Rubber floor coverings with numerous benefits
The client required a floor covering of the highest quality, which would simultaneously highlight the modern design of Bergman Clinics.
“The natural durability of rubber, the reduced cost of ownership and the fact that their floors are free from plasticizers, were our key reasons for choosing nora,” says Gerben Nahuys, Facility Coordinator & Medical Technology at Bergman Clinics.
Easy and cost-effective to clean
A dense, non-porous surface makes nora rubber floor coverings exceptionally durable and easy to clean. It also keeps them looking as good as new, even after years of intensive use. And, unlike other resilient floor coverings, they require no coating. As maintenance costs account for some 90 percent of the lifecycle costs for floor coverings, they also represent the most cost-effective, long-term solution.
Free from plasticizers
nora floor coverings are free from plasticizers (phthalates) and halogens (e.g. chlorine). This not only makes them environmentally friendly; it also prevents shrinkage and leaves them more stable than other types of floor covering.
nora products therefore guarantee a healthy indoor environment. Which is why in 2006 they were the first elastic floor covering to be awarded the “Blue Angel” environmental label.
Exceptionally hygienic properties
These rubber floor coverings also boast a number of hygiene benefits: They are impervious to dirt and resistant to surface disinfectants. Brief exposure to solvents, diluted acids and alkalis also leaves no traces. Even iodine/ chlorhexidine-containing skin disinfectants can be readily removed without leaving any residue.
Unlike other resilient floor coverings, nora rubber floor coverings do not require coating. This not only saves time and money; it also enables continuous operation – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
As they make a significant contribution to the economic success of hospitals and clinics, this is of particular importance in operation complexes. With their long life span, nora floor coverings make an excellent choice in this regard too.
