MLT – Mechanical Lippage Tuning System

The MLT SYSTEM™ is a patented installation system, simple and revolutionary for the installation of floors and walls. With the exception of the bottom plate it is fully reusable, making it ecofriendly and economical.

The MLT SYSTEM™ enhances the installer’s skill and ensures the installation of flat floors and walls by eliminating possible lip-page during the install and curing process. The combination of the nylon and stainless steel strap makes it possible to achieve a minimum seam of 1/64” (ideal for thin tile countertop install) up to 3/8” grout joints.

The MLT SYSTEM™ is ideal for setting large format porcelain, thin tiles, and slab up to ¾”. For the installation of thin tiles and highly polished marbles, a rubber foot for the cap is available to prevent mars, scratches and moving of the thin tile, when vibrated or installed.

The caps and strap are designed and made to last a virtual lifetime by retrofitting the cap with a stainless steel insert. The MLT SYSTEM™ has achieved an eco-friendly product while maintaining the highest quality and performance of any mechanical edge leveling system.
