systems for this purpose. The subtle colour palette also provides a good contrast with the subsequently applied lines. The composite of substructure and floor covering, which, in Armstrong products, by default, has a 4 mm thickness, results in a long lasting and durable whole. Sports flooring for every requirement Linodur Sport is the natural, all-round linoleum flooring for school and recreational sports. Its non-slip surface prevents sliding and provides the necessary grip. It is particularly durable, as well as antistatic and bacteriostatic. is also part of the standard linoleum collection so other areas within the school can be laid in the same look flooring. Nature Sport gives the room a warm and comfortable ambiance with its hint of maple wood pattern and colour. Substructure and accessories DLW Sport linoleum flooring is equally well-suited for all sports floor constructions. Especially for kindergartens and movement spaces, etc. The point-elastic sports floor system Linogym II was developed for areas with low and medium load. It is characterised by its excellent damping properties: 26 % of the exerted force is absorbed - this point elasticity considerably reduces the risk of injury. Floor Protection P is used for ground cover for events to avoid mechanical damage or heavy dirt. The 2x1 m format DLW Fibrebonded tiles are flexible to install and save on storage space. More about our range of products can be found at Sports surfaces in ongoing operation Economic considerations are also crucial when choosing the appropriate sports floor. Our DLW Sports flooring is generally delivered unsealed so individual configurations can be applied. The follow-up sealing and care treatment. When in operation, we recommend daily cleaning to effectively remove dust and perspiration (see also DIN 77400). For particularly heavy soiling, we recommend deep cleaning to restore the properties of the flooring. Linovation Sport stands out from the crowd thanks to its high cork content and superior elasticity. The surface structure is completely non-directional and appears more vivid thanks to the addition of contrasting chips.

15 28 29 Sports hall in Bergedorf, Hamburg, D Sculptural exterior, functional interior A gym is a place for rational drives and irrational feelings. Dipl.-Ing. Henning Scheid, Architect BKS Architekten; After a fire in 2009, the Hamburg-Bergedorf district school gymnasium was rebuilt and a cultural centre was attached. It forms an architectural ensemble with the one-to three-storey flat roofs of the school, the central school yard is in the middle. The triple-purpose hall can be used variably: as a whole, for large competitions, or divided into smaller workout areas. What were the challenges in this project? Two opposing room ideas, with a function room and an individual storage room, had to be implemented in one project. What was your vision for this project? We wanted to design a stimulating and sensitive building, where people enjoy winning and lose with good humour, where it s not perfection that counts, but individuality and character. What, in your opinion, makes a good gym? It is a place for rational drives and irrational feelings. Why did you decide on an Armstrong sports floor? The red hue of the flooring together with the wood wall panelling fitted best with the warm atmosphere that we wanted in the room. Materials used: DLW Sports Linodur Sport lava red

16 30 31 Flooring for accessible educational buildings Flooring for accessible educational buildings Accessibility is more than wheelchair access Dr. Peter Müller, Chairman of the Board of the Health Foundation What does accessible mean? No person shall be discriminated against because of his or her disability, as it says in the German Constitution, article 3, paragraph 3. The structural implementation of accessibility is regulated by DIN 18040, 1-3. The goal of accessible construction is to allow people with disabilities or limitations to make full use of their habitat. Regardless of age, individual impairment and language, it should be possible to live equitably, autonomously and independently. Accordingly, educational buildings designed for children, young people and adults must be fully accessible. To ensure that flooring is suitable for use in accessiblydesigned areas, a number of aspects must be taken into consideration. Trip and slip-resistance are fundamental requirements to allow people to use the areas in safety. The surface must not cause glare or reflections in backlight conditions. These requirements are fulfilled by most DLW floor coverings with R9 class anti-slip finish and a low degree of gloss. In accessible buildings, the patterning of the flooring should also be as unobtrusive as possible to avoid confusing contrasts. For people with poor vision, this contrast can appear to be a shadow, and this creates uncertainty when walking. The choice of colour and brightness of the flooring must ensure that there is sufficient contrast with the surroundings and, for example, walls, doors and furniture stand out clearly from the floor. In addition, pictograms, signs and inlays in the flooring can specifically support orientation and contribute to the accessible use of the building. Be inspired by our library: keyword: inlays. Selected Armstrong flooring has been certified Accessibility very good. This recommendation has been made by independent experts that deal with evidence-based design, on the basis of scientific knowledge. This gives you security; you just select the flooring which meets the requirements for accessible construction. Read more about this topic at Plaza Ecopolis Kindergarten in Madrid, E Architects: Ecosistema Urbano Architects Materials used: DLW Linoleum Uni Walton industrial grey Not all flooring is suitable for accessible construction. The striking appearance of the yellow flooring on the right can be confusing. The flooring on the left, however, is subtle in colour and pattern and is, therefore, suitable.

