Otto-Graf-Institut Stuttgart: Fire protection test
The research and material testing institute at the University of Stuttgart carried out several comprehensive tests of DryTile’s fire protection properties.
The tests found that DryTile is flame retardant and generates no smoke, putting it in the Bfl-s1 classification.
The test certificate is available upon request.
Living Building Challenge DECLARE label
The Living Building Challange is “the world’s most rigorous proven performance standard for buildings.”
The entire DryTile system, including the porcelain, cork, and grout, is LBC Complaint and contains no Red List ingredients.
The LBC Complaint status conveys that DryTile used the Proprietary Ingredient exception, meaning less than 1% of the total product is not disclosed on the public label to protect proprietary ingredients.
General requirements for DryTile
When fitting large-size tiles, whether classic tiles or DryTile, the subsurface must display a level of evenness that goes beyond the requirements of DIN 18 202.
The flatness tolerance is 2 mm for every 2 m of length (1/8 inch for every 10 feet).
Leveling and smoothing compounds can create a suitably even subsurface on which the large-size tiles can be laid.
We are happy to advise you in detail on the right way to prepare your subsurface.
ITA Wiesbaden: Improvement in impact sound
Tests by the ITA Wiesbaden showed a reduction in impact sound of 13 to 18 dB, depending on the system variant used.t.
