The Tile Council of North America is printing a limited run of the American National Standard Specifications for Gauged Porcelain Tile and Gauged Porcelain Tile Panels/Slabs (ANSI A137.3 and A108.19).
American National Standard Specification A137.3 describes the minimum physical properties and grading procedures for gauged porcelain tiles and gauged porcelain tile panels/slabs. It provides criteria for buyers, specifiers, installers, manufacturers and the public in general. ”Gauged” means manufactured to a thickness that is specific and largely associated with installation and use. Tile panels/slabs are those that are one square meter in facial area or larger.
American National Standard A108.19 provides procedures and requirements for interior installation of gauged porcelain tiles and gauged porcelain tile panels/slabs. These products require unique installation and workmanship considerations.
TCNA will only be printing copies for those who pre-order books and does not expect to print more copies for at least one year. So be sure to order enough copies to fulfill your needs through the end of 2018. Orders are expected to ship by the end of the year. The pre-order period ends on October 30.
