The Raimondi Tile Levelling System is a revolutionary new way of ensuring that all your tiles are perfectly level with one another.
The Raimondi Tile Levelling System is comprised of a thin plastic clip that is designed to be fitted in a grout joint between two tiles. A plastic wedge is then driven by a pair of specially designed pliers into the aperture in the centre of the clip until it sits flush on the surface of both tiles, so that they are both level. Once the tiles have set, the clip is easily broken off, leaving only its base bedded in the adhesive under the two tiles. The plastic wedge is fully re-useable, which saves costs on further jobs, as you only need to buy clips.
The Raimondi Tile Levelling System uses two sizes of spacer clips, 3-12 and 12-20. The 3-12 clip is for tiles that are from 3 – 12mm in thickness, and the 12-20 is for tiles that are from 12 – 20mm in thickness. The 3-12 clip size is available in 1mm, 1.5mm, 3mm and 4mm widths (joint width). The 12-20 clip size is only available in the 1.5mm width.
The plastic wedges work with both sizes. Use the consumption table guide linked at the bottom of the page to determine how many clip/wedges you will need for your project.
Also available is a anti-chipping/anti-scratch plate that can be used in combination with Raimondi Tile Levelling wedge/clip system to avoid potential accidental damage during installation of tiles that have a particularly delicate top finishing. You place it in between the wedge and the tile by inserting it on the clip before wedge insertion. The anti-scratch plate performs two functions at the same time: Anti-chipping since it prevents the stems of the Raimondi Tile Levelling System clip from touching the edge of the tile during wedge insertion thanks to a dedicated L-shaped tab; And prevents scratching by ensuring the wedge does not touch the tile but slides on the platform instead.
Furthermore, the Anti-scratch plate can also be used as a removable and reusable multi-size-spacer, by having 3 sides of the plate in different thicknesses, 1.5mm, 2mm and 3 mm. Each side is marked respectively. The Anti-scratch plate can be reused over and over again, both as anti-chipping and anti-scratch element and multi-size removable-spacer.
The use of the Anti-scratch plate does not alter the performance of the Raimondi Tile Levelling clips in terms of maximum and minimum thickness of the tiles to be levelled, but it does increase the joint size by 0.5 mm (0.019 inches). This is in order to perform the anti-chipping function. It is recommended to perform the final removal phase with a hammer. The Anti-scratch plate is made of premium quality plastic material that prevents adhesion of tile adhesive to the product and comes in a plastic bucket for convenient storage.
The Raimondi Tile Levelling System uses special traction-adjustable pliers that are available in two different versions, one for floor applications and one for wall applications.
The use of the pliers is recommended and is facilitates accurate levelling and speeding up the insertion of the wedge in the clips. They also optimize the pressure on the tiles being levelled.
How to use the Raimondi Tile Levelling System:
- After having spread the adhesive, insert the Raimondi Tile Levelling System clip (base/support) underneath the tiles and along the 4 sides.
- According to the tile size, set one or more clips on every side of the tile.
- Set the tile and beat it with a rubber mallet.
- Insert the Raimondi Tile Levelling System wedge in the clip (base) slot, using the Anti-chip/scratch plate if required, paying attention not to pass the breakpoint.
- To facilitate this operation, the use of the traction-adjustable Raimondi Tile Levelling System pliers is recommended.
- Once the adhesive is set, the protruding part of the support has to be separated from the base, which is embedded beneath the tile edge. This can be done using a rubber mallet or even feet. Beat parallel to the joint.
