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.
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.
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.
“As a kindergarten teacher, I have a special responsibility. It is important to me that my charges feel comfortable with me. The environment plays an important role in this. nora system blue is certified as low-emission, and thus offers the best possible contribution to protecting children’s physical well-being.”

The DGNB has developed a system that rates building in the categories of ecology, economy, and quality, among others, and thus makes it possible to compare the sustainability of different solutions. nora rubber floors always receive top marks in these ratings.
