Education Projects - Colour, Floors, Tools & More
As education projects ramp up SASGO are able to call on the advice of flooring experts, as well as our knowledgeable team, to help you and your clients. From colour choice, the best type of flooring for the job, the perfect walling system to time saving machiinery hire we really do have it all.
1. Colour Choice in Education
Our friends at Tarkett did a lot of research about colours in an educational environment and how it varies for different age groups, and how important it is to mix colours by different room types. You can read their full report here, but we have also produced a simple reference guide for you that includes the colour concepts you can share with your client. The guide also has a useful checklist of all you need for a flooring job - a handy reminder when costing a job.

3. Walling - Consider the benefits of Hygienic Walling
It is not just flooring to consider in Education we can offer you top branded hygienic walling systems. We especially recommend our DURACLAD range of wall cladding options. It is a durable and hygienic internal wall cladding system used to prevent bacteria and mould growth and promote a safe and hygienic environment. It is also suitable as an impact protection in busy traffic schools and colleges. This makes our Duraclad system a smart, attractive and a cost effective solution for education establishments. The array of colours means a great learning environment can be created, areas can be zoned and there is the added reassurance of health and safety.
4. Save Time on Site - Our Professional Tool Hire Service
The added benefit we offer you is a professional floor preparation tool hire service. It is often far more cost effective to hire tools for education projects, especially large projects and the advantage of using SASGO is we can deliver and pick up direct from site. In certain areas we can even offer timed deliveries and bring your tools as well as all the products you need to do the job to you at the same time. Just one of the many ways we keep the project moving.
