Laying Instructions

Laying Instructions

CT 1Creasing Tiles should be laid with a broken bond and a minimum lap of 75mm.  The joint width between tiles should not exceed 10mm in all applications.

When cutting creasing tiles, a mechanical disc cutter is recommended over hand cutting particularly when used in exposed areas, as this will provide a neater appearance and help avoid cracks that can reduce the performance of the creasing tile.

For freestanding walls where creasing tiles are used under brick cappings, day courses of clay tiles should be laid with staggered joints in a 1:1/4:3 mortar and a minimum projection from the wall of at least 45mm.
