Genesis Straight Edge Aluminium Medium Duty Tile Trim is one of the most industry recognised brands of tiling trim available.

These tiling trims are available in either 2.5 Metre lengths and supplied in a miilled aluminium finish.
They are available in 8mm, 10mm and 12mm tile trim depth options which makes them ideal to find the right trim to suit your installation.
When choosing the depth of your Genesis Straight Edge Aluminium Medium Duty Tile Trim we recommend allowing an extra 2mm of depth for the bed of adhesive beneath the tile being applied e.g. a 10mm deep tile trim would ideally be fitted with an 8mm deep tile, with a 2mm bed of adhesive beneath it.
Genesis aluminium tile trims create a stylish aesthetical finish as well as an effective protective edge when installed with all kinds of floor tiles, wall tiles and base substrates.
Genesis tile trims are supplied with a transparent protective film offering added protection during transport, storage and installation.

How do I fit Genesis Straight Edge Aluminium Medium Duty Tile Trim ?
To fit Genesis tiling trims, ensure that the base of the tile being applied is positioned onto the widest part of the trim which has perforated sections to allow for tile adhesive to pass through. Position the flat inside edge of the tile trim against the side of the tile and the thinnest top edge should be flush with the front face of the tile.
How do you cut Genesis Straight Edge Aluminium Medium Duty Tile Trim ?
We recommend using a Genesis Mitre block tool and a Genesis hand saw with these tile trims to acheive an accurate clean cut. you can find more information about Genesis mitre blocks and Genesis cutting tools in the related products section on the left of the page.
What products do I use to clean my tile trim ?
No specific cleaning products are required to maintain and clean your metal tile edging trim. We simply recommend using a soft cloth or duster and a everyday cleaning product like polish to remove any smears, stains or finger prints.
How do I know which tile trim size will fit my tiles?
To work out the required tile trim depth to fit your tiles we recommend the following. First measure the depth of your tile in mm and then add an extra 2mm onto this measurement to allow for your tile adhesive. This calculation will provide you with the correct trim depth for your tiles. e.g. 8mm tile depth + 2mm adhesive = 10mm deep tile trim.
How do I work out how many lengths of trim I will need ?
The easiest way to work out how many tiling trim lengths you will need is to measuring the length and height of the tiled area with a tape measure and add these measurements together. This calculation should give you the overall amount of tile trim required in linear metres. Our trims are usually supplied in either 2.5 Metre or 2.7 Metre lengths offering better coverage for large tiled areas.
