Installer Testimonial:
Danny Fulton, Vice President of Fulton Tile & Stone

As a business owner, I’m always looking for efficiencies that are time and cost saving. Ultimately, we decided to work with this newer product, Bosti-Set™. Even though it is a bit more costly than other products, we may have saved close to $5,000 just by using it. And that number is very conservative.”

Challenge:

  • Install 2,500 square feet of gauged porcelain panels for a commercial kitchen classroom
  • 70 gauged porcelain panels to install
  • Faster, more efficient method of installation desired

Solution:

  • Faster installation with 0 VOC product
  • No mixing needed
  • No dust, water or electricity required during installation
  • 80% less weight than conventional mortars

Result:

  • No mixing needed — open and go, offering the customer a better experience
  • Panels can be installed in roughly half the time, even with a smaller work crew
  • Sound reduction as a result of Thickness Control™ Spacer Technology found in Bosti-Set™
