How to install

1. PREPARATION

  • Make sure that surface is dry, clean, flat and firm. Do not tile on old floor coverings like vinyl tiles.
  • Check screen, substrate and foundation are set for tiling.
  • Make sure there are expansion joints in the screed.

2. TILE PURCHASING

  • Buy enough tiles to cover the required area – get 10% to allow for cutting and breakages.
  • Make sure all the boxes have the same shade number, and that all the tiles, are the same colour, size and are clear of defects.
  • Tip: Mix 4-5 boxes prior to laying to minimize any possible shade variation.

3. BEGIN TILING

  • Start tiling in the middle of the area.

4. APPLYING ADHESIVE

  • Make sure you’re using the correct adhesive for the application.
  • Check screen, substrate and foundation are set for tiling.
  • Apply adhesive evenly using a notched trowel. ( Apply 1m2 at a time)
  • Only mix enough adhesive to use within 1 hour.
  • Work over small areas so the adhesive does not dry.
  • Scrape away excess adhesive, separating each tile from the next.
  • All tiles must be fully embedded using a rubber mallet.

5. CORRECT SPACING

  • Start off by creating building lines in your work space. This will allow you to achieve straight lines.
  • Do not butt join tiles. Spacing is 5mm-8mm.( Please use spacers)
  • When tiling large areas. Create expansion joints to allow for structural movement.
  • This is done by using a flexible compound (such as silicone) between tiles.
  • Expansion joints should be made every 9m2.
  • The perimeter joint needs to be 5-8mm.

6. GROUTING

  • Make sure all the joints are clean.
  • Apply the grout using a rubber squeegee.
  • Grouting should be done 24 hours after the installation of the tiles to allow, the tile to set properly.
  • Once the grout has set the entire area must be cleaned,
  • With a damp cloth, Grout Off and Easy Clean, Cleaning agents are recommended.
  • Avoid walking on the tiles for 2-3 days to prevent loosening of the tiles.
