Tile planks

I am preparing to lay 1000sq ft of 6x24 tile planks using the RLS leveling system with 1/8" grout line and not sure how many of the RLS clips I will need.

Can someone help
Mike

6x24 tiles cover 1 sq ft each. If you want to use a clip under every corner, that would be 4000.

I would check the tiles to see how flat they are. Place 2 tiles face to face and see if there are any gaps between the tiles at the ends. In my opinion, with tiles that aren't flat, using a leveling system to pull up the corners flush with the neighboring tiles may not help with lippage.

Hi Mike,

You're going to need a lot. On that size tile you will need 4 on a side, if it is like a random hardwood look, and one on the end. Five pieces per tile. The adjacent tile's levelling clips and wedges will be against the other sides of said tile. A 6x24 is a square foot so you'll need to buy 5000 clips and figure on getting about 600 - 700 of the reusable wedges. I say 600 because you probably won't set more than 120 sq ft in a day.

I used four per tile on my own house, which is the same size tile as yours.

You won't use quite that many on every tile, since you don't count the edges against the walls, but it'll be close to that.

Ron, next time review your post and scroll down before you hit submit and you'll see if I beat you to the punch. You have no excuse, I only use two fingers to type. A chicken pecker.
