Reference Library : Videos : Top 5 Tips for Thin Tile Installation
Large, thin tile can be used in many applications where traditional tiles can't. However, these tiles present unique and new installation challenges. Get CUSTOM's tips for a simple, successful and durable thin tile installation.
Thin tiles have become very popular. Architects & designers appreciate the distinct, modern look, the great variety available and especially how their low profile makes tiling over existing tile such a time-saving option.
So, what is thin tile and what are its standards for performance? The Tile Council of North America recognized “reduced thickness porcelain tiles” beginning in its 2013 Handbook. They are nominally 3 to 5.5 mm thick and up to 5 by 10 feet in size.
Since these tiles do not comply with existing ANSI Standards for tile, the industry is developing a new standard to address their unique characteristics and new methods of installation.
Consider these five important tips for installing large thin tiles:
Tip #1: Carefully plan your project details from beginning to end.
Tip #2: Choose the correct surface preparation
Tip #3: Choose an appropriate premium quality mortar.
Tip #4: The way you spread your mortar and bed the tiles can mean the difference between success and failure.
Tip #5: Understand the unique challenges of grouting these tiles.
