Flooring: the foundation for healthy environments

In healthcare, flooring is not simply a design feature. It’s an investment in the health and safety of patients and caregivers alike. Through evidence-based design, you can create supportive spaces that improve operations, efficiencies, and wellness. That begins with the floor. With the right flooring solution, you can ease the cost and time of maintenance, reduce harmful noise, and provide added comfort underfoot — all of which contribute to a happier, healthier environment.

Reduce your carbon footprint

In the beginning of 2019, we have officially announced that the nora systems GmbH has been included into the Interface Carbon Neutral Floors™ program. As a result, Interface’s product portfolio – carpet tiles, luxury vinyl tiles (LVT), and since 2019 also nora rubber floor coverings – is carbon neutral across the entire product lifecycle.

Offered as a standard to every customer, at no extra cost, the program helps them meet their own sustainability goals. We know the impact of your floor covering on climate change. With Carbon Neutral Floors™ we support you in reducing your personal carbon balance.

As part of Carbon Neutral Floors™ we offer to calculate your contribution to tackle global warming, providing a certificate that outlines how much carbon your flooring purchase has offset and contributed to your organisation’s sustainability goals.

Healthcare & the essence of transforming patient lives

When a carpet tile reflects the patterns, textures, and colors of nature, it can use this visual and sensory impact to help build therapeutic and restorative effects into Health Care spaces.

These biophilic design principles are at the core of our dedication to health care Essence Collections. They form a reconnection to the natural world which can reduce stress, lower blood pressure and aid recovery through a sense of energy and well being in patients.

Based on visual elements that reflect a natural landscape, Essence is easy to maintain with patented anti-microbial protection. Organic, subtle and luxurious, in combination with Intersept®, each floor prevents infection and minimizes odour - guaranteed for the life of the product. Improved air quality plus outstanding sound absorption creates quieter environments while the anti-fatigue softness gives extra comfort to patients and staff.

Patient Experience & ROI

Patient outcomes and cost management are the highest indicators of a healthcare facility’s effectiveness. Patients need to rest and recover in quiet, hygienic surroundings. Maintenance teams need to turn over spaces quickly and simplify their maintenance routines. In healthcare spaces, having the right flooring can make a huge impact.

Health & Safety

Creating safer spaces is about human-centered design. And human-centered design, simply put, is informed by people. It’s important to mitigate slips, trips, and falls, just as it’s important to provide underfoot comfort for caregivers who are constantly on their feet. Beyond that, you want flooring that elevates indoor air quality — so patients and caregivers can breathe easier. Our flooring is easier to install, maintain, bacteria-resistant, slip-resistant, sound-absorbing, and eco-friendly.
