Union Tile established 99 years ago in the manufacture of Terrazzo products offers many wonderful Terrazzo products. One of them being our Screedcrete which is an In situ seamless floor available in various colours. This offers a beautiful hard-wearing floor finish and is extremely popular overseas and is making its mark here locally too!
These mixes are available in 2 x finishes:-
- Smooth polished finish, ideal for internal high foot traffic areas, and
- Exposed aggregate non-slip finish, for external application.
In situ Terrazzo is suitable for shopping malls, airports, universities, schools, hospitals, hotels, commercial and residential applications, external walkways and pool surrounds, amongst others.
The durability of the floor stems from the hard-wearing natural stone incorporated in the mix, which takes decades of high foot traffic showing minimal wear. In fact, the foot traffic polishes the surface stone over time.
The in situ mixes are supplied in 40 kg bags and can be made up in various colours (12 standard colours). Special colours can be made to order and with added aggregates, coloured glass, mirror, etc. if clients require a custom-designed look. The thickness of the application can vary from 12 to 30mm applied in panels with dividing aluminium, brass or perspex strips. The in situ mixtures are mixed, applied and polished on site.
This seamless look application offers huge scope for new floor designs and patterns that you may wish to achieve. Different patterns can be created by using formable aluminium strips and then filling the inside panels with the Terrazzo mixes in different colours, to create unique designs and can also be used to create various emblems and logos on floors. Alternatively, sticking to just one colour provides a beautifully flawless, flowing floor finish.
In situ can also be used for other applications, e.g. Outdoor fire pits and built-in braai areas.
Union Tiles also supply all the grinding and polishing machines and accessories required for the installation of In situ.
