Centura Tile, the leading ceramic tile distributor in Canada, is proud to offer a new tile and stone levelling system from Raimondi, the world-class provider of machines and tools for tile and stone installation.
The Raimondi Levelling System (RLS) has only been around since 2009, but in that short time, it has built a reputation for providing the most effective levelling system for making tile and stone installations easier. The introduction of the RLS adds to our growing reputation as the leading accessory and ceramic tile distributor in Canada.
The new RLS 3D clips are used in conjunction with a wedge that fits in-between the surface of the tile and the top of the clip, pushing the tile down into the mortar and creating a smooth, level floor. The new RLS clips have a retractable fin that pops up as an additional spacer for the tiles, meaning you can use less clips. This is ideal when installing large tiles for two reasons: because it makes it easier to install a level floor and because the base of the clips that fit underneath the tiles hold the slab in place, preventing slumping or sagging after installation. As the leading ceramic tile distributor in Canada, we have built our reputation on offering these and other products that give you the best-looking floors possible.
The main purpose of using the Raimondi Levelling System is to prevent “lippage,” a variation in the height of edges between tiles. Lippage can lead to a variety of problems, such as shadowing and a potential trip hazard, and can also ruin the look of your new floor. The Raimondi Levelling System prevents lippage, so your tiles will be perfectly straight and level.
The clips’ retractable spacing fins make them ideal for installing tiles even faster by reducing the amount of clips previously used. Where an installer would have used four RLS clips, Centura Tile can now use one. The fin works as an extra spacer that you can butt the tiles up against, by putting the RLS clip in the middle of four adjoining corners.
Combine the RLS with other innovative tools and accessories that Centura Tile carries and you will have created a truly superior installation system that ensures that the tiles you install, regardless of the material they are made from, are correctly set for a perfect installation.

As the leading distributor of ceramic tiles in Canada, we are proud to offer the Raimondi Levelling System and many more tools to make the installation of your stone or tiles as fast and easy as possible.
