Deerfield School District #109 (K-8)

Deerfield, Illinois, USA


  • A high performing school district on Chicago’s North Shore that serves approximately 3,100 students from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade across four elementary and two middle schools.


  • The school’s VCT was hard to keep clean, especially in winter months and required regular stripping and waxing.
  • Tiles were small, visually dated and showed seam expansion due to shrinkage.
  • The EVS team needed a low maintenance, resilient flooring option that could withstand daily traffic and soiling.
  • School officials also wanted a high-gloss, expensive looking tile that fell within the district budget.
  • Areas to be covered: corridors and entrance ways.

American Biltrite's SOLUTION:

  • Texas Granite was selected as a no wax and low-cost maintenance solution; 25,000 sq. ft. installed.
  • The EVS team has noted how easily the floors clean, and gloss levels are easily restored without using costly products.
  • Larger 24” tile was installed to provide a seamless look. 12” tiles in accent colors served as a border and design statement.
  • School officials and faculty are pleased with the high-gloss, high-end appearance of the flooring while accommodating the high traffic by students.
