Tile Spacer - Vitrex LASH Level Align Space Hold

When laying tiles one of the biggest problems most people face is ensuring that the finished floor surface is lippage-free. Vitrex have an answer for this and it is called the LASH, Level, Align, Space and Hold. The LASH is not just a Vitrex tile spacer, it is far more.

So what does the Vitrex LASH do and how does it work?

The LASH clip work in two dimensions, firstly they space tiles out evenly so that the same amount of grout is visible between each tile, secondly and more importantly, they sit under the base of the tile ensuring that they remain at the same height as the neighbouring tile.

This is all achieved by the patented LASH system. The clip is has two equal feet that sit under the tiles maintaining them at an even height. To ensure they stay level, a wedge is placed into the clip to keep it in place. The clip thickness means that the tiles sit evenly next to each other, keeping an even spacing. Once the tile adhesive sets, it is easy to remove the protruding part of the LASH clip, simply kick the clip and it will snap off at a specially designed break-point.

Why use the Vitrex LASH system?
  • It is very easy to at any skill level.
  • Great for use with tiles of varied thickness.
  • Requires minimal effort to install and remove.
  • Virtually eliminates lippage.
  • Prevents tiles from moving during installation.
  • Speeds up installation.
  • Less time spent on the task means more done in a day.
How to use the LASH system.

Step 1. Slide two LASH clips under the tile and into the tile adhesive approx 50mm from each end. Place the second tile.
Step2. Slide the reusable LASH wedge into the clip to ensure the tiles remain level and held in place.
Step 3. Once the adhesive has set, simply kick the top of the clip and it will snap off leaving you with a beautifully aligned and spaced floor.
