The name nora originated from the inventor of the rubber compound, the chemist Dr. Walter Nürnberger (lat. norimbergensis). Under this brand name, we develop, produce and sell high-quality, elastic floor coverings and stair treads as well as suitable accessories. However, our expert knowledge extends not only over the entire manufacturing process of the floor coverings, but also includes the most diverse market segments, such as industry, health and education, whose individual requirements for our floors have been optimally adapted over the course of time. Our norament® and noraplan® product lines stand for the highest quality throughout the world.
Our customers always come first for us and can rest assured that they will achieve outstanding results for their building when working with nora®. From tender support to on-site installation monitoring by our technicians to after-sales service - nora always remains a reliable partner at the side of its customers. By sharing our expertise with our customers, we can help them make the best choice for their individual projects. Since 2018, the nora systems GmbH belongs to the internationally active Interface Group. With nora, Interface complements its product mix of carpet tile and LVT with rubber flooring, giving customers more choices to meet their flooring needs across endless commercial applications.
In 2017, the floor covering norament 926/825 with the famous pastille celebrated its 50th anniversary. At that occasion, we compiled a colourful special page with timlessly interesting information - see here.
As a part of the Interface Group, the nora systems GmbH has been included into the Carbon Neutral Floors™ program in 2019, which means that nora rubber floor coverings are CO₂ neutral* across their entire product lifecycle. Offered as a standard to every customer, at no extra cost, the Carbon Neutral Floors™ program helps our customers to meet their own sustainability goals.* nora floor coverings are CO₂ neutral over the entire product life cycle. We are continuously working on further reducing CO₂ emissions within the value chain through various measures. Remaining CO₂ emissions are off set by the acquisition of certificates relating to audited emission reduction projects.

Nature often provides the best ideas. This also applies to nora floor coverings, which are manufactured from high-quality natural and industrial rubbers. Added to this are minerals from natural deposits and other components such as environmentally friendly colour pigments - and ready is the basis for an extremely durable and at the same time permanently elastic classic "Made in Germany". Thanks to the special properties of rubber, nora floor coverings require neither phthalate plasticizers nor coatings and keep their unique functionality and aesthetics for decades. No less unique is the nora complete system. With an unparalleled range of accessories and comprehensive service, it ensures both a harmonious and cross-functional design - across all surfaces, stairs and floors.
