Enid Public Schools strives to be known as one of Oklahoma’s most innovative school districts. When planning for the renovation of four elementary school gymnasiums over the 2021 summer break an inspection was done to assess the condition of seven other existing elementary school gym floors in the district. Five of the schools had been replaced with foam backed vinyl gym flooring, provided by two different manufacturers in 2016 and 2017. The remaining two schools had Mondo Advance vulcanized rubber flooring installed 2012. After the inspections Enid Public Schools decided to specify Mondo Advance for the 2021 elementary school gym renovations. According to the school district the deciding factors included durability, ease of maintenance and life cycle cost of the gym flooring.
“We decided to go with Mondo because of the durability and cost of the floor. The Mondo floors that we had prior to installing the additional gym floors outperformed and were easier to maintain than other flooring systems that we have in similar multipurpose rooms”Sam Robinson – Enid Public Schools
Elementary school gymnasiums often serve as a multi-purpose space. Most of the gyms at the Enid elementary schools double as an auditorium so it was important that the new flooring would hold up to tables and chairs.
Mondo Advance is constructed with multiple layers of vulcanized rubber that are permanently bonded together using heat and pressure. As a result, Mondo Advance is the most durable multi-purpose gym flooring product on the market. This multi-layer system is designed to provide optimal conditions for basketball and volleyball play while holding up to multi-purpose activities including the use of tables and chairs. The non-porous rubber wear layer makes Mondo Advance stain resistant, easy to clean and it never requires wax or floor finish.
“Performance Surfaces has been great to work with. They are very knowledgeable and quick to respond to any questions.”Sam Robinson – Enid Public Schools
Performance Surfaces provided a turnkey solution at the four elementary schools including everything from tear out of the existing VCT to installation of the new Mondo Advance gym flooring with painted game lines. The installations included Mondo Everlay T underlayment to prevent future issues caused by excessive concrete moisture vapor emissions.
