A busy new elementary school relies on nora® for comfort and durability.

Thornwilde Elementary School in Hebron, KY, was built in response to tremendous community growth and the need to redistribute the student population from another school in the district. The new school is one of 23 in the Boone County School District – the third largest in the state.

The school district was already familiar with nora® flooring – it’s a staple of construction and renovation projects in the Boone County School District, owing to its durability, comfort and low maintenance. In fact, the district has been using nora products for nearly a decade.

For the Thornwilde project, administrators chose norament® grano and noraplan® eco for the busiest areas of the school, including classrooms, corridors and the cafeteria. The flooring provides a consistent learning atmosphere for students and gives teachers extra comfort underfoot to keep them focused and energized throughout the day.

The benefits of nora flooring extend beyond the school year, too. During summer months and school breaks, the maintenance staff rely on the chemical-free nora® pro clean system to restore and refresh the floor’s appearance. “The nora flooring requires less maintenance than any other flooring we’ve had,” said Mike Blevins, chief operating officer of Boone County Schools.

The simplified maintenance requirements and consistently fresh appearance of nora flooring make it ideal for high foot traffic and the boundless energy of students and staff who daily pass through the halls and classrooms of the school.
