An update from CTDA’s Representative to ANSI ASC A108:

A revision for steel framing in A108.11 is being forwarded to the backerboard committee for review and resubmittal.

Two additional submissions have been made:

  1. Adding tub wall brackets
  2. Changes to toilet flange installations.

There is still work to be done before these are ready to be considered for ballot.

A lengthy discussion was held regarding proposed standards for Thin Tile or Panels in Draft Format for Gauged Porcelain Tile & Gauged Porcelain Tile Panels/Slabs A137.3 & A108.19. These products are considered to be tiles or panels over the size of one square meter. Several issues were discussed and it was determined that there is still a lot of work to be done on this project with a sense of urgency for completion.

It was suggested that a several items need to be reviewed in ANSI A137.1. Feedback from the group will be incorporated into a submittal and balloted in the next few months.

There was discussion of the need to do a complete review of all the A108 standards as there is a lot of information that needs updating. Most likely this will be completed in sections.

The next meeting is scheduled in conjunction with TSP on Friday afternoon 10/21/16.
