Title
(EN) TILE ALIGNMENT AND LEVELING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE MISE À NIVEAU DE TUILES ET D'ALIGNEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
A tile alignment and leveling device for aligning and leveling tiles as they are being secured to a substrate. The device includes a flexible member, a bottom plate, and an intermediate member. The intermediate member spaces the flexible member and bottom plate a predetermined vertical distance. The flexible member has a first end and a second end. The first end is pivotally combined with the intermediate member thereby allowing the flexible member to pivot between a first position and a second (downward) position. In use and in its second position, the flexible member second end exerts force against the top of the tiles to help align and level the tiles as they are secured to the substrate.
(FR)
Dispositif de mise à niveau de tuiles et d'alignement pour aligner et mettre à niveau des tuiles lorsqu'elles sont en train d'être fixées à un substrat. Le dispositif comprend un élément flexible, une plaque de fond, et un élément intermédiaire. L'élément intermédiaire espace l'élément flexible et la plaque inférieure à une distance verticale prédéterminée. L'élément flexible a une première extrémité et une seconde extrémité. La première extrémité est associée de manière pivotante à l'élément intermédiaire, permettant ainsi à l'élément flexible de pivoter entre une première position et une seconde position (vers le bas). Lors de l'utilisation, et lorsqu'il se trouve dans sa seconde position, la deuxième extrémité de l'élément flexible exerce une force contre le dessus des tuiles pour favoriser l'alignement et la mise à niveau des tuiles lorsqu'elles sont fixées sur le substrat.
