Vebro Polymers is delighted to announce its collaboration with the world renowned terrazzo, marble and stone specialists, Diespeker & Co.
Partnering together across the UK, the two brands are now able to provide architects, engineers and main contractors with a single-source solution for the design, supply and install of in-situ pour-applied seamless epoxy resin terrazzo flooring in commercial developments, residential buildings and other public venues.
Expanding on Vebro Polymers’ extensive portfolio of flooring products, this single-source specification package includes all of the other specialist products required to build-up the floor from substrate to finish – including underfloor heating pipework and retaining cementitious heavy-duty levelling screeds – all under a single-source supply and warranty agreement.
Long established in the design community, Diespeker & Co has built up a global reputation for expert craftsmanship and creative flair. Founded in Hamburg in 1881 before relocating to London, the company creates bespoke terrazzo tiles, worktops, stairwells, treads and other pre-cast furniture and details that have been used in stunning design schemes for clients including Apple, Folie, WeWork & Reiss.
The team at Vebro Polymers, headquartered in Knutsford, has more than 200 years’ combined industry experience in the global polymer flooring market and supplies a wide range of seamless resin-based flooring solutions, pump-applied levelling underlayments, performance enhancing screed additives and car park waterproofing and wearing systems.
Combining Vebro Polymers’ high-quality resins with Diespeker’s passion for terrazzo creates a unique opportunity for clients to design their own seamless resin terrazzo floor topping with the peace of mind of specifying quality, long-lasting materials backed by expert installation through the consortium’s approved resin applicators.
Available in a range of styles and designs from classic terrazzo, through to venetian and palladiana finishes, the system can incorporate marble, coloured glass, granite, flint and any other stone or material aggregate the client desires – all bound in Vebro’s low emission, liquid-tight, coloured or clear epoxy resin binder.
Once trowelled, the system is then expertly diamond ground and sealed with a water-based, UV-stable, polyurea seal coat to unveil a stunning kaleidoscope of colourful aggregates underfoot. For areas where additional slip-resistance is required, a clear polymer bead can be mixed into the clear resin sealer for extra traction underfoot.
Speaking of the new collaboration, John Krause, Managing Director for Diespeker & Co said, “I’m delighted to be working with Vebro Polymers and a trusted installation team to deliver pour-applied resin flooring in large spaces that shows off the beauty of terrazzo and natural stone in an impressive way”
“Combining our passion for terrazzo with Vebro resins and an expert installation crew experienced in applying large-scale terrazzo surfaces will allow us to deliver a single-source supply and apply package to architects and interior designers working on commercial projects across the UK”
“What’s more, our experienced craftsmen at Diespeker are able to produce all of the pre-cast elements needed on the design scheme – from coving, stair treads and worktops through to complimentary furniture or table-tops – virtually anything is possible with terrazzo.”
With an impressive showroom located just off South London’s Old Kent Road architects, interior designers and end-user clients alike are encouraged to visit the premises and work with Diespeker’s creative team to design their own bespoke floor topping.
Talking of the new venture, Craig Brookes, CEO for Vebro Polymers added, “The Diespeker name is known across the world for being the premium brand in terrazzo.”
“Collaborating together as a consortium to launch the Diespeker & Co from Vebro Polymers collection will allow all parties to expand operations, bringing next level terrazzo floor toppings and all other specialist products beneath and around it from one-source.” To discover more about the Diespeker & Co from Vebro Polymers collection and collaboration, visit www.vebropolymers.com/terrazzo
