When design firm Spacesmith needed a concrete finish to create the feel of a downtown loft at Li & Fung's new offices in the Empire State Building they turned to Vitruv, DFB's line of Durable Applied Surfaces.
Finishes, Textures and Colors
Vitruv, a proprietary concrete veneer, is troweled on seamlessly in several layers by  DFB's craftsmen. This allows it to cover a variety of unique and curved surfaces.   

Vitruv comes in a broad selection of finishes, top coats and textures with infinite color combinations. 

By collaborating with our Studio in Long Island City you can custom design a finish that is perfect for your next project.

Durability & Elasticity
Vitruv has been tested for Scrub Resistance using ASTM D 2486 and found to require 15,000 cycles to break through to substrate and 5,000 cycles to break through for the top coat.   This compares to 280 cycles to topcoat and 720 cycles to substrate for Venetian Plaster.  

Moreover, Vitruv has a tensile strength of 1,005 psi and allows for 5% elongation.  This helps prevents the cracking which can occur as newly constructed walls settle.

Please let me know if we can have our Studio help you design a Vitruv finish for your next project.
