TAVY 2-sided Tile Spacer in White 1/8” is commonly used for everyday tile installations.
2-Sided Design: Cross and Straight Edge Spacer In One
Each TAVY Tile Spacer is a two-sided spacer. One side is a Cross Edge
spacer for use at the intersection of four tiles. The other side is a
Straight Edge spacer for use between two tiles. The Straight Edge side
is often mistaken as a handle for easy placement. However, the Straight Edge is a fully
functional spacer of the same grout line
dimension as the Cross Edge spacer.
Color-Coded: Different Color for Each
of Seven Sizes
TAVY Tile Spacers come in seven different
sizes. Each size is distinguished by a unique
color. Color-coding eliminates confusion
between similar sized spacers.
• 1/32” Yellow: The world’s smallest spacer. Ideal for marble,
granite and other pieces of natural stone.
• 1/16” Green: Traditional size used for marble, granite
and natural stone.
• 3/32” Purple: Ideal spacer for 2” x 2” Mosaic Tile Sheets;
particularly Daltile and American Olean brands.
• 1/8” White: Commonly used for everyday tile installations.
• 3/16” Blue: Commonly used for everyday tile installations.
• 1/4” Orange: Commonly used for everyday tile installations.
• 3/8” Gray: Commonly used for everyday tile installations.
Reusable: Injection Molded Plastic
TAVY Tile Spacers are durable, washable plastic and float in water for
Circle/Disk Center: Won’t Bottom out in Adhesive
TAVY Tile Spacers are top-set which keeps the spacers at a uniform
depth. This eliminates the spacer from bottoming out and becoming
totally covered by adhesive. The Circle Design prevents tweaking at
intersections and leaves the larger portion of the TAVY Tile Spacer on
top of the tile for easy removal.
Easy Removal: Sweep or Kick out
Removal is as simple as kicking the TAVY Tile Spacers out from
between the tiles with your foot and sweeping them up. This eliminates
the use of tools to remove spacers from thinset or adhesive. There is
NO MORE RISK OF GROUTING OVER TILE
4 to 1 Ratio: Save Money
TAVY Tile Spacers eliminate the need to stand 4
rubber tile spacers on end around the intersection of four tiles. Now, only 1 TAVY Tile Spacer is
all that is needed to ensure a straight grout line
at each intersection.
Straighter Lines: Trust the Spacer
Do-It-Yourselfers and tile setters need to simply “Trust the Spacer” by
setting their tile as tightly as possible against the TAVY Tile Spacer. This
will guarantee a professional result.
USING TAVY TILE SPACERS:
TAVY Tile Spacers can be used in floor, wall and countertop tile installations. The use of spacers cuts down on the need for “eyeing” grout
joints and will insure the uniformity of grout joints. Creating consistent
grout joints will help increase the visual appeal of any tiled surface.
TAVY Tile Spacers are also helpful when planning the layout of a tile
job. The Straight Edge side of the spacer can be used between tiles to
determine the accurate starting point for any job. Any Do-It-Yourselfer
or professional tile setter can push a row of tiles with accurate grout
lines from side to side to determine the best spot to start a given job.
This will help minimize odd-sized tile cuts and will maximize the overall visual appeal of the finished project.
TAVY Tile Spacers are best used tiling to a straight edge. The straight
edge can be used to help pack the installation tightly. By using our
philosophy, “Trust the Spacer”, anyone can finish with a professional
result and Finish with a Smile
