Reflect Your Environment

Sassoitalia® uses natural aggregates to create beautiful landscaping quickly and economically.

Aggregates such as marble, limestone, washed pebbles and crushed stone can be used alone or in combination to design a unique and personal vision.

Giving Sassoitalia® its iconic natural look, the aggregates can be sourced locally to reflect the environment or using Italian aggregates specially selected by Ideal Work.

FAQs about Sassoitalia

+Is it necessary to respect control joints with Sassoitalia®?

Sassoitalia® requires joints if, and only if, the substrate to which it is being applied has control joints. These must be respected and mirrored when laying Sassoitalia® to prevent any movement along those joints in the substrate causing transfer cracking.

+Can I lay a Sassoitalia® floor near sea water or in a where there are significant freeze/thaw cycles?

In seaside environments, or in areas with cold climates subject to freeze/thaw cycles, it is possible to apply a special sealant to the surface that makes it water repellent and therefore resistant to extreme agents.

+Can I choose pebbles or grits of any size?

The aggregate size options vary from 5 mm to 20 mm, both round and split. It is essential that the aggregates are of high quality and have excellent resistance to compression. Marble aggregates are perfect for Sassoitalia® applications.

+Is it possible to use Sassoitalia® vertically or on stairs?

Special application techniques allow Sassoitalia® to be installed on vertical surfaces and stairs. We or your professional installer will be able to advise you on your particular project.

+What maintenance does Sassoitalia® require?

Sassoitalia® can be kept clean simply by sweeping and washing the surfaces. It is recommended to wash the floor periodically with water and a Ph neutral (not acidic) detergent.

+What thickness does Sassoitalia® have to be?

Sassoitalia® is a 3cm decorative layer over a concrete or suitable screed sub-base. The thickness of the substrate will depend on the traffic. As a guide only, the thicknesses of the concrete or screed required are as follows: 6-8 cm, pedestrian only areas, 8-12 cm, light vehicle traffic areas (cars), 13-20 cm, medium-to-heavy vehicular traffic (cars-lorries).

+Can personalised decorations be inserted in Sassoitalia® flooring?

Certainly, by adapting the joints and using different colours of aggregates and Ideal Work Colourmix, it is possible to create decorations of many types. An example can be seen here.
