Each unit is designed with an integrated grout column, manufactured from an impervious, durable, and semi-flexible urethane - creating a tile assembly system that will not discolor, chip, or stain over time.
Each pattern is designed with interlocking male/female connectors, allowing the system to be quickly assembled. Tiles are inserted into an individual unit: pre-assembly or post. See installation video for reference.
This product is designed with capabilities to assemble tiles of most shapes, to include square, rectangle, hexagon, Herringbone pattern, and other shapes and patterns. See Product Gallery for details of pattern designs
One of the greatest defects within typical grouting systems is the certainty of eventual staining and discoloration. This system utilizes materials that are impervious to moisture, therefore creating a flooring design with long-term color retention.
No cracking or chipping of grout, which is highly common within typical grouting methods.
An individual unit is not required for each tile within the floor design. In this system, the square units support two tiles within the overall floor design / The Rectangular Half Off-Set pattern unit supports four tiles per each unit. Other tile shapes and patterns will vary per yield of each unit – The Herringbone Pattern yields approximately 1.5 tiles per individual unit.
Standard tile setting processes require spacers and installer accuracy. Even with the most skilled and seasoned installer, all projects invariably will have areas that are not perfect right angles within tile settings. The Tile Assembly System, with its interlocking connection system, is engineered to assure precise dimensions and right angles throughout the entire project, as well as uniformed thickness between each tile.
Dramatically decreases installation labor over entire project. No need for grouting process, with integral grout column. Connection system allows for fast setup throughout the project.
Electrical wiring, for purpose of grout illumination, can be placed into this system. As units are connected together, low voltage current will flow through the grout columns, offering a unique ambience and designed lighted pathways.
By introducing a material such as Strontium Aluminate into the manufacturing process, this system can be charged through natural light and/or synthetic means, charging the plastic to emit a soft glow to the tiled system grid.
Full thinset mortar application necessary for vertical applications and countertops. See METHODS OF INSTALLATION.
With options for a non-professional DIY installer. Please see Installation Methods.
Alternating colors of grout are not feasible within conventional grouting processes. The Tile Assembly System allows for options of more than one color to be designed into the flooring project.
To include hexagon, octagon, pentagon, Herringbone pattern, and other tile shapes
Through the injection molding process, tooling can be designed to include various impressions onto the top of the grout column
