Quality pays off
Building operators save time and money with rubber floor coverings
Weinheim, March 2013 – Floors have to meet particularly tough specifications in buildings with a lot of public traffic. Floor coverings in public authority buildings, schools and hospitals, for instance, have to be not only extremely durable and hard wearing, but must also be resistant to stains and damage, as well as being hygienic and easy to clean. Another key aspect is the health and environmental compatibility of the products.
Long life span
Floor coverings from nora systems are rubber through and through, and their surfaces are totally sealed and therefore practically indestructible. Stains, scratches and other damage hardly have any chance at all. In contrast to linoleum and PVC, rubber coverings do not require a coating. This is a great advantage as other resilient floor coverings have to be regularly recoated as soon as the prone surface has been scratched, becomes stained or wears down, which is both time-consuming and cost-intensive. Nora floor coverings, on the other hand, still look practically like new even after decades of intensive use.
Easy to clean – with no chemicals at all
An innovative floor care system was recently developed by nora systems: nora pads. These are cleaning disks that are impregnated with countless, microscopically small diamonds. The floor covering is cleaned and polished mechanically – using just water and without any chemicals at all. nora pads can be used with most standard types of machine and are available in different sizes. Cleaning floors using these pads is not only cost-effective (since it makes cleaning agents superfluous), but it is also good for the environment and people’s health. In this respect, nora rubber floor coverings have always been a step ahead of the competition. Devoid of plasticizers or halogens, they became the first ever resilient floor coverings to be awarded the “Blue Angel …for low emissions” eco-label as long ago as 2006. This was followed by other international Green Design certificates.
