Showing self-confidence with (large) format

For years, there has been a trend towards large-size tiles, both indoors and outdoors. It doesn't matter whether it's a new building or a renovation - the tiles and slabs can't be big enough for the clients.

One of the main reasons for the increasing popularity of XXL-formats is the fact that large formats make small rooms, showers or terraces appear larger and more spacious.

In addition, large-format tiles also score points in the categories of ease of care and cleanliness.

XXL-formats need professionals - and the right installation products

Especially when laying XXL-tiles, the experience and professional know-how of the tile layer and the right overall system are essential to avoid a "shambles" in the end.
For ex. indoors, it is of utmost importance that the substrate is absolutely even and that the mortar meets the high requirements.

Saint-Gobain Weber has developed a matched product range around its two highlights weber.plan 813-20 (floor levelling compound up to 20 mm) and weber.xerm 861 (multi-use flexible tile adhesive) to meet these high requirements.

However, XXL-formats are not only in vogue in living or workrooms, but also in outdoor areas. These surfaces require further detailed precautions to be resistant to weathering.

Saint-Gobain Weber also offers a special system for this. From the substrate up to the top layer (flooring material) the waterproofing and tile adhesive system weber.xerm 844 withstands all external weather conditions and offers years of safety.
