Terrazzo Tread Only. This tread design conceals the edges of the terrazzo treads. This is a more economical option as the edges of the treads don't need extra finishing. As with any of our full support designs this tread design can be set to steel or concrete substrates designed for a maximum deflection of L/360.

TREAD ONLY

Full Support

(Open Carriage)

This design features a recessed stringer to expose the edges of the treads highlighting the tread profile when viewed from the side elevation. We recommend the open carriage design be specified with finished edges, thus this design will incur a slight premium due to the extra polishing required. As with any of our full support designs this tread design can be set to steel or concrete substrates designed for a maximum deflection of L/360.

TREAD ONLY

Self Support

(Closed Carriage)

The beauty of a self-supporting tread is a sleek floating design with finished terrazzo on all exposed edges. These treads are engineered with steel reinforcement allowing them to span from stringer to stringer with no support. Tread thickness will vary based on the span between stringers and some designs may require the addition of a third-stringer. Please contact our sales consultants to review your specific stair design and specify the proper thickness and landing details. The extra finishing and engineering cause this stair design to be more expensive than its full support counterpart.

Self Support

(Open Carriage)

This design takes the self-supporting tread design to a new level and provides the ultimate floating design by exposing the tread edges. These treads are engineered with steel reinforcement allowing them to span unsupported from stringer to stringer. Tread thickness will vary based on the span between stringers and some designs may require the addition of a third-stringer. Please contact our sales consultants to review your specific stair design and specify the proper thickness and landing details.

TWO PIECE

TREAD& RISER

Full Support

(Closed Carriage)

The two tread and riser offer a more monolithic stair design. This is an economical and durable option great for schools. The two piece design allows for simple form work but will have a small seam at the bottom of the tread and top of the riser. As with all our tread designs they are customizable so we can produce these treads with an overhang on the tread to produce a different aesthetic. Tread thickness will vary based on the length of the tread we are producing. Full support treads are designed to be set on to a steel or concrete substrate. To accommodate dynamic loading the stair substrate must be designed for a maximum deflection of L/360. The stringer conceals the edges of the treads in this closed carriage design.

ONE PIECE

TREAD & RISER

Full Support

(Closed Carriage)

The one piece tread and riser is a classic terrazzo stair design. This design is produced in a true “L” shaped unit which eliminates the seam between the tread and riser. Our tread designs they are customizable so we can produce the riser with a ninety-degree angle or a slight taper to produce different aesthetics. Tread thickness will vary based on the length of the tread we are producing. Full support treads are designed to be set on to a steel or concrete substrate. To accommodate dynamic loading the stair substrate must be designed for a maximum deflection of L/360. The stringer conceals the edges of the treads in this closed carriage design.

NON SLIP

NOSING OPTIONS

These are another important component of your terrazzo stair design. The industry standard is non slip nosing using a mixture of epoxy and abrasive. These abrasive lines are embedded into the tread and sit proud of the finished surface to allow for more traction. The line thickness can be varied and the color of the epoxy can be customized.

We also offer metal inserts fabricated from zinc, stainless steel or brass. These strips are epoxied into the tread and can be provided in various gauges and spacing. The metal inserts are a premium option. Please contact our sales consultants for pricing.

 

NOSING PATTERNS

Pattern # 1 One 1/4” non-slip line

Pattern # 4 Two 1/2” non-slip lines

Line thickness can be varied and the color of epoxy can be customized. If you're interested in a patter that we currently don't we'd be very happy to customize it for you.

Pattern # 2 One 1/2” non-slip line

Pattern # 3 Two 1/4” non-slip lines

LANDINGS

The stair landing is another important element of your stair design. We can produce stair landings in panels or tiles. We recommend panels over tile to minimize grout joints and produce a more seamless appearance. Landings are available in both full and self support and like the treads will vary in thickness based on the size of the panel. Please contact your sales consultant for your specific stair design.

CLADDING,

BENCHES AND

WAINSCOT

Precast terrazzo may also be used to great a variety of other accessaries such as cladding surfaces. Precast panels are typically fabricated at 1/2" thickness and typically can be produced up to 5'x5' panel sizes. Please contact us for assistance in designing your precast terrazzo cladding elements.
