Terrazzo Flooring


Product short description

In 15th century Venice, quarry workers invented terrazzo to use up oddly shaped pieces of marble waste. Now with 21st-century designs we are keeping this material's resourceful spirit alive.

Terrazzo flooring is highly durablelow-maintenanceaesthetically pleasing and sustainable.

The following characteristics make Terrazzo by GastHome the ideal flooring option:

  • Durability: Terrazzo’s impeccable durability and strength are ideal for high traffic areas such as lobbies, hallways and eating areas. While the initial cost for other flooring systems might appear more affordable, they require more maintenance than terrazzo flooring. Other flooring systems such as carpet or vinyl tiles have to be replaced frequently, especially in high traffic areas, while terrazzo stands the test of time and typically lasts the lifetime of the building.
  • Low Maintenance: Since hotels and restaurants manipulate large amounts of food and beverages and often experience high numbers of visitors, it is a difficult task to keep the floor space consistently clean. Seamless terrazzo flooring allows for easy cleaning and sanitizing, and day-to-day maintenance only requires using a mop and a bucket of warm water. Terrazzo Resin Systems also helps to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus, reducing the transfer of germs and food waste.
  • Aesthetics: Terrazzo offers unlimited possibilities by allowing any imaginable combination of colors, patterns, logos and pictures. This allows designers and architects to create original designs that incorporate branding and a wide range of colors into the floor. Our special formulation does not allow for colors to fade or wear thin.
  • Sustainability: Terrazzo has long been a recycled product and was created centuries ago by Venetian workers who used waste chips from slab marble processing. The following aspects make Terrazzo by GastHome a sustainable flooring choice:
    • Use of recycled content for aggregates
    • Use of local/regional materials
    • High durability, lasting the lifetime of buildings
    • Does not emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
