The Tuscan Leveling System is two-piece cap & strap installation system that can assist anyone in the installation of ceramic, stone, marble, granite and large format slab tiles. The Tuscan Leveling System is designed to create a virtual lippage free installation when used on floors or walls. This system interlocks the tiles, creating a single flat slab surface while the setting material is curing. The interlocking design reduces and in most cases eliminates settling from shrinkage and the possibility of warping. The Tuscan Leveling system reduces the need to re-lift tiles to add more mud and/or the process of shimming tiles; thus increasing the speed of installation, all the while creating that much desired lippage free mirror surface.
