Raimondi Leveling System Spacers 1000 pc

1000 Leveling Spacer Clips (non-reusable)

5/32" Joint Size (4mm)

1/8" to 1/2" Tile Thickness

Accurate tile setting requires perfect leveling of the tiles.
Often it is hard to properly set ungauged and thin tiles as well as larger format thicker tiles because of uneven floor foundations.

As a result, tiles that seem perfectly level during the installation, after the thinset or adhesive cures, they often show a variance in height and can com promise the aesthetics.

This can be avoided, thanks to the new Raimondi Leveling Spacers, which will preserve the perfect leveling of the tiles, and will also speed up the installation.

As an end result, you can quickly achieve a smooth level surface using the new R-L-S system.
Minimum required joint: 3/32". Tile thickness: minimum 1/8", maximum 1/2".
Both the setting and removal of the leveling spacers are quick and easy.

How to Use

How to set the support:
1. After having spread the adhesive, insert the support underneath the tiles and along the 4 sides.
2. According with tiles size, set one or more supports on every side of the tile.
3. Set the tile and beat in with a rubber mallet.

How to insert the wedge:
1. Insert the wedge in the support slot carefully not to pass the breaking point.
2. To facilitate this operation, the use of the special traction-adjustable-pliers is recommended.

How to remove the support:
Once the adhesive is set, the protruding part of the support has to be removed by separating it from base. This can be done thanks to the traction-adjustable-pliers, with a rubber mallet or even with feet. Beat parallel to the joint.

Tuscan Tile Leveling System Re usable Caps

Re-usable Caps

2-piece system that virtually eliminates lippage tile installation.

Very easy to learn and use at any skill level

FEATURES:

  • Reduce installer fatigue/stress.
  • Virtually lippage free, flat surface drastically
  • Reduces the need for grinding and polishing.
  • Prevents tiles from moving while curing.
  • Re-usable caps.

Important

Straps should be soaked in room temperature (or lukewarm) water for 2 hours or 30 minutes in hot water prior to use. Soaking is one time only regardless of how long the straps are on hand. This increases the straps elastic strength, thus giving the straps maximum tension needed for proper installation.

The Tuscan Leveling System is an innovative new two-piece, cap & strap, installation system that is revolutionizing the way the world installs large format porcelain and stone tiles. This innovative new system is designed to be used with tiles of uniform thickness (gauged tile). The Tuscan Leveling System will save the installer time and money. With the Tuscan Leveling System, installers are able to set, align, level and space, thus reducing the need to re-lift tile and add more setting material to ensure alignment. In addition, by virtually eliminating lippage, this will reduce costly call backs and save the installers reputation, which is priceless.

The Tuscan Leveling System is an innovative product that will greatly assist most anyone in, the installation of stone and ceramic tiles. It is designed to create a virtual lippage free installation with stone and tiles.
The system interlocks the tiles, virtually creating a single flat slab surface while the setting material is curing. The interlocking design of the system reduces and in most cases eliminates settling from shrinkage, as well as minimizing the possibility of warping.
The system reduces the need to re-lift tiles to add more mud and/or the process of shimming tiles; thus greatly increasing the speed of installation, all the while creating that much desired lippage free mirror surface. In addition, the caps are reusable dozens of times.

MLT Leveling System Start up Kit

MLT Leveling System Start up Kit

$499.00

MLT Leveling System Start up Kit

Kit Include

100 Caps, 125 Straps, 250 Porcelain Bases and 1 Ergonomic Removal Tool

A. The MLT cap is designed and engineered to be disengaged under tension to allow cleaning of grout joints and seams, or to reposition the tiles/slabs just with a slight side pressure. This is extremely important for the installation of reduce thickness materials.

B. The side ???wings??? create a constant pressure to guarantee the perfect alignment and plane during the curing of the setting material.

C. The slot on the top of the cap will accept a Stainless Steel Tongue Insert in cases where the ratcheting teeth may become worn. These inserts will greatly prolong the working life of each cap.

MLT Leveling Systems introduces the industry???s latest technology in Mechanical Lippage Tuning. Consisting of three major components (Reusable Cap, Reusable Strap, and Base Plate), this system achieves the least amount of waste possible. With four different Base Plates to choose depending on the type of material, in addition to Cap accessories, such as the rubber foot for soft stone it allows the MLT Professional Lippage Tuning System to be tailored to each specific job.

