Concord Precast Terrazzo can design terrazzo tiles, which can be a beautiful addition to any commercial or residential project. Terrazzo tiles work as a perfect substitute for traditional terrazzo where there may be substrate concerns.
Beautiful with epoxy, terrazzo tiles achieves many of the aesthetic qualities found in ceramic tiles or stone surfaces. Terrazzo tiles are made by embedding marble, granite, quartz or glass chips in an epoxy binder. When mixing different elements together, you can find the right design or color for your projects. This includes abstract decorative designs, official seals and floor maps just to name a few.
Once sealed properly, terrazzo tiles are impervious to water and stain damage, doesn’t chip, and can be used for either interior or exterior applications. Terrazzo is among the most durable tiling materials available, with options to re-finish and re-polish the surface in later years to make the tile look like new again.
From a construction standpoint, terrazzo tiles can be applied like traditional tiles. It’s also up to 50% lighter than other tiling materials, making it particularly valuable for multi-story installations, especially buildings with large areas and multiples stories where the weight of materials add up. In fact, terrazzo tiles is a great product for homeowners to use in kitchens and bathrooms, but can also be ideal for large office buildings and other public areas.
In addition to flooring, terrazzo tiles can make astonishing countertops, showers, baths and swimming pools. Terrazzo tiles are a cost-effective and durable alternative to ceramic and stone tiles.
Finishes and Glosses
Concord Terrazzo Tiles are available in a range of finishes designed to suit all types of consumer needs. Finishes come as polished, honed and brushed. As one might expect, the chosen finish will impact the appearance, and slip resistance of the tile. Please refer to the table below to review the gloss (appearance) and coefficient of friction (slip resistance) characteristic of the various finishes.
Regardless of the finish that is selected, Concord Terrazzo Tile provides extremely high durability by virtue of its composition. Our tiles are more resistant to abrasion than ceramic or quarry, for example, and thus will maintain its finish longer and require less maintenance.
