(1 HSW) FREE - Specifying Success Ceramic Tile Installations, Beyond TCNA and ANSI
Time & Location
About the Event
Learn how to properly specify a successful installation of ceramic and stone tiles. The focus of the program will be on industry standards, i.e., TCA (Tile Council of North America) and ANSI (American National Standard for Installation of Ceramic Tile); changes in and review of important TCNA and ANSI standards, changes in the TCNA Handbook, important definitions, and important concepts and trends you should be aware of to ensure a successful installation. (1 HSW)
The two primary industry organizations that establish standards for the tile and stone industry are the TCNA (Tile Council of North America) and ANSI (American National Standards Institute). TCNA publishes guidelines and best practices for ceramic, glass and stone tile installations and details; ANSI publishes the specification standards describing the quality of materials and methods. Reference materials are updated on regular cycles with revisions or additions developed through industry consensus and open committees included in each new issue. Current versions of these reference manuals include ISO designations, new environmental conditions classifications and service ratings, moisture vapor transmission considerations for wet areas/steam rooms, green building standards, assembly weights, joint width requirements, and more….Websites: www.tcnatile.com www.sikatile.com
Successful specifications and installations begin with determining the appropriate tile or stone material, installation methods and setting materials for the intended usage conditions. Environmental classifications, service ratings and total assembly weights all play a key role.
• Always review the most current installation requirements and best practices, follow manufacturer recommendations, and avoid “options” in the specification. “Options” typically get “opted out”!
• Evaluate the minimum requirements vs the expected performance requirements.
• Utilize industry experts and trusted product representatives to help you design successful projects year after year!
