Movement Joints, Expansion Joints And Control Joint Profiles

The movement joints, expansion joints and control joint profiles of our Schlüter®-DILEX series offer maintenance free and functional solutions for all relevant movement joints in tile coverings. The range includes profile types for movement joints, expansion joints and control joints, as well as edge and transition movement and expansion joints.

All profiles are installed at the same time as the tile covering. A wide variety of Schlüter®-DILEX movement and expansion joint profiles in various material combinations are available in accordance with the expected mechanical or chemical stresses on the covering.

For more information, or to find your nearest distributor, contact Schlüter-Systems Ltd on +44 (0) 1530 813396.

Structural joints

Structural joints (expansion joints) are joints required for static or engineering reasons, which divide a building in various movement segments. They run through all load bearing and non load bearing parts of a building and must be continued in the screed construction and the floor covering at the identical location and in the specified width.

Intermediiate joint profiles in screeds

Intermediate joints create a pattern of limited fields in large areas of screed and covering. They must be continued from the surface of the covering to the separating layer under the screed or to the covering of the insulation or waterproofing layer. In door transition areas, the screed should contain movement joints, which are continued in the covering to reduce stresses occurring at these locations and to prevent the transmission of impact sound. Movement joints in the substrate may not be closed or covered with flooring materials.

Perimeter joints

Perimeter joints are movement joints placed in the screed and the covering along walls and construction elements that penetrate the screed, such as columns. They reduce impact sound transmission and absorb the movements of the floor assembly.

Edge joints may not be rigidly closed, since this may lead to the formation of sound bridges and tensions in the covering construction.

Our range of movement joints includes cove-shaped profiles for wall/floor transitions and inside wall corners. They are designed to allow for especially easy cleaning.
