The Uncoupling Principle

10:15   - 11:15  

This seminar will examine the Uncoupling Principle, which is now recognized in the Tile Council of America's 2001 Handbook for Ceramic Tile Installation. Review the history behind the Uncoupling Principle and examine the evolution of tile setting techniques, along with the benefits and limitations of each stage of development. The individual functions that are inherent to an uncoupling system will be discussed and the major implications for tile and stone installations revealed. At the end of this program, the participant will be able to: 1) comprehend the basics of the uncoupling principle and its relationship to the tile and stone industry; 2) recognize new areas of installation that can be attained through the utilization of an uncoupling system; and 2) interpret and apply the new details and applications found in the current TCA Handbook.

  • Biography: Andy Gallio has been immersed in the construction industry for the past 25 years. He began in the residenton homebuilding trade as a framer and concrete placer. Due to his accrued knowledge of plan details and compliance with building codes and practices he was promoted to manager for a national homebuilder. He has had specific training in the field of concrete specification and testing as well as Computer Aided Design (CAD). His experience in all aspects of construction advanced him to position o writing and implementing scopes of work for subcontractors. He ensured adherence to best buillding practices including third prty inspection processes specific to waterproofing and building envelopes. In 2009 he went to work for a national tile distributor in Reno Nevada. In this position he implemented training programs pertaining to the tile industry and based on the TCNA handbook. This included teaching tile contractors and sales personnel about proper installation and utilization of setting materials necessary to achieve valid results inrelation to tile assemblies. Andy is currently employed with Schluter Systems andfor the past 4 years has continued to provide instruction to installers as well as architects on the proper usage of materials necessary in the tile industry. Working at Schluter Systems has also expanded his knowledge and training in rlation to achieving goals established by the LEED (Lledership in Energy and Environmental Design) organization.

Sintered Compact Surfaces for Building Facades

11:15   - 12:15  

Materials used on building facades need to withstand many things, including water, wind, sunlight, and sometimes severe weather conditions. They also need to hold up to the effects of people who may inadvertently or even intentionally cause damage. Choosing a material to use for a facade is certainly influenced by the ability to hold up over time but also by the available size and weight, not to mention the appearance, of the material. Being able to install it in a manner that is efficient and cost-effective usually rounds out the criteria for selecting a building material for building facades. There is one new product category that will be the focus of this course, namely sintered compact surfaces that can be used for curtain walls, rain screens, siding applications, and other common wall systems for both residential and commercial buildings.
