Its mission is to promote professionalism and technical standards in the tiling industry, as well as provide technical support to both members and their customers.
There are a variety of Tile Association committees which meet regularly to manage aspects of the organisation for the benefit of members. Instarmac employee, Martin Cummins joined the association’s Technical Committee following a recommendation over a year ago. Martin and his peers meet to offer full representation on British, European and International standards on tiles, tile fixing, adhesives and grouts. The committee is also responsible for the drafting of TTA technical documents, advice notes and the TTA inspection service.
Martin’s 20+ years of experience spans quality control, product development, helpline advisor, site support, specification and training. Such broad experience provides an excellent basis for tackling industry issues including underfloor heating, resin backed tiles and the current trend for thin tiles.
