The tiling industry is always on the move, with new technologies and innovations constantly emerging. For professionals looking to stay ahead of the curve, understanding the latest trends in tiling tools and accessories is essential.
Here’s a look at what’s currently shaping the industry.
- Ergonomic Tiling Tools
The focus on worker health and efficiency has given rise to ergonomic designs in tools. From trowels with cushioned handles to adjustable cutters, these tools reduce strain on the body, allowing for longer working periods without discomfort.
- Advanced Tile Cutters
Modern tile cutters offer more precision and versatility than ever before. Digital alignment guides, laser cutting, and adjustable blades provide for cleaner and quicker cuts, enhancing efficiency and reducing waste.
- Sustainable Materials
Sustainability is a global trend, and tiling tools are no exception. Manufacturers are using recycled and eco-friendly materials, contributing to greener building practices. These sustainable tools often come with the added benefit of being more durable.
- Multi-Functional Tools
One tool that can perform multiple functions is a valuable asset. From combination measuring devices to multi-functional spacers, these tools simplify tasks and reduce the need for carrying a myriad of separate tools, saving both time and space.
- Technology Integration
From smart levelling systems that work with mobile apps to digital measuring tools that offer unparalleled accuracy, technology is becoming increasingly integrated into tiling tools. This connectivity enhances efficiency and allows for more precise work.
- Wet Room Specialisation
With the growing popularity of wet rooms, specialized tools and accessories designed for this particular application are emerging. This includes waterproofing kits, specialised drainage systems, and bespoke cutting tools for unique wet room designs.
- Improved Adhesive and Grouting Systems
Modern adhesive and grouting systems are designed to work in harmony with new tiling materials, such as large-format tiles and complex patterns. These innovations allow for stronger bonds and finer finishes, resulting in more resilient and attractive surfaces.
- Customisation Options
Customisable tools that adapt to specific needs and preferences are now more readily available. This includes adjustable trowels and cutters that can be fine-tuned to a particular job, enhancing control and end results.
