Building teams working on hotels and convention centers are turning to terrazzo as their choice of flooring as well as hard surface countertops and bar tops.
When choosing epoxy terrazzo flooring for high traffic areas, building owners are seeing the greatest ROI in terrazzo as their flooring choice due to its durability, ease of maintenance and visual appeal
Terrazzo floors exude a luxurious feel. The floor’s appearance will easily withstand the test of time in many hotel buildings.
Terrazzo’s strength and durability are exceptional for high traffic areas in hotel lobbies, hallways, elevator cabs, and dining areas.
Other flooring systems such as carpet and tile may have a low initial cost to install; however, they require more maintenance than a terrazzo floor. As a result, terrazzo lasts for decades with few repairs and replacement making it the most cost-effective flooring system available for the hotel industry.
Terrazzo is an original recycled flooring system.
Today recycled glass is taken directly from waste streams, cleaned and then crushed. This glass is then mixed directly into the terrazzo mix which can contribute to today’s LEED requirements.
Not only are these glass chips environmentally-friendly they can create bright and vibrant colors that are not available when using natural marble chips.
Regionally-sourced aggregates and epoxy products can contribute even greater to LEED point criteria for any project that is focusing on environmentally sustainable flooring options.
TERRAZZCO Brand Epoxy Products also have zero VOCs and absolutely no off-gassing from cured and finished terrazzo toppings making this surface the absolute best option for hotels and hospitality environments seeking healthy indoor air quality.
Terrazzo’s design flexibility allows for the floor to match seamlessly with surfaces in the reception, restaurant, and bar areas. Custom logos can add a dramatic effect in entrance and lobby areas of a high-end hotel or hospitality establishments.
Color transitions and designs can add aesthetically pleasing surfaces as well as provide navigational cues for guests throughout the building.
When working with epoxy terrazzo, the design possibilities are endless. Architects and designers have many custom options to build their terrazzo design. Terrazzo comes in virtually any color and can combine together any number of marble, glass and other decorative aggregates.
Terrazzo’s non-porous and antimicrobial surface is easily cleaned using a mild neutral cleaner that does not leave harsh and unpleasant odors that could irritate guests and staff members.
Hotel spaces require only a mop and bucket of warm water for daily routine cleaning.
Hotel cleanliness and comfort are rated as the most important factors in hotel selection. Epoxy terrazzo does not support the growth of bacteria, mold or mildew, giving more reason for guests to feel right at home when staying in hotels with terrazzo flooring.
