Recessed Cove Base: Typically used with terrazzo flooring or quarry tile. It has a 1/2” lip at the bottom of each unit that allows for the finished floor to be placed after the walls are installed. The flooring material then fills up to the 1/2” lip area leaving a sanitary transition between the flooring and walls.

Non-Recessed Cove Base: Typically used with a concrete slab and a thin type of finished flooring material, such as vinyl, epoxy, or a painted surface.

Straight Base: Typically used when a cove base is not required. Available in thicknesses of 2”, 4”, 6” or 8”.
