Stuart Bray, owner of SB Solutions, is increasingly in demand for domestic tiling jobs around Cheshire. Stuart decided he needed to buy a new Raimondi wet saw to help him achieve a professional finish with his prestigious projects. Stuart visited us in our Appleton warehouse and examined the various saws we offer. He thought long and hard between the ZOE 130 and the Pikus 130 and decided the Pikus 130 was the machine for him. Both are excellent machines which are capable of years of faithful service. Jim Stott, our National Sales and Marketing Director offered to deliver the machine but after Jim had demonstrated the Pikus’s capabilities, Stuart was keen to start using the machines on site, so Jim helped load the machine into Stuart’s pick up!

Professional tiler, Steve Troy uses Raimondi tile handling – When Steve Troy needed new large slab handling equipment and a levelling system, he know he could rely on Tilers Tools. Steve is the more prosperous looking one on the right
For large slab handling, Steve uses our range of Raimondi equipment and tools including our benches, Free-Cut and Easy Move systems as well as being a fan of the Raimondi Levelling System which has an increasing following in the UK.
As large slabs are becoming increasingly popular, tilers need the right tools and equiment to handle them properly. Jim Stott, our National Sales and Marketing Director is frequently in demand to provide demonstrations of the right equipment, tools and consumables and how to use them properly. If you wish to discuss your large slab project, or have any queries about our large range of equipment, tools and consumables, feel free to give Jim a call – he’s a professional tiler with many years of experience – 07860 502410.
The Raimondi DOUBLE EASY-MOVE ADV with cross-bars is designed for handling large tiles and slabs up to 320 x 160cm. It has telescopic profiles allowing variable extension for maximum versatility. Once attached, the EASY-MOVE’s sturdy construction means that slabs can easily be pulled from crates or pallets for smooth and safe handling. Handles have positioning options to adapt to the height of the edge of the crate. Provided with 8 stain-proof vacuum suction cups (150mm diameter) with vacuum guages and crossbars.
Please note that the EASY-MOVE system is designed for applying to slabs while they are on a firm base and in a horizontal position. Downward pressure should be applied to the vacuum cups when pumping them to create the suction. The system is not designed to be applied to tiles in the vertical position, such as when they are on an A Frame, however once correctly applied on the horizontal, the slab can be gently lifted onto the vertical position, checking the vacuum cups periodically that they are maintaining suction.

Raimondi Levelling System supplied by Tilers Tools at showroom. These porcelain planks were being laid one-third brick bonded.
Despite a slight bend in the tiles, lipping was avoided by using the Raimondi Levelling System (RLS) supplied by Tilers Tools. You can see the full range here
PREMIUM QUALITY CLIPS FOR EVERY NEED
R.L.S. has a range of high quality clips (bases) which meets all Tilers Tools’ clients’ needs – here’s some technical stuff!
R.L.S. offers several kind of clips suitable for materials of minimum thickness 3 mm and maximum 20 mm (1/8” – 3/4”) and which leave joint between the tiles of 1.5 mm, 3 mm or 4 mm (1/16” – 1/8” – 5/32”).
All R.L.S. clips have the breaking point very close to the plane where the tiles lay (1.2 mm – 3/64”). This means the system can be used without any problem even on very thin tiles (3 mm – 1/8”) since it still remains a gap of 1.8 mm (5/64”) for the grout.
R.L.S. clips are made with premium quality plastics whose composition has been severely tested to ensure the perfect balance between elasticity and resistance.
R.L.S. clips are available in a various packaging (from 100 and up to 2,000 pieces) to best fit the needs and consumption of each job site..
The RLS is suitable for all tile installations – this picture is of the Raimondi Levelling System supplied by Tilers Tools at showroom – shop floors, factories, car showrooms are all ideal locations.
Shopfitters, contractors and architects are all specifiying Tilers Tools as the only authorised supplier of Ramondi equipment in the UK.
All the models of the R.L.S. clips use the same wedge and the same pliers.

We recently met with a well known, national supplier of paving. We demonstrated the ZOE wet saw (or bridge saw) and left them with a model to use for themselves.
Results were great! And their judgement?
it is quiet
it has a strong build quality is a lot less messy than other brands they’d tried,
the cutting quality is impressive
overall that it is the best bridge saw they have experienced.
As a result they were so impressed that they bought one for their own use.
The photos show samples of the sort of paving the company and their clients need to cut. The Zoe wet saw cuts as cleanly as a whistle and with minimum effort.
Zoe – for the ultimate cutting experience
ZOE 105, ZOE 130 and ZOE 150. This is by far the most popular wet saw we sell and has had great reviews from our clients – a national paving supplier described the ZOE Wet Saw as the best wet saw they had ever seen. The ZOE Wet Saw has a powerful 2.2HP motor, capable of cutting really challenging materials such as granite and thick porcelain tiles. Because of this it is fast becoming a favourite with landscapers as well as tilers. The ZOE has the removable tank, uses a 350mm diameter diamond blade and will cut through 120mm thick material on a single pass.
Our website pages describe all of our Wet Saws, Wet Cutters & Bridge Saws. Please read our blog on the full Raimondi range here.
