The drain bodies are made of high-impact polypropylene (PP).
The bonding flange insert consists of acrylnitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and features an adhesive flange with a fleece coated surface.
The Schlüter-KERDI collar is a crackbridging waterproofing membrane of soft polyethylene (PE) with a special fleece fabric laminated on both sides for effective anchoring in the tile adhesive.
The stainless steel grate is made of V2A (material no. 1.4301), but can also be supplied in stainless steel V4A (material no. 1.4404).
Material properties and areas of application
The drain bodies, bonding flange inserts, and covers are categorised as Class K3 in accordance with DIN EN 1253, "Gullies for buildings." This class refers to surfaces without vehicle traffic, such as wet rooms in apartments, nursing homes, hotels, schools, public bathroom and shower facilities as well as terraces, galleries, and balconies.
Drains installed in areas exposed to freezing temperatures should not include an odour trap. If an odour trap is needed, it must be installed in a different, frost-proof location, for example inside a building.
All horizontal drain bodies, with the exception of Schlüter-KERDI-DRAIN-BASE, have an inlet and an outlet. The inlet is shipped with a cap. To guarantee the regular filling of the odour trap, the inlet may be connected, e.g. to a sink.
In special cases, the suitability of the selected floor drainage system must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses.
