THINNER TILES FOR FLEXIBILITY IN TILE INSTALLATION PROJECTS

Hey. Here' s a description of a new tile product that seems kind of cool. I've attached the link to the site you'd need to register on to attend this meeting where the product is explained. I have no affiliation with this company or "meeting", but it came by my desk and thought it'd be helpful to tile installers and companies looking for innovative ideas in their industry. IF you attend, can you share what you learned with this community? We'd really appreciate it!

Thanks. Diana



THINNER TILES FOR INSTALLATION?


Thin Tile’ describes a class of tiles that are designed to be much thinner than traditional tiles and much larger in length and width.  Thin tiles are typically either 1/8” or ¼” thick (traditional tiles start at 3/8” on up) and are available in sizes up to 5’x10’.  This makes the tiles lighter in weight and even somewhat flexible.  When these tiles first began appearing in the US market a few years ago, there was a great deal of apprehension about how and where they were to be installed.  Largely through the use of the Universal Floor Tester and the C627 test, systems of installation products and methods of application were developed that have allowed these tiles to be installed with a minimum of issues.  NTCA has also published guidelines for floor installations with thin tiles in conjunction with other industry groups.  This webinar will look at the tiles themselves, best practices for installing them, and discuss where (and where not) to use them.  It will also look into current efforts to develop standards both here and abroad.
