Hard copies of TTA’s Tiling Guide can be obtained by contacting the TTA. The Guide is a 28-page A5 booklet, which includes help and support for tilers in their day-to-day work. It contains practical information on how to deal with key installation issues which most tilers will encounter in the course of their work.
TTA’s Technical Committee produced the content for the Guide, which covers all the key areas – training, different tile types, slip resistance, substrate preparation, movement joints, the requirements of BS5385 and many other important topics. It also includes sections on adhesives and grouts, as well as trowel choice. The Guide includes a substantial section on Special Installation Considerations, such as tiling on to anhydrite screeds, installing uncoupling membranes, wet rooms, underfloor heating and much more.
“TTA now holds a wealth of technical information on all subjects related to tiling,” says Paul Luff, TTA Chairman. “I’m delighted that we have been able to bring this all together in such an attractive and easily accessible format. I am confident that our new Tiling Guide will be of benefit and interest to everyone in the tiling industry, whether they are just starting out or are a time-served professional tiler.”
TTA’s comprehensive range of technical documents are referenced within the Guide, which are available on the TTA website for free download by members and registered architects. The Guide also includes a list of manufacturer members.
