1. Create Interesting Divided Floor Layouts
Complex patterns, logos, and custom designs can all be precisely placed into your cement or epoxy coating installations with the help of terrazzo floor strips. Mix and match colors or go intricate with your layouts. These thin strip of metal divide up your space into smaller, workable areas.
2. Add Aluminum, Brass, Or Zinc Accents
In addition to being functional, floor divider strips are attractive. You can accent your design with a variety of metals to match the aesthetic of the project you are working on.
Aluminum divider strips are used mainly with epoxy coatings, while cement terrazzo designs use zinc. Brass is a high-end option that can be used with both epoxy and cement.
What Is The Difference Between Cement & Epoxy Terrazzo?

3. Prevent Cracks In Concrete & Terrazzo Flooring
Like with most building materials, natural changes in temperature can cause concrete and terrazzo materials to expand and contract, eventually leading to unattractive cracks. Divider strips can be used intentionally to create rectangular areas or divide floors into smaller sections that can move with these temperature changes, reducing surface cracking.
4. Make Room For Joint Expansion
In larger, multi-story buildings with big areas of concrete slab, you have to leave room for expansion joints. These intentional spaces between cement slabs don’t have to be an eyesore. You can demarcate the joint area with terrazzo strips and fill in the space.
5. Create Smoother Flooring Transitions
Odds are, your home or business will feature a range of flooring types, from laminate to epoxy to carpet to wood. Divider strips make the transition from cement to carpet or from tile to epoxy easy to see without breaking up the cohesive look of your interior design.
Common Commercial Terrazzo Strip Applications
From intricate logos to visual cues that guide staff and visitors through a warehouse or airport terminal, terrazzo flooring strips can be used in almost any industry.
