A new solution for tiles on Butynol
Councils and building auth-
orities in Auckland and
elsewhere in New Zealand
no longer allow tiles to be
glued to Butynol or other
similar waterproof membranes.
This directly affects decks and
balconies, particularly when
there is a room underneath.
Councils require that any
cladding over Butynol be easily
removed to enable inspection
of the membrane to ensure its continued integrity.
Until recently, the only acceptable solution to this
problem was to use plastic ''deck jacks''. These are
adjustable supports that hold thick tiles or pavers in
the form of a floating floor. Unfortunately, standard
porcelain floor tiles are simply not strong enough to
be supported by their corners on deck jacks.
The disadvantages of deck jack systems include their
expense (a typical deck will use dozens of jacks and
the special tiles are costly too), they are complicated
to set up and adjust (even using the 'self-levelling'
jacks), they can use only a very limited range of
suitable tiles, they are heavy, and because the
minimum jack height (not including the tile on the top
of it) is around 60mm, they require the deck to be
specifically engineered to cope
with their use.
Our supplier, Refin Ceramiche
of Italy has recently developed
a system called 'Set& Step' that
was initially designed to
provide a tile alternative to
exterior paving - but which
also solves the problem of tiles
Set & Step is a globally
patented Refin system that
uses specially designed plastic frames to support
standard porcelain exterior tiles. The plastic frames
simply clip together and can be easily removed if
The porcelain tiles used in Set & Step must be made
for the system (they have a bevelled edge to
acommodate the frame) but more than a dozen of
Refin's 450x450 exterior-rated tiles are made to use
the system so there's considerable choice.
Because of Designa Tile's close relationship with Refin,
we will be one of the very few companies in New
Zealand with access to Set & Step.

Keep warm and keep healthy Working hard: Work in progress at Kai Point
Let's face it, power prices aren't coming down any time
soon, even with the political tinkering going on now, and
proposed in the future.
The only way to balance the family budget is to use Kai Coal,
picked up directly from the mine. Local coal is, quite simply,
the lowest cost heating option out there.
It's common sense:
It's mined locally.
There's no commodity price attached to it, as with gas.
There's no expensive process to manufacture it, like wood
pellets, oil and gas.
It's not transported for thousands of miles, like gas, diesel
and wood pellets.
It doesn't lose energy on the way, like
And there's no monopoly of producers
and suppliers, as in the case of electricity
(there's only one grid, after all).
So for those with a multifuel fire in their
homes, try the Kai Coal.
At the mine it costs a mere $102 per tonne:
That's about two cents per standard unit of
energy. Compare that to electricity at more
than 33 cents per unit (depending on your
supplier). Even with a heat pump running at
240 per cent efficiency, electricity for
heating still equates to around 13 cents per
unit. Wood pellets at $9.95 per 15kg come
in about the same, and both oil (diesel) and
gas appear to be more expensive, at about
17 cents and 20 cents per unit respectively.
So what the numbers tell us is that instead
of heating one room in your house with
expensive fuels, heat the whole house with
coal, and end up with a cosy, dry and healthy home for you
and your family.
If you want to get really serious about a healthy, warm home,
then taking a further step to central heating makes abundant
Coal-fired, of course. In fact it's possible to get hold of first
class, fully compliant and locally made coal-fired boilers
designed specifically for the job.
If you'd like to find out more about the peerless warmth and
affordability of Kai Coal, and solutions for heating your home
this chilly season, please call us on (03) 418 0030 for details.
