Prioritizing Healthy Interiors
Healthy interiors protect everyone who steps into a space. Indoor air pollutants can cause all kinds of short-term inconveniences like coughing, headaches, or sneezing. However, the long-term consequences are far worse, with poor indoor air quality leading to germ spread and the increased potential for both minor and major illnesses.
The right floor helps to keep moisture and debris out, and the occupants of your spaces safe to breathe in clean and healthy air. Modular ONE "Made in Germany" meets the highest standards of sustainable living, achieving a FloorScore certification which signifies the highest standard for indoor air quality. Designed to support the highest indoor air quality for the entirety of its lifecycle, each Modular ONE design collection contributes to biophilic design and natural pattern incorporation by closely mimicking naturally occurring materials.
With Parador Modular ONE, you can step with confidence in the durability, quality, and sustainability of the floor beneath you. Made to exceed expectations for environmental ethics, Parador Modular ONE is a decision you can be proud of.
