The design of educational buildings needs to inspire learning and creativity amongst their students. At the same time, consider factors such as acoustic properties, air quality and increasing focus on operational spend, durability and maintenance costs.
There’s also high peaks of foot traffic in-between classes where corridors have to deal with foot traffic from all directions and with strict timetables, term time repairs need to be quickly applied to minimise disruption. Here ARDEX Fast Track products offer high performance and incredibly fast installation, for example ARDITEX NA Levelling and Smoothing Compound reduces the need for intensive preparation and priming and allows you to apply floorcoverings from as little as 3 hours.
