What Is Lippage in Tiles
When a set of tiles is laid end to end across the floor or walls of a house, they really enhance the beauty. But sometimes, due to natural shrinkage or curving of the tiles, there is a difference in elevation between adjacent tiles. This is called lippage, and sometimes the cause is as simple as poor workmanship too.
The Need for DTA Tile Leveling
We at Tile Pro Depot believe that a DTA lippage leveling system is very important is today’s construction. There is a growing trend towards larger and larger tiles, due to which it is difficult to maintain the same level at all ends of the tile. Such uneven faces of tiles not only look unsightly, but they might also pose a safety hazard. A good DTA lippage levelling system can ensure that whatever the size of the tiles used, they are perfectly levelled and stay that way. This is necessary even if the process seems a little time taking at first.

Made of sturdy plastic, our DTA caps helps to hold the extra-long strap in place, while you use the gun to press the two adjacent tiles down to the same level.

Our lippage spacers can be used in both small as well as large tiling systems. It is a T shaped piece of sturdy plastic whose ‘legs’ are inserted below the two adjacent tile with the top of the spacer sticking out, so that it can be worked on by the cap and the gun.
