Designing With Tile 2020 presented by the International Masonry Institute (1 LU | HSW)
Attendees will develop an understanding of the various types of tile, setting methods, system components, and quality assurance methods as outlined in the ANSI A108 standards and the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) Handbook. The program will address design and installation requirements for conventional and large format tile including substrate preparation and floor flatness standards. It will examine ANSI requirements for mortar coverage, grout joint width, allowable lippage, layout, and bounding. It will also look at the new standards for thin Gauged Porcelain Tile (GPT) panels, and the specification language for installer qualifications appearing in the TCNA Handbook and MasterSpec.
