B.5 Covering assemblies over waterproofing layers according to DIN 18195

The sloped support structure is protected against permeating water with a waterproofing assembly that meets the requirements of DIN 18195. Schlüter®-TROBA-PLUS is installed as a drainage membrane between the waterproofing layer and the load distribution layer (screed) to drain away seepage. The passive capillary bonded drainage and uncoupling membrane Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN is installed in the thin-bed mortar between the screed and the tile covering. This results in the broad ventilation of the top covering, which in turn promotes the quick and even drying/curing of the thinbed mortar.

B.5 Waterproofing, drainage, load distribution layer, bonded drainage and uncoupling

  1. Capillary layer

  2. Concrete slab

  3. Sloped screed

    The construction has to be sufficiently sloped (1.5 - 2%) to allow for proper drainage.

  4. Waterproofing assembly according to DIN 18195.

  5. Schlüter®-TROBA-PLUS

    Passive capillary membrane for the effective drainage of seepage and ventilation. It is important to ensure a drainage channel.

    Cement screed according to DIN 18560-2 or pervious mortar.

  7. Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN

    Polyethylene drainage mat installed using the thin-bed method, for bonded drainage, ventilation and uncoupling. It is important to ensure a drainage channel.
