ARCHITECTURAL TERRAZZITE FLOOR
CHCH INTL AIRPORT

Architectural Terrazzite Floor to
International Departure Lounge - 1st Floor

 

MAIN CONTRACTOR: Hawkins

Architectural Terrazzite from Nuplex, is a resin-based terrazzo flooring product, designed to recreate the radiance and shine of polished marble floors. A synthetic, monolithic floor topping, it combines a wide spectrum of design features and colour options with long term durability for floors subject to high levels of pedestrian traffic.

Terrazzite has the appearance of insitu terrazzo without some of the disadvantages that come with terrazzo.

The system is a blend of coloured polyester resin, coloured marble aggregates and fillers which are trowelled over concrete, tile or terrazzo surfaces.

As it is applied in insitu there are no grout lines and the only joints are movement joints that exist in the substrate. The system has been proven extensively over the past 15 years in NZ malls and Australia.

Technosol has been an approved Nuplex applicator since the company was first established.

Technosol, as a sub-contractor to Hawkins for the construction of the Christchurch Airport International Terminal, was responsible for the installation of the Architectural Terrazzite Floor in the International Departure Lounge.

Technosol is justifiably proud of the Architectural Terrazzite Floor. It is still as pristine today as it was when it was first laid
