We opened an all-new school in 2017. I'd always had carpet before, but after having a band hall with now 30 year old carpet, didn't know that carpet was the way to go. I was convinced that polished concrete could have acoustic treatment and work well. Our main hall is that flooring - and I wouldn't recommend it just because chairs moving across it are distractingly loud to me. |
Across the hallway in our secondary hall it attaches to the stage and was supposed to have stage flooring in both the stage and that room. The contractors snuck a fast one across the superintendents desk that resulted in this vinyl tile that's like 2'x4' sections that looks like a light wood color. Honestly it was pretty, but I made them change out the stage to at least some black tile so we didn't have reflection issues for theater. (Lighting was impossible because it was light) It stayed in our secondary hall, and I have to say it's my favorite surface to rehearse on. It's moppable, but it's not as loud as the regular cheap square tiles, or the concrete. It almost has a little cushion to it. If I could go back in time that's what I'd do the main hall in.
