The installation of large-format porcelain sheet requires the use of very specific equipment and elements for cutting and handling. For this, the SLAB SYSTEM range already offers its solutions for cutting (SLIM CUTTER and TC-125) and handling (SLIM EASYTRANS and SLAB TRANS HEAVY DUTY).

In the installation phase, the vast majority of the necessary tools are the same that a professional installer would use for a traditional job: trowels, combs, drills, mixers ... but there is, due to the particularities of the material, the need to use some much more specific tools.

Specifically, we can refer to the range of suction cups for rough surfaces, perfect to help in the installation and handling of already cut pieces or even as extra clamping elements.

On the other hand, we have the flattener for tiles. This particular tool is, in the installation of porcelain sheet, the natural substitute for the traditional rubber mallet. It must be explained that, for these materials with such reduced thickness, the use of a traditional rubber mallet is not recommended. Therefore, instead, the flattener will not only help to position the piece and make it easier for the adhesive to adhere correctly, but it will also facilitate the exit of air that may be trapped in it.

In any case, the range of tools for the installation of large-format porcelain sheets must be completed with the rest of the necessary tools in any tile installation.

Our strong commitment to professionals forces us to continue working and improving all our products. Designing and incorporating new versions and models to current product ranges. With more than 60 years of experience behind it, RUBI continues to offer professionals in the sector the best tools for installing ceramic tiles.
