Ecologically valuable and with cool extras

Coesfeld, August 2012 – A children's room floor must be able to withstand a lot, as it is the biggest playground in the world.

This is a place to play, experiment, run riot, tussle and sometimes it is also used to rest. The “Eco Balance Play!” laminate floors from Parador not only impress with their quality and child-friendly design, but also with outstanding ecological properties. And with an additional plus: For every pack sold during the introduction period, Parador is donating one Euro to the environmental foundation “Plant-for-the-Planet”, which was founded in 2007 by Felix Finkbeiner, who was 9 years old at the time, and brings children together from all over the world to plant trees for climate protection.

“Eco Balance Play!” comprises five laminate floors. Very much in keeping with the times, for example, is the laminate decor “Tweet”, whose pattern is made up of many pieces of reclaimed timber, which are partly decorated with amusing icons. When installed, the floor looks like it is put together from many different pieces of wood in jigsaw style and creates great depth in the room due to its endless effect. What is more, “Tweet” holds a surprise: the floor has a QR code printed on it. When you scan this with a mobile phone, you are automatically taken to a special Eco Balance website, on which Parador, in collaboration with the Munich company, BookRix, provides e-books to download free of charge. Girls and boys of all ages can download exciting tales and stories here.

The Eco Balance Play! range also includes four authentic imitations of wood in lively colours.


Photo competition: win a dream holiday in the tree hotel

Up until 30 November 2012 it is possible to take part in a great prize competition by Parador. Simply invite a few friends or the family to play creatively on the floor, take a photo of it and send this to Parador. And with a bit of luck win a dream holiday for the whole family in the Tree House Hotel on the Kulturinsel [culture island] Einsiedel.

The new Eco Balance Play! laminate floors are available in the formats 1285 x 194 x 7 mm and in the wider version of 1285 x 243 x 7 mm in block or wide plank style. They are antistatic, abrasion-resistant, low on emissions and easy to install due to patented click technology. 

For all Eco Balance laminate floors, Parador uses raw materials from domestic, sustainable forestry, which are free of organic solvents and thus ensure a pleasant indoor climate. Only eco-friendly resins are used as binding agents. 

The decor is printed on certified paper using watercolours with no heavy metal content. They are completely recyclable in terms of energy and material. The leftover wood accruing from the manufacture of the laminate flooring is fed back to the production cycle.
