Noraplan Lona, a rubber flooring product from Nora Quality Rubber Flooring Systems, was recently honoured with the Plus X Award, a prestigious innovation prize for technology, sports and lifestyle products.

Noraplan Lona achieved three out of seven Plus X seals of approval for High Quality, Functionality and Ergonomics. As a product with the maximum number of seals of approval, the rubber flooring was named the ‘Best Product of 2017’ in the floor coverings category. Distinct characteristics such as longevity, green credentials and favourable lifecycle costs, in addition to the sophisticated and innovative design made Noraplan Lona a standout product.

Plus X Award winners were chosen by an independent international award jury, with representatives from 25 sectors. The High Quality category recognises products of the highest durability and longevity; the Functionality category recognises a product that goes beyond basic operations and performs particularly efficiently, while remaining user-friendly; and the Ergonomics category highlights the most people-oriented products that are easy to handle and comfortable to use.

Dirk Oswald, Product Manager for Noraplan at Nora Systems said that they were delighted to pick up the ‘Product of the Year 2017’ award in the Floor Coverings category.

Noraplan Lona, derived from the Spanish word for canvas, offers an original splatter design thanks to the use of innovative manufacturing technology. The floor’s base colour forms the foundation and the effect on the room can vary substantially depending on the colour combinations and perspective with the flooring surface appearing both structured and as a single colour.
