Honed Paving – Terrazzo Veneto Honed Pavers
Terrazzo Veneto honed paving is perfect for all applications:- patios, paths and around swimming pools. Veneto honed pavers are unique in their method of manufacture, they combine a range of high quality raw materials, these are individually hydraulically pressed at 200 ton PSI before being honed to reveal the aggregate within.
Terrazzo owes its origin to the Venetian construction workers as a flooring material to surface the patios around their living quarters. Originally consisting of scrap marble chips set in clay and sealed with goat milk. Production of terrazzo became much easier after the introduction of electric industrial grinders and other power equipment in the 1920s through to method used today by Horizon, an Italian hydraulic 7 stage press capable of producing 300m2 per day..
The honed pavers are finished using an line honing machine. This allows us to provide your paving with a consistent, nonskid surface, safe for all interior and exterior areas including pool areas.
