  • How do I install Learning Trails?
    1) Preparation of the surface: Sweep the area free from dirt and debris. If the surface has an oily residue, we recommend cleaning the surface with a proper cleaner to remove the residue. Make sure the area is completely dry before attempting to install. Align your graphic on the install surface to ensure the graphic fits as desired. If precise placement is required, use masking tape to mark your edge lines. 2) Peel Back Release Liner: Once you're ready to install, we recommend flipping the graphic over so that the printed side is face down. Peel back release liner exposing the adhesive. On large graphics (2ft. or larger) we recommend pulling the release liner only partially at first. You will pull the release liner as you adhere the graphic to the floor.

 3) Installation: When ready, flip your graphic back over and position the graphic in place. Starting at the edge, begin installing the graphic from the middle outward, working out any air bubble that may develop. Learning Trail Graphics feature pressure-sensitive adhesive so the more pressure you use, the stronger the initial bond. Use your hands at first or a rubber J-roller LIGHTLY, to ensure proper alignment. If your graphic is mis-aligned, pull up the graphic and try again. Once your graphic is aligned properly, simply work your way across the graphic until the entire graphic is fully in place. (If installing a large graphic, you'll want to pull the release liner as you move along.) Lastly, APPLY FIRM PRESSURE using a rubber J-roller across the entire surface of the graphic. Again, the more pressure you use, the stronger the initial bond. As a final step, it's always best to roll over the edges of the graphic one last time to ensure edges are adhered. We recommend an industrial heat gun for the strongest bond. Once the graphic is installed, we recommend no foot traffic on the floor for at least 24 hours. We recommend 1 or 2 coats of wax after the graphic is installed for 24 hours. We offer installation for local customers.
  • Do I need to test the surface prior to installation?
    Yes. We always recommend that our Learning Trail Graphic be tested prior to final installation. Graphics can be installed on variety of floors such as vinyl floors, hardwood floors, concrete, and laminate floors with texture. Most of these floors have a coating on them, and the trails can be applied to a wax coated floor.
  • Can Trails be used outdoors?
  • Will the graphics damage our floors?
  • Can Learning Trail Graphics ever be removed?
    Yes. Our movement trails have permanent adhesive on them, but can be removed after being utilized for a period of time. We always recommends changing up the trails after 1 to 2 years to help stimulate the students brain development. The trails can be removed with some heat, and a normal wax stripper that would be used to remove the wax from the floor. A small scrapper can be utilized to lift the edges of the graphics.
  • Is there a warranty?
  • How are Learning Trails maintained?
  • Are Learning Trail graphics are repositionable?
    No. Due to the longevity requirements of durable floor graphics, a specially-formulated adhesive is used on Learning Trails graphics. The adhesive is designed to hold graphics in place for as long as possible. This gives Learning Trail Graphics the ability to stand up to high volume student traffic, carts, and other elements.
  • How long do the Learning Trails last?
  • Do the Learning Trails need to be waxed over?
