LATICRETE, a global manufacturer and leader of premium installation and finishing systems for the building industry, has developed a library of LATICRETE Technical Design Manuals which are now available as eBooks for the iPad from the online Apple iBook store, for the Kindle on the Amazon website... and, for the Nook on the Barnes & Noble online Nook Book store, as well.
According to Henry B. Rothberg, LATICRETE Senior Vice President, Training, "It's all about innovation. LATICRETE is committed to innovation with regards to tile and stone installation materials, methods and technologies. Innovation in services and support for the design and construction communities. Progressive architects & designers, distributors and tile contractors continue to appreciate and take advantage of the rapid access of information via eBooks on tablet devices such as the iPad, Nook and Kindle."
The LATICRETE Technical Manuals currently available as eBooks include Animal Health and Wellness Facilities Technical Design Manual; Industrial Tile and Paver Applications Technical Design Manual; Mass Transit Ceramic Tile and Stone Technical Design Manual; Medical, Educational and Hospitality Facilities; Tiled Steam Room and Steam Shower Technical Design Manual and Tiled Swimming Pools, Fountains and Spas Technical Design Manual. All are available wirelessly to users' tablets for just $.99 apiece, or for free via www.laticrete.com/manuals. The process of downloading LATICRETE Technical Design Manuals is a quick and simple procedure, that takes even a neophyte eBook user only a few moments.
"LATICRETE recognized and quickly addressed the potential of offering technical eBooks, and today we now provide a library of not only tile & stone installation technical design manuals but also, specifications, drawings and product catalogs," continued Rothberg. "Clearly, Bill Gate's prophecy of 'Information At Your Fingertips' has arrived!"
"This is clearly the wave of the future," concluded Rothberg. "For example, when hearing that officials from progressive countries such as South Korea have openly stated that paper textbooks will be replaced with electronic tablets in all state-run public schools by 2015, we know we're progressing in the right direction globally with our eBook offerings."
