Tuiles autocollantes Smart Tiles – Installation du modèle imbriqué Subway Sand
Voici comment débuter l’installation de votre dosseret de cuisine ou de salle de bain avec les tuiles autocollantes Smart Tiles. Dans l’exemple suivant, nous avons utilisé le modèle Subway Sand. La même logique s’applique pour chaque modèle des familles de tuiles Subway, Bellagio, Murano et Muretto. D’abord, bien nettoyer la surface avec un dégraissant (tel que le TSP). Vous pouvez aussi enlever les joints de calfeutrage à l’angle du comptoir et du mur. N’oubliez pas de bien vous laver les mains avant de débuter mais de tout de même éviter de toucher à l’adhésif des tuiles. Ensuite, tracer une ligne au niveau à la hauteur de la première rangée de tuiles. Puisque nous recommandons de débuter la pose des tuiles Smart Tiles dans un coin du dosseret de la cuisine ou de la salle de bain, couper les dents afin d’obtenir une tuile droite. Nous vous invitons à visionner la vidéo suivante pour plus d’information : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azNOu584gUc. N’oubliez pas de superposer les lignes de coulis afin d’obtenir le même espace entre toutes les tuiles. Vous trouverez d’autres astuces pour l’installation des tuiles autocollantes Smart Tiles sur cette page : http://www.thesmarttiles.com/fr/comment-installer/conseils-installation/. Les Smart Tiles, les tuiles autocollantes peler et coller, conviennent à n’importe quel bricoleur. Le composant breveté Gel-O ™ donne l’effet 3 dimensions et ne jaunira et ne craquera jamais. Il est garanti que le dosseret autocollant Smart Tiles adhèrera sans ajout de colle et qu’il restera sur votre mur aussi longtemps que vous le souhaitez.
