Terrazzo flooring has a long and rich history that dates back over 1500 years. The word Terrazzo originated from the Italian word for “terraces”, it was created purely by chance by Venetian marble workers. During the Fifteenth century workers discovered a new use for discarded chips from slab marble. They began setting odd size marble pieces from paying jobs in clay to surface the terraces around their own homes. The results were amazing. Throughout time, the process evolved and we now use glass, granite and quartz along with marble chips.

Commonly used in terrazzo flooring to serve two basic needs: form and function. Aesthetically, divider strips are often the skeleton to the terrazzo floor’s design, offering architects and interior designers the ability to create custom designs and patterns. Divider Strips may simply serve as a transition between colors or they may be bent on the job site or water-jet cut at the factory to form intricate designs, logo artwork and lettering. The thickness and metal of the divider strip may also be varied to compliment the flooring’s design. The divider strip can be as apparent or discrete as your design requires.
