Schlüter-DILEX-KSBT is a maintenance free movement profile to bridge structural joints within tile and natural stone coverings. Schlüter-DILEX-KSBT assists in reducing the transmission of impact sound.
If the closed movement zone is unable to absorb movements, the joint spacer can be cut open. In this manner, the 20 mm wide insert can absorb movements of ± 5 mm and the 30 mm wide insert, movements of ± 10 mm. The profile can be used in floor areas as well as wall areas, for a continuous, uniform appearance. It is particularly suited for use in walls and ceilings made from gypsum board panels; it can also be integrated directly into the plaster or mortar screed.
The trapezoid perforated anchoring legs, made of stainless steel or aluminium, are connected by a 20 mm or 30 mm wide, soft movement zone made of thermoplastic rubber. The rubber insert can be replaced in case of damage.
The anchoring metal legs effectively protect the adjoining edges of the floor covering. The broad movement zone limits the load bearing capacity of the profile when subjected to high point loads or when heavy weights are placed directly on the soft zone. A reinforcement cover strip is available for the 30 mm wide profile and additional measures can be adopted for the 20 mm wide profile, please contact us for advice.