Features:

  • Base Plates for Porcelain, Thin Tile, Porcelain, and Stone with even offset joints.
  • Caps can be used over 100 times and it also comes with a metal Long Life Kit so you can just pop these out if they wear after hundreds of uses. Reusable straps can be used multiple times, lowering overall expense
  • No need to pre-soak Base Plates
  • Rubber Feet and Steel Tongue Inserts for Caps avoid scratching and extend Cap life
  • Counter sink holes in Base Plates aid in fastening for ceiling applications
  • Base Plate design allows for maximum thinset coverage without hollow spots

The MLT lippage control system has one of the lowest "ongoing" cost components as the strap and cap is re-usable over and over its amazing quality. The straps are made with stainless steel so the thinset just falls off when it's dry. There is absolutely no waste material when used and when you clamp the two surfaces together, they meet smooth and perfectly flush each time.

MLT Leveling System Installation

1 Pre-soaking of system components in water is not required, for installation use.

2 Pre-assemble reusable connecting tab and base plate:

  • Push stainless steel portion of the re-usable connecting tab through the center opening of the selected base plate.
  • Align protuberances by passing them completely through the slotted openings of the stainless steel connecting tab.
  • Pull connecting tab until the "snap lock" engages.
  • Base plate should remain affixed to re-usable connecting tab unless separation is desired. To separate, simply reverse the snap lock procedure.

3. Insert pre-assembled re-usable connecting tab and base plate under the tile or stone edge, sliding the connecting tab's base plate under the tile or stone being installed, at approximately 3??? from the corners (MLTSystem components may be used for the corners of an offset pattern, in the ???T??? intersection of porcelains having a minimum thickness of 3/8???).

4. Spacing of each re-usable connecting tab should not exceed 20??? to 24??? apart, during installation. Additional insertion of MLTSystem components may be used for increased lippage control.

5. When inserting the base plate under the side of the tile or stone, do not place them under a four-corner junction as lippage may result. Placement of base plates in a four-corner junction will also greatly increase the difficulty to produce a straight grout joint line. Once the preassembled re-usable connecting tab and base plate is in place, proceed using standard installation procedures.

6. Upon completing the "set" of the tile or stone, lower the tension locking cap over the re-usable connecting tab to tile or stone surface then, slide cap in direction of the grout joint to engage the lock.

7. Place installation/removal tool atop the tension locking cap to engage the re-usable connecting tab and tension MLT Leveling System, to create a lippage free surface.

8. If additional cleaning of grout joint line is required after MLT Leveling System has been tensioned: remove cap, clean joint line, re-engage cap and re-tension.

9. To remove the re-usable components of MLTSystem for following installations and to accommodate the grout procedure, always use the installation/removal tool.

  • Set tension setting dial on ???S??? for ???Snap???
  • Place installation/removal tool atop re-usable cap and engage the re-usable connecting tab.
  • Squeeze tool trigger firmly to release reusable connecting tab from grout joint line.

If an occasional stubborn strap is encountered and seems unable to release:

  • Disengage and remove, re-usable tension locking cap.
  • Set installation/removal tool to 1 or 2, on the setting dial.
  • Place tool atop re-usable connecting tab and engage.
  • With tool engaged, move tool back and forth in direction of the joint line, towards the installed surface.

10. Collect and store all re-usable connecting tabs and re-usable tension locking caps, for future use. Cold Weather

Note: Do not allow MLT Leveling System to freeze for minimum of 24 hours prior to use.

Protection Note: When using MLT Leveling System for installations of thin tile, unglazed, or highly polished materials, it is strongly recommended to use the fitted Rubber Pad accessory under the re-usable tension locking cap.

Carton is 97.5 sq sheet - Size 24" x 38" - 15 Sheet per cartoon

Select the total unit (sq. ft) you need and it will round it to the nearest Sheet.

Blanke ULTRA-DRAIN is the first drain mat system that can be installed without a thick mortar bed and that offers all the stress absorption properties of an uncoupling system.
The superior drainage properties of the Blanke ULTRA-DRAIN prevent freeze/thaw damage caused by the accumulation of moisture in exterior tile installations and help reduce unsightly efflorescence.
Although only 1/4" thick, the Blanke ULTRA-DRAIN provides superior compressive and tensile strength when compared to other drain mats and uncoupling systems.

