08 Oct Benefits of rubber flooring for high traffic environments
Today’s design and construction projects are marked with tight deadlines, tight budgets and analysis paralysis thanks to the myriad of flooring product options available. The modern floor ranges are endless and the designs plentiful.
While we are so busy getting all our things done in this immediate and hopefully efficient world, it’s easy to gloss over the impact that a floor can have in a commercial environment. If you need to make sure that you are specifying reliable and tough floors that can absorb the hardest daily load, then look no further than FloorworX, a strategic business advisor in flooring solutions.
The company has partnered with nora* to deliver a high-density range of commercial rubber sheeting and tiles that can handle high continuous foot traffic in education facilities, hospitals and healthcare environments, corporate spaces and leisure areas. The variety of smooth colour spectrums can work in isolation or complement each other. The range comprises three main categories of products, namely noraplan* sheeting; norament* tiles, stair coverings and stair treads; as well as nora accessories for skirtings, stair nosings and stair angles.
The key to this range’s success is its resilience. While for the most part, walking doesn’t transfer massive amounts of stress at any single moment in time, it is the continuous strain over an extended period that tests the durability of the product. Features of the range that support high traffic indoor environments include stain and slip resistance, high oil and grease resistance, sound absorbence, low levels of maintenance as well as fire and cigarette burn resistance.
The rubber flooring range was developed to offer utmost care for, and least impact on the environment. The low-emitting, durable rubber floor coverings have been designed to minimise the ecological and environmental operational footprint thanks to them having no PVC, plasticiser or halogen content.
This robust flooring solution caters to the needs of highly demanding floor environments by being impact and shock resistant. Contact FloorworX for full installation, suggested specifications as well as storage information on the range. FloorworX will also suggest colour specs for each environment and explain their five year limited warranty terms and conditions.
