Operating room flooring – optimised for high performance

The operating room is a core part of any hospital. In addition to its often life-saving function, an ER room makes a significant contribution to the hospital's economic success. So it makes sense for operating theatres to be ready to use around the clock and for them to have the right interior fittings to fulfil this purpose.

Furnishing highly demanding areas such as operating rooms and intensive care units requires years of experience and technical expertise. These areas, more than any other, require high-quality materials that withstand constant use and at the same time guarantee clinical sterilization in the operating room. Selecting the right operating room flooring is not only a question of patient safety, but also a decisive economic factor.

Mechanical durability is absolutely crucial, especially in areas in which heavy equipment is constantly being moved around on wheels. Robust, highly durable flooring in the operating room is able to evenly distribute the load exerted on a small surface area to the subfloor. Distributing the load to a larger area effectively prevents damage to the subfloor.

Sterilization in the operating room

Alongside mechanical durability, sterilization in the operating room is a top priority. Selecting materials based on their hygienic properties can save lives. When it comes to finding the right operating room flooring, cleaning also plays an important role in this context.

Rubber floor coverings from nora® have a very dense surface. The high-quality rubber floors are extremely durable. They do not need to be coated and generally do not require grouting. This makes it much easier to clean and maintain sterilization in the operating room as well as in other demanding clinical environments.

Ergonomic floor coverings for modern ER rooms

Rubber floors from nora offer excellent ergonomic properties that ensure added comfort, which is especially relevant when performing lengthy operations. The permanently elastic floor relieves the strain on joints, thus preventing joint and back pain in addition to delaying the onset of fatigue, an important aspect when it comes to safety and sterilaztion in the operating room. After all, staff must be able to fully concentrate on the task at hand in these critical areas.

Thanks to the high level of ergonomic comfort they offer for both walking and standing, rubber floor coverings from nora improve the ability of the entire OP team to concentrate and perform. Durability, comfort and sterilization in the operating room: all these aspects were given equal consideration during development to create an operating room flooring that is just as capable and reliable as the medical staff themselves.

Dissipative operating room flooring

Electrostatically dissipative floor coverings offer effective ESD protection for sensitive, life-sustaining devices and equipment. The dissipative floor ensures that sensitive components are not damaged by electrostatic discharge, which could impair the function of the device. After all, even absolute sterilization in the operating room cannot help if critical equipment fails during a live-saving operation.

Dissipative floor coverings from nora offer the highest degree of safety and also protects against explosions caused by flammable gas/air mixtures. The minimum insulation resistance of the high-quality floors means that electrosurgery can be performed safely.
