A new swimming pool complex used Schlüter profiles to make the extensive tiled area safe and durable, while also giving a good quality finish to the tiles.
A total of 8,000 square metres of tiles included floors, walls and stairs. The profiles gave solutions for transitions with other surfaces, corners and exposed edges, and stair treads. They protect the edges of wall tiles from damage, giving symmetrically rounded corners, allow for expansion and movement, and provide a high degree of slip resistance and increased visibility on the front edge of stairs. One of the profiles, the Schlüter-SCHIENE-E, is specifically designed to withstand high levels of mechanical stress and is especially suited for applications needing to be resistant to chemicals and acids - such as swimming pools, the food industry, breweries, dairies, hospitals and large kitchens.
