Features to Look for In Quality Tile Saws

Efficiency With Tile Installation Saws

When it comes to cutting tile, one of the most important aspects to consider is choosing tile installation saws. Having a saw that is designed for the task can be the difference between getting the job done and getting it done efficiently with outstanding results. Just like landscapers need quality landscaping saws, tilers want good tile saws. Here, we will take a brief journey through some important factors to consider when you are selecting a saw for installing tile.

Accuracy in Tile Cutting

By nature, tiles are often appealing because they have clean lines and straight edges. That means irregularities in the tile itself or mistakes during the installation process stand out like a sore thumb. Because of this, cutting tile accurately is a key to getting results that make the project look professional, clean, and precise. These are all factors that figure into the efficiency of the project.

Tile Cutting Speed

For smaller projects, this might not be an issue. However, on larger jobs you will want to be able to cut through your tiles quicker and more accurately. It is one thing to cut tiles for a 1/2 bath and entirely another for cutting tiles for a pool deck. Having a quality tile saw will ensure that you will be prepared for larger projects that will require speed and accuracy while cutting a variety of tile materials.

Appealing Tile Saw Features for Efficiency

Tile saws, like other products come in a variety of sizes, styles, and performance capabilities. Some features that you will want to get information about include:

  • Power
  • Blade
  • Portability
  • Performance

Why does all this matter? Simply stated, These are the features that will yield the results and speed for tile installers. Here is a brief description of these roles in efficient tile installation.

An Efficient Tile Saw With Horse Power

To run a quality blade, your saw needs the horsepower to give you a clean, precise cut. And having the power to run through the full length of the cut is important too. We offer a range of tile saws for a variety of cut lengths. The ATS tile saws are available in 4 cutting lengths and offer a 1.5 HP (3 HP for HT series) motor to give you the power you need.

Blade Quality & Style

The quality of blade that you equip your saw with will have an impact on the performance. Getting a blade designed to cut tile is a good step to take when setting up your tile saw. It is not hard to find good quality blades for cutting tile. In fact, you can even get blades designed for porcelain tiles. But, for the blade to do its job, it needs sufficient power.

Portability is Efficient

The portability of the tile saw is a contributor to the efficiency of the project. Being able to get the tile installation saws to a location that is convenient can boost the speed of the project. If you are going to work efficiently, you’ll need portability. The ATS is available with collapsible legs, transportation wheels, and a handle for easy portability; allowing you to set up in the most convenient location for the job.

Performance Features

Your wet tile saw must have the features necessary to allow it to perform the tasks needed for the project at hand. Some of these features include:

  • Beveling Capacity
  • Plunge Cut Capability
  • Self-contained Water Recycling Tray & Pump

These features provide the environment in which tile professionals can produce great work efficiently. The tilting bridge on the ATS and ATS HT Series saws allows for bevel cuts to be made. Additionally, the plunge cutting mechanism allows you to fine-tune the cutting depth which contributes to the accuracy and efficiency of the saw.
