Rubber Flooring Recognized for Sustainability

Rubber flooring from noraplan has been recognized by Architectural Products Magazine for providing unique solutions to design challenges specific to market segments. In its annual Product Innovations Awards competition, Architectural Products Magazine recognizes five products singled out to receive the honor. 

According to one of the judges, “In the area of flooring products that are healthier alternatives to vinyl tile, nora rubber flooring is unique. The nora product line is a leader in conscientious and sustainable thinking in the manufacture of architectural products.”

The floor combines all the material advantages of premium rubber flooring, from perception of cleanliness and a quiet healing environment to caregiver retention with a color palette of rich and vibrant tones. The result is a floor covering that connects patients, families, providers and caregivers to the inspired possibilities of every healing environment, supporting positive outcomes and patient engagement. 

“We are thrilled to achieve this special citation,” says Tim Cole, vice president of marketing at nora systems, Inc. “noraplan lona is a unique product whose splashes and droplets of color lend texture and creativity to any healthcare setting, while also providing the performance features that meet the highly specialized needs of healthcare spaces.”

The Architectural Products Product Innovation Awards (PIAs) determine and honor innovation in the development and refinement of buildings-related products that range the gamut, from cladding systems to interior finishes. Judged by a group of independent industry professionals that included architects, interior designers, lighting designers and veteran architectural, engineering and construction writers, the winners in each of the program’s 14 categories represent those products judges found to be the most innovative and worth investigating. Judges also awarded special citations for products that particularly serve a major building market niche—healthcare, offices, retail, public/cultural, education and hospitality.
