GPTP Designed Installation Systems

Sponsored by Coverings 2023

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be introduced to the new product and installation standards for the safe use of gauged porcelain tile panels/slabs.
  2. This program will illustrate how to properly install floor applications that will reduce lippage and the risk of slip/fall accidents that sometimes result from excess lippage.
  3. Participants will learn new installation techniques required and design options that offer substantial cost savings over traditional methods.
  4. Explain how gauged porcelain tile panels/slabs can contribute to desirable, sustainable design practices.
