Boxes are clearly marked with a batch number and the product should be checked for match before laying. Note: Architecton has a directional design and tiles should be laid chequerboard fashion as indicated below.

Laying Architecton Tiles Careful planning and consideration is necessary if the desired overall effect is to be achieved. It is customary to start laying tiles from a central position. A chalk line should be struck halfway across the width and length of the area to be covered to determine the centre point. Once these two guide lines are struck it is recommended that a single row of tiles be laid without adhesive, widthwise and lengthwise to check both positioning and patterning. Apply adhesive according to the manufacturers instructions. Start laying tiles from central axis, place tiles into the adhesive, pressing firmly and evenly making sure not to trap air bubbles, proceed along and across centre lines working outwards. Tiles must be thoroughly rolled using a 68kg roller to ensure adhesion. Border tiles are now cut to size by placing them on the last square tile stuck and scribing them using a spare full tile placed against the wall as a template.

Subfloors Must be dry, smooth and flat. Please refer to separate SITES & SUBFLOORS data sheet.
