Police stations set the tone of neighborhoods, meeting the demands of the community it serves.
When developing a cost-effective facility that connects law enforcement and locals, police stations can utilize epoxy terrazzo to design better spaces.
Planning, designing and constructing a police facility is a challenging task. In some communities, a new police station is built every half-century. For new construction projects and renovation of police stations, epoxy terrazzo can add many years of performance lasting the lifetime of the facility.
To address traffic patterns, epoxy terrazzo is ideal for police station lobbies and hallways. Epoxy terrazzo can withstand high levels of foot traffic daily without the need to repair or replace the surface later in the material’s lifecycle.
As a result, epoxy terrazzo is the most cost-effective flooring system for police facilities. Flooring systems like carpet and vinyl will wear and tear over the years leading to higher maintenance costs. But due to terrazzo’s impeccable performance and low maintenance costs, an epoxy terrazzo floor finish stands the test of time.
Architects can help police buildings attain LEED credit by maximizing the recycled content in terrazzo flooring or reducing the carbon footprint by selecting materials that are regionally-sourced within 500 miles of a construction project.
Epoxy terrazzo is the right flooring system when building environmentally-conscious building designs.
Originating in the 15th century when Venetian marble workers reused scrap materials to build terraces, the building material today is experiencing a rebirth mainly for its use of recycled contents.
TERRAZZCO provides a wide breadth of post-industrial recycled aggregates ranging in glass, porcelain, and concrete. TERRAZZCO’s epoxy resin products also consist of recycled components that do not emit off-gassing during the flooring life-cycle. With zero VOCs, an epoxy terrazzo floor using TERRAZZCO Brand Products is efficient in preserving recycled materials and improving the overall indoor air quality for police facilities.
Design flexibility plays a key role in designing a police facility. Police stations can incorporate epoxy terrazzo with other interiors to design inviting spaces and facilitate workflow.
