nora rubber flooring reduces footfall sound, or noise, which is transferred throughout assisted living facilities via slabs, walls or material strips. Noise level is reduced by up to 75% if footfall sound absorption reaches ΔLw 18 dB, subjective or perceived. Our noraplan acoustic floor coverings are designed with this threshold in mind. Noise generated by walking on them, especially with “hard” shoe soles, is significantly lower—no matter what footwear is involved. Compared with conventional hard floor coverings, our products create superior room acoustics that are resistant to other forms of noise. That means quieter, friendlier interiors for your assisted living facility.
