Beyond Design has won a Bronze in the 2012 International Design Excellence Awards in the Commercial & Industrial Products category for the Husqvarna TS 60 tile saw. The TS 60 was developed to be the most user-friendly, precise, and efficient tile saw on the market today.
Extensive design research was conducted to understand the category and the user's needs. The TS 60 is a robust, full-featured wet tile saw with a revolutionary water containment system. It represents Husqvarna's first entry into the lightweight professional tile saw category and is intended for both DIY and Professional users. The product itself is lighter in weight than most tile saws, only 79 lbs., and extremely mobile.
The most innovative aspect of the TS 60 is its patented Jet Stream Containment System that keeps water from splashing, even while cutting, allowing it to be used inside if necessary. Traditional wet tile saws spray water on the cutting blade which creates significant overspray and mess. The Jet Stream Containment System dramatically reduces water around the cutting area by directing the water through a channel in the conveyor cart, cooling and lubricating the blade before it cuts the material, while also minimizing spray and slurry outside the frame of the saw. The water is flushed out the back of the cart where it is captured by an extendable sleeve and recycled back into the water pan, creating a self-contained cooling system.
