New nora® enlighten Collection Sparks Creativity


nora systems, Inc. introduces the enlighten collection, premium rubber flooring that sparks creativity and supports safety in K-12 learning spaces.

“At nora, we recognize the significant impact floor coverings have on K-12 facilities and are committed to providing products that help create safer schools and support students as they learn, play and grow,” said Tim Cole, vice president of marketing at nora systems, Inc., North America. “The enlighten collection does just this, creating safe, inspirational environments that enlighten young minds and encourage creativity so that kids can be kids.”

The nora® enlighten collection consists of norament® jubilee and noraplan® stone premium rubber floor coverings and a selection of norament round and hammered stairtreads. Working together, these floors bring a complimentary palette of neutral and fun, vibrant colors and durable, low-maintenance flooring solutions to busy entrance areas, student-friendly classroom designs, heavily trafficked corridors and connecting spaces, and primary emergency routes in stairwells. The result is inspirational learning spaces that offer excellent acoustics and good indoor air quality for improved concentration levels and better health among students and staff.

norament jubilee offers a hammered surface and granulated look for a timeless appearance and a unique blend of durability and versatility. Combining bold hues sprinkled with vibrant pops of primary and luminescent colors with excellent wear abrasion and ergonomic properties makes it the flooring of choice for a wide array of applications in education facilities.

The rich textures and durability of stone are the inspiration for noraplan stone. The floor covering features a non-directional scattered granular pattern for an understated appearance that complements the design of education facilities. Available in a lightly textured, non-directional scattered granule pattern, the floor adds strength and lasting reliability to stand up to the demands of indoor spaces.

Rounding out the collection, norament round and hammered stairtreads contribute to a safer environment thanks to an all-in-one pre-shaped stair nosing, riser and tread. Like all floors in the collection, the low-maintenance, slip-resistant stairtreads require no finishes, coatings or harsh chemicals and are designed to stand up to heavily trafficked stairwells.

The enlighten collection also offers these important attributes:

  • Naturally bacteriostatic and fungistatic.
  • Dense, nonporous surface that helps repel dirt and bacteria while resisting stains.
  • Absence of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), plasticizers (phthalates) and halogens (e.g., chlorine) for improved indoor air quality.
  • GREENGUARD Gold Certified for low VOC emissions.
  • Meets or exceeds OSHA requirements for slip resistance.
  • Extended life cycle, which reduces the need for frequent removal and disposal.
