Professional tools for handling, cutting and drilling large format grès porcelain tiles

Handling large-format grès porcelain tiles means dealing with stoneware slabs ranging from 120cm (47’’) to over 360cm (141’’) in size.

These “giant” tiles have been available on international markets since 2008, and from that moment on, their production volumes have continuously increased.

Some countries in particular have adopted these tiles very quickly, and today large format tiles represent a very important percentage of their domestic market.

Handling these porcelain slabs follows the same technical principles as dealing with small-medium sized tiles, however specific tools and procedures are required.

The tools used for handling large format stoneware slabs can be subdivided into 5 main categories, according to the processing phase:

Handling of large format tiles:

Moving these slabs is one of the most delicate phases of the laying process. The tiles are normally transported horizontally, or in wooden A-frame cases.

Once the products arrive at the installation site, a special forklift is needed to extract the box from the truck and place it in the work area.

These tiles have different thicknesses, ranging from 3mm (0.12’’) to 20mm (0.78’’) and, as mentioned before, their length can reach up to 360 cm (141’’) today.

For this reason, large format tiles can bend or twist, and they are particularly fragile near the corners.

In order to avoid breakage or damage during the handling phase, from the storage area to the work site, Brevetti Montolit has created a series of specific products and accessories:

– Plastic corner protectors for large format tiles with different heights

– Manual adjustable handling systems equipped with professional large suction cups (Ø 20cm – 8”) with safety vacuum gauges to maintain the seal even in extreme situations (it will show any loss of adhesion with the tile instantaneously)

– Mechanical wheeled systems capable of easily handling slabs weighing up to 260 kg (570 lbs), and a maximum height of 2.5 m (98’’).

– Trolleys / Trolleys for moving large format porcelain slabs in the installation site

Cutting of large format grès porcelain slabs:

The cutting of giant tiles is based on the same incision and splitting method that is commonly used for standard-sized tiles.

The cut can then be made with a manual system or with an electric cutter and a diamond blade.

In the specific case of large sized tiles, these machines are designed to allow the installer to make cuts fast and with maximum accuracy.

It is important to underline that in order to make a precise cut and to avoid unwanted cracks, it is vital that the ceramic or porcelain slab is positioned on an extremely rigid, straight and stable surface.

The recommended products for cutting giant tiles are the following:

– Modular work table, robust and easy to carry

– Flash Line manual modular tile cutter, with a patented system without suction cups

– Moto Flash Line, motorized version of the Flash Line manual tile cutter

– Specific diamond blades for thin and delicate large format tiles

Drilling of large format stoneware slabs:

The drilling of large format porcelain tiles, especially for the very thin ones, is another delicate phase of a tiler’s work. These slabs need, more and more often, to be drilled in different points with round and/or square holes.

Often these holes are at close range in the case of faucets, shower stalls or cooking hobs.

To avoid any kind of inconvenience during the drilling phase, Montolit has developed a series of specific diamond core bits and milling bits for giant thin tiles.

These bits have reduced thickness and thanks to specific diamond grit sizes, and a particularly studied shape, they reduce vibrations to a minimum level.

The main product lines for the drilling of large format tiles are:

– Specific dry diamond core bits to drill holes on giant slabs

– Diamond drills to make medium to large holes in large format tiles, to be used on angle grinders

– Diamond core bits to make small holes on large format slabs, to be used on angle grinder, universal drill and cordless drill

Finishing of large format plates:

More and more often it is required by designers and architects to create specific couplings between large format slabs. For this reason it is necessary that the sides of the tile undergo specific processes such as bevelling or 45-degree cutting.

Performing these work by hand through the use of a simple angle grinder is a long process with non-constant results due to the length of the plate.
