Advanced course on specific innovative tile setting techniques for ceramics materials in the UK and Ireland
The photos depict a group of British tilers following the first advanced course on the latest innovative tile setting techniques, held by Montolit in Edinburgh (UK). A one-of-a-kind course created to answer the need that today’s tilers have to be updated with the latest products and procedures in the tiling sector.
Every month ceramic manufacturers launch on the UK and Irish markets dozens of new types of tile, porcelain stoneware, glass mosaic. These materials often require innovative tile setting techniques and cutting-edge tools for professional tilers, which are not yet widespread and well known on the local market.
In addition, the manufacturer and the end user are increasingly becoming more demanding regarding the final result of tilers’ work, especially when laying high-quality tile and mosaic.
Companies like Florim Ceramics, Iris Ceramics, Laminam and many others are pushing the market for large format tiles, with sizes of 1 meter by 3 meters and more. These ceramics are not promoted via classic retail channels but by architects and designers instead, who specify the product directly to the customer during the design process.
It is extremely complicated and risky to install these new generation porcelain tiles with classic installation techniques and standard tools.
The first advanced course on innovative installation techniques and tiling tools was held in Edinburgh (UK), in collaboration with a renowned school for tilers.
This is the first in a long series of professional seminars which Montolit is going to deliver in the United Kingdom and Ireland from the end of 2016 onwards.
Upcoming seminars are planned in Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds, Cambridge, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Oxford and Dublin.