Properties:

  • Prevents freeze/thaw damage caused by moisture accumulation in exterior tile installations.
  • Helps prevent unsightly efflorescence.
  • Provides both superior drainage capacity and crack isolation properties.
  • Install with thinset mortar or Blanke AQUA SEAL no mud bed required.

This lightweight easy-to-install mat offers superior drain capabilities and all the stress absorption properties of an uncoupling system.

Installation:
In addition to being clean, dry, flat and load bearing, the substrate must be sloped a minimum of 1/4” per foot and waterproofed (If installation is not over occupied space, use Blanke AQUA SHIELD 100 for waterproofing).
Trowel a more liquid than normal mix of thinset mortar onto substrate.
Lay the Blanke ULTRA-DRAIN panels in a row so that the mesh overhang on the two sides of a panel cover the seams of the sides of adjacent panels without the overhang.
Subsequent rows of panels should be placed so that the seams running perpendicular to the previous row are offset a minimum of 3” from the seams running in the same direction in the previous row.
Use the flat side of a trowel or a vinyl roller to press the panel into the thinset ensuring that the fabric on the underside of the panel achieves full contact with the thinset and that there are no air bubbles.
Use the flat side of the trowel to key thinset into the voids on top of the Blanke ULTRA-DRAIN. Set tile using a notch trowel appropriate for the type of tile and traffic.
Blanke BALCON-Edge Protector with built in weep holes can be used to protect terrace or deck edge. (Read Blanke ULTRA-DRAIN Installation Instruction Blanke BALCONY SYSTEM prior to installing these products).

Pack of 100

  • Easy to Install
  • Easier to Remove
  • See all 4 corners of every intersection
  • 2-sided Tile Spacer
  • Save Time, Save Money
  • 2-Sided Design - Both sides of the TAVY Spacer are the same grout line dimension. Use the Cross side of spacer for intersections and Straight side between tiles.
  • Color Coded - TAVY Two-Sided Tile Spacers are color coded. There is a different color for each of the standard Seven Sizes. Color Coding eliminates confusion between similar sized spacers.
  • Reusable - The TAVY Two-Sided Tile Spacers are durable, washable plastic and float in water for easy cleaning.
  • Circle Design - The Circle Design of the TAVY Two-Sided Tile Spacer prevents tweaking at intersections and eliminates the problem of the spacer bottoming out in adhesive.
  • Easy Removal - Since the TAVY Two-Sided Tile Spacer sits on top of the installed tile...removal is as simple as kicking them out with your foot and sweeping them up. NO MORE RISK OF GROUTING OVER TILE SPACERS.
  • 4 to 1 Ratio - One TAVY Two-Sided Tile spacer eliminates the need to stand 4 old-fashioned rubber tile spacers on end around the intersection of four tiles.
  • Straighter Grout Lines - Simply "Trust the Spacer" by setting your tile as tightly as possible against the TAVY Two-Sided Tile Spacer and you will be rewarded will perfectly straight grout lines.

    You can still TRUST the TAVY Spacer to set straight grout lines, but now you can VERIFY that each intersection is PERFECT every time! Simply pack the tile tight against our patented TAVY Spacer and you can see for yourself that the corners are lined up perfectly...every time.

    The TAVY patented spacer is a dramatic improvement over the traditional spacers sold in the marketplace today. A major benefit of The TAVY Tile Spacer is that the circular design prevents the spacer from bottoming out into the cement or adhesive making removal extremely easy. Installers can use a 1/32 inch spacer as easily as they would use a 3/8 inch spacer. A traditional spacer must be painstakingly removed by picking each one out from between every tile! NEVER AGAIN will an installer have to get on his hands and knees to remove spacers with the TAVY Tile Spacer.

    Another benefit is the versatile, two sided design of the TAVY Tile Spacer which allows for an installer to use both sides of our spacer. The cross side can be used at any four corner intersection and the straight edge side can be used at any location a spacer is required.

    The TAVY Tile Spacer will soon become the preferred tool for every installation. By making tile installation easier, DIY???s (Do-It-Yourselfers) will be more tempted to tackle a project because they will be more confident that their job will look like that of a professional.

