Outstanding floor coverings for outstanding educational facilities


Whether it’s grade school, a university, or a private kindergarten, educational institutions today are competing for the confidence of parents, children, and educators. This confidence can be shaken by news reports about bad room air. Keep this from happening at your by avoiding emissions from the outset.

Good indoor air quality begins with the floor

Due to the large area it covers, flooring has a significant impact on emissions in a room. For a healthy learning environment, nora rubber floors are ideal, because they have been tested for emissions and are free from plasticizers (especially phthalates). Moreover, they contain no chlorine-based organic compounds.

That means you are on the safe side

nora rubber floor coverings meet the “Blue Angel” health protection requirements for low emissions, as well as many other international environmental standards ((link to environmental standards)). You will have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have done everything you can to ensure a healthy learning environment for children, students, teachers, and caregivers.
