Leveling Tile

Leveling Tile are popular and widely used pieces of plastic that are responsible for smoothing and leveling the tiles that are used on the floor and walls of the building.

The plastic leveler is a tool that has recently opened its place among tile, ceramic and stone installers, so it can be said that it is considered a new and new tool. In the following, we will publish materials that will help you get to know more about ceramic alignment and tile cross

Leveling Tile

leveling tile, the use of this tool, in addition to making the work easy and convenient makes the ceramics lock together and we no longer have to worry about them loosening after installation.

The mechanism of the leveling function is such that by simultaneously applying pressure to the lower and upper surface of the ceramic, it causes the adjacent tiles to be on the same level in terms of height.

This operation is called swinging with clips and wedges or removing work nails.

??? What is the equivalent of a tile

Aligning tiles is one of the ceramic installation equipments, which consists of two separate parts and pieces called aligning clips and aligning wedges. The clip or female is produced in white color from new materials, and the male or male is produced in red or black color.

When installing the tile, the tile leveling clip, by placing it between the tiles and ceramics and being locked by the tile leveling wedge, causes the complete and accurate leveling of the adjacent tiles and ceramics, and there is no need for multiple blows of the rubber hammer and It is not necessary to use a leveler, of course, provided that the bottom surface has been prepared in advance. It is much easier to use the ceramic method compared to the traditional and grouting methods, and it also increases the speed of the work process.


Advantages of using the ceramic leveling system

Using a tile leveler during installation has many advantages, including

The lack of accumulation of excess water after washing, which collects between the ceramics (band) in our area and after a short period of time causes the ceramics to become dark and stained.

The reason for this accumulation of liquids is the non-levelness of the adjacent ceramics, which is greatly reduced if the level tile is used.

Increasing speed and accuracy is another advantage of using ceramic levelers in tiling projects.

To install a floor ceramic using the traditional mortar method, the installer spends a lot of time because he has to align each ceramic using a rubber hammer and multiple blows, but this time is greatly reduced by using the new leveling method

The use of this system does not require high skill and experience, and people with little experience can easily work with this device and finally provide a very beautiful and acceptable work to the employer

Because the leveling tile system works like a ceramic lock, after installing the leveling tile, you can walk on the surface covered with ceramics immediately, and there is no need to wait until it is completely dry

Similar types of ceramic tiles

Similar to ceramic tiles, there are different models, each of which has its own specific applications.

1- Equal to the flat tile or clips and wedges

This type of parallel is the most popular type of parallel due to its abundance in the market, which has three sizes.

It is equal to the small tile, the internal height of the clip is 17 miles, and it is suitable for tiles with small dimensions of 20×20, 30×30 and 40×40, which are mainly installed in the bathroom. The small parallel is suitable for thicknesses of 6 to 8 mm.

Equal to the average tile, the internal height of the clip is 20 mils, and it is suitable for ceramics with dimensions of 60×60 – 80×80 and 100×100, which are mainly used in the body and floor. The average level is suitable for thicknesses of 8 to 12 mm.

It is equal to the large tile, the internal height of the clip is 23 miles, and it is suitable for ceramics with dimensions of 120*120 – 120*240 and slabs. Due to its strength, this parallel type has a higher bending power than the other two sizes. The large equivalent is suitable for thicknesses of 10 to 16 mm.

 2- Parallel to the screw tile

The screw leveler is another type of ceramic leveler, which, due to the lack of use of pliers in its installation, has less bending power than the flat leveler, and is naturally less useful. It is equivalent to a screw suitable for small environments, which is not economical to buy pliers.

This type of leveling is hand-tightened by rotation, and somewhat equalizes the ceramics in the body and floor. Screw leveler is used for 6 to 14 mil ceramics.

3- Parallel to the butterfly tile

This type of ceramic equivalent is a new type that has recently reached the Iranian market. Its shape is like a butterfly with two wings, by laying these two wings, pressure is applied on the ceramic and the adjacent ceramics are aligned.

Due to the high production cost and the high price of this product, it is not used much, besides, it has an average bending power.

The method of using a tile leveler in the installation of ceramic tiles

In the method of installing ceramic tiles using a tile leveler, the work surface must first be prepared and leveled. Then, using a combed trowel, we spread the quality tile adhesive to the appropriate thickness and place the ceramic.

Then we place the required number of parallel clips or mats on the sides of the ceramic. Now we place the next ceramic and pass the parallel or male wedge through the parallel clip. In the next step, we tighten the alignments using the alignment tile leveling wrench.

We continue this work until the entire surface is covered and the work is finished. After the complete drying of the tile glue, which takes about a day (this time varies in different seasons and at different temperatures), we proceed to separate the tiles from the surface of the ceramics.

For this, it is enough to break the alignment clips by hitting the alignment clip from the side with a rubber hammer or shoe tip or another object.

After finishing the work, we will fill the ceramic bands using high-quality banding powder
