T.B. Penick's Terrazzo system
As old as ancient Rome, Terrazzo was first used over 1,500 years ago by Roman artisans when they began mixing marble scraps with cement to create beautiful flooring designs for public spaces such as lobbies & plazas and also the courtyards and villas of their patrons.
With the same inherent natural beauty and versatility that so intrigued the Romans, T.B. Penick's Terrazzo System offers designs, patterns and colors in an infinite array of artistic statements!
Our Terrazzo System (consisting of marble, quartz, glass, shells, or other suitable chips) can be installed in any thickness in either Epoxy or Cement. The decorative potential and artistry of TBP’s Terrazzo system can also be enhanced by utilizing zinc, brass, or bronze to create intricate logos and emblems that can add detail and complexity to any design.
T.B. Penick’s Terrazzo system is also great for new or renovation projects & is a solution to common elevation issues.
Both cement based and thin set epoxy terrazzo systems are comprised of zero VOC materials. Terrazzo can provide facilities with a durable, odorless, zero-VOC producing naturally chemical and bacteria resistant hard surface system that requires no harsh chemicals to maintain. It contains no chlorinated compounds and no known teratogens or carcinogens.
In addition, the Terrazzo System has the lowest flooring cost life cycle compared to vinyl, carpet, or tile!
Overall, on typical projects, terrazzo can realistically contribute to five LEED credits. MR cr4(2), MRcr5 (2), EQcr4.1(1). On a case by case scenario, terrazzo may also be able to contribute to MRcr1.3(1) and in extreme cased ID cr1(1) and MRcr2(1) for a total of 8 pts.
T.B. Penick’s Terrazzo can be poured onto many different floor materials such as:
A perfect accent for commercial, industrial, recreational, institutional, transportation, and residential projects.
