When considering a terrazzo system for a commercial building, it is recommended to select a seamless thin-set epoxy terrazzo floor over terrazzo tile.
When considering lifetime performance, its hard to find a flooring system that outlasts epoxy terrazzo. Ideal for high traffic areas, epoxy terrazzo is quick to install, and once completed, can last over 100 years with proper care. With minimal repairs and no replacements, an epoxy terrazzo provides a great return on investment for building owners seeking a long-lasting flooring system.
One of the great characteristics of epoxy terrazzo is its design flexibility. It allows architects and designers to create a customizable floor design with a wide range of color and aggregate options. It is truly limited to your imagination.
Grout joints in tile are commonplace for bacteria and dirt to hide, and can lead to higher maintenance costs than a seamless terrazzo system (epoxy terrazzo does not support the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew.) In addition, epoxy terrazzo has better wear and impact resistance than tile, as tile is more susceptible to brittleness and cracking, thus raising the owner’s cost to repair or replace the tile in the building if damages occur.
