Libraries and museums are progressively becoming the marketplace of the 21st century, the new open space where people come together.
Libraries and museums are increasingly designed to create an experience and an emotional bond with the public. They are changing from mere exhibition spaces to environments that encourage people to return from time to time. Artigo has extensive experience supplying rubber flooring for museums and libraries, having worked with some of the most important architectural firms in the sector.
Features of rubber flooring for museums and libraries
- Helps reduce sound pollution by dampening the sound of footsteps.
- Guarantees exceptional durability.
- Is easy to maintain.
- Offers a wide range of colors and textures to make the environment unique.
Internal Air Quality
Studies show that people who live and work in environments with good IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) have significantly higher cognitive function scores. That goes for pupils and teachers as well.
Cognitive performance is directly affected by the environment: according to German Blue Angel and US Greenguard certifications, rubber floorings emit very few pollutants to the indoor air and, thus, do not affect the health of the inhabitants.
Artigo acoustic rubber floorings represent a valid solution for entrances, corridors and other heavily-trafficked or common areas.
The acoustic floorings ensure a reduction of noise due to treading up to 21 dB.
Reference standard EN ISO 10140-1: 2016 – EN ISO 10140-3:2010 – EN ISO 717-2:2013. Certified by CSI, test report 0041/DC/ACU/18_2 date 08/06/2018. Also certified by Cofrac/CSTB for noise reduction 18 dB.
Rubber flooring can easily be cleaned with professional products, as a part of any school or kindergarten cleaning measures.
The exclusive surface treatments PRO and TXL guarantee even better resistance to soiling, considerably reducing the level of detergents, water and energy required for maintenance.
- PRO: surface treatment utilizing the latest generation UV linked polymeric coating technology. The coating protects the surface and improves performance.
- TXL: Post vulcanization treatment that achieves a higher surface density whilst increasing surface resistance to dirt and scratches.
