Doing a Fine Job Day In, Day Out: nora Rubber Floorcoverings

Freudenberg Building Systems can point to a lengthy list of references. Top-ranking architects and designers have been using nora rubber floorings for many years now. The Transrapid operating company in Shanghai, for example, has rounded off the visual appeal of its futuristic city terminal with state-of-the-art rubber floorcoverings from Freudenberg Bausysteme KG. And day in, day out, nora floorcoverings prove their actual worth: in residential housing, clinics, schools, production facilities, shops, and in transportation systems like trains, buses and ships.

Cost-Efficiency Rooted in Top-Quality Raw Materials and Innovative Production Processes

The reasons behind this all-round competence of the eco-compatible, resilient flooring lie firstly in the product characteristics of the rubber material, and secondly in the 50 years and more of experience that Freudenberg Building Systems can tap into when it comes to manufacturing rubber floorcoverings. These factors combine to create floorings that, thanks to their extremely dense surface, are exceptionally hard-wearing and easy to clean; in contrast to other types of flooring, too, they do not have to be coated. These pluses in terms of cost-efficiency are supplemented by high dimensional stability and outstanding fire protection properties.

Instead of tired feet, nora floorings offer high walking comfort nora rubber floorcoverings are permanently resilient and anti-slip, thus providing a particularly high level of walking comfort. Their excellent footfall sound absorption improvement values make them an ideal flooring in areas with heavy pedestrian traffic.

Eco-friendliness is a Defined Corporate Goal

nora floorings are manufactured from high-quality industrial and natural rubber materials, minerals from natural deposits, and eco-compatible color pigments. This reduces the environmental impact and ensures enhanced safety in the event of a fire, since there will be no hydrogen-chloride gases released, nor any hydrochloric acid, dioxins or furans. Eco-compatible production processes and packaging, plus the fact that nora floorcoverings are installed using eco-friendly process materials, show how seriously the firm has taken environmental awareness on-board.
