Specifier’s Guide to Tiles and Stone
Kickstart Publishing has published the essential 2017 guide for the specification market of tile and stone in print and online. Inside, architects and developers can expect to find pertinent information and insightful commentary on an entire spectrum of subjects relating to the art and science of tile and stone. The 2017 guide covers topics including stone and composites, tiles, adhesives and grouts, and other ancillary products. Further, it features the expertise of editor Joe Simpson, whose unique knowledge of the UK tiling industry has been honed over 25 years of experience.
Released on the 6th of February, the physical version was distributed to over 3,000 practices, and a link to the digital version was emailed to a further 19,000 architects, developers and Facility Managers. In addition to analysing contemporary design trends, the Specifier’s Guide contains invaluable technical information on the installation of tiles in interior and exterior settings. Experts from Mapei, Kerakoll and other respected manufacturers provide their perspectives on subjects ranging from wetroom tanking systems to 3D tiling innovations.
“If you think tiles are just glazed coloured squares or rectangles, it really is time to think again,” editor Joe Simpson contends. Over the course of the 182 page publication he, and the Guide’s wealth of guest contributors, make the case for the “virtually limitless potential” of tile and stone. This potential is truly global, and reflecting that, the Guide provides an overview of the tile industry not only in the UK but all over the world. Brazil, China and a multitude of other countries’ tiling sectors are explored for an in-depth picture of the international marketplace.
The team behind the UK’s pre-eminent trade publication for the professional ceramic tile and calibrated natural stone sector, Tile and Stone Journal, is also responsible for the Specifier’s Guide. Currently in the early stages of production, readers can look forward to receiving their copy of the 2018 Specifier’s Guide in February of next year.
