BARiT designer floors

Ageless aesthetics and manifold designs and grainings plead for BARiT Terrazzo coatings to fit out any impressive objects Terrazzo coatings of high quality unite the features of no joints and high mechanical and chemical resistance to loads.

Derived from an industrial design, BARiT developed the LOFTFLOOR. It displays an urban, purist concrete look due to its high-quality design. Typical loft-style fillings with shading, textures as well as iridescent effects determine its unique design.

 

The LOFTFLOOR is innovative because it highlights a noble concrete look and at the same time provides the user with all the qualitative advantages of a durable industrial floor.

Quick Info

  • crack-bridging
  • seamless
  • non-slip matte finish in accordance with BGR 181 R 9
  • mechanical and chemical resistant
  • declared according to DGNB and LEED
  • low abrasion
  • fire protection class Cfl-s1
  • easy to clean and disinfect

Optics

LOFTFLOOR can be installed with a matte or satin finish. Qualitative benefits such as high-quality color stability characterize LOFTFLOOR as a designer floor. A matte surface with slip-resistance class R 9 provides for sure-footed walking.

The color palette is based on the BARiT color chart for the current concrete look.

Properties

LOFTFLOOR is based on a two-component, low-emission, solvent-free, polyurethane resin. Excelling in factors for "Building green" this surface coating has achieved 7.5 out of a possible 10 points for LEED and DGNB in environmental quality.
Abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, high resistance to light and UV stability as well as the high elasticity of this coating are all functional requirements that LOFTFLOOR meets. The elasticity of the coating provides good dampening properties that also makes standing and walking on this surface extremely comfortable.
It can be installed on top of calcium-sulfate based false and subflooring, cement as well as anhydrite flooring, and especially on heated flooring. The coating is installed in a layer 2 - 3 mm thickness. LOFTFLOOR has a high chemical resistance against salts, urine, cooking oils and food acids. The dense surface is water-repellent, dirt resistant and can be easily cleaned.