Schluter-KERDI was developed as a waterproofing membrane to be used in conjunction with ceramic and stone tile coverings. Tiles can be installed directly on Schluter-KERDI using the thin-bed method. Other trowel-applied covering materials, such as plaster, can also be used.

Pre-cut sections of Schluter-KERDI are available for inside and outside corners, as well as for pipe collars. Use Schluter-KERDI-BAND, in widths of 5" (12.5 cm), 7-1/4" (18.5 cm), or 10" (25 cm) to seal butt joints or corner joints. Schluter-KERDI-FLEX, in 5" (12.5 cm) or 10" (25 cm) widths, is used to seal expansion joints or flexible edge joints.

Accurate tile setting requires perfect leveling of the tiles.
Often it is hard to properly set ungauged and thin tiles as well as larger format thicker tiles because of uneven floor foundations.

As a result, tiles that seem perfectly level during the installation, after the thinset or adhesive cures, they often show a variance in height and can com promise the aesthetics.

This can be avoided, thanks to the new Raimondi Leveling Spacers, which will preserve the perfect leveling of the tiles, and will also speed up the installation.

As an end result, you can quickly achieve a smooth level surface using the new R-L-S system.
Minimum required joint:3/32". Tile thickness: minimum 1/8", maximum 1/2".
Both the setting and removal of the leveling spacers are quick and easy.

How to Use

How to set the support:
1. After having spread the adhesive, insert the support underneath the tiles and along the 4 sides.
2. According with tiles size, set one or more supports on every side of the tile.
3. Set the tile and beat in with a rubber mallet.

How to insert the wedge:
1. Insert the wedge in the support slot carefully not to pass the breaking point.
2. To facilitate this operation, the use of the special traction-adjustable-pliers is recommended.

How to remove the support:
Once the adhesive is set, the protruding part of the support has to be removed by separating it from base. This can be done thanks to the traction-adjustable-pliers, with a rubber mallet or even with feet. Beat parallel to the joint.

Wringmaster Grout clean-up System

Complete kit 1 of each

The Wringmaster??? provides a fast and efficient system to rinse and clean grout sponges.

The Wringmaster system consists of a patented wringer that attaches to any 3 or 5 gallon bucket with a few twists of the easy grip handles.

A premium grout sponge supplied by SpongaUSA (makers of the world's greatest grout sponges) is attached to the snap in replaceable handle. The combination "handle and sponge" slides effortlessly through the two opposing wringers in a "one pull and pivot" motion to rinse clean.
The Wringmaster system really does a better job of cleaning grout during the installation process. The sponges are cleaned much faster and more effectively than wringing them by hand. The system is very light weight and is easy to carry. Grout installation jobs can be completed much faster with the Wringmaster system by lining up multiple buckets of clean water. The Wringmaster can be quickly moved from bucket to bucket while dirty water is discarded. Even more time can be saved when multiple Wringmasters are used on a job. This is a real option as the Wringmaster is very competitively priced???especially when compared to the old style sponge mop bucket systems.

The Wringmaster was designed by a contractor for contractors... but simple enough for DIYers.

Rubi Tile Leveling System Straps 200

Rubi Tile Leveling System Straps 200

$64.00

Rubi Tile Leveling System Straps 200

Rubi Tile Level, fast leveling system.

Ideal for laying tile that are over 12" or that require the use of an adhesive mix.

Allows for the installation of marble and granite tiles.

Virtually eliminating lippage during the hardening of the adhesive.

FEATURES:

  • Flat surface drastically reduces the need for grinding and polishing.
  • Greatly reduces installation time therefore improving cost-effectiveness.
  • Caps can be reused up to 25 times.
  • Prevents tiles from moving while curing.
  • For tiles between 1/8" ( 3mm and 20mm ).
  • Thick with a grout joint of at least 1/48" ( 0,75mm ).

The Rubi system improves the superficial level obtained in the placement, to prevent movement between parts during the curing of the adhesive and eliminating unevenness between pieces. Its use, especially recommended for the placement of formats from 12" x 12", allow a reduction of the time of placement and thus an improvement in the profitability of the work.

Straps should be soaked in room temperature (or lukewarm) water for 2 hours or 30 minutes in hot water prior to use. Soaking is one time only; regardless of how long the straps are on hand. This increases the straps elastic strength, thus giving the straps maximum tension needed for proper installation.
