Product Q+A: norament 925 by nora

Sept. 10, 2009

NAME
norament® 925 grano

BIRTHPLACE
An ISO 14001- and 9002-certified facility in Weinheim, Germany

PARENTS
I am the product of Mother Nature and Father Time, inspired by the work of imaginative designers and delivered by an environmentally responsible team of professionals at nora systems Inc.

SIBLINGS
I come from a very large family. I have eight brothers and seven sisters. My brothers take after my dad’s side of the family—the noraments; my sisters are more like mom’s side—the noraplans. Even so, we all mix and match very well, despite any differences in appearance or temperament.

GENETIC MAKEUP
Although we do have a certain air of sophistication about us, we prefer to highlight the green nature that courses through every fiber of our being. Natural and recycled rubber is what sustains us and our environment.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF?
In a phrase and at the risk of conceit, I’d have to say I’m stunning and low-maintenance.  Passersby will always take note of my polished look and wrongly assume that I require hours of attention. Since I require no waxing or sealing, my upkeep could not be easier.

PROUDEST MOMENT?
When I realized that by simply listening to those I work with—understanding their needs and helping them bring their visions to life—that I had so much more to give. I know that I can go just about anywhere, meet the challenges before me and comfortably blend into my surroundings, and that just makes me feel good!

DO YOU HAVE A MOTTO?
It’s all about you.

ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT
I’m proud to say the environmental footprint of our family is relatively petite. Our sustainable materials come from rapidly renewable rubber, contain no PVC, are GREENGUARD-certified and follow eco-friendly manufacturing processes.

WHAT MAKES YOU SPECIAL?
I’d have to say it’s my unlikely toughness. I mean ... to look at me you’d probably think, “Oh what a beautiful, delicate flower that one is.” To the contrary; when people tread on me, they quickly learn that I can stand up to any challenge—with style.
