Crack Suppression Explanation

What is the problem?  All building materials expand and contract with changes in temperature and atmospheric conditions. All materials move different amounts and at varying rates and it’s these differences that create stresses (shear forces) that can be disastrous to tiled surfaces.

What does this mean?  Tiles, grout and adhesive move very little with temperature change but wooden floors do. As the floor expands it will pull the tiled floor with it, expanding the floor at the weakest points, i.e. the grout joints, and cracks will appear.

Why is matting the solution?  The Tile Rite waterproof floor matting reduces the risk of these shear forces damaging your floor tiles through its innovative fleece layer. This fleece layer on the floor matting provides a protective barrier between your tiled surface and the floor substrate. As the floor moves laterally, the fleece will decouple from the waterproof layer of the mat so allowing the floor to move but not the tiles on top of it, and so prevent cracking, whilst maintaining the 100% waterproof protection of matting system.