17 32 33 Economic flooring maintenance Economic flooring maintenance If the functionality of the rooms is in the foreground, our flooring keeps discreetly in the background. And works. Claus Dieter Misslang, Product Manager, Armstrong DLW GmbH LPX Finish and PUR Eco System surface treatment Fine stones, sand, road salt and moisture can get onto the flooring, especially in entrance areas. To make it resistant to the hazards of everyday life, all DLW flooring receives a surface treatment as the last step in its chain of producton. For linoleum in educational institutions, we recommend LPX Finish. With proper cleaning and care, the surface does not require an initial care treatment*. Its flawless aesthetics can be restored with just basic cleaning and a care treatment following heavy use, scratching and dirt. For special areas, such as chemistry or biology labs, we recommend the PUR Eco System surface treatment, because it is resistant to chemicals, hand and surface disinfectants. Economic cleaning of resilient floor coverings The growing cost pressures in education have, despite the minimum requirements of DIN 77400, led to a change in cleaning behaviour. Basically, all elastic floor coverings must be straightforward and easy to clean. Lower water and detergent consumption means both less pollution and reduced costs. Therefore, Armstrong flooring makes a valuable contribution by optimizing the environmental performance of a building. Extra protection for floor coverings suitable chair glides The long-term value of a floor covering depends not only on the ongoing maintenance. Proper chair and furniture glides are equally important. When choosing a suitable glide, the following points should be observed: Regular cleaning of the flooring surface and glides immediate replacement in case of damage or wear use of glides with replaceable inserts Especially in schools, damage is often caused by wobbling chairs. Sharp-edged chair legs and the weight of the person in the chair result in floor coverings being subjected to high stresses which can create notches and cause damage to the bond between the flooring and the adhesive. A similar effect also occurs with unsuitable chair rollers. These, along with chair and furniture glides, must satisfy DIN EN and DIN EN and be equipped with a smooth tread (type W).

18 34 35 Cleaning and repair of flooring Cleaning and repair of flooring Stubborn stains or marks can, in most cases, be eliminated easily during the cleaning process. Markus Baum, Technical Service, Armstrong DLW GmbH With proper cleaning and care DLW flooring can last for many decades. Minor repairs to the flooring can be carried out without a problem. Correct cleaning Proper cleaning is paramount. Elastic DLW flooring with an LPX Finish or PUR Eco System surface treatment should not be additionally treated after installation. A simple cleaning operation is sufficient. Depending on the extent of the soiling, dry-wiping is normally enough in regular usage. Less water use also benefits the environment. If heavily soiled, wet and damp wiping methods can be implemented, using a suitable care product. Very stubborn stains, e. g. heel scuffs can be selectively removed using a cleaning device or removed over a large area by a basic cleaning process. For more information, visit our library: keywords: cleaning and care Repair of flooring Especially in entrance areas, pebbles or sand brought in on shoes can cause scratches to resilient floor coverings. Unsuitable furniture glides and chair rollers also harm the floor. Our durable surface treatments have, therefore, proven themselves to be a permanent protective layer. Should any repairs be necessary, basic cleaning and subsequent care treatment of the flooring should be sufficient to restore it to a proper condition. The necessary measures will depend on the type of surface finish. Holes made in linoleum and vinyl flooring can also be resealed. To achieve this, a hot wax in the same colour, e.g. a welding rod, is applied and then smoothed. For more information, contact Technical Services at Availability guarantee for DLW Linoleum We provide a lifetime guarantee for the particularly soughtafter DLW Linoleum Marmorette collection flooring.
