Installation & Care
Fire protection and fire toxicological safety play a decisive role in industrial buildings. Whether in offices, laboratories, or production, choosing the right construction materials during the planning phase makes a decisive contribution to a successful fire protection plan.
As they are highly flame-retardant, nora rubber floors offer great advantages in this regard. In addition, they are PVC- and thus halogen-free, and do not release hazardous hydrochloric gas in the event of a fire.
It is often the case that during fires, more than 90% of victims are harmed not by flames, but by smoke. Many floor coverings or coatings contain substances that release life-threatening gases when burned, and thus make the smoke even more dangerous.
The advantage of nora floors is that in the event of a fire they will not release hydrochloric gas, which can lead to respiratory tract burns. When hydrogen chloride combines with the water used to put out fires, the hydrochloric acid produced corrodes buildings, machinery, and electrical contacts even outside the immediate center of the fire. These consequences of the burning of PVC are often greater than the direct fire damage.
The formation of toxic, halogenated dioxins and furans can also be avoided with nora floor coverings. They have therefore been classified as fire-toxicologically safe.
A professional fire protection plan is individually tailored to the building and guarantees the best possible safety. In industrial buildings, equipment and construction materials can often cause fires to spread more quickly.
nora rubber floors help you meet fire protection regulations. They are highly flame-retardant and will not release toxic halogenated dioxins and furans in the event of a fire. In this way, they can help you meet and verify your fire protection requirements at all times.
