My Avatara design floor 3.0

ter Hürne floors for your healthy living environment

We create products that you come into contact with every day. They are an important part of your home. Our floors support the sense that you and your loved ones are in good hands. A healthy living environment is important in ensuring things stay that way.

At ter Hürne, we have a responsibility towards you for a healthy living environment. As such, we take it upon ourselves to equip our floors with the best possible characteristics to offer you precisely that: a healthy living environment.


Sick building syndrome

Do you feel restless and weighed down? Do you have headaches throughout the day?

It could be a case of sick building syndrome, which happens if we spend too much time indoors. Wall coverings, furniture and the floor have a constant effect on us. What we inhale is what these products have previously exhaled. We are talking about emissions here. If products contain pollutants, these evaporate over time and are released into the indoor air. Improvements in building insulation reduce the exchange between internal and external air. The pollutants remain in the room for longer.

Do you also spend a lot of time at home?

Then look for materials that are low in emissions.

Deutschlands bekanntestes Umweltzeichen „Blauer Engel“ garantiert hohe Standards zum Schutz von Umwelt und Gesundheit. Der Blaue Engel prüft deshalb nicht nur die Nachhaltigkeit unserer Böden, sondern zertifiziert auch, dass Avatara besonders emissionsarm und wohngesund ist.

Good for low-emission living

For Avatara, we use the new intelligent material, Talcusan® instead of PVC.
It consists mainly of chalk and silicates plus a small proportion of the ecologically harmless material polypropylene.

Consequently, Avatara is free of PVC, chlorine, plasticizers and other solvents. That means: none of these substances get into your indoor air in the first place.

Talcusan® is excellent in low emissions.

Der ideale Mitbewohner für deine Familie

Avatara ist für das Leben gemacht. Durch den durchdachten Aufbau bietet unser Designboden zahlreiche Eigenschaften, die dir den Alltag sehr viel leichter machen.
Die besondere Oberflächenstruktur sorgt zum Beispiel dafür, dass allergieauslösende Stoffe wie Pollen und Milben nicht haften bleiben. Das ist bei vielen Böden anders. Auch Schmutz und Staub haben keine Chance sich festzusetzen, so dass du Avatara besonders leicht reinigen kannst.

Schöner Nebeneffekt:

Durch die hygienische, antibakterielle Oberfläche bewahrt Avatara seinen Look deutlich besser als herkömmliche Vinylböden. Hier setzt sich kein Dreck dauerhaft in die Oberflächenstruktur fest und sorgt für unschöne Effekte.

Auch mit kleinen Kindern gibt Avatara allen Mitbewohnern ein gutes Gefühl. Denn unser Boden ist speichelsicher und gibt garantiert keine schädlichen Stoffe in die Raumluft ab.

Blue Angel

Blue Angel provides guidance to everyone who shops consciously and who wants to be sure the products they buy are durable, energy-efficient and healthy.
Chancellor Angela Merkel

Blue Angel has been the German government's environmental label for more than 40 years. It guarantees "high standards for the protection of our environment and health – independently and credibly," says Svenja Schulze. She was appointed Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety on 14 March 2018. Starting from the selected material through to the finished product: Blue Angel continually checks our floors throughout their entire life cycle.

That’s good for you. Good for the environment.


eco-INTITUT was established as an independent, private enterprise in the 1980s. It is one of the most experienced German laboratories in the analysis of indoor air
for pollutants. We spend up to 90% of our lives in enclosed rooms. The quality of the air in the room determines our well-being and our health.

eco-INSTITUT tests our floors

  • for the entire manufacturing process
  • for the ingredients we use
  • for harmful ingredients such as plasticizers, heavy metals and pesticides
  • for toxic gases that escape
  • for smells

The eco-label certifies products that are low in emissions. For better indoor air in your room.


VOC stands for volatile organic compound. Our homes and interiors are better insulated than they used to be. This means that substances that are in materials and evaporate remain in the indoor air for longer. Some of these substances have been proved to be harmful for our health.

Originating in France, the A+ to C label serves as an indication for the emissions of building products and interior furnishing materials.

The A+ label gives you and us a secure sense of healthy indoor air.


CE stands for Conformité Européenne (European Conformity). With the CE mark, we declare that our products conform to all applicable EU regulations. The EU regulations comprise fire behaviour, formaldehyde emissions, VOC emissions and the presence of PCP and sustainability.
