There are by far the best System on the market! Been Using them for the past month. after fighting with the Tuscan System, these wedges proven much easier and MUCH better in all ways. They are so easy to use, you can set and tighten them with one hand.we are using both the 1/16 and the 1/8 clips. this system can take much more stress then the Tuscan and has a larger flattening contact with the tile. we used them on 20'' by 20'' tiles on the floor and 16'' by 16'' on the walls and it is amazing how much better you feel at the end of a day. no more lifting wet tile or pushing down on them to make them flat. Thank you for carrying this system!
Raimondi Tile Leveling System, RLS.
Raimondi Leveling Spacers have been sold in Europe for quite a few years and finally we're able to introduce them to you!
- If you're a tile installer, you're well aware of how difficult it is to properly set flexible, large format, heavy, or low-thickness tiles because, often times, the floor foundation is uneven and/or contains imperfections.
- Tiles that seemed uniformly leveled while first installing them can show differences as the tile adhesive sets, compromising the overall aesthetics of your initial hard work.
- With the Raimondi Leveling Spacers, this potential is no longer a threat to your perfect tile project.
- In addition to ensuring the proper leveling of tiles, this system helps speed the tile setting process.
- System Starter Kit includes floor plier, 100 regular clips, and 100 wedges
- Greatly improves the overall quality of your tile project
- Both installation and removal of the spacers are quick and easy!
- Sturdy Tile Wedge holds tiles better than competitors
- Works well with both Wall and Floor projects!
- Tiles are not pulled from the thinset, they're pushed into it.
- Rather than worrying about voids and coverage, RLS spacers further enhance your thinset adhesion to your tiles!
- Wedges size: 3-1/2" Long x 3/4" Wide.
- Regular Leveling Clip size: 1/8" up to 1/2" tile, 1/16" joint.
- Regular Wide Leveling Clip size: 1/8" up to 1/2" tile, 1/8" joint.
- Large Leveling Clip size: Recommended for use with 1/2" to 3/4" tile, 1/16" joint.
- Minimum required joint: 1/16", (1.5mm), max 1/8" (3mm).
- Tile thickness minimum required 1/8", (3mm), max 3/4" (20mm)
- STEP 1: After spreading your tile adhesive, insert leveling spacer underneath the tiles along the 4 sides, use traditional spacers as you normally would to square up the corners. For larger tiles, it may be necessary to "double up", using 2 leveling spacers for each side.
- STEP 2: Set the tile and beat it with a rubber mallet
- STEP 3: Use the special traction-adjustable pliers to insert the wedge into the leveling spacers, paying attention not to pass the breakpoint.
- STEP 4:Once the tile adhesive has been allowed to set. Remove the leveling spacers with the traction-adjustable pliers, rubber mallet, or kicking them out with your feet.

i am a 2nd generation tile contractor w/ almost 30yrs of exp.my company installs stone/tile in high end custom homes.with all my exp. i was hesitant to try a leveling system.we have never needed one before...but after using the raimondi system for the last month i'm sold!we just finished 5,000sq' of large format,rectified edge porcelain and the system was awsm.with proper prep of the subfloor this system can really save a lot of time and effort that it takes to get a level floor w/ no lippage.the final results were as good as a mud set floor...the only complaints are the wedges seem to break very easily when removing them so plan on losing 10% of them after each use.
although very expensive it does an excellant job - most important buy a dasco pro 7.5 inch ultra bar to hammer free the plastic clips - if you don't get a clean brake it's a bitch to remove the plastic before you move on to grout
This system is the best thing that has happened to large tile. Will always use them. I am hooked on them. They pay form themselves!
It works. Didn't like the fact sometimes the strip doesnt break clean and remove the tiles is needed.
We've used this system consistently for the past year, on everything from porcelain to gauged natural stone layouts, and it does a great job of bringing tile into a relatively flat plane. Easy to use, the only design flaw is that occasionally we'll break out the leveling clip and part of the clip remains embedded in the grout joint, which must be cut out with a utility blade. Still, the system does a remarkable job and is easy to use. We recommend for both professionals and DIY folks alike.
