Today, the two primary flooring products used in educational facilities are either cost-effective vinyl (VCT) or expensive terrazzo. VCT being so inexpensive leads to a less durable floor resulting in an easily damaged surface that reflects cracks from the concrete floor. Terrazzo on the other hand is an extremely hard surface but due to its nature, repairs are virtually impossible without visual evidence of any imperfections.
The various resinous flooring systems that we offer compete with the costs of VCT and the durability of a custom terrazzo floor. In addition, our flooring systems are fluid-applied and cast in place at the jobsite, as well as completely seamless with no grout lines to harbor bacteria. They are also anti-microbial, easy to maintain and stain and abrasion resistant. Can withstand abuse from heavy foot and even vehicular traffic. Although some of the projects featured appear to be high-gloss and perhaps slippery, we have the ability to achieve coefficient of friction (COF) to meet or exceed ADA Flat Surfaces, ADA Inclined Surfaces, OSHA and NFPA requirements. Finish options include high-gloss, satin or matte.
