In this class, StonePeak Ceramics will teach the newest innovative solutions in the porcelain tile industry: the ANSI 137.3 Standards for Gauged Porcelain Tiles & Gauged Porcelain Tile Panels/Slabs. This standard has set forth the newest trends in floor and wall installations by re-defining the manufacturing process. StonePeak will also review the new ANSI A108.19 specifications for the installation procedures for these new large-format panels.

Attendees will learn the sustainability aspects of recycled content, closed-loop processes, energy savings, better indoor air quality, ADA complaint slip-resistant surfaces, and Environmental Product Declarations using Green Squared standards. Participants will see the unlimited design potential of this new technology from furniture to floors to walls to interior artworks to exterior ventilated facades using case history studies.
