How to install Tanga stone

Floor tiles:

mortar ratio  – 1:6 (1 bag cement: 3 wheelbarrow sand)

grout ratio    – 1:4 (1 bag cement: 2 wheelbarrow sand)

 

  1. Chip the floor if required.

  2. Lay strings in the subject area; to provide a height guideline. Lay grid from bottom of first area from one side of the wall to the other. Place a piece of wood to ensure it does not move. This ensures even installation throughout.

  3. Sieve the sand.

  4. Sprinkle the Tanga stone side facing the floor with water. Do not soak.

  5. Prepare the mortar.

  6. Install one square meter at a time.

  7. Prepare the grout.

  8. Continue to complete the grout line (of the square meters completed).

  9. Wash completed section sufficiently with water.

  10. Continue step 3 to 9 for remaining area.

We advise to complete both the mortar and grout line in sections, finishing off with a wash before ending the day.

 

Wall tiles:

mortar ratio  – 1:2 (1 bag cement: 1 wheelbarrow sand)

 

  1. Chip the wall slightly to ensure bonding

  2. Sieve the sand

  3. Sprinkle the Tanga stone side facing the wall with water. Do not soak.

  4. Prepare the mortar

  5. Begin installation from the bottom in rows and continue to the top end of the area

  6. Tap each corner and centre softly with a rubber mallet to ensure even installation and bonding

  7. Wash completed section sufficiently with water.
