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" to 1/2" tile, 1/16" joint.
Large Leveling Clip size: 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)
How to use
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.

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.
