The Pros and Cons of Broadcast and Troweled Flooring Systems from T.W. Hicks, Inc. in Denton and San Antonio!

With each project come various solutions and systems to achieve the desired result. There are some projects and sites that require chemical resistant floors and others that call for seamless epoxy bacteria resistant floors or a list of other solutions. Either way, our team at T.W. Hicks, Inc. installs the highest quality industrial floors with the best, custom-specific installation process. Two common installation approaches include broadcast and troweled.

When the job calls for resinous quartz flooring, you can go with a broadcast flooring system or a troweled flooring system. Whether you choose to broadcast the quartz onto a floor coated with wet epoxy or pre-mix the epoxy and quartz to then trowel it on, both processes have their pros and their cons. However, the only thing that matters is both produce a seamless, durable industrial floor that will be both practical and utilitarian.

By nature, the broadcast system will be a bit more textured while the troweled system will be a bit smoother. Yet both systems will have similar aesthetics with a blend of contrasting colors and a dominant highlight colors. Troweled flooring systems tend to have a better look and feel and are more durable than a broadcast flooring system. On the flipside, a troweled flooring system is more expensive than a broadcast flooring system.

Resinous quartz flooring, whether applied by broadcast or trowel, are durable surfaces designed to be used in research labs, manufacturing plants, locker rooms, kitchens, healthcare facilities and more. They’re resistant to chemicals, stains, mold or fungus and withstand high traffic and heavy loading with varying degrees of skid resistance. Our professionals at T.W. Hicks, Inc. in Denton and San Antonio would love to talk with you further about which industrial flooring system would be best for your specific project!
