TCNA is offering a complimentary digital copy of the 2013 TCNA Handbook for Ceramic, Glass, and Stone Tile Installation to Coverings 2013 attendees. Stop by TCNA’s booth in the North American Pavilion to pick up your free digital copy of the Handbook (while supplies last), and take advantage of the substantial discounts on other Tile Council publications.
TCNA Product Performance Testing Laboratory
As the largest tile and stone-only testing facility in the U.S., TCNA’s Product Performance Testing Lab offers unmatched service providing independent, confidential testing to the industry. TCNA staff will be available at Coverings to discuss the wide range of tests TCNA’s lab offers for tile, dimension stone, and installation materials per ASTM, ANSI and ISO standards, as well as lab services to meet the tile industry’s green testing needs.

Green Squared® Certification
TCNA is committed to leading the tile industry in addressing environmental sustainability. While at TCNA’s booth be sure to speak with our staff about Green Squared®, the world’s first consensus-based, multi-attribute sustainability standard and certification program for the tile industry.
With Green Squared the North American tile industry now has a unified position and consistent interpretation of what it means for a product to be green. Encompassing ceramic tiles, glass tiles, setting materials, grouts, backer boards and membranes, Green Squared allows the tile industry to offer complete installation systems of conforming sustainable products – the first offering of its kind by any building material industry.
There are hundreds of Green Squared Certified products available in the marketplace. These products bear a single, easily recognizable Green Squared Certified mark confirming to specifiers and consumers alike that they are truly sustainable.
The increasing number of Green Squared Certified products is especially timely given the continued growth of green building programs and sustainable product procurement programs. For more information on Green Squared and certification to the standard, please visit

Presentations by Tile Council members and the National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) will bring you up to speed on some of the industry’s latest products and will show you how the pros handle a variety of installation challenges. Come by the Installation Stage for ‘how to’ demonstrations to help make your tile and stone projects more successful.
