Vitruv is a decorative, hand applied, concrete finish. With a variety of textures to choose from, Vitruv will add style to any space. Whether it be a touch of elegance, a rustic setting, or an industrial feel, Vitruv has been specified in various environments, and applied by our skilled artisans.

Vitruv is a proprietary concrete finish that is highly durable and easy to maintain. Because it is troweled on by hand, Vitruv forms easily around curves and irregular surfaces. It can create the look of metal, wood, or stone without the corresponding problems like weight, shifting, and cracking. Vitruv is extremely impact resistant, with a much longer lifespan than that of other wallcoverings. Vitruv is ideal for high traffic commercial, residential, and retail spaces.

Vitruv’s durability reduces the need for frequent maintenance and repairs. Vitruv is very flexible and prevents chipping and cracking (ASTM C-836). Only after 15,000 rub cycles is the substrate exposed, making Vitruv one of the most durable products on the market. DFB has submitted our Durable Applied Surfaces to the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Sustainable Research Center. RIT has evaluated our Durable Applied Surfaces for Green Building Products specified in projects applying for LEED Certification.

CLEANING: For non-caustic cleaning use mild liquid non-abrasive soap (Dove, Ivory) diluted 75% with water.
