“The introduction of all-new colours to the noraplan eco palette speaks to the company’s commitment to periodically review our product offerings and ensure that they continue to align with customer needs and design trends,” explained Dirk Oswald, noraplan product manager at nora. “In this case, the new palette is the result of a worldwide workshop where customers were presented with 60 samples to study and comment on. The final colour palette was selected on the basis of feedback provided by these customers and additional input from our sales force.”
Aptly named, the eco-friendly, economical floor covering uses recycled materials to create a smooth, high-performance floor covering that features a two-tone randomly scattered colour chip pattern. More than 8 million square meters of the popular flooring have been sold since its introduction in 1999 for use in healthcare, education and a variety of other applications, including Germany’s University Medical Center Mainz and Hertha Berlin Sport Club boarding school as well as China’s Peking Union Medical College Hospital and West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu.
“noraplan eco is an affordable option for those who understand and prefer the benefits that rubber flooring offers but are working with a limited budget,” said Oswald. “In addition, each of the new colours coordinates with other floor coverings in the noraplan product offering.”
The permanently resilient noraplan eco does not contain any PVC, plasticizers and halogens and is Blue Angel certified. Highly ergonomic for walking and standing, the flooring features high footfall sound absorption properties and an extended life cycle, which reduces the need for frequent removal and disposal.
