Satin-finish poured floor
Liquid Elements satin finish:
* Poured fl oor with topcoat
* Hard wearing, UV resistant
* No waxing required
Liquid Elements poured floor is available in a satin finish with Stonseal SK6-SF, a topcoat
that can be installed over its Smooth, Glitz, Reflect, and Capture flooring systems to produce an attractive finish. Stonseal SK6-SF is a high-performance, aliphatic polyurethane/
polyuria product that combines with a durable polymer microsphere that downglosses
the coating in order to provide a satin finish. Floors are said to be easy to clean, provide
excellent wear, are UV resistant, and require no waxing.

AdMix resilient tile provides a terrazzo-like
visual in a homogeneous tile available in 36and 12-in. squares. With a range of neutral
colors, the tiles are made with as much as
10.4% pre-consumer recycled content and reportedly emit lower VOCs than linoleum and
rubber. The flooring allows scratches,
scuffs, and stains to be buffed.
Seams can be welded, creating
a water-resistant surface.

Impasto + Secco tile and broadloom is
part of the Artisan Collection. Inspired
by the practices of painting, the products
create artwork for the floor through abstract blocks, fine lines, and deliberate
splashes of color. Each style is available
in ten colors. Impasto uses thick color
strokes and light splashes of contrast.
Secco is a smaller-scale companion,
emulating pigments applied to dry
plaster walls in the mid-16th century. Both are Cradle-to-Cradle
Glass guardrail system
The GRS Taper-Loc laminated-glass guardrail
system has an ICC-ES Evaluation Report for
the base shoe system. A report is issued
only for products that successfully complete
ICC-ES's evaluation process. The dry-glaze
system is said to reduce installation time and
simplifies glass adjustment or replacement.
The base shoe has a multiple hollow design,
making it lighter than standard base shoes.
