The Creative Commercial Floor Coating Mondéco Crystal
05 Mar 2015
Mondéco Crystal, part of Flowcrete’s seamless resin terrazzo Mondéco range, has been designed to provide large-scale commercial spaces with a flooring option that combines luxurious aesthetics with hard wearing and hygienic properties.
The highly decorative, solvent free, epoxy resin terrazzo floor finish incorporates recycled clear crystal and glass aggregates to create a shimmering lustre across the floor’s surface and the flexible design possibilities of the product means architects can design bespoke patterns into the floor finish.
The visually pleasing design of Flowcrete’s premium decorative flooring range significantly enhances the working environment of any building and it is perfectly suited to environments where both design and durability are of paramount concern.
Seamless resin terrazzo is renowned for delivering the ultimate in design potential, with its unlimited colour pallet able to provide a unique and tailored finish for every project. The versatility of the material means it can be precast for use on stair treads and risers as well as for wall coving. Mondéco Crystal was even used by Alexander McQueen in its Beijing store to create a curved staircase and a unique ‘floating’ display table top to present a unified, seamless look across the store.
Mondéco can be installed in a variety of complicated patterns. Precision cut forms using brass or aluminium trims are laid on the surface of the floor in a matrix that designates each area of the design. The Mondéco material is then applied into the blocks in a paint-by-numbers style and ground to reveal a smooth, colourful and glittering finished surface.
The hardwearing nature of the system means that it can retain this attractive appearance in the face of continuous and heavy foot traffic, making it ideal for commercial spaces that need to continuously present an attractive appearance despite large numbers of people and intense working conditions.
The seamless nature of the Mondéco terrazzo range makes it incredibly easy to clean and maintain, thus lending itself to highly trafficked public environments such as airports, railway terminals, shopping centres, hotels and restaurants. The seamless finish makes it easy to remove dirt and contaminants from an area and the non-porosity of seamless terrazzo also improves the indoor environmental air quality by inhibiting microbial growth. Being easy to clean also ensures that the visual impact of the floor remains at its most impressive.
Terrazo systems have a low slip potential in accordance with HSE and UKSRG guidelines. This slip resistant nature is an advantage in environments with heavy footfall as it provides public facilities and their customers with an enhanced protection against unfortunate slips, trips and falls.
The long life span of Mondéco terrazzo flooring makes it a cost effective material, as the initial outlay can be divided into many years of reliable service. When treated using the recommended simple cleaning and maintenance routine, such floors can last in excess of 30 years.
It is testament to the outstanding versatility of Flowcrete’s epoxy terrazzo flooring systems that they have been successfully installed at a number of landmark large-scale commercial developments across the world, including at Dublin Airport, Singapore’s Iluma Urban Entertainment Centre, Médiacite Liège in Belgium and the UAE’s Sharjah Megamall.
