Installation

  1. The council of America (TCA) Handbook states that “All expansion, control, construction, cold and seismic joints in the structure should continue through the tile work, including such joints at vertical surfaces”. So when such joints should be placed immediately above and should be continuously on the bedding finish. For suspended slabs, movement joints are to be placed above all beam supports and at center points of slabs where deflection expected is more than 20mm.
  2. Using a notched trowel, apply tile adhesive to the area where the profile will be placed.
  3. Press the perforated anchoring legs of Genotek into the adhesive bed and align. The profile must align directly with expansion and movement joints in the substrate below.
  4. Completely cover the perforated anchoring leg with tile adhesive. Apply tile adhesive to the vertical section of the profile leg at an angle.
  5. Firmly press the adjoining tiles into place and adjust them in such a way that the upper lip of the profile is flush with the tile.                                                                                    NOTE: The profile should not be higher than the tile, but rather flush or up to approx.1mm lower.                                                                                                                              Always set the uncut section of tile against the profile and ensure solid coverage at the profile, which assures a solid coverage at the profile area.
  6. The tile is set to the side of the profile, which assures a uniform joint space of 1.5mm.
  7. Fill the joints between the profile and the tile completely with grout.
The integrated floor finish cracked.
Solution: Prevent excessive load from the design load capacity.  
The pan nosing and the base frame are becoming a tripping hazard.
Solution: Adjust the blockout or the upstand height to level the top of the base frame and pan nosing flushed to the floor finish.
Produce excessive noise.
Solution: 
Tightened the centering turn-bar screw properly. Be careful not to over-tightened because it will bend the center pan.
