An in-situ cast terrazzo floor is hard, durable, smooth (the sparse butt joints are also smooth), beautiful and easily cleaned. They can be adapted to the setting in question in an endless variety of ways. It’s possible to influence colour and shape; the material is timeless, easy to renovate and adapt for new layouts. It’s also thin (perfect for upgrades), heavy (good in terms of the acoustic environment), and natural (free from hazardous substances). It’s non-combustible, antistatic and not vapourtight. In-situ terrazzo forms a durable and natural extension to stairs. The price is also low compared to other materials.

Cement mosaic = Terrazzo = Artistic concrete
Terrazzo is an internationally recognised term for a high-quality concrete used as a surface material. Terrazzo is a natural material that consists of aggregate (i.e. stone materials, usually marble) mixed with cement. It is poured as a compound into a form or over the floor. It is appreciated mainly for its aesthetic qualities and durability. The completed terrazzo surface is then ground so that stones and any other cast materials form a mosaic pattern.
