Raimondi Landscapers VITE Levelling Kit (Ideal for 20mm Porcelain)
The Raimondi Landscapers VITE Levelling Kit is perfect for professional landscapers & tilers to install porcelain and all types of natural stone from 14mm – 26mm thick. The VITE Tile Levelling Kit is a tool-free, tile levelling system which comprises of a threaded cap and clip which is tightened by hand.
The threaded spacer clip is inserted underneath the paving slab or tile edge into the bed of adhesive, prior to the next adjacent tile being laid. The VITE Levelling cap is then threaded onto the clip and tightened until the tiles are level with one another. The cap is easy to use and thread due to its ergonomic shape. With grips for your fingers, the caps can be easily tightened and spin freely with no annoying cross threading, meaning that the caps can be placed and spun directly down to the tile surface in seconds.
The Raimondi VITE caps also feature a hollowed out design, so tilers and landscapers are able to easily see the grout joint between the intersections of the tiles. The Raimondi Landscapers VITE Levelling Kit is simple to use. This easy install levelling system speeds up the process of laying tiles and paving slabs, whilst removing the risk of ‘lippage’ between flags. The Levelling Kit can be used both internally and externally, on floors and walls. The 5mm spacers are the most commonly used by professional landscapers, especially for porcelain or sawn natural stone.

What is the Raimondi Landscapers VITE Levelling Kit?
The VITE Levelling Kit is a widely used tool that is designed especially for levelling tiles and paving slabs, preventing the creation of ‘lippage’ during tile installation. Levelling kits help to interlock the tiles, ensuring that the tiles remain level once laid, achieving a smooth, flat surface whilst your adhesive dries. The VITE levelling kit ensures that tiles do not sit one higher than the other, if they do it can lead to trip hazards. The VITE levelling kit prevent movement of tiles when setting, to leave you with a perfectly level surface.
Once the adhesive has dried and you are ready to remove the strips, simply remove using a rubber mallet or your foot, to knock the strips & caps out of the grout line. Make sure to knock your clips in the same direction as grout joint to achieve the best break and have no parts of the clip remaining.
How do I use the Vite Levelling Kit?
To use the Raimondi Levelling Kit, you lay your tiles on a bed of adhesive, using the clips and spacers to ensure that the tiles are placed the same distance apart, and to ensure that one tile isn’t higher than the other. Once the adhesive is set, you simply remove the cap by hitting it with a rubber mallet, or with your foot. It is important to hit the cap parallel to the joint line to ensure a clean break.
What is ‘Lippage?’
Lippage occurs when tiles or slabs, laid next to each other, are not laid in a uniform level. This issue exposes the edge of the higher, adjacent, protruding tile forming a ‘lip’. The risk of lippage, is that it can cause trip hazards. Using the Raimondi Landscapers VITE Levelling Kit will help avoid issues with ‘lippage’.
