FIRE STATIONS

Supporting the Safety of Communities

 

 

Fire stations support the needs of the fire department and its local communities.

 

One issue that arises when constructing a fire station is the overall costs.

 

By selecting epoxy terrazzo, architects can reduce the lifecycle costs for a flooring system while achieving a beautiful and low maintenance surface that stands the test of time.

Learn More on How Terrazzo Impacts Fire Stations

Strength and Durability

To match the high performance of firefighters, fires stations must consider high-performance building materials.

 

Epoxy terrazzo is known as one of the most versatile and high-performance flooring systems available today. Ideal for high traffic areas, terrazzo benefits fire staff who are always on the go.

 

Terrazzo can withstand the impact of heavy items and can wheel equipment without hassle due to its seamless finish. It is also slip-resistant preventing workplace injuries when staff is quickly responding to emergencies.

 

The strength and durability are built to last the lifetime of a fire station. Unlike tile and vinyl which require frequent repairs and replacements, epoxy terrazzo requires minimal maintenance making it the most cost-effective flooring system available.

Sustainability and Air Quality

With sustainable design trends on the rise, special attention must be given in providing safer and healthier environments for building occupants.

 

Epoxy terrazzo contains zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs). With no toxins in TERRAZZCO epoxy resins, this ensures good indoor air quality throughout fire stations.

 

For architects seeking in designing LEED-approved fire stations, epoxy terrazzo is one of the original green flooring systems. Maximize LEED points when using post-industrial recycled aggregates or sourcing materials from a terrazzo manufacturer within 500 miles of a project’s location.

Aesthetics

With fire stations occupied 24 hours a day, it is important for architects to select building materials that offer comfort for personnel.

 

One of epoxy terrazzo’s main characteristics is its design flexibility. Architects can find the appropriate colors and textures that best fit the design of a station’s lobby and administration areas, living quarters, and offices.

 

Fire stations may incorporate logos and patterns to emphasis department branding and elevate teamwork and a sense of duty on rescue missions.
