nora Rubber Flooring Benefits


What is Rubber Flooring?

nora® rubber floorings are made of high-quality natural and industrial rubbers. They are combined with minerals from natural sources and environmentally compatible colour pigments. This together helps to create durable rubber floors.

There are two types of floor coverings:
norament® tiles - Pressed under high pressure, these tiles present a very dense, closed surface. This
makes them extremely resistant to wear and supports fast and easy cleaning.
noraplan® sheets - noraplan floor coverings are available in rolls or tiles. With many designs and
colours to choose from, there is a lot of design potential.

The benefits of nora rubber flooring

They’re carbon neutral
nora flooring is carbon neutral across its full product life cycle.

It's economical
nora flooring has a long-life span, even in busy footfall areas. The cost-effective cleaning methods ensure reduced maintenance costs.

It’s durable
nora is extremely durable as it is manufactured for heavy loads. The elasticity and dimensional stability allows the floors to withstand impact without damage. It is also scratch and wear resistant.

It’s uncoated
norament and noraplan floors remain durable in the long term without the need for coatings, even when subject to heavy traffic.

It’s hygienic
Due to their dense, non-porous rubber surface, nora floors repel germs, giving them little to no opportunity to propagate. They can be fully disinfected, ideal for high risk areas too.

It's versatile
Replacing or repairing the flooring is straightforward. It can be updated in sections for easy and low-cost maintenance.
