Terrazzo Wash Fountains are so named because they use a precast bowl assemble made from a material called Terrazzo. Terrazzo has a mosaic looking surface and is comprised of 85% stone and 15% binder.  Steel reinforcing rods are placed in the bowl during the casting process to give the bowl additional strength. After being cast the Terrazzo is polished to a high gloss and then sealed with a clear polyurethane resin to maintain its beauty.  Terrazzo is available in four beautiful nature colors including dusty rose, granite, whisper gray, and white marmorite.

 

Terrazzo is a wonderful material for wash fountains. Terrazzo Wash Fountains are medium cost fountains and Terrazzo is one of the most vandal resistance materials used because of its heavy weight and durability. Although Terrazzo is very attractive, it is not ADA compliant.  And because the stone/binder material is sealed with a polyurethane resin, abrasive cleaners should not be used.  If the resin finish is damaged by abrasive cleaners or caustic cleaners it will have to be repaired and resealed.

 

Terrazzo Wash Fountains can be designed for a multitude of hand washing applications. Deep bowl classic wash fountains are designed for more intensive washing of hands and arms. This design is appropriate for users who require moderate to heavy duty hand washing.  This bowl design is not appropriate for users who desire to save water or energy. Nor is it appropriate for meeting ADA requirements. It is most appropriate for manufacturing facilities, repair facilities, stadiums, and other locations that require heavy duty hand washing.

 

Terrazzo Wash Fountains frequently combine the Terrazzo bowl with multi-fount faucets.  These multi-founts are designed for ADA compliance and water conservation.  In general, they are a very attractive option for applications requiring light to moderate duty hand washing and ADA compliance. Common applications would include schools, building lobbies, rest areas, sports and athletic facilities, and light manufacturing or warehousing facilities.  Multi-founts are not appropriate for heavy duty hand washing because the water flow rate is limited.

 

The cleaning and maintenance of Terrazzo Wash Fountains should follow simple guidelines.  The key is to clean the Terrazzo bowl with standard detergents, warm water and soft cloths.  Harsh cleaners with acid or alkaline solutions, such as floor strippers or drain cleaners should not be used on or poured down Terrazzo bowls. These harsh cleaners will damage the clear polyurethane resin used to seal the bowl.  If these cleaners are inadvertently used on a Terrazzo bowl then the bowl should be rinsed immediately with water and inspected for damage.  A hazing appearance is an indication that a harsh cleaner has been used on the bowl.  Sometimes exposure to UV radiation will create the same hazing appearance.  Repairing the Terrazzo bowl is relatively simple process. A paint stripper should be used to remove the existing polyurethane resin.  Any stains or minor damage to the bowl can be removed with a light grit sandpaper. The bowl should be cleaned and dried thoroughly before two to three new coats of clear polyurethane resin are applied. Then allow the resin to dry.  The manufacturer does have simple repair kits available for sale.
